http://www.inuitfinearts.com/vincent/sculptures/V12697.html Beautiful inuit soapstone sculpture. In Ottawa’s Museum of Civilisation, there is an ancient carving of an ‘ukpik’ (snow owl) in white soapstone so lightly and subtly done, you feel like looking at a metaphor of silent flight .The ‘Cyclades … Continue reading
http://www.melkadel.com/ Delicate drawings and paperwork from Mel Kadel. It is full of light nonsense and caustic charm. Is the character exploring the book, living in it or trying to escape?
http://www.onexposure.net/?photos=abstract Lovely site, full of photographic art at its best.
http://gallery.artlimited.net/user/0/0/0/5/3/3/1/img49664.jpg Mesmerizing picture :you feel like stopping everything and start to think about infinity. Too bad this is an ‘orphan’ image, with no further link.I can’t say wether this is painting or digital art.
http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=8636200 The paintings of KatHannah are lively and poetic, with attractive colours: thank you again, Painting! Note:I like the title of this one!
http://www.dennisbuckman.com/gallery/g_rural/rural.htm Dennis Buckman metamophoses his photographs for the special effects and emotions he wishes to convey .This one is called ‘Farm Comet’;I especially like the expressive balance between centripede curves and outspreading lines: an explosion of light after the comet? … Continue reading
http://www.roijames.com/work/Meditation%20on%20Form%201.htm Bemired meditation perhaps ;) ,but fascinating abstract paintings on this site,by James Roi.
http://rinderart.com/-/rinderart/default.asp Laurin Rinder’s site: a must if you enjoy painting and photography (with a very pleasant musical background). Some of the landscapes’ photographs have been metamorphosed into abstract forms .I particularly enjoyed these as well as the actual abstract paintings.
http://www.digitalview.at/index.php?showimage=286 Martin Draschl photoblog is highly creative: unusual angles and light, subjects going from landscape to people and macro; beautiful abstracts.
http://photo.net/photodb/photo?photo_id=6365896 Iaia Gagliani’s portfolio shows a great mastery of light and lines ;highly elegant and refined images. The reference was found on AliciaKeys’pages, thank you!
http://www.columbia.edu/cu/arthistory/images/ah_faculty_schama_book_lalg.jpg For the curious mind, here is where I found the reference about wooden books in the 18th century . By the way, it is one of the richest book about our collective memory I ever read. We don’t discover … Continue reading
http://www.funforever.net/archives/green/ Would the book’s title be about grass husbandry,this would achieve what the 18th century did with the ‘xyloteques’ (wooden books; botanical volumes about beeches would be printed on beech tree leaves with binding from the same wood ).An alliance … Continue reading
http://freakymartin.com/2008/01/17/the-best-photos-of-2007-msnbc-version-73-photos/ Flowers’fields as an abstract painting
http://dativ.at/fotos/panoramas/index.html More links can be found on this page about click and drag panoramic photography.
http://dativ.at/fotos/panoramas/adr/leopoldsberg3_adr.html Do you wish to really feel standing on a hill, looking at Vienna down below? See this site of the panoramas’photographer Bernhard Vogl.You click and drag and you’ll be the eye in the landscape!Quite astonishing.
http://www.craigkosak.com/arbor-italia.html Here is an unexpected mixture of realism and abstraction ( Arbor Italia )- a bit overwhelming but riveting; a very hot day in Italy indeed.I don’t remember where I picked up the site,at Painting‘s again probably!
http://zembot.stumbleupon.com/ Interesting!The caption is a bit sad though (‘Anywhere else’).Zembot’s site is full of originality and you can surf in her universe on her own choice of songs (The Doors, Led Zeppelin, Enya, Eminem…)Thank you Ggene for rating this blog!
http://fiatbrat70.stumbleupon.com/ Woudn’t you like to row a boat there, in the mornings’ silence, hearing only water sounds ( and mosquitoes ;) )? This picture is taken from FIATBRAT70, Louisiana, whose reflections are also interesting: thank you!
http://bp1.blogger.com/_rU4M3yrJcrQ/RjPyVx15zQI/AAAAAAAAAIw/ykvSVmR7g1k/s1600-h/morandi.jpg I finally found a painting of Giorgio Morandi (1890-1964,Bologna),about whom I was talking about Jan.31(see ‘Loretta Lux’).The italian sites call him:the painter of silence; it might apply to Loretta Lux photographs also I think. (Someone wrote-sorry,I don’t remember where- … Continue reading
