Bangkok’s Best Galleries And Art Spaces

During my 1978 Artist-in-residency at the University of Adelaide I wrote to black hole physicists around the world pointing out that when Einstein’s mathematical theories were subjected to the universal forces obeying the law of equal and opposite reaction, then later his worldview of physics reality would have to be rewritten. As well as his work on the composition of shapes and colours, Kandinsky had synesthesia. His condition can be seen as a decisive factor in triggering the artist’s desire to create a new artistic language. His senses intertwined and became one, transforming sounds into shapes and colours. Kandinsky’s use of colour is much more than a question of aesthetics; it was inherent to the way he perceived the world. In this abstract painting, each colour has been carefully chosen and is filled with symbolic meaning. In his abstract two-dimensional painting, Kandinsky succeeds in ensuring that the spectator can feel and hear an entire orchestra playing a Wagner opera. Weber, S. (2000). Remembering and Forgiving. In D. Aldridge (Ed.), Music Therapy in Dementia Care (pp. 184-194). London: Jessica Kingsley. But, before rhythm, lets talk about pulse. Like every living organism, music has a pulse – beats (like that of the heart). And although we not always hear it, it is always there. Do you remember when children learn to clap their hands to follow songs? There is a constant, implicit, beat that happens periodically. In some cases, it is in fact played by instruments. For example, in Australian aboriginal music it is often played by clap sticks. Most contemporary artists do not draw rigid distinctions between high art and popular culture. For instance, a number of contemporary artists embrace traditional techniques of fiber art but use them to create unorthodox forms or address current social and political issues. Along these lines, Ghada Amer has used thread to embroider on canvas repeated motifs of nude women engaged in sexual acts, then partially obscured the embroidered images with gestural painted brushstrokes. Her themes include the expression and repression of female sexuality and eroticism in both Western and Islamic societies. Another example of intermixing visual cultures is the complex array of interactions between science and contemporary art , with many artists engaging with scientific imagery and ideas in their practice. For example, Wim Delvoye ‘s ongoing series called Cloaca imagines humans as cyborgs, representing the human digestive system as a kind of biomechanical contraption. Finally, many 21st-century artists are deeply affected by their immersion in global visual culture, which is now made vividly present through online networks. Many artists maintain a personal website, and some create art expressly for dissemination through social media. As always, new technologies provide new opportunities and challenges.

There is, however, a deep distinction between abstracting from appearances, even if to the point of unrecognizability, and making works of art out of forms not drawn from the visible world. During the four or five years preceding World War I , such artists as Robert Delaunay , Wassily Kandinsky , Kazimir Malevich , and Vladimir Tatlin turned to fundamentally abstract art. (Kandinsky is generally regarded as having been the first modern artist to paint purely abstract pictures containing no recognizable objects, in 1910-11.) The majority of even the progressive artists regarded the abandonment of every degree of representation with disfavour, however. During World War I the emergence of the de Stijl group in the Netherlands and of the Dada group in Zürich further widened the spectrum of abstract art. Appropriation Art is the use of pre-existing objects or images with little or no transformation applied to them. The use of appropriation has played a significant role in the history of the arts ( literary , visual, musical and performing arts). In the visual arts, to appropriate means to properly adopt, borrow, recycle or sample aspects (or the entire form) of human-made visual culture. Inherent in our understanding of appropriation is the concept that the new work recontextualizes whatever it borrows to create the new work In most cases the original ‘thing’ remains accessible as the original, without change.

Music is often a social activity that can connect us with each other through singing, listening, and feeling emotions together. Just think about how you and your friends react when your favorite song comes on the radio—the lyrics and beats create a bond between those singing along. Music also brings us closer to the musician, especially during live performance, through the experience of watching, listening, and feeling his or her passion for the art.

The second artwork by Leonardo da Vinci, Mona Lisa is the greatest and most renowned art-piece of all time in the history.

Bearing the world-records of Most Imitated, most written about and most parodied work of art; it is the best-known portrait of all the time. The reason of its fame is the revolutionary work in its depiction and the secret of the smile” of the woman. Every one’s baffling about if the woman is smiling or not. That’s the mystery.
