I'm a big fan of www.youtube.com and came across this gem:

This is genuine art though I must caution the reader that youtube does often contain posts that are of a questionable nature. So, please enjoy the featured post but use your discretion as to others.

Thank you, thanatopsy, for starting us off. I'd been wondering who would be the first to begin?  We seem to have lost many of our former associates who commented particularly on art as they saw it; so, I've been very curious, if this forum would ever get off the ground along with several others missing content thus far (which really says something about us).

What is marvelous about the selection that you posted was the editing for the morphing but, to do that, the editor had to have a very wide knowledge of art history.    I know that I didn't know probably over a dozen of the portraits or subjects.  The editing technique technically lent a provocative quality of femininity but at the same time the very inconstancy of any supposedly understood emotion on the part of the viewer. Says a lot about what's real in human attraction and what we mistake from appearances.

Thanks madupont.

Indeed, that video is a great work of contemporary art. And it reveals how Western style beauty remains a constant over the centuries that transpire. Beauty is such a wonderful thing.  I remain mindful of the Old Testament story of Job - when he repented of his supposed sins, he was granted numerous rewards.  And the listing shows that the best was saved for last as the greatest gift he got was being rewarded with the most beautiful daughters in the land.

Beauty as revealed in those portraits is a divine gift - a manifestation of the divine in human form. It is life enhancing and affirming. And it is eternal.



Beauty is not in the face
beauty is a light in the heart.

--- Khalil Gibran (1883 - 1931)


I hope that posters will use this portion of the forum to post links that reveal beauty in any and every form imaginable.

Hard to resist not posting on the diamond encrusted skull by Damien Hirst:

http://edition.cnn.com/2007/SHOWBIZ/06/01/skull.art.reut/index.html

You have to give the guy credit for making news, but assuming someone pays out $98 million for this "relic," it would hardly put him in the same league with Picasso or Rembradt, even in terms of buying power.  After all, $30 million was invested in making this "piece of art" to begin with, making it no better (just more expensive) than the jewel-encrusted bras Victoria's Secret offers each Christmas for around $10 million.

Does this look like Delacroix to you?

http://www.navigo.com/wm/paint/auth/delacroix/barque-dante.jpg

Anyway, somebody posting noticed that this painting is reputed to be the inspiration for the Annie Leibovitz photo on the dvd cover for the 5th season of The Sopranos. That turned out to be the case and I could have posted this in television but I'm still figuring out this "Delacroix", who appears to have fallen between Michaelangelo and David.

Yes, chauncey.g

Those of us who have lived in New Jersey at one time or another can say with certainty, New Jerseyeans are talented. In one way or another. For this one we were given all the clues.   As a matter of fact, this particular style takes as much effort and persistence to get it down as any other style of painting.

I had a friend who accomplished this because she was near sighted, and I immediately saw where she was coming from because I am near sighted too. Never have I developed a talent for Impressionist painting to the degree that she had simply because she couldn't figure out what things were when she walked into the kitchen in the morning and,whoa,had to back up to see what the strange objects in there really were. That's about the size of it.

Don't exactly care much for the musician as a person. His music is all right; but, I had an unexpected encounter with him at Small's Paradise one night after hours that was a source of amusement to the musicians that I had come with for the breakfast hour. He had been getting away with that ruse for years.  The only musician that I really disliked from then on without a doubt.

yES, as a matter of fact. In several languages used just as ineptly as the original. That's what comes of letting your parents know that you know how  to play the piano before you start kindergarten. Daily practice for 15 years on average will just about do it: wipe out your syntactical abilities or barely have them develop, because you are composing music in your head. Great start in life but is it worth it?

Did anyone see the PBS on David, in the Power of Art Series?   David happened to be the first thing that I posted in here(because somebody had brought it up, in reference to the Sopranos, as the inspiration for one of their later dvd covers; and I was dumb-founded by the awkwardness of the paint texture or rather the sloppiness, although the classic Roman forms were there which was what the Academy was all about for French painters.  This just wasn't the David that I knew.

