Paul Landl, Fotograf Symbolist Photography Manifesto The repertoire of forms and shapes of a symbolist photographer encompasses the depiction of theatrical and monumental elements, aestheticism and originality. Opulence is contrasted with simplicity. The world of thoughts of a symbolist photographer in aphorisms The combination of the hundredths of a second of taking a photo and the time consuming subsequent editing is one closed system. The artistic process is purer and more exciting than the expected result The art is to try to suit yourself and others. The love of kitsch is the cleverness to put all things good and evil into an attractive light. My heart is unable to translate it. Even the wise do not always comprehend the intention. The wave of reason ebbs away in the crowd. Behaviour may be unprofessional, but the works are not Once turned to poetry, one will always look for self-fulfilment in the perfect word. The beauty of the individual is in the eye of the beholder. We are exactly what we have decided to be

Water to Paper, Paint to Sky: The Art of Tyrus Wong | The Walt Disney Family Museum August 15–February 3, 2014 From August 15, 2013 to February 3, 2014, The Walt Disney Family Museum will present the exhibition Water to Paper, Paint to Sky: The Art of Tyrus Wong. Organized by Michael Labrie, the museum’s director of collections, the exhibition will focus on the life and work of Chinese-American artist Tyrus Wong—a celebrated painter, muralist, kite maker, lithographer, Hollywood sketch artist, calligrapher, ceramicist, and Disney Legend. At age 102, Wong is still a practicing artist today. This retrospective features more than 150 works including paintings, sculptures, works on paper, painted scarves, kites, and more. In 1938, Wong took a job at the Walt Disney Studios as an inbetweener, one who goes through the tedious process of making “in-between” drawings that filled out the movement of the characters between the animators’ key drawings. In 2001, Wong was named a Disney Legend, and his work continues to inspire and influence the leading animators of today.
Projects | The Wade Brothers John Frame - Portland Art Museum Three Fragments of a Lost Tale Art, music, poetry, and film come together in John Frame’s ambitious project The Tale of the Crippled Boy. The end goal of this ongoing project is a feature-length collection of animated and live film vignettes. Since 2006, Frame, a California-based sculptor, has been working toward the creation of a stop-motion animated drama featuring an eclectic cast of fully articulated characters composed of found materials and meticulously carved wood. The exhibition will include the sculptures that have become the cast of characters in Frame’s evolving full-length film, as well as the film footage created thus far in this monumental project. To learn more about John Frame, visit www.johnframesculpture.com/portland. Originally organized by the Huntington Library, Art Collections, and Botanical Gardens; the exhibition is curated by Bruce Guenther, chief curator for its Portland presentation. Sponsored in part by The McGeady Family Foundation.

GUP - Guide to Unique Photography Spanish photographer Chema Madoz (b. 1958, Madrid) has developed his unique photographic style since the 1980s. He studied Art History and Photography simultaneously and held his first solo show in 1985, also in Madrid. His images deconstruct and reinterpret everyday objects in order to create a different world. His series presents objects manipulated in such a way that they become something entirely different. When asked what his interest is in the ‘other life of objects’, Madoz explained that, when he was young, he “suddenly understood the possibility that some things can change in use and appearance very quickly”.
This Crazy Visual Symphony Is Like Being Inside a Computer, on Drugs The performance is scripted, but the performers on stage add their own flavor to the proceedings, like a musical performer. Ryoji Ikeda Microfiche, crossword puzzles, and Morse Code don’t sound like the makings of a compelling live performance, but in the hands of Japanese maestro Ryoji Ikeda, these mundane materials become the core of a dynamic audio-visual spectacle called Superposition. The hour-long performance is something like a high-tech rave with a year’s worth of high-school science class schizophrenically drawn upon as its raw material. Ikeda is best known for his experimental musical compositions with cryptic titles like +/-. Though it’s driven by software, Superposition is meant to be a human experience. Garin and Grould control Ikeda’s work through custom made “instruments.” A morse code key is repurposed as an artful instrument. Superposition artfully combines human and machine capabilities.
The Caresses Fernand Khnopff Wholesale Oil Painting China Picture Frame 53341 Fernand Khnopff: 1858-1921 Belgian Fernand Khnopff Gallery Fernand Khnopff was born to a wealthy family that was part of the high bourgeoisie for generations. Khnopff's ancestors had lived in Flanders since the early 17th-century but were of Austrian and Portuguese descent. Most male members of his family had been lawyers or judges, and young Fernand was destined for a juridical career. In his early childhood (1859-1864) he lived in Bruges where his father was appointed Substitut Du Procureur Du Roi. His childhood memories of the medieval city of Bruges would play a significant role in his later work.

Gustave Moreau Biography Moreau was born in Paris. His father, Louis Jean Marie Moreau, was an architect, who recognized his talent. His mother was Adele Pauline des Moutiers. Moreau initially studied under the guidance of François-Édouard Picot and became a friend of Théodore Chassériau, whose work strongly influenced his own. Moreau became a professor at Paris' École des Beaux-Arts in 1891 and among his many students were the fauvist painters, Henri Matisse and Georges Rouault. Moreau died in Paris and was buried there in the Cimetière de Montmartre. During his lifetime, Moreau produced more than 8,000 paintings, watercolors and drawings, many of which are on display in Paris' Musée national Gustave Moreau at 14 rue de la Rochefoucauld (9th arrondissement).
