Wim Wenders: Painter, Filmmaker, Photographer

Wim Wenders: Painter, Filmmaker, Photographer | Creatives at Home on the Internet | Scoop.it
How does a painter at heart end up becoming one of the world’s most admired filmmakers? In this personal interview, German Wim Wenders tells us the story of his transition from painter to filmmaker to photographer.
Judith van Praag's insight:

Wim Wenders speaks for himself, and for art as the inspiration for film making, and I would add, any other creative expression.

Judith van Praag's insight:

Rather than highlighting an artist's website, we're looking at HyperAllergic - Sensitive to Art and its Discontents. I've had people ask me about my Twitter bio.

What's Arts-dependent?

So here, we've got Egon Schiele and when you're done with this article, peruse the rest of the website, a good place to linger.

Spring Cleaning | Estate Planning for Artists (with image, tweets) · dutchessabroad

How to prepare for the future: taking care of your, or others' artwork and loved ones.
Judith van Praag's insight:

Check it out. There's a "will" and "no will" section to peruse. Very helpful. A few years ago I attended a worthwhile panel discussion organized by Seattle's ArtistTrust, on taking care of your art, assets and heirs.

 

Who wants to think about death and dying? 

 

Think of preparation as cleaning up your studio. Imagine what people will see if you don't do that. And think about what you want them to do with your work. Think about your loved ones.

 

Think before you leap into the great unknown, you never know when that might be. Start early, start soon. Think of it as Spring cleaning.

Yes, I can download an image, but I prefer not to do this.

Judith van Praag's insight:

Before landing on the Poets and Artists dot com site I looked at a Blurb book or rather the magazine format published by PA (I think). The magazine was very well designed, and with 60 pages for $18.95 (I think) not a bad buy at all. So here we are, on a site with several different publications, and all about Poets and Artists. 

Got to love that!

Just fell in love with the isle of Hydra, Greece. A place to go to, return or stay and never leave. Quite a few artists and writers have settled in this place without cars or motor bikes. Slow down and paint or write, play guitar, take in the water, the sky, the rooftops, donkeys and folks. Michael Lawrence bookmarks this place in vibrant colors.

Today I had a meeting at the Audubon Center in Seward Park, Seattle. While waiting I looked around in the center's store and gallery and was taken by Heidi Randall's bird collages.

5 Reasons Why Artists Need Social Media & Eye Opening Stats to Back It Up! - Fine Art Tips With Lori McNee

5 Reasons Why Artists Need Social Media & Eye Opening Stats to Back It Up! - Fine Art Tips With Lori McNee | Creatives at Home on the Internet | Scoop.it
Judith van Praag's insight:

Decades ago, long before the Internet was accessible to all of us, I bought a book, a big tome of a book titled: The Business of Art. I lent the book to the wife of my accountant, who taught Business Administration at the University of Utrecht, that plus an anniversary publication about the small department store called Metz. I never saw either book again, the recipient thought they were gifts, not loans.

 

No problem, most all information can be found Online. Here you have it, the reason for expending your business of Art to the Internet, spelled out by Lori Mcnee.


Do I agree?


My thoughts on that could make up another post all together. Let's say Facebook Pages work when you really have something to sell and a budget to advertise or boost your posts. Otherwise they remain in obscurity. Same may be true for other platforms as well. They may be overrated, but once in a while you may make a sale thanks to your followers or their followers. And if you weren't Online, you most likely wouldn't have found those exact same buyers on your path. But perhaps you wouldn't need them, because your gallery owner would be doing all the serious business in the "back room", the way it used to be, and probably still is done. Still, I love the connective tissue the Internet because once you start responding and getting responses. 

 

Give it a try. 

 

I just made a sale on RedBubble, totally unexpected, and thrilling, even if I'll get less than five bucks. Hey, if all my Twitter followers would buy a phone cover with my art work, I'd make a pretty buck.

On another note, I'd like to present a workshop costume design or wearable art at this studio. Did you hear that?

Flickr, Facebook and Instagram: Are we fully aware of our photo rights?

Flickr, Facebook and Instagram: Are we fully aware of our photo rights? | Creatives at Home on the Internet | Scoop.it
Thanks to mobile phones, everyone has become a photographer. But has our relationship with the images we capture altered thanks to technology? And are we fully aware of our rights when posting our photos to social networks?
Judith van Praag's insight:

Olivier Laurent: 

"While some users may not be fully aware of their rights, he said Facebook and Instagram should make things clearer. Facebook, for instance, states that its members own all of the content they post on the site, but, as he points out, Facebook is automatically granted a licence to display and distribute the image."

 

Prof Murray:

"By placing your picture on Facebook, you agree contractually that they hold a licence – at no cost to them – to distribute your picture globally and that Facebook may transfer this licence to others if necessary.

"Most interestingly, they say that if you delete your content – or even your account – this licence allows them to continue to share your picture if others have shared it and have not deleted it. This is a powerful set of rights that most users never read or if they do don’t think about."

Chromatism

Chromatism: The work of Ned May
Judith van Praag's insight:

This post is the result of collaboration and connectivity. 

Last night I attended a reading by Jack Remick at the University Bookstore in Seattle. An outsider to a close knit group, I enjoyed the fabric of connectivity between those present and all involved with Jack's work. Elements of the reading linger, and looking at the cover of Satori, a book of poems, I see how fitting the folding and unfolding of the material, both literal and tactile as in textile art is for the cover art. Congratulations to Jack and Helen Remick on their work and partnership, impressive and touching to hear and see such commitment to art and relationships.
Thanks to my interest in the source of the cover art on Jack's book of poetry I visited his wife Helen's website to discover her background in Mathematics and love of stairwells. Enter Chromatism "a discipline that lies at the confluence of mathematics and art."

Artist/ Writer Aafke Steenhuis Combines Images and Words | Creatives at Home on the Internet | Scoop.it
Judith van Praag's insight:

We attended the same high school in Groningen, she nine years ahead of me, same timeframe as my ex-husband.

While looking at her website I'm impressed by the number of publication from her hand.

Proof of a productive life, all adventures and convictions made into books. That's inspirational to me. Someone to keep in mind, work to keep an eye on. 

 

Always pay attention to good examples, to people whose work speaks to you, folks whose words resonate, whose imagery hits a nerve.

Artwork and life of Moshe Rynecki (1881-1943). Jewish-Polish painter from Warsaw, Poland. Painted Jewish community in 1920s-1930s and Warsaw Ghetto.

You bet!
Moshe Rynecki's great-granddaughter Elizabeth has created an online memorial for her great grandfather, and is working hard at tracing a total of 800 paintings, given to non-Jews in safe-keeping during WWII. 


Moshe Rynecki is at Home on the Internet.
