What do you do after setting up your own website and posting those images for the world to discover your talent?  While waiting for that enlightened day, figure out the true art of the web - the art of communication.  Then strike up a dialogue with the only person who'll ever really understand what you do - another artist.

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.
I am doing rather different stuff now. As soon as i get a free moment, I will be glad to post some studiolog images.
I miss you all, guys...
(If Hillel is listening, I humbly apologise for my delayed answer. I will soon get back to you, my dear.).. [Goto..]

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'.
So where does it hang now?

Nice work, I see a certain intimacy. I wonder how it looks from the side... [Goto..]

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.

When I work in clay I usually have a vague idea of what I'd like to explore, a feeling for how the surfaces might move and an urge to do it, to start. These things create a sort of creative mood which takes my awareness into my hands. The hands do the thinking through sensing, touch, doing, pressing, etc. I follow the lines and surfaces with my eyes too, but I find my hands do most of the work.

When I work in this way, I consciously hold back ideas, because experience has shown that the mind is not as connected to the thing I do with my hands as the hands are. This is also based on identifying the elements as they appear in the work and keeping a certain coherence by developing the existing elements without introducing random things into it, like the mind would like to do many a time. .. [Goto..]

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..]

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.
At any rate, by simply looking at the rotated image I believe that it's possible to see it in it's more technical sense of composition balance, tone, colour and light, and this might point out areas where further intervention is required. Sometimes the work takes off from there and  [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.
The craft of the work is what makes it great . Each dialogue with the world is always personal to the artist . The viewer will come   [GOTO..]

Of course my enthusiasm for Anthroposophy is based on practical experience of Steiner's ideas and new impulses.

I studied Art and Art Therapy in the UK at a Steiner college. I also lived in a village called Forest Row, which has put many of Steiner's ideas into practice. Forest Row has quite a few initiatives, some of which are: 2 biodynamic farms, the first waldorf school in the UK called Michael Hall and Organic architecture, to name just a few...

Haha Flavius... nobody's come to this forum in the last 500 years! You risk awakening some old ghosts, like myself :o)

Yes I've heard of RS, but personally I tend to avoid any form of collective ideology, however exceptional it may be. Notwithstanding, the few followers of Steiner I've met were likeable, interesting, and smart young people. Two brilliant computer programmers I knew were Steiner advocates.

Rudolf himself probably has had many interesting things to say on Art,  [GOTO..]

The Nature and Origin of the Arts
By Rudolf Steiner, Ph.D.

Let us imagine a great snow-clad plain spread out before us and upon it here and there rivers and lakes hard frozen. The neighboring sea is mostly frozen over close to shore; further out huge floes are drifting; occasional stunted trees and bushes lift heads heavy with snow and icicles. It is evening. The sun has already set, leaving behind the golden splendor of its  [GOTO..]

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

The easiest way to find more art books is to use the Search button on the site
