Ekphrasis - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Ekphrasis or ecphrasis is the graphic, often dramatic, description of a visual work of art. In ancient times it referred to a description of any thing, person, or experience. The word comes from the Greek ek and phrasis, 'out' and 'speak' respectively, verb ekphrazein, to proclaim or call an inanimate object by name.

Ekphrasis has been considered generally to be a rhetorical device in which one medium of art tries to relate to another medium by defining and describing its essence and form, and in doing so, relate more directly to the audience, through its illuminative liveliness. A descriptive work of prose or poetry, a film, or even a photograph may thus highlight through its rhetorical vividness what is happening, or what is shown in, say, any of the visual arts, and in doing so, may enhance the original art and so take on a life of its own through its brilliant description. One example is a painting of a sculpture: the painting is "telling the story of" the sculpture, and so becoming a storyteller, as well as a story (work of art) itself. Virtually any type of artistic media may be the actor of, or subject of ekphrasis. One may not always be able, for example, to make an accurate sculpture of a book to retell the story in an authentic way; yet if it's the spirit of the book that we are more concerned about, it certainly can be conveyed by virtually any medium and thereby enhance the artistic impact of the original book through synergy.

In this way, a painting may represent a sculpture, and vice versa; a poem portray a picture; a sculpture depict a heroine of a novel; in fact, given the right circumstances, any art may describe any other art, especially if a rhetorical element, standing for the sentiments of the artist when she/he created her/his work, is present. For instance, the distorted faces in a crowd in a painting depicting an original work of art, a sullen countenance on the face of a sculpture representing a historical figure, or a film showing particularly dark aspects of neo-Gothic architecture, are all examples of ekphrasis.

Pierre Soulages | Soulages 21st century
01 Mar 2013 - 16 Jun 2013

The exhibition entitled Soulages 21st century, created by the Academy of France in Rome-Villa Medici with the Musée des Beaux-Arts in Lyon, shows like this teacher, considered the more representative French abstract art and recognized internationally since the late ' 40 onwards, is now an artist fully "contemporary".
More than 92 years, he continues to investigate in depth the possibilities of abstract painting, exploring the new ways with a meticulous art who has forged since the beginning of its activity.

olivercloke's insight:

This is a fantastic artist that is pushing the boundries of what is considered artistic prcatice. She demonstrates a playful insight into what making art means and the relationship to the veiwer.
