Karla Black

These every day elements seem to fit so casually into our lives. Could you picture these essentials into a piece of art? By now, most people reading this would probably imagine a tub of Vaseline casually held by Mona Lisa… and if you just imagined this, please feel free to backtrack and think again. We are on the topic of texture, malleability and childhood play, far, far away from brands and consumerism. Artist Karla Black toys with our toiletries in a profound psychological way. Many artists have intrinsic connections with their artworks. As a contemporary artist who has exhibited for more than a decade, Black has a ‘new’, refreshed vision of art. Black’s pieces are threaded with continuity.

There are two clear types of elements in her work; everyday materials and ‘common’ art supplies. Óscar Muñoz (artista) Collectors View. The finest Amsterdam Contemporary Art Collection ever.

What makes us human? I Work Like a Gardener: Joan Miró on Art, Motionless Movement, and the Proper Pace of Creative Labor. By Maria Popova “Art has something to do with the achievement of stillness in the midst of chaos,” Saul Bellow told an interviewer in 1966, “a stillness which characterizes prayer.”

Few artists have captured this stillness more movingly than the Spanish painter and sculptor Joan Miró (April 20, 1893–December 25, 1983), whose masterpieces upended the conventions of visual art by giving life to a new aesthetic of vibrant stillness. One late November afternoon in 1958, the French artist, author, and art critic Yvon Taillandier sat down with sixty-five-year-old Miró for a long conversation about the artist’s creative process and his philosophy on art. The result was Miró: I Work Like a Gardener (public library) — a beautiful bilingual volume in French and English, published as a limited edition of 75 copies in 1964.

“Be not deceived,” Epictetus writes in The Discourses, “every animal is attached to nothing so much as to its own interest.” Few things are more in our nature than our yearning for permanence.

Ula Einstein draws with fire on paper, cuts paper and threads it back together.

Upon investigation, Ula’s delicate textiles and works on paper are completely captivating. Many she calls, “drawings with fire.” Some of them are pre-cut and others appear to be simply burned, or burned and then gone back into with thread. The patience (and routine) it must take to burn the papers with that regularity, without things getting out of control, is wild. The below is hand cut rice paper. A close up of the above is below.

PARIS – For the longest time, science has assumed that in order to run, swim, or fly, animals and humans must exert pressure on the ground, water or air around them to project themselves forward.

But a study of jellyfish and eels published Tuesday says the premise is false — at least when it comes to certain swimming animals. Rather than propelling themselves by pushing water rearward, jellyfish and lampreys — a species of snake-like, jawless fish also known as lamprey eels — “pull” themselves forward by creating a region of low pressure in the water directly ahead of them.

“The low pressure is created on the ‘top’ of the jellyfish’s umbrella-shaped body, which is different from our previous understanding of their swimming dynamics that focused on the flow underneath the umbrella,” study co-author John Dabiri of the University of Stanford said. The finding, published in the journal Nature Communications, holds promise for designing much more energy-efficient submarines.
