Judy Watson Dans son thème Mina Mina, Judy Watson ne manque jamais de peindre le motif de deux lignes qui s'enroulent. Cette figure n'est pas sans rappeler les entrelacs celtiques ou la représentation, chez les indiens amazoniens du double serpent mythique. Les lacs, les lignes de danse, la liane serpent, les ceintures végétales vues par Judy Watson Titre Lac Mina Mina, acrylique sur lin,(visible à Paris) Pour certains anthropologues dont le principal est Jeremy Narby, l'image du double serpent (le serpent cosmique) serait une vision de l'Adn, et cette connaissance de l'intime du vivant serait innée, quasiment biologique, les peuples prmiers possédant encore ce savoir que les occidentaux redécouvrent par leurs instruments.

Brooding Cityscapes Painted with Oils by Jeremy Mann San Francisco-based artist Jeremy Mann executes these sublime, moody cityscapes using oil paints. To create each work he relies on a wide range of techniques including surface staining, the use of solvents to wipe away paint, and the application of broad, gritty marks with an ink brayer. The resulting paintings are dark and atmospheric, urban streets seemingly drenched in rain and mystery. Mann’s work is in no way limited to cityscapes, he also paints the human figure, still lifes, and landscapes. He currently has work at John Pence Gallery and you can see many more of his cityscapes here.

Tabletop Whale Amanda Sage Samantha Keely Smith - New York, NY Artist About Samantha Keely Samantha Keely Smith is a painter working and living in New York. Her art represents a striving to reconcile the inner world of instinct and the tidal sweep of our emotional life, with an external world that is both beautiful and hostile in its natural grandeur. Smith’s artwork represents a striving to reconcile the inner world of instinct and the tidal sweep of our emotional life, with an external world that is both beautiful and hostile in its natural grandeur. The translucent layers of paint, contrasting soft ethereal brushwork and harder edged sweeping gestures, echo this divergence and depict a timeless place that hovers between dream and reality in a way that is simultaneously alluring and menacing.

Global Activism: Art and Conflict in the 21st Century – We Make Money Not Art Global Activism: Art and Conflict in the 21st Century, edited by Peter Weibel. It’s on amazon USA and UK.
