Modern Art

a: Modern art ~
b: Roy Lichtenstein's Bull Profile Series

What: Generally , Art over the last 100 years or so has been characterized by a transition from representational to NON-representational form. What does this mean? The series of prints from Roy Lichtenstein's "Bull Series" has 6 pieces. The first being a Bull and then the next prints showing the Bull being abstracted into basic geometric elements of line and circle and also basic color elements of yellow, blue and red. This series not only demonstrates how this artist can imagine, but encapsulates what many artists believe art is as such.

Painting Is Like Composing A Jazz Song

a: Painting for me ~
b: composing a jazz song

What: "My work is for the creative intellect. Chance, spontaneity, lyrical and rebellious are qualities in the work. Painting for me is like composing a jazz song... direct, romantic, unconventional and individualistic. Non-idiomatic improvisation and rhythmic motion of the unconscious are how I attack the canvas. The process of making art for me is emotionally charging and spiritual."

Painting Is Like Boxing

a: Painting ~
b: Boxing

What: "Couldn't get the legs to behave, she was getting tired and her right knee started to droop. The sun came in lower and lower through the west-facing window changing all the colors every 20 minutes. I felt I had met my match. Then time was up. I look at it now and maybe it wasn't such a smack down after all. Judges will decide."

Art And Money Go Hand In Hand......

a: Modern art ~
b: a stock market bubble

What: "When i was making serigraphs i got an uncanny feeling that i was printing money. And my show was an IPO (Initial print offering) There are huge parallels between art and money. Money is resource based or should be and art is a resource or may be. However contemporary hyped up modern art is like a stock market bubble...Prints are like small denomination notes...We have to survive while we train in the classical arts...:)"

The Mona Lisa Is Like A Rockstar

a: The mona lisa ~
b: a rockstar

What: "Anyway, as my dad said, the Mona Lisa is like a rockstar: it is so famous and practically burnt into the back of every ones mind that it is somewhat anti-climactic." This is a travelogue about a trip to Louvre and an analysis of the trip to the museum and the walk to actually look at this painting.