Simon Schama doesn't like him much, for the qualities that I admire in David; and makes some slur to end the show, which was on:The Death of Marat, about "continuing to paint-on perfecting the high gloss." It is exactly the high-gloss that I admire; and rather think that David should be admired for mastering the technique which became important to European art for at least most of the next century. Schama doesn't "note" the modeling of the figure underneath the high-gloss,which has everything to do with how light is conveyed and placed with precision which indicates there is more than the trompe l'oeil of the wood grain on the bottom of the box that Marat uses for a desk  while soaking in his bath. But Schama equates the high-gloss with David's having been the painter of the Revolution and begins to  extrapolate on the political correctness of the art rather than the art.

It is safe to say that when "Simon says" or Schama goes on television in this day and age that he not advocate: Terror. But instead uses every example he can think of to politically condemn the French Revolution that David so masterfully records. I dare say, that for those who did not read French, or follow up by investigating what Thomas Carlyle thought, it was David's paintings that showed them what the Revolution had been.

But, Schama has the last word because of his huge, foot-noted compendium, Citizens, A Chronicle of the French Revolution; then ,reveals by his analysis in this--Death of Marat--something which was not as apparent in his glorious review of Amsterdam and the sex life of Rembrandt,  that he values political correctness over technique,craft, skill. His criteria in art is political, that it lies, in other words it is propaganda.

One, particularly got that feeling when he resents that David, sitting in the Bastille, painted his self-portrait, as a memoriam and a celebration to be remembered by, representing himself as a young man in the glory of romantic youth. Luckily, the painter David was rescued by a patron and, following the Empire, when exiled, upon the return of Royalty to privilege and power, "kept on perfecting that high-gloss", for the Royalists would not allow his widow to bring his body back from Brussels for burial in France, a favor not allowed supporters of Revolution who advocated the death of Monarchy. (I have not investigated to find out whether he ever did arrive at Pere Lachaise.)

But for the answer to the mysteries of why a tv lecturer as an expert on art rather than an historian carps on as the crotchety little person we see today, one has only to look at the book jacket of, Citizens, and compare the photograph of what he once was to the image on the screen.

Correction.  It was Delacroix that I first mentioned because he wasn't enough like David!

For less traditional Japanese art, there's this exhibit that lets one trace the manga phenom back, from Tezuka back to Yoshitoshi (elsewhere in the museum back to Hiroshige & Hokusai & before)

http://www.asianart.org/

The Tezuka exhibit had a manga blast day with exhibits, printmaking, huge sheets for drawing your own characters, caricaturists that would draw one as a manga character, and quite a few participants in costume (something called cosplay -- for costume play, perhaps similar to what my older daughter enjoyed during the days of midnight showings of Rocky Horror Picture Show at Don Pancho's Art Theater in ABQ NM).  Younger daughter took second prize in her Pokky (Japanese snack--shortbread sticks with various flavored coatings) box costume from last Hallowe'en. 

Tezuka's early work surprised me in the way it reflected WWII era issues, including post-Hiroshima ones, and I was also surprised at the wide range of subject matter and the level of artistry in what were, basically, newspaper cartoons and later animated tv shows. 

The day at the museum was a revelation of a whole part of my kid's culture and mindset of which I had but an inkling (and through which she was kind and patient enough to guide me--when she wasn't with her fellow cosplayer friend participating in rituals I still know not of).

The Asian Art Museum of San Francisco

Yoshitoshi's Strange Tales:
Woodblock Prints from Edo to Meiji
Through September 2 

This is the period that has always fascinated me, as you can see by the illustration, with the extreme length of hair tied very low so that it moves together if at all -- and the short wide eyebrows painted green, and the smaller flower-bud mouth obviously painted to be small.  Of course, when I was there (in S.F., there were no Japanese there at the time what so ever. They gradually came back from relocation. The women in my sister-in-law's family all succumbed to cancer save one sister surviving and my sister-in-law presently receiving radiation therapy. Personally, I think it had something to do with the shock of being transported to detention centers where they lived under surprisingly primitive conditions compared to the homes that they had in S.F.).
 
A bit to the south by all means, on my side of the family, my great niece's husband does anime for one of the studios in L.A. but I forget which and he isn't even Japanese but Roumanian and they met at Berkeley. I look forward to getting to know them better(as adults) when I relocate(very slowly).   

Who mentioned Albuquerque? You or lhoffman?  The great-niece's mother, my sister, thinks she might relocate there because it is arty enough to suit; and occasionally drags her two daughters off to play in small desert locales around there during school breaks for the younger one at Brown.

