Speaking On Art #1
|1st Edition||Aug. 2013|
Welcome to the very first edition of Speaking of Art. Thank you to all who contributed. In this edition:
The Mobius Strip creatively personifies chat abbreviations (I enjoy her writing style). Art in Limbo gives a teaser for MOMA’s current exhibit of Bill Brandt photography. James Thatcher offers three–insight on the influence of Andy Warhol, “realization” of Barnett Newman’s Broken Obelisk (I would enjoy an even more complete explanation of this), and, his method of utilizing stencils in his work. Finally, Pa Ul shares his art and very personal insight on lost love.
Entries are listed alphabetically by category.
The Mobius Strip presents Messenging Superheroes ; “Together, these masked abbreviations fight the insidious forces of clingy chatters, stiff fingers, and even the omnipresent ever-present mastermind: Boredom.”
Art in Limbo presents A Modernist Trajectory, Bill Brandt: Shadow and Light ; “From gritty photographs of coal miners to stunningly abstract nudes, Bill Brandt’s photographs are the subject of the current photography exhibition…”
James Thatcher presents Concerning Andy Warhol ; “Portraits of Campbell soup cans (or was that Still Life?) were the uncomfortable birth of something different; made more so by its proximity to the triumph of Abstract Expressionism.”
James Thatcher presents Discovering the Broken Obelisk ; “(it) was considered very controversial, seen as a reference to the Washington Monument and the social discord of the era.”
Pa Ul presents Love, Pain & In Between ; “As you go through this, you start to create something “new.” A new world…a new environment…new friends…everything…”
James Thatcher presents Making It ; “I’ve worked with stencils in one form or another since my third year at the Corcoran College of Art and Design…stencils and spray paint were the go-to materials for these pieces…”
The next Edition of Speaking Of Art is September 1, 2013. The submission deadline is August 20th.
