#Tuesday and #TooMuchToDo in the #ArtStudio

#90 “You can condense, but you cannot simplify.” —Ann Lauterbach, personal conversation: The world is infinitely complex, and any attempt to simplify, which means the elimination of contradictory elements, will fail to capture that complexity. One can, however, attempt to compress or condense those elements into a more abbreviated or altered form. That is the role of metaphor. Kit White 101 Things to Learn in Art School

#WelcomeBack to the #ArtStudio

Francis Bacon: http://blog.francis-bacon.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/10/Self-Portrait-1971-thb-social-size.jpg

#78 Self-portraiture has a long and storied history. It is something that most artists undertake in their training. It can yield great revelations of character and technique as in Rembrandt, van Gogh, and Bacon. It will succeed or fail based on its interest as an image. Try to judge it as an image, not as a mirror. Kit White 101 Things to Learn in Art School

Kahinde Wiley – Color Scheme? Painting? Pattern? https://hoenartinsight.files.wordpress.com/2014/02/kehindewiley_randersonromualdocordeiro_theworldstage_brazil_2008.jpg

What color schemes are you struggling with as you develop your understanding? What is challenging about it?

 

BTW…

frank,
the results r great !! i am actually very impressed that you went beyond –
to make a drawings of the crumble pieces. it is a perfect move –
to show kids the possibilities and open the wide range of vision.
just perfect move!) and next one – as you said seems perfect too –
to the large scale paintings from it. plus it does bring the idea of pop –
using common objects reminding of course of warhol as well as rosenquist paintings
v
ps. next time in WI – coffee would be great)
Check out the photos from your Sketchbook last week! HERE

Oil Painting – What are you interested in when it comes to the contemporary world of Art? http://i01.i.aliimg.com/wsphoto/v0/32324421311_1/HOT-PRINT-OIL-PAINTING-40-30-THE-EYE-WITH-DROP-OF-WATER-WALL-ART-HOME-DECORAGIFT.jpg

What ideas do you see coming out from others works as you took the 4 minutes to walk around today and see what others are doing? How can you see working with OTHERS in a COMMUNITY as being beneficial to the development of your art?

Using CONTEMPORARY ARTISTS as your impetus… you will need to RESEARCH a GALLERY ARTIST that is CONTEMPORARY and base your pose on their composition. This might be homework, but it’ll be worth it! http://artviaanderson.weebly.com/theory-and-practice/self-portraits-then-and-now
