ok, so i seriously need some advice. im planning on buying an original Owen piece. It will most likely be oil on canvas. how do i take care of it? should i not display it? should i just get a print? what about light. incandescent, fluorescent, sun light?

Oil on canvas is one of the easier media to maintain, much easier than prints. Over time, temperature/humidity, exposure to UV light and pollutants are the primary concerns in taking care of most art. But if you're just worried about the painting lasting for your lifetime, you don't need to do too much.

To get technical, the ideal conditions for most art are about 50% relative humidity, 70 degrees, total air filtration (no exterior pollutants), no light, no exposure to human pollutants (exhaled CO2, skin oils, etc).

Obviously, creating an ideal situation for art would mean that no one would ever get to actually enjoy the art, so it's a matter of finding a balance between taking care of the art and accessibility. If you do get a print, I recommend framing it under UV-protective glass, which will help a lot. For most art, an easy thing to do is to hang it away from direct sunlight. And pay a good framer and specify you want archival materials -- cheap framers often use all sorts of corrosive adhesives and matting when framing a piece for hanging.

Of all the stupid things you've said on here, samnco, those sentences may be your most vapid yet. To claim that the judgment of art is purely subjective in nature merely tells the world that you don't know what the fuck you are talking about. Your friend Lina is a hamfisted hack.

I'm saying different people appreciate different things. Ok, her works is not brilliant. But she is young. You cannot deny that she has talent. She is young and just going to school for art.
Im no art snob, I honestly dont know shit and I have zero artistic ability, I was just sending pictures from my phone to my photobucket account and thought I would post them in the art thread. You dont have to like it, you also dont have to be completely rude about it either. I think especially the pot leaf one is pretty, and pleasing to the eye. I'm not a real artist or critic for that matter but i think they are neat.

I'm not sure if this should go in the art thread or upcoming shows thread or noise music thread or otherwise, but the lineup for Performa 09 (http://performa-arts.org/) (NYC, November 1-22) is pretty fantastic.

I just got tickets for "A Fantastic World Superimposed on Reality: A Select History of Experimental Music" curated by Mike Kelley at the teeny tiny Gramercy Theater, with Thurston Moore and Ryan Sawyer, Destroy All Monsters, Arto Lindsay, Tony Conrad, Genesis Breyer P-Orridge, and other awesomeness. Apparently they're going to be performing classics by John Cage, Fluxus, Fred Frith and Max Neuhaus, as well as new works.

By Michael Inbar

Kieron Williamson turns 8 today, a benchmark to be celebrated with family and friends. But outside of his family circle in the tiny British market town of Holt, the art world is celebrating Kieron’s startling proficiency with water colors, pastels and oils.
London’s Daily Mail dubbed Kieron “Mini Monet” after Kieron raked in $235,804 (150,000 British pounds) at a gallery show in his hometown, where all 33 of the works exhibited sold in under a half hour.
Adrian Hill, co-owner of the Picturecraft Gallery in Holt where the sale was conducted, says the name Picasso springs to mind when it comes to the artistic prodigy. “He is red-hot,” Hill told the Daily Mail. “I believe the last child artist in this bracket was Picasso. And Kieron is getting better and better and better. He has a very mature hand and has mastered certain techniques at an early stage which some artists would take years to perfect.”

Sudden inspiration at 5
Kieron’s folks Keith and Michelle say in most respects, Kieron is your typical youth: He enjoys swimming and fishing and playing computer games, and loves nothing so much as kicking a soccer ball around with his schoolmates.

And when it comes to his artistic bent, Michelle Williamson told NBC News that for years, Kieron also drew like any other young child. “We used to have to draw dinosaurs for him to color in.”

That all changed on a family vacation to Devon and Cornwall in May 2008. Inspired by the scenery, he asked his parents for paper so he could copy what he saw.
“First pictures that he did were what any 5-year-old would do,” Michelle told NBC. “It was the time, and level of concentration that he put into doing it; that was the turning point. It was like a switch. We never thought he would continue drawing after the holiday. He just improved.”

