The works the Shillim Foundation promotes are experimental interactions between people, media, and landscapes. These projects will feed into a discussion about the future of conservation. The first pilot works will take place at Shillim Retreat - the physical Shillim, in the Western Ghats.

WILD BY DESIGN I: THE ELEMENTS
The initial pilot projects will be conducted by the painter, Vicky Colombet, the dancers Constantin Baecher and Kaitlyn Gilliland, and the composer Erin Gee, working with sound engineer, Joel Gordon, and the architect/landscape designer photographer Linda Pollak.
Each artist will explore the landscape by crafting a new relationship between natural forces—earth, sound, climate, water—and artistic forms:
Amazing evening of performances at Olana State Historic Site last Friday to present the Shillim Foundation. The evening began with a walk through the forest listening to the western Ghat morning forest recordings by sound engineer Joel Gordon. Then we listened Erin Gee's incredible musical performance. Facing the Sunset and mountains, near Frederic Church's home and studio, Constantine Baecher and Traci Finch performed "Mountainscape" a choreography of Constantine Baecher inspired by my drawings "Brumes Series". While Elad Kabilio played Crumb's cello sonata brilliantly

"Distilled" at Bernard Jacobson Gallery
Bernard Jacobson Gallery is pleased to present “Distilled” in their New York location from June 4th to July 29th 2014. There will be an opening reception on June 4th from 6 - 8pm. The exhibition will include work by William Tillyer , Marc Vaux , Christian de Boschnek, Vicky Colombet, Nicola Ginzel, Kazimirar Rachfal, John Scofield, Helen Frankenthaler and Larry Bell .
While the art world is accommodating the publics’ thirst for spectacle and the size of artwork is ever increasing, this show attempts to investigate the appeal of the distilled, the modest and the small. Whether we consider subversive the challenge that a small work offers to the large canvas, or whether we consider relevant the intimate experience afforded to the viewer, is the appeal of the small painting still alive or did it go the way of “cabinet pictures” and religious icons?
"Coherent Surface, Radiant Light "(New York)
Bernard Jacobson Gallery, New York, is pleased to announce their upcoming exhibition: Coherent Surface, Radiant Light, opening on May 1st,
2012. There will be an opening reception on May 11th.
The exhibition explores the artistic objective to depict light, an endeavor that has important historical antecedents. In Cézanne’s opinion light could not be reproduced, “but must be represented by something else, color”. The Fauvists, aware that a painter’s pigments, when mixed are duller than light, developed the practice of using colors pure, as they come out of the tube. Ben Nicholson considered the color of light to be white and Malevich described white as the color of the infinite and the primordial.
With work by Larry Bell, Jake Berthot, Bram Bogart, Vicky Colombet, Rudolf De Crignis, James Hayward, Jason Martin, William Tillyer, and Marc Vaux.
