© Roberto Alborghetti-Mitrani Yarden The printing fabrics you see in this post don’t come or proceed from drawings, paintings or digitally made works. They come from realistic and abstract photos of torn and decomposed publicity posters, natural cracks and scratches, urban and industrial matters… They are part of a special series created and developed by me, Roberto Alborghetti (I’ve collected so far more than 90.000 pictures for my “Lacer/actions” proje...

When I Am Working I am Exploring  
by
3/30/16 Posted 3/30/16

Dorothy L Merk When I am working, I am not worrying about what other people think and feel, I am exploring my most mundane feelings. The purpose of my work is to take the ordinary and transform it into a universal feeling or expression. My work is applicable to all people because it transcends our basic existence and expresses a real humanness and spirituality. The result is the truth and the beauty of truth that is universal.

I Love  
by
3/30/16 Posted 3/30/16

Dorothy L Merk I love the beauty of the exquisite line, elegant composition, the artist touch and the rapture of the stroke of the pen or brush. It is the love that inspires me to become excited by a strong emotion and to try to move through it to this place of the universal understanding and freedom I bring to the viewer. [more]

Evocations of Beauty in the Work of Manuella Muerner Marioni  
by
3/28/16 Posted 3/28/16

Muerner Marioni, throughout her career, which included studies with Nicki de Saint Phalle, seems to have been in a single-minded pursuit of individuation. This goal has been attained as a direct consequence of her deriving strength form reducing and concentrating attention on the most pressing and urgent needs; to compress and distill obsessions and repression and fill these with a particular intensity while doing so. by John Austin, art critic Hidden Women by Manuella Muerner Mar...

Sightseeing 2016 oil on raw canvas 36 x 36 inches Buyers are often interested in buying an artist's latest work but they can be a lot more pricey. I frequently I sell older paintings that I did several years ago. The site Chairish.com has been particularly helpful in this regard. It is a sort of do-it-yourself interior design sort of site. Not being dedicated to fine art, I use it to sell only my old ones - at reasonable, affordable prices. I feel it’s a good deal for everyone: I... [more]

“Do women have to be naked to get into the Met. Museum?” The Guerrilla Girls have famously been asking the same question since 1989, when the feminist group first pointed out that “Less than 5% of the modern art section [at the museum] are women.” That was in New York, but does the same hold true for the representation and visibility of modern women artists in non-western regions? While the West is quick to slap a “suppressed” sticker on Middle Eastern women... [more]

Soon after "Time" was created, ArtonFashion transformed it into a wearable work of art. It is truly a statement peice! What I find most amazing about this work of art, The Ambassador wore it in support of an American artist trying to make a difference. My ink and digital drawing are political statement... [more]
