and nearly finished "Caroline (Playing the Guitar)" so here's a first look (can you guess what colour the white stripes are going to be?)
Modern Life is Art
Abstract Heads - a series of acrylic paintings of abstract heads.
View from the Mies Pavilion - a series of sculptural works; and
Modern Life is Art - this series of works for Drap Art 2008.
Martin Creed makes a lot of rubbish art. And as a Turner Prize winner, he's certainly influential. So here's a few of his works (and, incidentally, he calls all of his works "Work ###).
Drap Art Project 1
Here are some of my Drap Art works, and a space at the Picasso Museum which would be an ideal place for them.
L S Lowry
"...Lowry ventures no answer. Like other great artists, he only poses questions."Â (p.18 Levy, The Paintings of L.S. Lowry, 1975)
It is the measure of great, architectural composition - composition in the classic mould - that the eye always finds a point of ultimate reference: a core of stillness, or of simulation, which exists at the heart of the construction, and beyond all the impedimentia of incidental detail. (p.12 Levy, The Paintings of L.S. Lowry, 1975)
"Albert Camus has written: 'I know from my own experience, that a man's life-work is nothing but a long journey to find again, by all the detours of art, the two or three powerful images upon which his whole being is opened for the first time.'"(p.12 Levy, The Paintings of L.S. Lowry, 1975)
Is it art?
There is a series of photos of "The Artist at Work" here...
I had decided to work on two, or even three Heads at a time, because of the time it takes waiting for paint to dry. But after starting these two today I have realised that I get into a "colour" frame of mind, and need to work on just one set at a time.
