Paintings, sculpture, architecture?

Post by Baden » Wed Aug 01, 2012 8:26 pm

We had many posts about favorite music.

Only a part of the "arts".

It is interesting to watch a thread like "musical interlude".

Perhaps we might deal with the other arts as well?

I avoid to post anything so far. Just hope for an open discussion.

This is one of her prints.

For sure! "Rodin" is undisputed like Rembrandt or Beethoven.

Judge? I didn't realize this was going to be some kind of competition. I figured it was something that we liked and cared to share.

i still cannot go past Michangelo's Sistine chapel masterpiece as possibly my favourite piece of art, period. To actually experience it in person is one of my truly awe-inspiring moments in life......one of those "you really had to be there moments", to look up, to the left, to the right, and straight ahead, and witness one of the greatest artists in all of his glory......in fact, most of the art work in the vatican museums has to be seen to be believed; Raphael's room, the map room, the room of tapestries.......man, i could have spent a year in there.......

I share your admiration of Michelangelo. This here might be interesting for you:

"The Dutch Michelangelo".

An upcoming exposition (from Sep. 29 th) in one of the finest museums I ever visited.

Ha. As an MFA candidate (yep I'm in art school) I'll have 50 piles of stuff to add to this. Rafael Lozano Hemmer is one of my current influences:

http://www.lozano-hemmer.com/pulse_park.php

There are a ton of interesting projects he's done, you can spend hours at his website.

I rarely find concept art so enjoyable! Usually I "get" what the symbolism is, but in the world of my senses it does not strike me. This is COOL! I would have loved to take part in the sandbox.

Good one!

Also, I hope everyone looks at rodin's "the crouching woman". I didn't pick it because he is a master. I picked it because that individual piece is amazing.

Great topic, Baden!

It is amazing because he is master! As simple as that!

I am involved in the art business as unsalaried promoter on a high and professional level. And believe me: There are only few talents who make a big and deserved career. Watch the Olympics: You have to find the young professional talents. Like trainers my wife (a professional painter) and me did that. You watch hundreds and promote a dozen in a span of two decades. And from that dozen three or four get international attention.

Musicians don't get in the top as well easily.

Of course there are many good artists who get less attention.

My advice: Just visit museums and private exhibitions. Sharpen your eye. But believe me: You have to learn and study. With pure enthusiasm without a solid base of knowledge you may decorate your room however.

Give the young talents a chance. Watch them and buy since they need money. But avoid charlatans.

A good effort but where is the knack or some kind of provocation?

I believe seeing your heart beat fill a park and wash over people is provocative. Imagine how the person feels as they feel their own heartbeat- a very private experience- and see it surround other human beings. It is not just a trick with lights. It is a profound act of both feeling yourself a part of the world and experiencing the basic rythem of another human beings life.

Of course I might be your friend if I fullfill your stupid prejudice. Germans like David Hasseloff etc.

Of course I will not be your friend either if I did post here a statement about Mannierism of Dutch painters in the 16th century.

I could. But it would be a waste of time.

You would not listen.

I find the notion of judging any art (literature, music, film, "fine" etc.) to be a fairly pointless exercise. Well, no, let me rephrase: It is reasonable to judge all art PERSONALLY, but to make GENERAL critiques is often unfair. All Art is a form of communication, and as such, different people's perspectives will interpret the artistry in different ways. Any critic claiming to represent the general message is fooling himself. However, there ARE some general comments or questions a learned art historian can make, pointing out comparisons and contrasts with other work etc. And I think Baden's questions are actually quite reasonable when taken literally, and not as a dismissive comment:

That is, "Hoodie, how do YOU feel provoked by Lorenzo's work?" Hoodie's response is more valuable to us, showing us how the work affects him, and why Lorenzo is interesting as an artist to him. The challenge lies in attempting to represent our emotional responses to the work in human language.

From my personal perspective, I'm drawn most to the works of Salvador Dali Llama

Those of you who thought the Dali Llama was human clearly have no concept on how surreal a camelid can be....

Perhaps you may agree that "Bob Ross" is no "joy of painting"?
