Experimental Composer Kelly Moran on Finding Your Sound – News – Spotify for Artists Her work with prepared piano is leaping across classical music boundaries. It’s extremely tough to break through as a young classical musician, and even if you do, it takes a special kind of magic to do it in a way that bridges genres and captivates a broad audience. But with a meticulous blend of sprawling prepared piano—a technique involving placing objects in the strings of a piano to give it a more atonal, percussive sound—and warm, heavy synths, pianist Kelly Moran has done exactly that. The Amazing Art of Disabled Artists Some of the best artists deal with disabilities in their everyday lives that the rest of us can’t even imagine living with, and use art to communicate with the world.

Creative Kickstart: Spark Your Creative Fire *A guest post by Art Journal Kickstarter artist Jessica Sporn. Do you ever sit down to create, but find you’re stuck? When I don’t have a clear project or idea in mind, I need to get my hands working and full of paint or ink to get my inspiration going. Closer to Van Eyck The panels of the Ghent Altarpiece are coated with layers of varnish. Varnish serves as a protective coating for paint layers and has important optical functions, since it saturates a painting's colors and creates a more even surface. However, most varnishes gradually degrade over time, getting brittle and opaque, and becoming a darkened and yellowed layer that can dramatically impact the perception of a painting's colors and tonal values. Since a degraded varnish will make the dark areas appear lighter, it will also affect our perception of the rendering of volume and space. Applying a new layer of varnish over a degraded one can sometimes improve the situation for a time, but restorers routinely remove and replace old varnish layers. During the 2010 urgent conservation treatment of the Ghent Altarpiece, cleaning tests were performed to establish the condition, compounds used, and solubility of the varnish layers.

Gelli Plate: Intaglio-Inspired Printing (This tutorial was previously published in the book Gelli Plate Printing by Joan Bess, copyright 2014; republished here courtesy of North Light Books and CreateMixedMedia.com.) Intaglio (pronounced in-TAL-ee-oh) prints are created from an etched plate that’s been inked and wiped so that all that remains is the ink in the incised areas. An inked plate is covered with printing paper and put through a press, which pushes the paper into the grooves to transfer the ink, creating the print. The Gelli print adaptation is inspired by intaglio printing and does not use a press.
