Nude Art Modeling: I Take Off My Clothes for Money

Nude Art Modeling: I Take Off My Clothes for Money

My self is standing to attention, because it’s freezing. My feet are turning a plummy purple, and while 5 minutes ago I could still wiggle them and get that itchy-ootchy pins and needles sensation, at this point, I can no longer move them. I can’t even turn my head to look at them, because my […]

Busking Bumbershoot

Busking Bumbershoot

Oh, sweet Bumbershoot. Bumbershoot is a homegrown Seattle classic, a three-day summer arts and music festival encompassing all of Seattle Center (you know, where the Space Needle reigns supreme). I rocked out to Kings of Leon, nodded my head to Sage Francis, and got my groove on to Zap Mama. But the best part of the day […]

Alejandro Santiago’s “2501 Migrantes” in Oaxaca

Alejandro Santiago’s “2501 Migrantes” in Oaxaca

| February 25, 2022 | 0 Comments

Several years ago the Mexican artist Alejandro Santiago began sculpting 2500 not-quite-life-sized human figures out of clay. Hewn in part with a machete and daubed in the colors of peasants’ clothing, the crude but ingeniously expressive figures are lifelike both in their collectivity and their subdued individuality. They gaze at you in a way that many more […]

The Art of Sadness – Showcase

Everyone gets sad. We all are susceptible to negative thoughts and feelings sometimes. Sadness is a normal emotion that has the ability to make life more engaging. Some of the greatest art in the world was created because the artist was so entrenched in his emotions of sadness, that it bled on to a canvas […]

Tord boontje annabel. thumbnail Light, Color and Natures Play: Tord BoontjeSpring is in the not so far off distance — or at least that is what I tell myself to ward off rainy images of March — and with it come the pleasant reminders that the world is alive and beautiful: flowers, cherry blossoms, warmer […]

What is Art?

What is Art?

| February 19, 2022 | 0 Comments

What is art? Art, to me, is the appreciation of anything set aside from reality. Dictionary.com defines art as being something that is appealing or more than ordinary in significance. Art is the story of a culture. Whether the art topic is Michelangelo’s David or Colors by Joe Shmoe, it all symbolizes one-thing and that’s the […]

Art simply will not die

Art simply will not die

Commonly, people say Visual Arts and Visual Art sales since 1980 is similar to the flicker of a flame, waning and then strong, at best. This is because, statistically, yes, the arts are down, but this is only relative to multi-million dollar art sales taking place day after day. Like art itself, the market is […]

Waiiit a second…

Thought I would quickly share a very unique photography portfolio I ran across today. The artist’s name is Mark Jenkins, and the work is quite creative. Many of the pieces are some types of odd insertion into everyday life. I’m sure some of those shots would take all day to catch. Got to love a commitment […]

The Artist: Richard Learoyd The Show: Presences, at the Fraenkel Gallery, San Francisco May 5 – June 25, 2011 Both visually and psychologically revealing, the photographs of British artist Richard Learoyd probe the limits of image-capture. Learoyd’s subjects pose inside his camera: a specially designed camera obscura-type mechanism consisting of two small rooms. In one, the subject sits illuminated […]