(BTW back: I'm overcoming my usual OCD tendencies this time around and skipping some of the speeches, resolutions, etc.  Now that I'm no longer familiar with the various factions (or feel obliged to be), I am enjoying just riding the revolutionary wave, and Reed's evocative language can make a reader see a character or feel a moment in quite a short sentence or two.  It did strike me how very many newspapers were put out as so many groups vied for power--almost like having lots of websites available but having trouble knowing which are trustworthy, perhaps?)

"Last night in New York. After a beautiful day, sunny and bright, an unseasonably warm (but who’s complaining?) evening. I started out at the 67th Street Armory on Park Avenue where they were holding the Opening night Preview Party of the International Art + Design Fair 2007 to benefit The Bard Graduate Center for Studies in the Decorative Arts, Design and Culture.

We’ve covered so many of these fairs over the years that it amazes me that each remains new and fresh.  We arrived shortly after 6 when guests were just about to arrive so the aisles were fairly empty and ideal for looking. This Art + Design Fair is full of beautiful things – furniture, paintings,  rugs and tapestries, silvers and bronzes, metal work, crystal and glassware. Art Deco, Art Nouveau.

We were there to observe and to photograph but I kept thinking how nice it would be to return on Saturday or Sunday or Monday just for a leisurely look at the beauty man can create. At the Jason Jacques booth which features Art Nouveau and Japonist Ceramic Masterworks, we were admiring an Art Nouveau fireplace made by Hector Guimard.

I asked Mr. Jacques about Art Nouveau and the artist. It was in vogue for about five, maybe ten years, in the late 1890s through 1905. Guimard is the man who did the metal work décor for the Metro in Paris. Jacques pointed out that  Guimard continued to create beautiful pieces up until 1935 athough they were no longer selling. They’re selling now, however, eight decades after his passing, and for prices he couldn’t have dreamed of. Beautiful.

The fair is open through next Wednesday, October 10."  DPC at NYSD

"I left the Armory and went over to Sotheby’s where they were holding a kick-off party for potential committee members for a Spring 2008 luncheon that will benefit NOFA-NY (Northeast Organic Farming Association), a not-for-profit advocacy and education organization of farmers, gardeners and consumers. 

NOFA is the oldest and largest organization in the state of New York devoted to organic farming, gardening and the connection between farmers and consumers,  encouraging locallyandregionally grownfoods. 

I emphasized the latter because although “organic” has become a hip buzzword in our culture, it is also overused to the point of exaggeration and outright falsehood, and we’ve come to take it for granted. The NOFA mission, however, is about creating a sustainable and affordable regional food system that is truly organic. They are committed to bringing information on food choices to the general public to ensure a healthy (and reliable)  future for all of us. Hip, sleek and cool may define a lot of the contemporary interest in organic and regionally grown foods but the future has something else in store for us: dire necessity. Hard for a lot of us to believe in the age of aeronautics and rocket science. But believe it because it’s nigh unto upon us. "  Columbia NYSD

Belltown's Mosler Lofts

On Architecture

Last month, an out-of-town jury spent a whirlwind weekend reviewing new Seattle buildings for the local American Institute of Architects' annual honor awards. They delivered some sobering judgments:

For a city with such strengths -- education, culture, natural environment, wealth -- the jury hoped to see more evidence of leadership and risk, and less comfort with an already well-digested regional design language. Great architecture occurs when a great designer creates new opportunity

Well, first, consider the source: one of the three jurors was Joshua Prince-Ramus, who in concert with Rem Koolhaas co-designed our dysfunctional Central Library.

Mosler Lofts, the newest of the Belltown condo crop, points in a more engaging direction. In fact, it's the most interesting and provocative residential high-rise to appear in Seattle since World War II.

The architecture firm Mithun appears to have taken the feel of the original urban loft idea -- the gritty old warehouse transformed into high-end living quarters -- and applied it to a new building with the advantage of big windows, which are structurally impossible in most renovations. Its mood, as seen from the street, is dark, tough and industrial. But on the north side, it meets Clay Street with a three-story brick facade that could almost be a cluster of family-friendly row houses.

Urban life is all about ambiguity and complexity, and this building reflects it better than any of the slicker, more overtly luxurious towers around it.

