Extraordinary Brush-Less Paintings

While her paintings use tons and tons of paint, she doesn't use paintbrushes to create them! Rather, she squeezes paint onto canvases and then allows the paint to naturally drip. She then rotates the canvas to control the direction of the drips, making her paintings appear natural yet controlled. John Currin 1962- « Femme Femme Femme. Doit-on penser aux Cranach, à Hans Baldung Grien ou à Albrecht Dûrer devant les peintures de John Currin?

John Currin 1962- « Femme Femme Femme

The old fence 1999 The pink tree The go see 1999 Three friends 1998 Les œuvres de John Currin relèvent d’un jeu sur le kitsch et les clichés, de références à la « mauvaise peinture » et d’un certain plaisir à l’avilissement des modèles, en même temps qu’elles témoignent d’une connaissance approfondie de l’histoire de l’art par des renvois constants aux peintres du passé (Cranach, Boucher, Fragonard, Courbet, Manet…).

Anthropomorphism. Anthropomorphism, or personification, is attribution of human form or other characteristics to anything other than a human being.


Examples include depicting deities with human form and ascribing human emotions or motives to forces of nature, such as hurricanes or earthquakes. Anthropomorphism has ancient roots as a literary device in storytelling, and also in art. Most cultures have traditional fables with anthropomorphised animals, which can stand or talk like humans, as characters. The word anthropomorphism was first used in the mid-1700s.[1][2] The word derives from the Greek ἄνθρωπος (ánthrōpos), "human", and μορφή (morphē), "shape" or "form".

Dirt Art. Paintings - GENTRY. 049. Ralph Steadman - Carp Crazy Carp originated in China and Eastern Siberia and are now jumping in the rivers of Illinois. How they got there is open to speculation. Most things seem to originate in China - so you would think that they are a far more successful nation than the United States. However, I think that America celebrates success more personally and I presume that the Chinese do not reward their citizens quite so generously. Carp, however, always appear to me to be a far too exotic fish to simply eat. Perhaps we should not be eating 'pretty Carp' at all!
