    Elements of Nature | Ruth Maude || Hope Springs Eternal | Tracy ThomsonOn Now atPropeller Art Gallery, Toronto | https://lnkd.in/gbaXDZqrRuth Maude - In this exhibition, the four elements of nature (earth, water, air, and fire) are represented. This body of work is a testament to the beauty and harmony found in the natural world. It explores texture, colour, and form—guided by the sculptural qualities inherent in wax.I’ve created works that are at once painting and sculpture—pushing the limits of the medium to create depth and dimension while using colour and patterning to emphasize the brushstrokes.Encaustic is itself a natural medium; bees make the wax and damar resin is harvested from trees. Fire is part of the encaustic painting process. The encaustic vessels hold gifts of nature pocketed on walks.Tracy Thomson - My feeling is that the beauty of any art form is in the ability to transport you from this place in time, to another. To experience in a work of art, an environment that allows you to feel and sense the vastness of this unfamiliar place, as though you’ve already lived it, breathed it, heard it, felt it.That, to me, is heaven on earth.In every piece I create, I chase after that experience.I’ve no desire to replicate what exists right in front of me, it’s already there.I need to invent new worlds that transcend reality as we know it. Worlds where organic life and beings are regenerated into something “other”.Continuum.The enchanted mysteries of what may lie ahead.The uncertain treachery of such places…this is the stuff that fuels me.

    From our special exhibition “Mirror of the World - Spotlights on Seascapes from three Centuries”:Attributed to Wouter Knijff (c. 1606-1694), Boats at a Jetty, c. 1640, oil on wood - Internationales Maritimes Museum Hamburg, inv. no. K-849The liberality in the Netherlands has a great impact on the subjects depicted in the visual arts. In the rest of Europe, there is a stricter canon of images, i.e. an idea of what is considered worthy of depiction. In Holland, however, people freed themselves from these guidelines early on, and so sometimes vulgar pictorial themes such as drunkenness and prostitution were put on canvas. The rendering of these subjects can also be subtle, as in this painting: the contemplative-looking river scene isflanked on the left by two men who are outside a tavern.One of them is taking a large sip of beer. He stands in stark contrast to the noble patrons who are heading for the shore. Landscape paintings like this are popular in the 17th century because they are infused with a sense of humour and appeal to those prospective buyers who may not have experienced a high level of education, but are still able to decode the narrative.The attribution of this painting to the painter and art dealer Wouter Knijff is based on stylistic similarities. Only close observation reveals the signature „VG“, which refers to the famous landscape painter Jan van Goyen (1596-1656). However, since the latter painted more tonally, with distinctly reduced colour accents, and the architecture in less detail, it can be ruled out that it comes from the hand of the great master. Already during Van Goyen‘s lifetime, imitations appeared, as they fetched high prices on the market. There is a second version, similar except for a few differences, which is attributed to Gillis Peeters the Elder (1612-1653). That painting bears the false signature „VGoyen 1644“.Read the full, bilingual booklet of the exhibition athttps://lnkd.in/e5b-HKUEText by curator Patrick Rivière.#artgallery #painting #dutch #artwork #maritime #museum #hamburg #arthistory

    GEORGES SEURATParis 1859-1891 ParisUne baignade à Asnières, 1884Oil on canvas, 201 x 300 cmPurchase, 1924NG3908Text by Nicolas Penny, THE EDITOR'S REVIEWNicholas PennyTHIS IS THE ONLY WORK of this edition that always leaves me with mixed emotions. It is much easier to admire than to appreciate and the pleasure it gives me is limited to the left side, as illustrated on the opposite page. Seurat wanted to give the painting the authority of modern science, especially in the representation of light, and to adopt a whole series of other academic disciplines into his art. He himself is considered a hero in the genealogy of modern art and this hinders an objective evaluation of his actual success. His drawings are of an enchanting beauty, as are some of his landscapes, especially those with a twilight character, while his figures, static like the four portrayed here at rest in various positions, which wittily accompany each other to the corners of the bank or the curve of a sail and to each other as in a complex rhyme scheme, are of greateffect in setting up a landscape. But the large figure that Seraut places in the center not only sweeps away the spatial scheme, but attributes superiority to an inert, even insipid, even depressed individual.Previous attempts to concentrate on the essential elements of a painting (as in Poussin) were advanced in the name of eloquence and clarity of action. This apotheosis of the inarticulate seems instead more appropriate to satire.

