I seek out look for new shapes and images within my themes using different materials, but my favorite is glass for its plasticity and abi... [more]

A majority of science students aim to become a doctor or an engineer, but only a few reach the determined targets. Know the reason? It is the differences of mental capability and the tutelage. Not many are privileged enough to receive the proper guidance, as a result of which, they fail to cope with the escalating pressure and secure poor results. Even the competent and deserving students couldn’t score better due to the absence of systematic assistance. The school life can be a... [more]

Why I Write.  
by
5/21/15 Posted 5/21/15

In her essay Why I Write, Joan Didion argued that writing was “an aggressive, even hostile act.” Writing is as an argument, she said, a way to elegantly impose one’s opinion upon another. “There’s no getting around the fact that setting words on paper is the tactic of a secret bully, an invasion, an imposition.” With all due respects to Ms. Didion, I find the contrary to be true. I make peace with my ideas when I write- with my fears, my anxieties, and my imagination... [more]

Yuan Chu Chen 艺术版权

艺术版权 艺术版权是近年来越来越多遭到争议的话题。 杰夫·昆斯在美国惠特尼艺术博物馆的首个最全面的艺术作品展肯定是艺术圈值得期待的大展,关于此次展览展方都做出了史无前例的尝试 ——以单个艺术家作品展满近整个场地的首次尝试。就在等待这个大展开幕的前期,一个关于昆斯所创作的《大力水手》雕塑作品“剽窃”的消息也在沸沸扬扬的讨 论着。2014年5月14日,在纽约苏富比当代艺术拍卖会晚上,昆斯创作的大型钢铁雕塑作品《大力水手》(POPEYE)以1816.5万美元的高价被一 位名为史蒂夫·韦恩(Steve Wynn)的富豪买走。高额的数字经常是人们关注的焦点,显然昆斯这件作品天文的数字也毫无疑问成为了大众关注的焦点。但是,早在2002年的时候,黑马 (Dark Horse)的漫画公司就推出过《大力水手》的小型雕塑,而昆斯的雕塑“水手”和黑马的“水手”外貌及其相似,只是尺寸更大些,体型更硬朗了些。同时昆斯 在2008年创作的一幅名为《大力水手三人行》(Triple Popeye)中也发现了“剽窃&rdq...

Flowers of innocence

FLOWERS OF INNOCENCE Why is it that so important, it is at the same time so trivial? Why to paint flowers, then we condemn ourselves to be called tandeto artists, decorative and superficial "the transformers' reality? Why do not we have another, as a universal symbol of beauty? Why, then, when we look at growing flowers in macro-scale, eg. The whole top of tulips and gardenia, feel the emotion and joy? Why, then, when we grow flowers in a pot, on a piece of cotton wool, experiencing betrayal, a... [more]

Yuan Chu Chen 美学的梦幻 陈源初 美学的对象就是感性认识的完善这就是美。与此相反的就是感性认识得不完善,这就是丑。美之教导怎样以美的方式去思维,是作为研究低级认识方式的科学,即作为低级认识的美学任务。’这 就是说,作为低级认识的美学,它的任务就是研究感性认识的完善,也就是美学。美学是研究美的同时把艺术作为研究美的主要内容,美学是以美的方式去思维艺 术,是美的艺术的理论。美学是离不开艺术的,而艺术则是为研究美学所服务的。美学对象就是直觉与表现,直觉与艺术,艺术与哲学,美学中的历史主义与理智主义,史学与逻辑学中的类似错误,认识的活动与实践的活动,认识的活动与实践的活动的类比,其它心灵的形式的存在,论表现不可分为各种形态或程度,修词学,各种审美的感觉以及美与丑的分别,美的快感主义,同情说的美学和一些假充审美的概念,自然与艺术中的“物理的美”,物理学与美学的混淆所生的错误,外射的活动。各种艺术的技巧与理论,鉴赏力与艺术的再造,文学与艺术的历史,语言学与美学的统一。研究美,就是研究感性认识的完善。 在中国早在两千多年前的先秦时期。就在诸子百家的典籍和史书中有了审美活动的记载。最早记载了有关美的是《国语》中的《楚语上》&l...