Kieron improved so much, so quickly the family enrolled him in art classes, and his talent grew exponentially. Art experts began praising his work, saying Kieron’s atmospheric paintings showed the perspective, shadow and reflections of a master.
Flying off the walls
The first sign something seriously big was afoot came last summer, when Kieron first exhibited his art at the Picturecraft Gallery. He earned $22,338 (14,000 British pounds) for 19 of his paintings.
In December, Kieron had his second exhibition at the gallery: it expected to show his paintings for a month, but each and every work was snapped up within 15 minutes of the gallery opening. The paintings, which netted $27,125 (17,000 British pounds), flew off the gallery walls so fast that Kieron’s mom didn’t even get a chance to view the exhibition.

By the time last week’s third exhibit opened, Kieron was a full-fledged phenomenon. Buyers from as far away as New York City and South Africa came for the sale; a couple from Philadelphia camped out for two days outside the gallery for the chance to snatch up one of his works.
“The overwhelming sense of wonder is so many people have traveled to see this young man’s paintings,” gallery co-owner Hill said. “There’s no one painting that’s as young as Kieron is.”

Mom Michelle told NBC she suspects art buyers are trying to get in on the next big thing. “I think there’s a mixture of people who have gotten backgrounds in investments and do it as purely a speculative thing … a majority of people are just taken aback that he can produce nice paintings given his age.”

Michelle Williamson added that some 2,000 people are on waiting lists for the chance to buy Kieron’s work. And at the rate he paints, he may be able to satisfy them all; as prolific as he is proficient, Kieron sometimes completes as many as six works in a single week.

While the Williamson family loves art — dad Keith is an art dealer and they have their own collection hanging in their home — Kieron’s folks are still sometimes left scratching their heads over their son’s talent. He seems to especially love to paint coastal scenes and rural landscapes.

“We often think about why Kieron has chosen art in this way, and I think it’s because we live in a top-floor flat and we have no garden or outside space,” Michelle told the Daily Mail. “So perhaps he’s had to create his own scenery.”
Mom may be onto something. Young Kieron told the paper, “I like painting because it’s fun and inspiring. It makes me think of places I can’t see.”
Kieron’s mother bristles at any suggestion they are artistic stage parents: She insists Kieron paints only when he wants to, with no prodding from her or father Keith. And besides, Kieron is feisty.

“You couldn’t get him to do anything he doesn’t want to do,” Michelle told NBC. “It’s quite a learning curve for me and Keith because we’re not artists. We can’t get inside his head.”

Young Kieron adds, “Painting is my favorite hobby — but I like football as well.”

Just came back from the Getty yesterday, the Gérôme exhibit was absolutely enthralling. I knew some of his major works from various classes, but some of his portraiture and scenes were outstanding. It's not on at the Getty for much longer, but I definitely recommend seeking it out even if you have merely a passing interest in art. The Black Poet and O Pti Cien were by far my favorites.

The Black Poet, 1888

I'm pretty psyched about the fact that Kara Walker is collaborating with Dan Bejar for the new Destroyer album (http://www.mergerecords.com/blog/2010/10/destroyer-announces-kaputt/). If Bejar is smart, he'll have Walker do the album art.

Name drop: Bejar used to live in my cousin's building (Vancouver), and I frequently ran into him in the diner downstairs. He's much nicer than your typical New Pornographers concert would indicate.

And, this hardly even counts as art. More as doodling perhaps. But yesterday at work I turned a series of large printed numbers into envelopes. The printed numbers were part of a work project that was the bane of my existence for most of the spring semester, so I thought it only appropriate that I recycled them into something happier.

I went to Metropolis II at LACMA today and was not impressed. It was more interesting looking at the architecture and trying to figure out what the different buildings could be (a hotel, the projects, etc) before the cars started moving. I think it fell short of it's potential. The element of light would have made the metaphor even more powerful. I don't know how more complex that would make the installation to make, but it would have made it soooooo much cooler. Otherwise it was just a matchbox track on crack.

yesterday IFA and i went to the phoenix art museum. on wednesday's, it's a voluntary donation day. i donated $5 and had dinner at the cafe. i've been wanting to check out the frank lloyd wright exhibit and the arizona centennial exhibit. the frank lloyd wright exhibit was beautiful. they had many of his sketches, some of unbuilt projects. there were also models. they had short films as well, but i didn't watch any.

the drawings had so much detail. and i LOVE his font. some of them were in colour and looked like works of art. it's sad how many unbuilt projects there were, one was destroyed too. i knew FLW lived here, but i didn't realize how many houses he built here. i'd love to see them; i should research if they are open to the public.

