Doing so, I imagine a mathematical (geometric) construction rule, which is next programmed on the computer. In the second step, I influence the primary rule by introducing random factors, based on number generation. To organize 2D space using mathematical rules, I start from a chosen primary structure (either as described by a mathematical law, or as a raw image); iteratively elementary forms will progress following self-programmed algorithms to fill the entire 2D space.

Robert Delaunay on Abstract Art Framed. Robert Delaunay’s gift to us is his bold use of colour.

Robert Delaunay on Abstract Art Framed

His paintings express a great love of what he sees as the rhythm of nature and the movement of colors. His work using coloured ‘simultaneous discs’ was influenced by the research of the 19th century chemist Eugene Chevreul who concluded that "Two adjacent colours, when seen by the eye, will appear as dissimilar as possible". Delaunay’s work encourages us to see the world with fresh eyes, to notice the shape and colour of the world around us.

Project ART-A-DAY: 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).

So, instead, we structured the curriculum to focus on a few Elements at a time, with the same idea of using the sketchbook for notes and exercises, and then applying those together into a piece of artwork. The Visual Elements of Art. The Visual Elements - Pattern.

However, as you look closer you realize it’s a bit more than the usual. Aside from the solid retouching, lighting and overall execution, Vallinas took this anthropomorphic project a bit further and imagined what the fully-realized wardrobe of each animal might look like if it were wearing human clothes. This project, titled Segundas Pieles (Second Skins), is an ongoing series that includes some 50+ animals whose personalities seem to be perfectly amplified by their pitch-perfect attire, making the portraits more like human nature facing your inner animal.

10 Things You Should Know About Mark Rothko. Individual experience is key Rothko strongly believed in the importance of individual, personal experience in relation to his paintings. In his vision, the viewer would be drawn into a deep, quasi-religious relationship when faced with the canvas, a state of emotional vulnerability and total receptiveness, analogous to Rothko’s own emotional state as he painted the canvas in his studio.The Gemeentemuseum has put this conviction into practice ingeniously, hanging several paintings individually inside small, private alcoves that allow for quiet contemplation, and create microcosms of personal experience. The master of colour ‘[wasn’t] interested in colour’ Since his untimely death, Rothko’s pioneering of the Color Field movement has been described by many critics as indisputable, and groundbreaking.

CRITICAL & HISTORICAL STUDIES

Seurat - Private life of a Masterpiece (BBC Documentary) Fauvism Movement. "If the trees look yellow to the artist then painted a bright yellow they must be. " Synopsis Fauvism was the first twentieth-century movement in modern art. Inspired by the examples of van Gogh, Gauguin, Seurat, and Cézanne, it grew out of a loosely allied group of French painters with shared interests. Henri Matisse was eventually recognized as the leader of Les Fauves, or "The Wild Beasts," and like the group, he emphasized the use of intense color as a vehicle for describing light and space, as well as for communicating the artist's emotional state. In these regards, Fauvism proved to be an important precursor to Cubism and Expressionism, respectively, and an inspiration for future modes of abstraction.

Key Ideas Fauvism never developed into a coherent movement in the manner of Impressionism or Surrealism, but instead grew from the work of several acquaintances who shared common enthusiasms.
