:hbd Sir Renoir

Pierre-August Renoir was born in Limoges, Haute-Vienne, France, on February 25, 1841, the child of a working class family.

Renoir’s first encounter with painting dates from his childhood when he worked in a porcelain factory painting designs on bone china.

And as they say, the rest is history. Happy BIRTHday Renoir ~

:celebration vol.II – hbd sir Duchamp

Bicycle Wheel (1913)

“Art is either plagiarism or revolution.”

The second celebration we have here on this blog today is about d birthday of one of d best/ main/ leaders/ ARTISTS of d modern/ contemporary era Marcel Duchamp who actually was a French artist whose work is most often associated with the Dadaist and Surrealist movements.

Tu M’ (1918) – Duchamp’s last full-scale venture in oil painting, expressing the shortcomings of traditional oil on canvas painting.

All in all, the creative act is not performed by the artist alone.. the spectator brings the work in contact with the external world by deciphering and interpreting its inner qualifications and thus adds his contribution to the creative act.

If u are here on this blog u probably know about this Monsieur and just continue toasting with me for all this beautiful occasions. Sir Duchamp left a lot for d historians of art, they can analyze his signature with days/ months even years. His works are structural, easy going maybe but pretty hard in d concept. Full with messages, thinkery machines I can say. I use to stay hours in front of some of his works/ masterpieces.

Why Not Sneeze, Rrose Selavy? (1919)
Those “sugar cubes” are actually made of marble, making the whole thing surprisingly heavy. Anyone who lifted it would momentarily be forced to question either their expectation or their perception of the object’s weight.

“It’s not what you see that is art. Art is the gap.”

“Destruction is also creation.”

“My idea was to chose an object that wouldn’t attract me, either by its beauty or by its ugliness. To find a point of indifference in my looking at it, you see.”

“D’ailleurs, c’est toujours les autres qui meurent.
(Besides, it’s always other people who die).”

A Tehran Art University student looks at a painting by 20th century U.S. artist Jackson Pollock at Tehran’s Museum of Contemporary Art on June 19, 2010. Artists like Monet, Picasso and Warhol were considered revolutionary in their day, but their works were not much appreciated by the leaders of Iran’s Islamic revolution and many were kept out of view for decades. Now, one of the greatest collections of contemporary Western art — put together under a Western-leaning monarchy in pre-revolutionary Iran — is open to the public, with some works on display for the first time in more than 30 years.

:fast painting, with a lot of emotions, moves. .. deep expressions, war between d blue and d red. I don’t know maybe more then 10 times I enjoy his works in Pompidou Museum in France. I use to go there and enjoy d docs where is recorded Pollock and his process of creating, lots of conversations how he connect almost all o d elements that surround him  with expressing trough d brush with one single move. standing n a frond of his huge paintings it’s fantasy, maybe d best part of my life till now. He is considered a revolutionary painter and well known for his ‘drip’ paintings, that involved pouring paint onto large raw canvases on the floor. Pollock currently holds the title for the world’s most expensive painting ever sold, when David Geffen sold his “No.5, 1948” for $140 million through Sotheby’s in 2006.

In between u see pictures from his life, there will be in future more posts for his master works cause as I mention he is one of my influences not directly but with d philosophy and d messages that he shared. .. connect with nature,respect diversity and much more are pretty motivating for me. :HAPPY BIRTHDAY Pollock, Jackson Pollock!
