"..TO EMOTIONALY SURVIVE."
Patience by Maria Xagorari
Thank you JP. Last time I checked it was hanging in a home in Athens. I hope they still enjoy it. They had also bought a painting I considered rather difficult. "The Furries or The Step". I hope they still enjoy that one too.
Dance for Life by Fadwa O
We need all the more in times like this paintings like this - the colourful exuberant escape of the joy of dancing. What's interesting about this work though is the seeming tint of sadness, loneliness and doubt that makes the title all the more beguiling. The two main figures are not in eye contact, both appear to be vaguely masked, with the face of the apparent male figure on the left deeply shadowed in almost a sinister way. She is green both in dress and skin and appears anything but happy, despite the sumptuous reds of the fan or flowers she cradles. In contrast to the sensuous riot of colour overall, the picture's effect, in my view, is one more of desperation than desire, of the surrender to less benign forces than of the defiance of wild abandon... [Goto..]
Patience by Maria Xagorari
Lovely painting Maria... I'm so stupid not to have stated this before - I really don't know why I hadn't complimented you on it at the time, so please do excuse my late 10-year-and-more intervention. As you say, this view exclusively of the hands does seem to communicate so much of the mood of the person. I hadn't noticed either that it's such a big one - one metre square. The intimacy of the subject seems to beg for a small dimension, so it much be quite a surprising piece to see in real life. The fact that you chose to work in monochrome also, in my opinion, adds to the effect of this particular 'gaze'.
From Sunrise to Sunset by Flavius Pisapia
I find it useful to have different spaces for different things. So far I have a space for clay work and another studio for sculpture. My art process at the moment is to work first in clay and then make the sculpture from the clay models in either wood or stone.
I reckon I should post the latest ramblings with this... just for the record. Nothing much to say... just more of the same. It's another very erratic piece. There's still much to do before it can achieve some sort of unified statement. However I'll be able to dedicate some time to it now, and hopefully will be able to come up with some sort of solution in the (near) future. [GoTo..]
I give up, time to rotate. [GoTo..]
pre and post scraping post scraping followed by an attempt failed; consequence: rotation [GoTo..]
Jp : Now, don’t disappoint us, we all count on you, this must be the “piece” (a little anxiety for you), let it spread joy on us all or tragedy on us all ! [GoTo..]
Time to rotate... haha I know that well. I suppose it's an attempt to find a new way of looking at a piece that's already become too familiar, or a way to a lead that will get you out of that seeming impasse.
I'm glad you are still around! I find the story behind this intriguing. Would it be too much trouble to describe the disaster and the resultant mess? [GoTo..]
I don't think an artists should be removed from the site .I think the artist should have images that they remove from their page as the add more . They should be showing that they have a greater understanding of their own work by removing images. They should demonstrate that they have moved beyond some of their imagers , as they grow in their art process.
Of course my enthusiasm for Anthroposophy is based on practical experience of Steiner's ideas and new impulses.
Haha Flavius... nobody's come to this forum in the last 500 years! You risk awakening some old ghosts, like myself :o)
Has anyone here heard of Rudolf Steiner? He gave many new impulses in many areas. One of these areas is Art. He gave many lectures on art, he was a sculptor and painter too, among million other things. Here is a link where you can find many free books and lectures on art and other subjects: http://wn.rsarchive.org/Lectures/GA276/English/AP1964/ArtMis_index.html
