  • A Work in Progress

    1 month ago @Barbara Rowell


    Continuing with my ongoing work interrogating themes of identity, time and place as observed through markings on walls, I have added a new layer to this painting inspired by 'Impasse 453', a street in the Gemmayzeh district of Beirut.

    In 2015, I started with a very free sketch in charcoal and dry acrylic on a new piece of stretched canvas measuring 75 x 115 cm:



    In 2016 I worked over this in acrylic with a graphic representation of a section of the wall


    In 2017 abstracted forms have been layered over the work in thick and thin washes of oil paint


    installation view


    The history of the underpainting is preserved

  • ARTIST LAUNCHES VIRTUAL REALITY PEACE MUSEUM

    2 months ago @Paul-Felix Montez



    2016 Steven Paterson

    VR CIRCLE PUBLICATION NEWS:

    The United Nations invited the creator of a unique way for people to celebrate art & peace monuments and heroic world peacemakers with the latest AR and VR technology. On September 4, the United Nations invited peace walkway artist Paul-Felix Montez to speak at the U.N. in New York City for World Peace day.

    What is the Peace Walkway?

    The Peace Walkway project is a simple vision of locating one, mile-long peace art monument in 100 different locations (cities, towns, and parks, etc.) around the world. Each peace walkway Monument is one mile long made up of 250 different bronze plaques commemorating significant world heroic peacemakers - men and women whose courage and commitment to our greater humanity have changed our lives forever.

    The free global walkway app will use augmented reality (AR) and virtual reality (VR) offering full bios for each peacemaker and the ability for anyone at one walkway location to connect and chat to another person at any of the installed monuments in the world. Thus everyone using the app gets to converse with anyone from anyone in the world.

    How do the AR and VR apps work?

    Using the free Augmented Reality App, simply point it at any given plaque, and two things happen. First, an Augmented reality image of the famous Peacemaker will appear, click on that image and a full biographical timeline of the entire life of that peacemaker is yours to explore. As you explore the story, a symbol [VR] or virtual reality will be seen along the way.

    Click on that [VR] symbol, put on your virtual reality goggles such as Google cardboard and get the opportunity to view as if you were that famous peacemaker various moments and events through their eyes. From Martin Luther King ?s speech "I have a Dream" given in Washington D.C. to Mother Theresa?s daily caring for those in a leper colony, and all seen by you through their point of view.

  • Chronicles of an indie artist in the end of the world.

    2 months ago @Gabriela Farnell




       What motivates an independent artist? Not the money (selling the work is exceptional and if it happens, the values ??of the primary market are always minimal). Not recognition (not belonging to the system ensures not having access to popularly accepted means of dissemination and validation). Not a future of glory (there is no "success" or "future" on the outside). So? It is evident that the independent artist dedicates the life to the art for reasons unknown and incomprehensible for the majority.

     

         Borges says, quoting Carlyle, "All human work is despicable, but its execution is not." It is about doing, of the execution, of the creative process by the creation itself, independent of the result and of eventual benefits. Do. Just for the doing. Art is a constant present, a catch of time, an eternal in the meantime.

     



         The independent artist is probably so busy creating that he does not have time to pay attention to Mr. Market. And the market can´t forgive that indifference.
