How to make a Snowman Banner This is a cute project I'm doing with Kindergarten right now. Snowman Banners. Here in Calgary we just received a good dump of snow and now it's warming up (above 0 degrees celsius).....perfect snowman weather! We wanted a cute and easy project that incorporated textiles. The Melancholy Marriage of Tracey Emin and Edvard Munch LONDON — Edvard Munch and Tracey Emin — what a gloom-struck pair! We see them together, in two photographs hung side by side on the wall, as we enter the exhibition at the Royal Academy. They look uncannily of a pair, help-mates perhaps, fellow sufferers certainly, almost drowning in their dark, almost sepia withdrawnness from the world. He is long dead. She has been gravely ill recently. And yet, such has been the deft manipulation of these images, that they could almost, we feel, have been alive together in the nowness of our present.

This Object Doesn't Really Exist...When You See What I Mean You'll Flip Felice Varini is a Swiss artist known for his mind-bending designs, which consist of so-called perspective-localized paintings. These are shapes that appear three-dimensional when viewed from one vantage point, but which are in fact a skillfully-arrayed geometry of flat graphics painted onto the surfaces. The technical term for this is "anamorphosis" from the Greek prefix "ana-" meaning back or again, and "morphe" meaning shape or form. But no words can do justice to how unreal these look.

Tracey Emin Says She Was Sexually Assaulted by a Famous Woman Artist Tracey Emin (photo by Piers Allardyce, via Wikimedia Commons) In a recent interview, British artist Tracey Emin said that she had been sexually assaulted by a well-known woman artist, though she did not name her alleged attacker. “The irony is it happened to be a woman that grabbed hold of my crotch, slammed me against a wall and I threatened to punch her lights out,” Emin told collector Kenny Goss in an interview, as the Sun first reported on Sunday. In a subsequent interview with Radio 4, she added: “Quite often everybody’s making accusations and saying things about men, but it happens with everybody in many, many different circumstances, and people don’t seem to be seeing the whole picture in that harassment is actually bullying in a lot of cases as well.” Emin was speaking to Goss on the occasion of the upcoming MTV Re:Define, charity auction in Dallas, where she is this year’s honoree.
