Your life is Art

Bob Thompson (1937

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. 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. Thank you ery much. I enjoyed it. Berlind, Robert. Thomas Nozkowski, Pace” (exhibition review). The Brooklyn Rail (April 2013): 36, illustrated.

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.

A Creative mind has the ability to make discoveries and create innovations. The greatest minds and thinkers like Albert Einstein, Mozart, and Frank Lloyd Wright all had something in common in that they were constantly exploring their imagination and creativity. Listening to instrumental music challenges one to listen and tell a story about what one hears. In the same sense, playing a musical instrument gives you the ability to tell the story without words. Both require maximum right brain usage which not only exercises one’s creativity but also one’s intellect. Joining materials depend on the modules chosen. Motivation Visuals SC 14, SC 15, SC 16, SC 17. After studying the slides individually, compare them in terms of the modules, and their arrangements. What considerations have the artist made in completing their works? How do the individual items contribute to the overall effect of the work? Experimentation As in Sculpture Project #1, collect some identical units (this time the emphasis is not on linear forms), such as classroom chairs. Starting with a static arrangement, see how these components may be assembled in interesting relation in space., Discuss balance, movement, emphasis. Be sure to view the arrangements from all directions. Suggested Theme Emphasis should be on organization in this project. A theme is not necessary. We offer large-print guides to all of our exhibitions, available online or at the galleries for the duration of the show. For families, our ‘Art Detectives’ series provide fun and engaging exhibition trails that encourage younger children to explore our galleries at their own pace. Moving to music could be considered both an expressive and a receptive music therapy technique. It helps patients feel a deep connection between their minds and bodies. It helps them relax and reduces their stress. With the therapist’s support, they feel more comfortable with who they uniquely are. Mughal art was a major influence on the Rajputs, who made some amazing equestrian paintings of their own. In the Rajput states – or what is now known as Rajasthan – horse art became hugely popular. Paintings depicted the famed Marwari horses (with their false elephant trunks, which decived the elephants into thinking they were baby elephants!) going into battle against elephants, and Rajput royalty, who typically dwarfed their almost-invisible servants with their horses. Rajasthani art was very similar to Mughal artwork , but Rajasthani horse paintings were often painted to celebrate and demonstrate the authority of the Rajput rulers.

Palette – Every serious artist needs a palette but no need to buy an artist one that costs money and will do the same job as recycled ideas or cheaper options. Old Tupperware lids, paper plates, large 10 litre house paint containers and yogurt lids are just a few of the many other ideas I have used. Anything with a flat surface and a variety of sizes is always useful. Thorough cleaning before using is obviously a given. 7. Hofmann often illustrated his lectures with diagrams of the compositional structure and movement in paintings by Piero della Francesca, Giotto, and Rembrandt, as well as Cézanne, Picasso, Braque, and other moderns.

This leads us to the heart of the issue in looking at Reinhardt’s early works on paper—what the artist, following the prompting of interviewer Bruce Glaser in 1966, defined as the drawing problem.” Reinhardt went on to say that his cartoon collages were a way of not drawing and a satire on all kinds of drawing, art manners, and devices. When I was a newspaper staff artist I didn’t do any drawing at all one year. All I did was paste up nineteenth-century engravings from a small collection of clippings.”⁷ So it was a way of working out your drawing problems, in the newspapers,” said Glaser, to which Reinhardt responded, Once and for all.”⁸ In other words, drawing—or figuring out how not to—was a central issue in Reinhardt’s oeuvre from the beginning. Wow John, thank you for the gallery tour. I love art, and artists and knowing about them. I have never heard of any of the McCubbin family of artists.

Transparent: The quality of allowing light to pass through but not to the extent that the viewer can see through the colour. Two-Dimensional: Having length and width. Two-Point Perspective: Perspective formula using two vanishing points to which all parallel lines extend. Unity: The total effect of a composition resulting from the combination of all the work’s components. Value: The relative degree of lightness or darkness attributed to an area of colour by the amount of light reflected from it. Vanishing Point: An imaginary point used in linear perspective as the convergence of all lines that recede into space. Usually located at eye level. Di Peel, another Australian, spreads the paint on the canvas and dips her ample bosom into it. She then imprints her painted breasts onto a waiting canvas to create her art. She sells her paintings on her own website listed on the links. Bednarz, L.F., & Nikkel, B. (1992).

Two collectors who are cheerleaders for the Beijing art scene are Yang Bin, an automobile-franchise mogul, and Zhang Rui, a telecommunications executive who is also the backer of Beijing Art Now Gallery, which took part in Art Basel in June, one of the first Beijing galleries to appear at the fair. These two do more than collect art. They have hosted dinners for potential collectors, organized tours to Art Basel Miami Beach, and brought friends with them to sales in London and New York. Zhang Rui, who owns more than 500 works, has lent art to international exhibitions, most notably the installation Tomorrow, which features four “dead Beatles” mannequins floating facedown, created by artists Sun Yuan and Peng Yu for the 2006 Liverpool Biennial, which rejected it.

Listening to music might provide a sort of ‘exercise’ for hearing. Music might somehow teach people to be more perceptive. If you plan to use your poster paints in a group setting, there is really no better way to use your Reeves poster paints to do some string painting. Dip lengths of string into poster paint and spread them on paper or cardboard with hands to create stunning patterns and impressions. In addition, fold some A4 paper with painted string in the middle and then pull the strings through. Unfold the paper to reveal a stunning pick n mix of colours in a brilliant abstract creation.
