New Art Work Post - B

Hi, all we are going to do today is to try and load up the Art Work. Thinking of posting just one for the week and to keep everything simple and sharp. We might talk about it in the next posting but feel free to add your comments now.
I love this work especially because of its symmetry, look and name. It is simply titled Box and please take note of the word simply.

                                                         Box

We'll do the discussions later but feel free to post even now.

Rounding Up The Week And Previewing The Next.

hi,
This week we posted two Art Works; Anotherlifespace and Bigben. We talked about them and also talked about the Canvass as part of the Art  Work and The Art of Art Critique and some of the things it does to us.
I ran out of questions for The Interview so i don't think i will be continuing with it.
But next week is going to be interesting (though i don't yet have a clue what I'll be posting up). There will  be the usual interview segment concerning the particular Art Work, a bit on the Microsoft Paint program, and one or tow topical Art themes.
All in all, it would be interesting. See you most possibly on Monday.

NB we have now posted about three Art Works (City life, Anotherlifespace and Bigben) and it is gradually building up without showing any sign of letting up because the Art Works in the kitty are increasing.....

The Canvass as art

hi, the interview will continue another time. Today we want to look at the canvass as a part of the art in Loaf-art.
The canvass is Microsoft Paint program (Start/program/accessories/paint). In this case it is part of the art because it won't be loaf-art if it isn't. Every art work that we will be displaying here would be on the canvass so it is very well part of the art and since this is the case.
The limitation of the paint program works for it here because it means the artist has got to master those limitations so much so that he/she is able to produce an art work that is still meaningful.

                          Bigben

  (I wonder what your thoughts are on these...)             
                                   
                                                    Anotherlifespace


The Canvass is an integral part of the Art work and it is really fun if you decide to get into it(as you can see, i want to win converts here).  And art is such that everything involved in that art becomes part and parcel of it, accentuating the various inflections that individualistic interpretation brings (big words)

NB the interview might be concluded on Saturday.

The Interview Continues

I hope you liked the trick....i.e. did you even notice it? Well...nevermind.

What about Anotherlifespace...why the combination of three words?
                                                           Anotherlifespace


Each word on its own has a right to be in that piece..'Another' has full representation in that you can see that it is like another  galactic system or another collection of planets and worlds. This too gives the 'life' credence and credibility because another world implies other forms of Life. 'Space' too is well represented in the art work because it can be taken as meaning either Space (as in outer-space) or space as in distance between two objects. This is aside from the connection it has with bigben when it has to do with time. 

Do you believe that their is life in other...worlds?
If you call it worlds...then logic demands that their should be. The thing is we tend to paint life 'forms' by our own imaginations ans standards.

Care to elaborate on that?
Not really.

Your worlds...sorry, the art work.. the palnets seem to connect..?
That is the point...who says they shouldn't or why must they look like the things we already know....can i take a break.....talk to you later.
 

The Art Of Art Critique And The Interveiw

Hi,
The thing with art is that you can never really be short of words when it comes to interpreting it. This is why anyone can Critique art. It is just a matter of verbalizing your appreciation or otherwise of the art work.
And the really seriuos can recieve some form of education because the art of art critique educates the person doing it.
This is because some subconscious things takes place. Your sense of observation is brought into play when it comes to being the art critique. You tend to notice things the more you concentrate on the art work. Concentration is one of the things too that you will develop when you become the art critique. Then logic as it has to do with putting two and two together is another thing that will kick in the moment you start forming an opinion within you as it has to do with the art of art critique.
Another very important thing that is developed is your sense of opinion. That is, you tend to become more independent minded as listen to the views of others regarding that same art work and you from your own opinion.
The education is complete when you begin to subconsciously apply all these virtues you developed as an art critique into other areas of your life.

The Interview Begins
You posted some two interesting pieces this week...
Yes, Anotherlifespace and Bigben.

                                                             Anotherlifespace



                                                                          Bigben

very interesting names indeed....and interesting art work as well...
                

Tuesday, May 11, 2010

Let's start with why you chose to post two loaf-art work for the week....
No reason in particular..but in a way they are both connected. 

Are you saying that Anotherlifespace and Bigben are connected?
Well the names are.


