The Post-Internet era is made up of many different parts, and although they exist independently, they are also connected to each other. As the world is getting older, we are surrounded by much more than what we used to perceive years or decades earlier. We are constantly informed by new things, meaning that we can use them directly, but we are also able to relate them to our previous knowledge and to make new relations between the old and the new, the new and the new-er. This implicit principle could be a guideline to the art of Peter Combe, the new guest of our interview section.

Piero Spadaro is the latest addition to Andrea Schwartz Gallery's roster of represented artists.
A San Francisco native, Spadaro received his BA with high honors in General Fine Arts with a minor in Art History from the Maryland Institute College of Art in Baltimore, MD. He makes use of a variety of media to create textured works evoking the color field tradition as well as a more modern, provocative style.
Spadaro currently lives and works in San Francisco where he owns and manages Hang Art, a contemporary fine arts gallery specializing in emerging artists.
Although Spadaro has participated in a few group shows, his first solo exhibition with Andrea Schwartz Gallery will be in February 2017!
His Artist Statement, CV, and Portfolio may all be found under his personal artist pages.
Alongside artists David Ligare, Odd Nerdrum, Astrid Preston, Julie Heffernan, Holly Lane, Brad Kunkle, Agostino Arrivabene, Kim Keever, Jason Yarmosky, Maria Kreyn, Robin F. Williams, Aron Wiesenfeld, Gillian Pederson Krag, Sandow Birk, and Stephanie Peek, Seamus Conley will explore the idea of Arcadia, a timeless myth, through the lens of contemporary art.
The exhibition opens June 2, 2016 and will run until October 2, 2016.

We go through our lives...bombarded [by]... internal and external forces. Often, our personal stimuli—memories, inspiration, longing, lust—seem to come from somewhere outside ourselves, outside our control," writes San Anselmo painter Jeffrey Palladini. This postmodern concept of human limitations is useful, but only to a point: Sir Kenneth Clark in his Civilisation series stated that artists need a base level of confidence in society. Palladini has found a way out of the despair born of helplessness. Quoting Faulkner's "the past is not even past," Palladini hypothesizes time to be as fluid a medium as the watery beings it supports: "Perhaps moments are not linear and sequential, but looping, repeating, simultaneous." He considers time as relative, and "time's steady march" as possibly just another sociocultural myth.
