Instead, what is illustrated ...

Barbara Kruger juxtaposes mass media photographs with biting slogans. Her art both questions and condemns mass media’s ways of control self-identity, desire, and public opinion. In their trademark black letters against red background, her slogans are instantly recognizable. Much of her often razor-sharp text questions the viewer about feminism, classicism, consumerism, and individual autonomy and ...

How Is A Bronze Sculpture Made?
2008-04-23 23:02:00
I’m sure I can safely assume you’re not wondering how one carves or molds a sculpture. Although the carving and modeling methods require great skill, the techniques used are fairly simple- you basically use tools and your bare hands to “add” or “subtract” material until you get your desired product. Once you have carved away from a stone or other hard surface, you can sand it and polish it. If you were carving from clay the last step would be to fire it in a kiln or heat it in an oven. But how are bronze and other cast sculptures made? It’s not like there’s a chunk of metal and the sculptor chisels away at it. Casting is a little more complicated than the other two types of sculpture. It takes a team of several people, a foundry, and a 10 step process that has been around since 3000 B.C. When completed, you will have a work of art that will be around for that same amount of time into the future. In a nutshell founders reproduce in bron...

Vincent Van Gogh - A Depth of Passion Transformed - II
2008-04-04 07:46:00
By John Keaton Continuation of part I of his article: Arles : A New Hope Turns Tragic Arriving in Arles on February 20, 1888, Vincent had most certainly hoped that the light of provence would inspire his work and raise his artistic abilities to a new, creative plateau. By this point, the plein-air painting he had explored along with the influence of impressionism and the japonaisse elements he utilized were fused and became, certainly without his own realization, the style that would become distinctly “Vincent “ The Sower, painted in June of 1888, displays a return to one of Van Gogh ’s favorite motifs, and his lifelong fascination with the work of Millet. At one point, Vincent painted seven copies of the Sower in one week. Here in Arles, the Sower takes on a majestic quality with the brilliant sun blazing across the fields with a divine intensity. It is a well know fact that Vincent could not afford to hire models for his paintings and very often painted himself. No fewer than...

Vincent Van Gogh - A Depth of Passion Transformed - I
2008-04-02 07:45:00
By John Keaton “And my aim in my life is to make pictures and drawings, as many and as well as I can; then, at the end of my life, I hope to pass away, looking back with love and tender regret, and thinking, ‘Oh, the pictures I might have made!’” -Vincent Van Gogh , Letter 338, 9 November 1883 In the annals of art history, there is no comparison to the enduringly tragic and passionate life of Vincent Van Gogh. His works have been embraced and are treasured by a world which once scarcely understood or accepted this tragic and tortured genius. The beauty of his remarkably prolific career lies in the intensity and conviction of heart, which he placed in his images. His works remain etched and embossed within our subconscious and still linger in our minds long after this tormented soul’s dramatic departure from this life. Born March 30, 1853, Vincent Wilhelm Van Gogh’s young life was overshadowed by the death of a brother exactly one year prior to Vincent...

Art Collecting As I have ‘no name’ for this carnival yet, I certainly have ‘no words’ for Kinkade. Unlike Margaret here, who makes an indisputable stance to what is art and what is kitsch.

History of Mosaics

Being one of the most beautiful and oldest forms of art in the history of man, one couldn't help but wonder about how such art has evolved and survived through all these centuries. This type of ornamental arts where small tiles of stones and marbles are used to develop patterns and pictures appeared randomly in totally different cultures and locations. That is why; mosaics can't be rooted to a particular people or culture.
