Baroque Art  
by
1/18/15 Posted 1/18/15

The term Baroque which encompasses art from the sixteenth to eighteenth century may have similar ideas as to the dynamic movement and religious aspect of the time has different artistic styles that can be found in the different regions the art is created. These various changes were the reflection not just of the area the art was created, but also the result of the religious practices in the area, the rulers of that area, and the peoples view of art at the time.

Philosophy of seventeenth and eighteenth century art in Europe  
by
1/18/15 Posted 1/18/15

Seventeenth and eighteenth century art in Europe underwent significant changes as a result of shifts in economy, ideas about the function of the arts and the artists, and taste in art. While the changes were significant, as we examine the different social, economic, and aesthetic roles of the arts during the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries, we find that the changes in Fine Arts and the idea of the artist as more than creating to serve a function will not be fully recognized until the nineteenth ce...

Understanding Art: A look at isms’, Movements, and concepts through time  
by
1/18/15 Posted 1/18/15

What is art? When we look at art what is it that we see? What do we look at? And how do we know if something is really art? All of these questions are as old as the word art. From time to time we find ourselves reexamining what makes art, art. Sir Roger Penrose, one of the foremost scientists of our time, when faced with a similar problem with regard to the definition of quite something else, viz. (即), consciousness (知觉), states in his The Emperor’s New Mind: “I do not think that it... [more]

Deconstructing Art Manifesto  
by
1/18/15 Posted 1/18/15

Our great visionaries have gone away, while our teachers have led us to stray. Logic, Reason, and even Surrealism have gone, what we are left with is copied, reproduction, massiveness of nothingness which we call modernism or contemporary-ism. The imagination is reduced to rules and techniques until all we have are a vast number of poseurs, attempting to be the next van Gogh, da Vinci or Picasso, by reproducing that which has already been done. Instead of moving to the future artists have been dr... [more]

THE UNREALISM  
by
1/18/15 Posted 1/18/15

Black paint can be the death of a work of art, the black hole in a painting or the third-rail as some put it. It is something that you should not touch or you can get burned, and for two current exhibits in Chelsea, Richards Phillips at Gagosian, and Aaron Nagel at Lyons Wier Gallery, it was just that, a death, or at least a disappointing distraction in the works. As usual there is the idea you get about the works while looking at them on-line, through the invite or in a magazine, and the disap... [more]

10 steps for emerging artist to follow to get into galleries.  
by
1/18/15 Posted 1/18/15

There are a couple of ways to go about it, but it all depends on the strength of your work.1.you could cold call galleries (I don’t recommend this). You send your portfolio to galleries hoping someone likes your work. The problem is many galleries get hundreds if not thousands of these a year. They rarely look at them and if they do it is rarely the curator unless one of the assistants like what they see.2. Go to artist friends openings and hope that they will introduce you to the gallery... [more]

A critical view of the life and work of 艾未未 (Ai WeiWei)  
by
1/18/15 Posted 1/18/15

When talking about the work of artists such as 艾未未 (Ai WeiWei) it is not enough to talk about the work we can see in photos, galleries, museums and magazines. Ai is also an activist artist, one that uses action and non-traditional forms of art to express his ideas, this is also considered his art. While there are very little formal art critic articles of this kind of work we can find political and social writings and even artistic articles that talk about Ai’s work as an activist. This pa...

以貌取人的社会  
by
1/18/15 Posted 1/18/15

我们处在一个以貌取人的社会 我们的文化对美丽的相貌赞许不已。但我们的白日梦,如同我们的脸孔一样,并不完全由我们自己做主。 画板油画《愉悦相伴》(Merry Company),1562年,作者:让•马特西斯(Jan Matsys), 现存于法国瑟堡市托马斯•亨利艺术博物馆。图自《布里奇曼艺术》/盖蒂社   压迫的性质和形式不一而足,但几乎所有的起因都是不公正:人们所接受的待遇与他们应得的待遇有所不同。当然,我们很难说出一个人应得的待遇到底是什么,但是在当今世界,我们常常认为,功过赏罚在某种程度上与人们所能控制的事物有关。例如,你的肤色并不由你做主,所以你因此而受到恶劣待遇,从本质上来说是一种压迫。我们说的这种待遇往往并不那么显而易见:一个排斥同性恋的社会可能比一个关押同性恋者的社会的压迫性要低,尽管如此,它还是让人有压迫感的。性取向和种族是相当明显的压迫重灾区,阶级和性别亦如此。但是,如果压迫就是没有给人以应得的,那么将会有另一种压迫进入我们的视线,这就是丑陋之人所受到的压迫。   我们不能选择我们的长相特征,就像我们不能选择自己的肤色,但是人们一直都以貌取人。正如心理学家克米拉•沙哈尼•丹宁(Comila Shahani-Denning)于2003年在《霍夫斯特拉视野》(Hofstra Horizons)期刊上关于该问题总结并发表的研究报告所说:“(人们关于)长相的偏见出现在各个领域,比如老师看脸给分、选民看脸投票、陪审团在模棱两可的案件中看脸来做出裁决……长相也会影响面试者对于应聘者的评判。”蹒跚学步的幼童爱盯着漂亮的成年人看,成年人也喜欢凝视可爱的孩子,我们无情地给予长得养眼的人以优待。长得丑的就糟了。  ...
