An Object to Represent The Art of Eating Prize | Art of Eating. February 24, 2015 Kimberly Behr After we announced the existence of The Art of Eating Prize, we realized there should some physical object to accompany it — but what? Maybe not a medal on a ribbon or an Oscar-like statuette. Because the prize is for writing, a product of craft (like the best food), we thought we should give an individually crafted object. The craftsman who made these tools to honor the prize is Lucian Avery, a blacksmith who lives in Hardwick, Vermont. Explore Art. New Artista. ART. COOL STUFF. Exhibere.

Doug Bloodworth enjoys evoking the viewer’s nostalgic feelings of one’s childhood, be that in comic books, games we played, or our comfort foods. In 1974 Doug earned a degree in Commercial Arts and went on during the early stages of his career to work in several genres of the art world. From painting caricatures to billboards, Doug’s pursuits steered him towards the mastery of fine art techniques and a working mentorship with Marv Gunderson, the exclusive artist for the Marlboro brand.

Painting iconic works on billboards all over the country was a highlight early on in his career and he still draws from the inspiration and lessons learned during the tour. Doug has since been commissioned to paint two 30’ x 200’ murals at Tampa’s Tropicana Field, a project which took six months to complete and inspired him to focus solely on painting fine art pieces. The influence of paper printed comics from eras past is still tangible in Doug Bloodworth’s photorealism.

Cover Stories: Seeing Waste in a New Light. For this week’s special issue “Working with Waste,” our cover features a photograph of bales of compressed aluminum cans destined for recycling—aptly titled “Blocks to Go.”

It is the work of Washington, DC–based photographer Huguette Roe, who is quick to suggest another creative use for these blocks. “I have a small one I want to keep to make a table," she says. "It would be not reusing for consumption, but for artistic enjoyment.” This sentiment exemplifies Roe’s general sensitivity toward environmental issues. She maintains that our society encourages the steady consumption of new products, resulting in a massive proliferation of trash and nonbiodegradable waste. Consumers have little incentive to reuse things and to minimize the amount of waste they produce. This core ethos of looking at something in a new light, be it a discarded soda can or an idea, has influenced her artistic style. Plastic coating from recycled wiring.

As I’m a lass, I realize I can always have plenty of excuses, (no it’s not the headache this time, dear) – it’s just something else…but what? I can’t hardly wait to the end of this year. Pretty troublesome lately, pretty interesting the whole, pretty amazing, pretty much whatever I expected that suddenly happened, mesmerizing my body and soul.

‘Singing and swinging and getting merry like Christmas’ told me once Maya Angelou. It’s true, but these time of the year makes me feel troubled. Totally eerie. As there’s no one at the moment taking care of these firecrackers of mine, trying to reassure I’m going to make it to survive the holidays and keep it safe for the next year, I just have to handle the fact that I need to iron a pile of clothes and eat those Xmas leftovers.

Book Art That Will Melt Your Brain. The Unilever Series: Ai Weiwei: Sunflower Seeds. 1 of 4 About the exhibition Sunflower Seeds is made up of millions of small works, each apparently identical, but actually unique. However realistic they may seem, these life-sized sunflower seed husks are in fact intricately hand-crafted in porcelain. Each seed has been individually sculpted and painted by specialists working in small-scale workshops in the Chinese city of Jingdezhen.

Porcelain is almost synonymous with China and, to make this work, Ai Weiwei has manipulated traditional methods of crafting what has historically been one of China’s most prized exports. Update: Friday 22 October 2010 The landscape of sunflower seeds can be looked upon from the Turbine Hall bridge, or viewed at close range in the east end of the Turbine Hall on Level 1. Although porcelain is very robust, we have been advised that the interaction of visitors with the sculpture can cause dust which could be damaging to health following repeated inhalation over a long period of time. Ai Weiwei. Ai Weiwei; Ai Weiwei, Circle of Animals/Zodiac Heads – review | Art and design | The Observer. His art is here, but where is he? That is the question irresistibly raised by the sculptures and films in Ai Weiwei's new show at the Lisson Gallery in London. The works themselves only just made it out of China following the artist's arrest on 3 April.

One curious customs officer is all it would have taken for his art, too, to be seized. Ai has been missing now for exactly six weeks. In all this time, the Chinese government has given no satisfactory answers to anxious questions from around the world about his health, conditions or whereabouts. Nobody has seen or heard from him since. The horror of Ai's fate has already been brought home to us quite directly in Britain. A spirit of solidarity would be enough to impel one to the Lisson Gallery or indeed Somerset House, where Ai's Circle of Animals/Zodiac Heads was unveiled this week. Old objects are recreated in new materials. Two such cameras appeared outside Ai's Beijing studio a few years ago. Chinese artist Ai Weiwei announced as art world's most powerful figure | Art and design. The dissident Chinese artist Ai Weiwei, who shot to worldwide prominence this April when he was imprisoned by the Chinese authorities for 81 days for what were described as "economic crimes", has been named the most powerful figure in the art world by Art Review magazine in its annual art "power 100 list".

Mark Rappolt, editor of the magazine, said that Ai – who was No 13 on the list last year – had reminded the art world of its wider political role, as an agent of protest outside the sometimes inward-looking domain of galleries and museums. "His activism has been a reminder of how art can reach out to a bigger audience and connect with the real world," he said. "Institutions, while they are really important, can be great tombs. " The highest-ranking British figure is Julia Peyton-Jones, co-director of the Serpentine Gallery. The Serpentine, Rappolt said, was "really growing into something freewheeling, and not limited by its modest space".

Dictaphone Group | About. Dictaphone Group is a research and performance collective that creates live art events based on multidisciplinary study of space. It is a collaborative project initiated by live artist Tania El Khoury and architect/urbanist Abir Saksouk. Together along with various collaborators such as performer and producer Petra Serhal, they have been creating site specific performances informed by research in a variety of places like a cable car, a fisherman’s boat, and a discontinued bus. The aim of these projects is to question, as citizens, our relationship to the city, with a focus on public space, and the goal of its redefinition. In the context of war induced shifting geographies such as in Lebanon, the ironies of the war did not spare the post-war reconstruction projects.

Across Beirut, forms would emerge with disregard to history and social context. Bridging the fields of “social scientific research” and “art” is hence our approach. Illustrare. Paint. Recyclart. Sculptura. Digi Pixels. Photasme. Polymath Renaissance. Quotatio. New Artsy.