The Heathman Hotel

Haute-Bourgeois Retrotecture?

The Heathman Hotel, which just opened in downtown Kirkland, is the year's silliest example of haute-bourgeois retrotecture.

The justification for this vaguely Italianate Victorian villa, executed by Jensen/Fey Architecture & Planning of Redmond, was to be "consistent with the city's elegant and historic buildings." But Kirkland's scattered Victoriana isn't nearly as compelling a context as its stock of late 20th-century architecture downtown and along the lakefront. That would have been worthwhile to build on.

Architectural nostalgia is essentially a developer-driven marketing ploy...

Thank you for your author’s query concerning
Charles II, Charles Xavier Vseslav, last King of
Zembla, surnamed The Beloved, born 1915,
who reigned 1936-1958.

We have in the Zembla Archives one surviving
photo of King Charles addressing the masses
on the death of his dearly beloved mother,
Queen Blenda, on May Day 1936.

We’re sending you a copy of this rare color
photo in the hope that it will help with your
Zembla research into Zembla poetry.

We’re also sending you a copy of a poem
written and dedicated to his close friend
and companion, Oleg, Duke of Rahl (1916-
1931) who tragically died in a toboggan
accident—along with a photo of Oleg’s
condo on Thurgus the Turgid Boulevard
here in our beloved capitol of Onhava,
Zembla.

Sincerely yours,
Herr Doktor Professor Gordon Krummholz
Zembla Department of Chess and Poetry

Actor and comedian Barrie Humphries, who has painted seriously since his teens, is launching an online exhibition that pits his art against that of his alter-ego Dame Edna Everage. Humphries describes Dame Edna's 'self-portrait' as "very flattering", saying she thinks of herself as a "female Rolf Harris". (Observer)

Dzimas,

This is really my favourite  kind, I used to admire it as a kid and want to live in the local examples of this style when i grew up and an apartment became available.  I was surprised to find that there are some in existence in Montreal; sometimes turned into hotels, and then I immediately notify my French friends who like to travel there for vacation occasionally, when ever I have found a new "find". 

The smaller scale versions, however, are of such 'age' that they have their interiors remodeled for guests as sparsely as possible; they are without the luxuries that we become used to in the US with franchise groups investing in updating facilities for travelers.

What do you know of the doyenne of the Bronfman family's projects in architecture. Of course, she may have passed away by now.

Britain is a nation of art lovers, according to a new survey which found that more people visited the British galleries in the world's top 30 in 2007 than any other country's. The UK came top of the Art Newspaper survey with 22.5m visitors, to nearest rival France's 16.9m. (Independent on Sunday)

This place is indicative of a subject that began to interest me in the 1970s, buying the light summer wines from this region;pronounced "Mo--selle" among the French speakers, although  this is a bilingual place, and just said,"Mo-sel" in German.

 The other day, I did find some shots put aside of better known locations from when John Malkovich drove up from France for a film shoot: Shadow of the Vampire.  They wanted dark interiors of some available castle. Luxembourg is full of faery tale castles from incredibly long ago because this was the outpost of the Roman legions on the Barbarian frontier when they conquered Gaul.

I'll see if I can dig them up again.

Decided on second thought they really were not that "valid" while laying claim to being "iconoclastic". Especially in the other claim of being true to color values, etc.  Somewhere about mid-way through the restaging, the color is garishly inappropriate for Picasso's, Boy with Pipe; then you begin to rethink whether the better of the bad poses are really ready to be considered Art?  It's more of an affectation.  We overuse it a lot in our culture.

quote:


"No American artist, Jasper Johns once said, invented more than Mr. Rauschenberg. Mr. Johns, John Cage, Merce Cunningham and Mr. Rauschenberg, without sharing exactly the same point of view, collectively defined this new era of experimentation in American culture. Apropos of Mr. Rauschenberg, Cage once said, “Beauty is now underfoot wherever we take the trouble to look.”

Those must have been the rocks he wrote names on(or was that Tuli Kupferberg?). In which case, it may have been the turtles with flashlights on their backs.   I sat through one of those intimate "happenings" of his at my local art center back in the age of POP! and Camp, so I have rather mixed feelings about Rauschenberg, may he rest in peace.
