BLU Collage, 2003 Wabi Sabi, an aesthetic concept intimately related to Japan and Zen Buddhism, is a way of perceiving things. "...the Japanese cultural source of this law of continual, cyclical evolution and decay parallels the British cultural mood of determination, stubbornness and pride which mandates a belief in improvement during times of hardship." (1) Wabi Sabi is a aesthetic concept intimately related to Japan and Zen Buddhism. However, it is not a "style of art" but rather a way of perceiving things, a very refined culture of things imperfect, impermanent and incomplete that expresses itself in great freedom of form, sublime colors, and a simplicity. Things of wabi-sabi nature are understated and unassuming, yet they do have presence and quiet authority and describe the transience and solitude of existence, an existential loneliness and tender sadness, in short: the essence of Zen.

Ci-haut, cette peinture est une oeuvre de l’artiste québécoise, Ani Müller En psychologie, je suis surtout tenant de l’école cognitive , c’est-à-dire que je considère le cerveau comme un gros ordinateur biologique. De la sorte, en me réveillant le matin, il m’apparait toujours opportun d’analyser mes rêves afin d’y comprendre quelques préoccupations de mon inconscient; cette information personnelle traitée par le cerveau au repos. Peu importe, durant ma première nuit dans le nouvel appartement d’Anne-Marie, j’ai fais un rêve que je qualifierai de symbolique, soit vraisemblablement un rêve illustrant ma révolte envers le néolibéralisme . Mon rêve commence donc ainsi : je suis dans la cour de la Coop La Loge, un endroit où j’ai habité dans mon enfance.
surrealism, surrealists paintings, surrealism art, surrealist artists, surrealistic painters, magic realism, art fantasySurrealism is a cultural movement that began in the early-1920s, and is best known for the visual artworks and writings of the group members. Surrealist works feature the element of surprise, unexpected juxtapositions and non sequitur; however many Surrealist artists and writers regard their work as an expression of the philosophical movement first and foremost, with the works being an artifact. Leader André Breton was explicit in his assertion that Surrealism was above all a revolutionary movement.

The readymades of Marcel Duchamp are ordinary manufactured objects that the artist selected and modified, as an antidote to what he called "retinal art". [ 1 ] By simply choosing the object (or objects) and repositioning or joining, titling and signing it, the object became art. As the process involved the least amount of interaction between artist and art, it represented the most extreme form of minimalism up to that time. [ citation needed ] Duchamp was not interested in what he called retinal art — art that was only visual — and sought other methods of expression.

Ferrofluids Go Next Level Technicolor In Fabian Oefner's Amazing Images A ferrofluid is a magnetized liquid that creates all manner of bizarre patterns that look like the surface of a distant planet’s moon. Because of that, they’ve been featured in a ton of videos and artworks lately, but so far these have mainly been black and white, with maybe some silver thrown in to add a bit of pizzaz. But photographer Fabian Oefner is breaking with this monochromatic tradition by throwing water colors into the mix and bringing in some much-needed luminosity in his series Millefiori . Oefner’s alchemical magic is created by mixing a ferrofluid with water colors in a magnetic field.

By Damien Gayle PUBLISHED: 11:28 GMT, 9 June 2012 | UPDATED: 14:56 GMT, 9 June 2012 With their spectacular use of focus and reflected light, these incredible artworks look like carefully composed still-life photographs. But in fact they are all painstakingly rendered on canvas with acrylic paints by Canadian artist Jason de Graaf. The hyperrealistic paintings, which almost appear as if they are computer generated, are like freeze frames of a world more magical than our own - inspiring the term Magic Realism as a description.
