Cigarette Girl, Go-Go Dancer, Punk Rocker -- Artist? | For Art's Sake-1 | Scoop.it

Hell, yes! Charlene Lanzel's all this and more.


Best known for her series of Pin-Up Girls, but Charlene's other gigs make you think of her as being the pinup model rather than the artist. Let the history entertain you -- develop a huge girly crush, like Slip Of A Girl -- but don't underestimate this fine artist!

Hussein Chalayan, un nouveau souffle pour la mythique maison Madeleine Vionnet

Hussein Chalayan, un nouveau souffle pour la mythique maison Madeleine Vionnet | For Art's Sake-1 | Scoop.it

"Hussein Chalayan a été nommé à la création de la collection demi couture de la maison Vionnet. Le styliste britannique d'origine chypriote turque présentera sa 1re collection dans le cadre des défilés haute couture de janvier à Paris.

[...]

Né en 1876, Madeleine Vionnet est morte à Paris en 1975. Qualifiée "d'architecte parmi les couturières", elle a été formée à Londres avec Kate Reilly, fournisseur de la famille royale britannique, avant de revenir en France, où elle a travaillé avec les soeurs Callot et plus tard avec Jacques Doucet. Elle a fondé sa maison de couture en 1912 mais a dû la fermer deux ans plus tard en raison de la Première Guerre mondiale. [...]"

David Lynch's Nightmarish World Comes To Life In Paintings

David Lynch's Nightmarish World Comes To Life In Paintings | For Art's Sake-1 | Scoop.it

"Naming," David Lynch's upcoming exhibition at Kayne Griffin Corcoran Gallery in Los Angeles, explores the tenuous relationship between text and image. While we often think of a thing and its name as opposite sides of the same coin, Lynch's work directs us to the instances that reveal a more slippery relation.

Beauty & the Brothel of Illustration: An Impractical Guide to Making Art | Essay & Paintings --- Stephen May

Beauty & the Brothel of Illustration: An Impractical Guide to Making Art | Essay & Paintings --- Stephen May | For Art's Sake-1 | Scoop.it

This is about how inadequate logic, reason, passion, intelligence and imagination are in art. It’s about how reasonable it is to accept that. It’s about how misleading and misguided the word creativity is. This essay is not meant as a spiritual work, but it necessarily enters territory that sounds spiritual.

Susan Robin Sorrell's curator insight, October 3, 2013 2:32 PM

I have entertained the idea of selling my smaller paintings on Ebay, but there was such a negative stigma from other artists that you are devaluing your artwork. But I have heard success stories too. Give this article a read and tell me what you think...and if you have a store on eBay, post your link. ;)

Lisa Bufano: Dancer/Shapeshifter

Lisa Bufano: Dancer/Shapeshifter | For Art's Sake-1 | Scoop.it

“I’m a shapeshifter… I explore the different forms my body can take using different mediums.” – Lisa Bufano. Photo by Gerhard Aba.


Lisa Bufano is a performance artist whose work incorporates elements of doll-making, animation, and dance. Bufano was a competitive gymnast as a child and a go-go dancer in college before she lost her lower legs and all her fingers due to a staphylococcus bacterial infection at the age of 21. Shortly after this occurred, Bufano went on to study stop-motion animation and sculpture at the School of the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston.

How much does gender influence the art world?

How much does gender influence the art world? | For Art's Sake-1 | Scoop.it

An exhibition showcasing six female abstract artists poses questions about the real impact of gender on output and perception in the art world.


...The exhibition raises two questions (amongst many) that I want to address briefly here. Is there anything specific to say about women and abstraction: does gender matter when art sheds all references except to its own processes and potentialities as colour, line, space, surface, rhythm and so forth or when it seeks to commune with abstract forces and effects we call nature?


And what do these specific and highly diverse artists in the show bring to the debate about the continuing relevance of abstraction in painting now?


...'Female artists need feminism like a hole in the head'


Yet Riley is also the artist who commented in the early 1970s, that women artists needed feminism - attention to gender issues - like they needed a hole in the head. Understandably she belongs to a generation of artists for whom modern art offered the wonderful opportunity to ‘be an artist’, simply and firmly engaged with artistic questions. Yet when the great American abstract painter Helen Frankenthaler died in 2011, the obituary writers repeated over and over again her disdain for feminists even while it was feminist writers who wrote some of the most interesting and appreciative analyses of her work, taking her much more seriously than the art historians who simply allowed her work only to be a ‘bridge between Pollock and what came after’.

Sonia Delaunay : Textile Artist

Sonia Delaunay : Textile Artist | For Art's Sake-1 | Scoop.it

When reading about the history of fiber art it seems to take on many elements. The history of fiber art incorporates craft, textile and design elements that are not usually explored in regular art history. The use of embroidery and clothing inspired artists such as Sonia Delaunay who had started off as a painter and found new inspirations when she shifted her medium from brush, canvas and oil paint to needle, thread and textile printing. In exploring Sonia’s textile and wearable art works I’d like to explore her success as a woman in the art world.

Artists too have their myths. The lies told to artists mirror the lies told to women. Be good enough, be pretty enough, and that guy or gallery will sweep you off your feet, to the picket-fenced land of generous collectors and two-and-a-half kids. But, make the first move, seize your destiny, and you’re a whore.
