Louvre Bienvenue! (Welcome from the curator) Tamayo on Ikebana Ikebana is not just about flower arranging. Through the act of ikebana, you become involved in the process of terminating the life of a botanical creature, of discovering the beauty, mystery and power of plants, and the variety of possible outcomes is simply enormous! By creating a momentary art piece, ikebana instills in us a positive attitude, a fortitude and an ability to concentrate deeply. This is one way to enrich our lifestyle. There are hundreds of Ikebana schools and styles. Ikeduende? Ikeduende is an amalgamation of the Japanese word ‘ike’ and the Spanish word ‘duende’. Ike, from ‘ikebana’, means living or life-giving, while duende is one of those words which defies explanation. Through practising ikebana, Tamayo believes one’s own duende can emerge, though it is the flowers who could be the audience here, listening or responding or refusing to us.

We are all homeless: The "WE ARE ALL HOMELESS" Project - an introduction This project began in 1993 when I started buying and collecting signs from the homeless. (More on that in the description of the art show HOME?) Over the past few years I have developed art work using the signs, which became focused while I was pursuing an MFA in Arts & Technology at UTDallas. In the Fall 2009 semester we were challenged to develop an art project that would be interventionist in nature, meaning that it would cause some interruption in our daily lives, which resulted in the development of WE ARE ALL HOMELESS. It began as a series of "flash mob happenings," where a few dozen people holding up authentic homeless signs converged on an intersection or other public location (2009-2010). The purpose of the project is to raise awareness about homelessness, and to change the preconceived ideas many people have about the homeless and their situations. Thanks and blessings for your interest in helping the homeless. Willie Baronet

Landscape – L’homme paysage – par Levi Van Veluw L’artiste Levi Van Veluw revisite l’art de peindre des paysages en le transposant en trois dimensions sur son propre visage. via Behance Outsider art Anna Zemánková, No title, 1960s Outsider art is art by self-taught or naïve art makers. Typically, those labeled as outsider artists have little or no contact with the mainstream art world or art institutions. In many cases, their work is discovered only after their deaths. The term outsider art was coined by art critic Roger Cardinal in 1972 as an English synonym for art brut (French: [aʁ bʁyt], "raw art" or "rough art"), a label created by French artist Jean Dubuffet to describe art created outside the boundaries of official culture; Dubuffet focused particularly on art by those on the outside of the established art scene, using as examples psychiatric hospital patients and children.[1][2] Outsider art has emerged as a successful art marketing category; an annual Outsider Art Fair[3] has taken place in New York since 1993, and there are at least two regularly published journals dedicated to the subject.
