Lesson: Bad Hair Day (Line and Shape) A change in curriculum structure: You may have read about the way we structured our Art Survey course last year in my post about the Identity Sketchbook Cover.

Lesson: Bad Hair Day (Line and Shape)

After looking at the pros and cons of this intense structure (1 Element of Art each week), I wanted to develop a less intense path. While I felt like my students really got to know the Elements really well last year, I just felt that it was a lot of work for both me and my students (which isn't a bad thing, necessarily). I also really wanted some more major pieces of art along the way (especially for the All-City Art Show, which we need to have artwork for by January). Look Within: Self-Portraiture.

Archibald 2015: Nigel Milsom's portrait of barrister Charles Waterstreet favoured to win portrait prize

"I'm not that confident about winning it," he said. Nigel Milsom's portrait of barrister Charles Waterstreet is a strong contender for this year's Archibald Prize. Milsom won the Doug Moran National Portrait Prize in 2013 while he was in jail for armed robbery after he held up a convenience store in Glebe with his drug dealer James Simon. Daniel Gordon - Still Lifes, Portraits and Parts. For his series Still Lifes, Portraits and Parts, Daniel Gordon first created three-dimensional sculptures—made from collages of printed digital imagery borrowed from magazines and the Internet—and then photographed them with a 4 x 5 view camera.

Daniel Gordon - Still Lifes, Portraits and Parts

The resulting images are interesting examples of appropriation art in that the materials and images are culled from other sources and re-used, while the subjects and compositions reference Modernist masters like Picasso, Dalí, Matisse, and Cézanne. “I’m inspired by cooking and food, Matisse, and being in the ocean, among other things,” the artist Daniel Gordon says. “I begin with an idea of something I’d like to make, search for images online, print them, and then construct a three dimensional tableau that is then lit and photographed with a large format camera,” he explains. Daniel Gordon uses photography to create images that toy with notions of artifice and authenticity. Look Within: Self-Portraiture - the arts(7,8,9,10) - ABC Splash -

In a way she brings together the best of both worlds, maintaining a level of detail that respects the real subject, but with an overall aesthetic that seems to bring across emotion more powerfully than a photograph would. From certain angles it seems that the subject of the portrait is a carrier of the artists own personality – almost a self portrait within an alternate vehicle. INSTALLATIONS. Pre-Nostalgic is a 24 channel audio/visual installation of animated sound, sculpture ​ and drawing.

Artist Uses Dance Movements To Create Stunning Charcoal Drawings. Hong Chun Zhang: Hairy Art. 30 Jul Click to enlarge Chinese artist Hong Chun Zhang, now living and working in Kansas, has found a balance between her Chinese and American artistic educations and cultures.

Hong Chun Zhang: Hairy Art

Her painting and drawing foundation from China was very rigorous, but her content choices are now less restricted due to her US exposure. Much of her work revolves around hair, something she identifies with, and characterizes her to some degree through her own long hair, in addition to being something Zhang finds both beautiful and at times repulsive. Cross-hatching. Modeling is a term that drawing borrows from sculpture to signify any graphic strategy that develops the appearance of the third dimension.


Varying line width and weight, exploring tonal contrasts, cast shadows, linear cross-sections, and atmospheric perspective are some of the ways that the draughtsman responds to the visual phenomena of the three-dimensional world. Building on the investigations of line in the early weeks of the semester, we move on to a juncture where the boundary between this most abstract of elements begins to blur into another element – value, or tone – in all of its orchestral richness. The drawings shown here all employ line in ways that express the third dimension through the development of tonality. Staunton, VA artist, Virginia Deane, employs the sharpened pencil in this drawing as if it were a pen & ink drawing, laying down distinct linear hatch marks to define tonal changes across the globular forms of the onions.

Chuck Close

Chuck Close is an artist noted for his highly inventive techniques used to paint the human face, and is best known for his large-scale, photo-based portrait paintings. Chuck Close. Chuck Close. Life and works of Margaret Olley. The Visible World: Samuel van Hoogstraten's Art Theory and the Legitimation of Painting in the Dutch Golden Age, Weststeijn. Samuel van Hoogstraten. Painter and writer, Hoogstraten is best remembered for his experiments in perspective. His perspective box, 'A Peepshow', is the best surviving example of this aspect of his art. His preoccupation with perspective may have been stimulated by his contact with Carel Fabritius when they were both students of Rembrandt in Amsterdam.

Hoogstraten was a native of Dordrecht, where he was first trained by his father. He moved to Amsterdam shortly after his father's death in December 1640 and received further training in the studio of Rembrandt, at the time when Carel Fabritius was also there. His early works show the influence of Rembrandt. View of an Interior, or The Slippers (traditional title, given in the 19th century) From 1839-42 to 1877-83, this painting bore Pieter de Hooch's monogram with the not unlikely date of 1658. Contemporary with the early work of de Hooch and Vermeer, it was formerly attributed to each but is quite distinct from the latter's experiments. Alluding - as does the Ter Borch-inspired picture in the background - to the vain and gallant pastimes of the absent mistress of the house, this is a subtly moralistic piece, a fascinating exercise in perspective, and a painting of poetic calm.

Perspective and poetry What is striking here at first is the absence of subject, or at least of any figures to animate this peaceful Dutch interior. Hoogstraten focused all his attention on the rigorous spatial construction. Hi, My art practise is based upon two simple things. Paper and clay. Barton claims second Archibald Prize - myZOO.