How so?
They both have to do with time and time has to do with space.


Why the name Bigben?
Good question......
                                                                       Bigben
The beautiful thing about names is that it comes about due to multiple reasons. Sometime during its point of creation it really looked like Bigben. But aside from that, the art is still all about space and filling up that space with colour. It has no emptiness..... this is time in its essence because time connotes a lack of emptiness and a period that is filled with one thing or the other.


But someone might look at it and think to call it something else?
True and that is the beauty of art...not image but perception. It is actually your perception that educates you and not the presentation, or image or what you are shown.


Why the emphasis on primary colours?
For this piece...contrast.

Next on schedule

hi, the next thing that will be coming up will be my world famous interview...it's going to be 'explosive' and it will be on the 12th (by then i would have found out why i named that piece of art Bigben). See you then.

The Art of Art Critique

Thank God its Monday!
And we are starting off with looking at how to critique art. This is to prepare you for the work you guys are about to do concerning the two art posts for the week (still haven't found a reason yet for naming that one Bigben). So i wold like to prepare your mind so that you will as they say tamper Justice with Mercy.
Now don't take anything i tell you serious here, especially as it has to do with becoming an art Critique or how to do it properly.
First of all, we'll divide it into two;the academic and the appreciative. The former has to do with you being the editor of Art for Times or you holding in chair in one university. This is where you look at a piece or art and you define it with references to the school it belongs, the era and time, the style etc To know this you will need a degree in the arts.
So let's move to the second. In this case, all you need to to be observant and inquisitive. Ask  the why, who , and what questions. Get the answer from the artist, from others and most importantly, create your own answers.
We would stop here for now.

Two new Paintart

They have unique names; Anotherlifespace and bigben. Bigben is not that unique for a name but the thing is looking at it now i just can't place why i called it bigben. I will get recall it...eventually.
                                                                  Anotherlifespace

Here is the second.

                                                                         Bigben

Now there are lots of things to say about these two and hopefully we'll be covering them this week.
 

NEW WEEK!

This is a new week and i will be posting two Paint art. The idea is to post them today and talk about them during the week.
The imaginary interview might also continue this week but the questions will relate more to the newly posted art.
We are also going to be looking at some things about art critique.
Hope you won't be bored to death.

The interview continues


City-life


How long have you being into this art form?
for as long as have stayed in front of the computer willing myself to work. It was borne out of escapism really. But at some point it became a hobby and a rather enjoyable one i must say.

Do you do abstracts as well?
They are mostly absentminded gibbirish. Paint (the program) doesn't really hold up well as a pencil or brush....the mouse is not that steady and at times I've used my finger tips on the laptop. So it is mainly abstract.

How large is your collection now?
it is increasing by the week and as long as i have the drive for this blog I'll continue to publish them through it.

the interview might end here.

City Life



I forgot to tell you the title of this piece. I titled it City Life.
The reason is not so far fetched with the street lamps and littered street.
And more than that it reflects a kind of decay that comes with the city. A decay that the authorities are constantly battling against.
It is as if a sentence of death was passed on the city the minute it was born and even though people keep on flooding in it still needs to be permanently kept in the emergency ward where issues like security, health, water, over crowding, litter are constantly battling the city.

Let's not go in too deep, here is an imaginary interview i held over this 'masterpiece'.


How did you come about this form of art?
well like i said before is was through loafing about with the system, i even call it loaf-art.

Are you saying you were just toying around with a computer program and City Life came about?

No i said that is how the art came about but in a way too City Life was not deliberate. I started without knowing how it would end or what i was going to do but as it started taking shape i kind of followed it through and that is how City Life came to be.

The interview will continue later but you are free to comment and critique the art. We will talk more on how you can go about this if you don't have a clue later. In fact let's forget about that....just say what you think.
i will be posting other loaf-art on this blog and all of them were done with Paint (the program you will find under Accessories from the start/programs tab).

hi, this blog is about my loafing hours in front of the computer. This is how the story goes.....one day i was in front of the computer doing nothing but just dabbling around. Then i found myself in the Paint program. I started toying with it and it suddenly began to take shape. This was how my very own art was formed. And one of the artwork is what i have just published.
