Woven Masterpieces: Aubusson Fine Art Tapestries

Posted: November 03, 2014 09:25 Last Updated: | Bill Rau

From the 13th century, tapestry making was a flourishing art in France. At a time when the upper echelon of society resided in large, expansive estates, tapestries were us...


Ed Ruscha: Understanding His Words

Posted: August 01, 2014 10:29 Last Updated: | Kenny Ackerman

Pop Art was one of the defining modern movements of the 1950s and 1960s. The driving force is that anything can be art. There is no right and wrong, no high and low culture. In fact, modern culture and advertisements were embraced. Some of the most recognizable features of Pop Art is the isolation of common objects and images. Warhol’s paintings of soup cans and Lichtenstein lifting comic panels out of context came to define this movement. In the late 50s, Artist Ed Ruscha took another approach.  He examined words. Ruscha once commented that he had appreciation for misspellings ...

Gun Deck Cutaways -A Decorative and Definitive Art Form

Posted: April 30, 2014 11:41 Last Updated: | Rex Stewart

It is not surprising that this subject matter has not been recognized in the arts. However, it is a subject that warrants appreciation for its unique form of symmetry and balance when being viewed as a concept. Fine art is anything that is beyond the ordinary; a work which holds unprecedented merit at its finest level -regardless of medium. Money, nor an expert's opinion, cannot control it. What's factual is fine art is defined as "a form"..."a sculpture"...and/or "decorative piece". I can be further said by notables as "a knowledge made efficient by skill" (Genung) or "the expression o...

Marlene Dumas: Making the Familiar Unfamiliar

Posted: November 15, 2013 10:53 Last Updated: | Kenny Ackerman

Some portraits represent how the subject appears and others invoke the inner character. Marlene Dumas chooses a different path. The figures are cold and flat. They stand plainly against a void, most have an unreadable expression. It evokes ideas of atrophy and decay. These portraits are states of mind, larger ideas of society in human form. Marlene Dumas has commented that she does not feel as if someone can be judged by their appearance nor does she feel comfortable having her art reduced to theme or plot. Her inspiration is from the image itself. Polaroids, magazine ads, drowning vict...
