Your life is Art

An Artwork By Roy Lichtenstein

Andy Warhol was a famous and well-respected American ‘Pop’ artist, considered even as a ‘Post Renaissance Man’ for his unique and unmatched style. Georgina McMaster art work explores aspects of our natural environment and specifically the animals around us. In using a largely blank background in her paintings, she makes the animal the prominent significant subject and she uses careful compositional techniques to give and bring out the animal’s personality and character. Texture: Fabric texture is completely different from the actual texture of these objects. We don’t usually think about touching these kinds of foods, yet we are invited to here. Colour: Partly local.

Impressionism : a painting about the impression something gave the artist. May not look like the actual subject. Basic shapes and colors without much detail are common. David Smith contemporary paintings are now in many private art collections. His art works are also in collections of Fielden House, House of Lords (London) Glasgow Caledonian University, Miller, Becket and Jackson and The Law Society, Glasgow. Instruments possess different timbres” is a fancy way of saying a trumpet doesn’t sound like a kettle drum. Different resonator shape and material means different partials in the overtone series get emphasized. That’s largely where the signature sound of a class of musical instruments comes from. The decisive action by Papunya artists gave rise to the Desert Art movement as other communities and artists also started painting their stories using modern art materials.

Repetition of basic block shaped houses in a variety of colours against a snow white background, broken now and then by the dark rocks. Soft snow surfaces contrast with the coarse rugged rocky surfaces. Blue appear in the water and sky to further highlight the colours of the houses. Balance: Radial balance, but not exactly symmetrical. This sculpture is highly organized; it is based on the golden section. See Artist’s Comments. Rhythm: A regular graduated rhythm provided by the repeated units, the repetition of the geometric shapes, and the placement of the limbs. Texture: A contrast between rough and smooth surfaces. Movement: There is actual movement of the sculpture, plus the movement of the reflections of the viewers where the work is installed. This is a lovely collection of bridges, pictures and paintings.

In 1919, Mondrian was back in Paris and he started creating paintings that were grid-based. In the 1920’s he exhibited with De Stijl but left the group in 1925. In 1931 he joined the artist association ‘Abstraction-Création’. The intellectual liberty of post-war Paris proved beneficial in making Mondrian embrace pure abstract art for the remaining years of his life. ‘Schilderij No. 1’, a lozenge work which Mondrian finished in 1926 demonstractes a highly extreme form of minimalism.

More successful than Picasso: Kincade’s formula landscape art appeared derived from religious art and scene painting, and its huge success – due to his choice of themes, mocked him to the end – as he wanted acceptance as a real artist, not a calendar and t-shirt illustrator. The 400 franchise shops which sold his art recorded $57 million in four years. What a beautiful hub!

Because music has parallels to spoken language, much research on music and the brain has zeroed in on the similarities and differences between them. The similarities could be clues to more successful methods of using musical cueing to stimulate similar language responses in people with brain injuries. One remarkable example of the functional difference between music and language, however, occurs in people who have suffered a left-side stroke, resulting in a type of aphasia where verbal comprehension still exists but the ability to speak or find the right words is lost. In these cases, the brain lesion is often located in what is called Broca’s area; speech is slow, not fluent, and hesitant, with great difficulties in articulation. Yet, despite the loss of speech, many people with this type of aphasia can sing complete lyrics to familiar songs. This has usually been attributed to the separation of function of the left and right hemispheres of the brain, speech being dominant on the left and singing on the right.

Duaiv, along with Autumn DeForest, Tim Yanke, and Simon Bull (who you will meet next) were the guest artists on the most expensive “free” cruise Mary and I have been on. A meet and greet night is held for each artist where we are introduced to them and they get a chance to tell us a little bit about themselves and their art. It is also the first chance we get to look at what they can do. In Duaiv’s case, it was largely centered around landscapes of one sort or another. In 1898 Hofmann was introduced to Impressionism in Munich at Moritz Heymann’s art school where he studied. His early works clearly reveal this influence, one example of which is the 1902 portrait of his future wife Maria Wolfegg. Hofmann’s early exhibitions were with the ‘New Succession’ in Berlin in 1908 and 1909. An exhibition of more than 250 Soviet and Russian artworks from 1950 – 2000 opens at the Centre Pompidou.

As a result, he was treated by a Jungian psychoanalyst. This is a special kind of expert in emotional health who works to understand the unconscious mind, dreams, and emotions. Pollock was influenced by this kind of investigation of human relations and emotions. This “inside world” would become the subject of his paintings.

Established initially to repatriate artworks and antiquities, Poly has spent $100 million buying objects such as the bronze animal heads from a water-clock fountain that were looted from Beijing’s Summer Palace by British and French troops in 1860; the pieces later turned up in the West. The repatriated objects are showcased in the Poly Art Museum in the sparkling New Beijing Poly Plaza, a glass-enclosed tower designed by Skidmore, Owings & Merrill.