one of my favourites was a drawing of a "living city" concept from 1958. they had these little flying pods in them.

of course the falling water was cool:

http://www.delmars.com/wright/falldraw.jpg

he had a great sketch of an early 1900s building with horses & carriages. it was in NY, but was demolished. it was the first building with air conditioning. i can't find a sketch though.

they also had a giant model and sketches of his proposed arizona state capital building. SO wish that would have come to life.

http://artnectar.com/wp-content/uploads/2012/01/frank_lloyd_wright_arizona_state_capital_oasis.png

the nighttime sketches were beautiful.

we spent so much time in there and i was so tired, i couldn't make it to the arizona centennial exhibit, so we're going again next week. the fashion exhibit is always cool too.

What were you hoping for in the painting? I watched it with no sound and visually it's intriguing. A- :thu

Thanks! I was hoping more of l his face like falling apart, warping and sagging. Shes drawn some really crazy illustrations so i thought she would do that but she got mixed up in thinking that i really wanted a painting and used paint. I don't think shes that conferrable using that medium for the crazy stuff she usually draws(shes the same artist that I posted at the beginning of this page) so the portrait turned out a bit tame for what she can really do.

'Orange' painting sells for $86.9 mil. (http://www.google.com/hostednews/afp/article/ALeqM5hdRxJgop7ArnKVHuuP7hyqrEw3qg?docId=CNG.bfa9a ba1959412efbfa0a5e29b603293.a1)

NEW YORK — A sunset-colored painting by Mark Rothko became the world's most expensive contemporary art work when it fetched $86.9 million in a stunningly lucrative auction at Christie's in New York.
"Orange, red, yellow" was as hot on the Christie's block as the colors on the bold, large-scale abstract canvas. A thicket of hands shot up to catch the attention of auctioneer Christopher Burge, bids leaping in increments of a million, sometimes two million dollars.
The hammer finally fell at a hair under $87 million, including final commission, breaking both the previous record for Rothko's most expensive work of $72.84 million and the record for any contemporary work of art at auction, Christie's said.
Collectors were in full cry all evening, knocking 14 artists' records down and repeatedly meeting or exceeding pre-sale high estimates.
Total takings of $388.5 million were the highest ever for a contemporary art auction, a record last set in 2007, Christie's said.
Among the other stars was the spectacular "FC1" by Yves Klein, which depicts the X-ray-like outlines of two nude models captured on canvas through a mixture of paint, water and flames.
It had been estimated to fetch up to $40 million. Although the hammer came down at the relatively flat $36.5 million, including commission, that smashed Klein's previous $23.6 million record.
One of the most breathless bidding wars was for Gerhard Richter's "Abstraktes Bild," which sold for $21.8 million, easily beyond the $18 million high estimate, and also a record for the artist.
Burge was at his best, cajoling, humoring and squeezing the super-wealthy players for every spare million.
"Absolutely not," he scoffed, when one bidder suggested a modest increase of just $50,000.
"No more messing around now," he chided playfully, as the price headed north from $16 million.
One of the most original, if fragile, works of the night, a huge candle in the form of an over-sized wax sculpture of art collector Peter Brant, kicked off the night with a winning bid of $1.3 million, beating the pre-sale high estimate.
The sculpture is designed to be lit and allowed to melt. But the buyer needn't worry: included in the price is the right to order more of the giant candles from the same mold.
The art world has certainly recovered from its own meltdown during the 2008 financial markets crash.
Last week, the only privately owned version of Edvard Munch's "The Scream" -- one of the most recognizable paintings in history -- set an overall world record for any work sold at public auction when it fetched $119.9 million at Sotheby's in New York.
Sotheby's holds its rival contemporary auction on Wednesday.
Highlights there will include Pop Art master Roy Lichtenstein's "Sleeping Girl," estimated at $30 million to $40 million.

Yea I thought the camera work at the beginning was really cheesy. As for the story ,yeah there wasn't much of one but hey its a music video so thats not too surprising.

Going along with the no story structure, I recently finished adding sound to footage I've had lying around for a while. I shot it on 16mm film around november last year. I was only given 100 feet to work with so instead of a story I tried to do something else and just fuck around visually and essentially just experiment. Play it really loud. Ohh yeah and full screen it.
