Random Art Gallery Notes in my Online Workbook

Random Art Gallery Notes in my Online Workbook

Saw Escher and Liechtenstein exhibits today.

Escher was very impressive. Some of the best draftsmanship I've seen. But it left me feeling a bit de-motivated and cold, not sure why. I guess I'll never get to that level of draftsmanship - but then, I don't want to. I don't care anymore, I've stopped beating myself up about it. I prefer James Rizzi’s childlike fun; I’m more into that style of art.

I just want to make images that look a bit different, a bit original. The best way for me to do that is with photoshop, to just keep experimenting and hoping for the best. I would rather play with light and texture than obsess about the line.

Maybe I'll never get there. I’ll just try and mix meditation and art. Just survive. Try and be happy.

I saw a Munch exhibit in the same venue a while ago. I think I was more moved by those images.

Liechtenstein motivated me, just more light and fun. Loved the size of them. Nice seeing them in the flesh - one of a kind. A feeling hard to recreate with digital online work. Hmmm ...

Anyway, enough fanboy notes.

Cheers, Surian

Art Gallery Notes / Alternate Eye Formations

Image doesn't work in Blogger because of Flickr's new embedding code:

Art Gallery Notes: I visit the Edinburgh National Gallery a lot (it’s easy to get to and free). It has my favorite Gauguin’s there (Three Tahitians and Vision of the Sermon). I tend to skip a lot of paintings and go straight to the impressionist room - I know more impressionist / post impressionist / modern history.  I guess I can engage with it more. I find older works a bit ‘samey’ (maybe that's wrong).  Apart from Caravaggio, Goya and El Greco.

I like El Greco, I think it’s more loose, I like the cloth, feels impressionist before impressionism. Instead of dappled light, its dappled cloth. Maybe I’m wrong. Plus I like that the figures look elongated (a bit like Klimt or that old MTV Aeon Flux cartoon). ... Anyway, I’m no silver tongued art historian; I’m just trying to learn. I’ll still focus on learning more modern history, but El Greco has caught my eye.

There is a Lichtenstein exhibit on. I’ll try and see it today.

*I found this video explaining the relationship between Cezanne and El Greco after writing the note. www.youtube.com/watch?v=vdkKQhx0faQ

I like watching docs by Simon Schama, Andrew Graham-Dixon, Waldemar Januszczak, Alastair Sooke, Tim Marlow etc. I find it easier to digest than the books. Worth checking out if you haven’t.

Cheers, Surian

Looking forward to the film ‘Sam Klemke’s Time Machine’, I noticed one of my old digi-illustrations is on his website.
