ROMANOVA SVETLANA-ART  
by
3/31/20 Posted 3/5/09

         Hello frends! I am an artist. My roots take place in St.Petersburg, which has great architecture, culture and history that influenced me once and forever. Today, in the times of technical progress, mass production and new artificial materials I search for inspiration in the foundation of the Arts - old Russian Orthodox icons, Renaissance and folk cultures. I seek out look for new shapes and images within my themes using different materials, but my favorite is glass for its plasticit... [more]

REVISED OIL PAINTING TECHNIQUE  
by
11/22/14 Posted 11/22/14

AFTER MY LAST OIL PAINTING I DECIDED TO REVISE MY APPROACH AS FOLLOWS :- (1) CARRY OUT SKETCH OF SUBJECT HIGHLIGHTING, USING HATCHED LINES, THE 3 TONES OF DARK/ MEDIUM/ LIGHT. ALSO THE BASE COLOURS OF AREAS SHOULD BE INDICATED SUCH AS E.G RO (RED/ORANGE). THESE WILL BE CIRCLED IF WARM OR UNCIRCLED IF GRAYED DOWN. A PHOTO REFERENCE WILL BE USED TO AID STUDIO WORK IF USEFUL. (2) TRANSFER DRAWING TO PREPARED PANEL (LIGHT VARNISHED AND WHITE ACRYLIC GESSO APPLIED). THE GESSO WILL BE FURTHER US... [more]

EMANCIPATION PROCLIMATION OF THE "ART" SLAVE.

Aloha from My Enlightened Studio, After a Lifetime of Rejection in all My Social Circles & Abuse by All My Children, X-wives, Siblings and Close & Distant Relatives I Found a Safe Harbor Here in Hilo, where I can Create Imagery, How, When & Why I Choose, that is not influenced by any outside forces. It is Trully "Original" and I am a Master of Application. 60,000 years ago, a cave man using blood, pigments, animal & human feces, plant and fish material to create Cave Paintings started "ART" whic...

Fake It Till You Make It: A Few Words on Forgery   Pick-button-5bf6c1b36c3b74ec8f312c7c9f6f1ae3
by
Posted 11/18/14

Picasso’s oft quoted “Good artists borrow, great artists steal” is one of those dubious chestnuts likely repeated in the halls of art schools enough to be painted over the doors. William S Burroughs’ notion of language as a virus presupposes that nothing or little of what we say is original—everything starts out as a borrowing, a theft. Theft, forgery, fakery, authenticity, and homage underlie all art and literature, always softly shadowing their meaning and troublin... [more]

A colorful and chaotic pastel collection  
by
at Matrix Fine Art October 3rd - October 31st
Posted 11/13/14

Think of the most stunning landscape photo you have seen. Now imagine that the scene you believed was a photograph was actually a concisely accurate pastel piece, painstakingly precise in every way. This pleasant illusion is what I experienced at the “2014 Pastel Society of New Mexico Signature Membership Show.” This show is a display of shockingly beautiful and realistic renderings of various subject matter, with a topic of interest to any viewer. Overall, it’s an impressive ar... [more]

Lust, Lecherousness, and Love  
by
11/11/14 Posted 11/11/14

Peter Clothier's scurrilously witty new novel "The Pilgrim's Staff" explores lust, lecherousness, and love through the voices of two men from two disparate centuries. David Soames, a contemporary figurative painter living as an ex-pat in Los Angeles, receives a curious package in the mail from an English cousin. Wrapped in layers of tape and memory is the two hundred year-old journal of an English gentleman, who begins his tale with the words"I am no Rake!" "Rake" is a wonderfully antiquat... [more]

A (Virtual) Studio Visit in the Most Secretive Country in the World   Pick-button-5bf6c1b36c3b74ec8f312c7c9f6f1ae3
by
Posted 11/10/14

North Korea is often prefixed with the words "the most secretive country in the world." It was therefore a surprise to discover not only that the country has a rather unusual embassy in London—a suburban home in Gunnersbury quite far from the center—but also that it recently opened its doors to visitors for an art exhibition. The North Korean Embassy, London; Photo: Mark Hillary The exhibition was short-lived—lasting only three days—but after being mobbed by press on day one, its p... [more]

ISO 216  
by
10/31/14 Posted 10/31/14

Con Artist presents ISO 216, a collaboration between artists from New York and London. Named in honor of the world’s most common paper size ratio which, like so many of global standards of weights and measure, is notably rare in the US, ISO 216 celebrates the cultural parallels and unique individuality of the United Kingdom and United States. The two nations are ethnically diverse, share a common language, and are each massive exporters of art and culture, but as their slightly different pa... [more]

Art or Not?  
by
10/16/14 Posted 10/16/14

Art or Not? One of the pictures described below is a genuine art work: every Friday the ArtSlant team asks our discerning readers to indulge in a game of spot the difference. The answer will be revealed on our social media on Monday: Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr, Instagram. This week's theme is: pizza. #1 "... is a vivid visual representation that expounds the dichotomous act of consumerism: on the one hand, the form and gigantesque proportions of this highly desirable food item are playful and cartoonish, yet, they belie the terror of ab...

Hardcore War Drawings by Goya Shown in the Middle East   Pick-button-5bf6c1b36c3b74ec8f312c7c9f6f1ae3

Irena Gordon might be the most audacious curator in the Middle East—and it’s thanks to an exhibition of pro-peace artworks that are over a century old. In a daring and rare show of 70 etchings, aquatints and drypoints by the Spanish court painter Francisco Goya has opened at the Hermann Struk Museum, Israel. In the context of the modern day Middle East, Goya’s metaphors and allegories become not only relevant once again, but also subversive. Goya witnessed 19th century Spain during the Peninsular War, a... [more]

I've been to New-York, Solomon R Guggenheim Museum, on the fifth floor they had contemporary art exhibition.Firts thing thing i saw there was a painting with some kind of yellow parallelepiped on it.
