  • Portrait of a Horse

    1 week ago @Stacey Mayer


    The tribes living from around the Salish Sea are creative, and inventive people. From turning a tall cedar tree, into a vertical totem pole that tells a story for generations, or changing ideas into software that runs the world; Seattle rain seems to encourage the composting of ideas, into concrete works of art, and technology.


    Seattleite Don Miles used the common-place materials of acrylic, and cement, and gave us something that could be colorful, durable, and flexible, a new material, useful in the creation of durable works of art, or the many ways that cement alone may be found. When I met Don, he was selling this amazing, powdered material, out of his garage in the Mount Baker neighborhood of Seattle. He'd measure it out like flour into buckets, weight it, place it in plastic buckets, seal it; then proceed to pour a milky, white liquid into gallon jugs, matched to the dry amount. 


    I was usually trailing along one of my little girls, who would explore his interesting piles of rocks, fascinated by the several different gravel sizes he had separated into neat, small mounds in his backyard. As I would anxiously call my daughters off the very top of the not-so-perfect-anymore, hills of rocks, he would hand me my purchase, help us into the car, and on we'd go home to create our first experiments in a new, Seattle invention. An acrylic plus cement, admixture.


    Don encouraged me to use this material to build my horses, and see what I could achieve. Many other artisans and sculptors were discovering the unique, hardy properties of his durable material as colorful sculptures, vessels, and surfaces.


    Soon thereafter, (maybe inspired by my toddler's frequent disruption of his organized rock piles,) Don's local material was soon made available in the commercial neighborhood of Ballard, at Salmon Bay Sand and Gravel. 


    Acrylic and cement, Milestone? is able to withstand time, and share an enduring image, for future generations along the Salish Sea.

    A NEW VISION FOR AMERICAS NEW INCLUSIVE MONUMENTS

    U.S. PROPOSED ANTI-SLAVERY MONUMENT SCULPTURE PROJECT- One of America?s first anti-slavery monuments is also in the works, a proposed steel monument by California sculptor Paul-Felix Montez, who has designed a pair of broken chains. It?s expected to face the Lincoln Memorial Reflecting Pool in Washington.
    ?Everywhere I looked, there were endless war monuments, but how many are for peace and how many stand for basic human rights?? asks the artist. ?That was my start of this effort.?

  • Facciamo che io sono.....

    11 months ago @Belinda Biancotti


    Comincia sempre per gioco e non parte quasi mai da me, ma da chi mi circonda.

    Per questo mi piace stare con le persone, mi completa e mi diverte lasciarmi coinvolgere dalla vita degli altri.

    Dal loro stare al mondo nasce l'idea per un racconto su tela ed è talmente intima la complicità che si crea da renderli partecipi in prima persona nella ricerca degli oggetti, dello scenario, della posa stessa.

    Non sono attori o modelli, sono bambini che giocano a ?facciamo che io sono...?

    L'allegoria della realtà, che alla fine emerge, è solo una frazione della personalità di quel preciso individuo che entra in sintonia con la mia.

    Giochiamo a fare i pirati, gli Dei, i personaggi di un libro.

  • Daniela Traverso

    Daniela Traverso indaga le inquietudini della post-modernità portando alle estreme conseguenze i cardini fondamentali che ?fanno da cerniera? alla nostra società. Mostrando il lato nascosto dietro alle apparenze, l?artista strappa le maschere che costringono la figura femminile nello stereotipo della muta bellezza per restituire voce e presenza al corpo, insieme di fisicità e simbolismo emotivo. Così la bocca diventa smisurata ferita, chiusa e riaperta da denti metallici, inserita fuori dai contorni e quasi giustapposta a proporzioni che sono costantemente sfalsate, sia dalle prospettive schiacciate sia dalla scelta di colori innaturali. Che si tratti di pittura o di fotografia, le tinte sono sempre esacerbate: acrilici tumefatti alla Lucien Freud o stampe su alluminio che rendono l?immagine brillante. Ci si trova di fronte all?anatomia essenziale eppure esagerata impiegata da Hajime Isayama nel ritrarre l?interiorità come parto spaventoso. Allo stesso tempo però ci si muove su un altro asse interpretativo, quello della rapidità. Sono le ?Blurred Faces? di Alice Baxter o le nudità sfocate nell?artwork dell?album ?Meds? dei Placebo; sono grida che danno l?idea del ritmo mentre i volti si scompongono perdendo e acquisendo particolari da assemblare in una sorta di segnaletica cubista, poliziesca ma anche ascientifica. È un approccio degno dei film d?avanguardia, laddove è l?ondeggiare dei contorni a farli risaltare sugli sfondi neutri di uno spazio desolante: la scelta del bianco e nero, i toni sporchi di un?ipotetica parete richiamano a un quotidiano universale. E viceversa la saturazione delle sequenze crea una metamorfosi kafkiana e glam in cui il Joker incontra Alice Cooper; l?allungamento entomologico simula la contemporaneità delle espressioni e i rossetti sbavati denunciano la violenza di un travestimento lacerato. (Testo critico di Elena Colombo).
