Judith Ann Braun's Fingers Are Magical With an art career spanning more than three decades, Judith Ann Braun has tested the limits of her artistic musculature. She began as a self-described “realistic figure painter,” and worked through the struggles common to anyone who endeavors upon an artistic pursuit, that of searching for one’s own voice in the chosen medium. Fast forward to the 21st century where the evolution of Braun’s work has brought us to the Fingerings series, a collection of charcoal dust landscapes and abstracts “painted” using not brushes but her fingertips. Braun has a specific interest in symmetry, as evidenced by the patterns she follows in a number of the Fingerings pieces as well as work in the Symmetrical Procedures collection. Her fingerprints are obvious up close in some of the paintings, though a step back and the grandeur of Braun’s imagination sprawls into a landscape of soft hills, overhanging trees, delicate florals, and a reflective waterway.

ART! The other night a few of us painted at an event called “Art After Dark” at the Honolulu Museum of Art. The best part was when this little girl fearlessly walked up on the stage and joined in on the action. Photo by Lucky, he painted the skull. More photos below (in reverse order). Photos by Brandon Shigeta Photo by Meggs Construction Vehicle Sculptures Wim Delvoye, a talented Belgian conceptual artist, has created a series of heavy-duty vehicles laser cut from steel. Enjoy!

Hamburger Bahnhof - Museum für Gegenwart - Berlin Der Hamburger Bahnhof – Museum für Gegenwart – Berlin beherbergt reiche Sammlungen zeitgenössischer Kunst, die in einer Vielzahl von Ausstellungen gezeigt werden. Er ist das größte Haus der Nationalgalerie, deren umfassende Bestände außerdem in der Alten Nationalgalerie, der Neuen Nationalgalerie, der Friedrichswerderschen Kirche, dem Museum Berggruen und der Sammlung Scharf-Gerstenberg zu finden sind. Wie schon aus dem Namen hervorgeht, diente der Hamburger Bahnhof einst einem gänzlich anderen Zweck. Mit dem wachsenden Verkehrsaufkommen auf den Schienen konnte der Hamburger Bahnhof trotz einiger Umbauten nicht Schritt halten, sodass 1884 seine Stilllegung folgte. Erst im Februar 1984 ging der Hamburger Bahnhof in die Verwaltung des Senats von West-Berlin über und wurde anlässlich der 750-Jahr-Feier der Stadt teilweise restauriert. Die im Jahr 2004 ins Haus gelangte Dauerleihgabe der Friedrich Christian Flick Collection machte eine umfängliche Erweiterung des Museums notwendig.

Drawing Autism Drawing Autism is an incredible collection of artwork by people diagnosed with autism, from teenage amateurs to established artists. Unlike many of the books I feature on 50 Watts, this one is in print. You should buy it. [Amazon link to the new reprint which comes out April 2, 2014 from Akashic.] This post features a small selection of my favorite images from the book, along with some quotes by the artists. Publisher's description: Over the last decade autism spectrum disorder (ASD) has become an international topic of conversation, knowing no racial, ethnic, or social barriers. Donna Williams, The Outsider What was the inspiration for this piece? "The Outsider" is about joining in from the periphery. An excerpt from the artist's answer to the question, "At what age did the act of creating art enter into your life? I was deeply mesmerized with all things aesthetic and sensory from at least 6 months of age. Felix: Imaginary City Map, Age 11 What was the inspiration for this piece None. D.

V1 GALLERY artist artist Artist: Peter Funch view cv Centre Pompidou-Metz 13 Disturbing Pieces of Art from History The media is often criticized for showing violent and disturbing imagery. Movies, TV, video games, tabletop RPGs, comic books, and various other things have all gone through periods where they're blamed for exposing children to dark and unsettling things. But as these fine art examples prove, violent and disturbing imagery is nothing new. (Obviously, this article contains some disturbing content.) 1. Painted in 1611, Massacre of the Innocents is Rubens' interpretation of Herod's order to kill every young male in Bethlehem, as recounted in the Gospel of Matthew. 2. This is but one of a series of works featuring disembodied body parts (including a painting of a pair of severed heads, equally as unsettling as this one) painted by French artist Théodore Géricault. 3. Andy Warhol is most famous for his pop art pictures of soup cans and Marilyn Monroe, but he also dabbled in some darker works, including his chilling piece, Big Electric Chair. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8. 9. 10. 11. 12. 13.

I'm glad you enjoy this Pearl. by topoletta Jan 30

I never been there but I'm sure that one day I have to go by malabona Mar 4

Next best thing to being there. Somehow, there's still something about being physically "in contact" with such art that adds a necessary dimension, imo. Glad to have the virtual alternative though, as I no longer travel (physically) by dcoda Feb 20