    𝗛𝗮𝗿𝗺𝗼𝗻𝘆 𝗶𝗻 𝗖𝗵𝗮𝗼𝘀 𝟬𝟲Drawing inspiration from the natural world, architectural precision, and human emotion, this piece is a symphony of contrasts. The artist was inspired by the tumultuous yet harmonious interplay of opposing forces in nature. The artwork speaks to the inner turmoil and peace that coexist within every individual. It’s a visual representation of the constant battle and balance between our inner demons and angels.The artist, through intricate geometric patterns and a harmonious blend of warm tones, seeks to communicate the beautiful complexity of human existence. The painting is a dance between order and chaos, light and dark, showcasing the multifaceted nature of life.#GeometricArt, #WarmTones, #HumanExistence, #InnerTurmoil, #ArchitecturalPrecision, #EmotionalJourney, #ArtCollectors, #ModernArtwork, #InspirationalArt, #BalanceInChaos, #LightAndDarkInterplay, #SoulfulCreation

    The Power of Art #106 Chris Christophorou Freedom & LimitationShapes, lines, and dribbles in variations of hues are the distinct marks in Chris Christophorou’s paintings.Interweaving the freedom and limitation of the materials he uses permits him to explore their attributes and interplays; this is a significant characteristic of his painterly craft. Rather than having a very standardised way of painting, Christophorou’s expressive pictorial metaphors can be lauded for their material experimentation. His panache hovers between fluidity and elegance, resulting in different pattern rhythms on the rough sandpaper surfaces. They focus primarily on capturing feelings and moods, thoughts or attitudes, and have a quality of being spontaneous - striking a chord with Helen Frankenthaler’s statement: "A really good picture looks as if it's happened at once."Image: Chris Chistophorou, District, 2023, gouache on sandpaper, H750 mm x W590 mm.©ChrisChristophorou and Renée Pfister Art & Gallery Consultancy, 2023.

    What does the adjective “Italianate” mean? After the pictorial tradition of the so-called “capricci” or “caprices”, this is a conventional attribute for fictional landscapes, composed with real or imaginary Italian elements, according to the painter's subjective experience, personal memory and cultural sensibility. Below, four relevant examples of Baroque or Romantic artists who visited Italy, and, by the way, at other times depicted realistic views of it.From left to right, and top to bottom: “An Italianate Landscape with Ruins” or “Ruins on the Edge of a Lake”, by the Dutch Jan Both (oil on panel: Staatliche Kunstsammlungen Dresden, Germany; circa 1640); “Italian Scene Composition”, by the British-American Thomas Cole (oil on canvas: New-York Historical Society; 1833); “A Dream of Italy”, by the African-American Robert S. Duncanson (oil on canvas: Birmingham Museum of Art, AL; 1865); T. Cole, once again, “The Vesper Hymn” (oil on canvas: Yale University Art Gallery, New Haven, CT; ca. 1838).Respectively, Cole and Duncanson were a founder and a follower of the Hudson River School of landscape painting, in the USA. Better than syncretic idealizations, their works look like synthetic transfigurations, tending to communicate a particular atmosphere. Especially, “The Vesper Hymn”, where a scene not new in the master's production recurs in the lower right. What can be added is that the pictorial mind is a specialized one, but such compositions may suggest something more about how visual memory works in general.

    A New Optical Technique Uses Intelligent Light to Restore the Colours of a 16th Century Wall Painting in OxfordImagine walking into a room where Shakespeare once stayed and seeing a wall painting that he might have admired. Now imagine seeing that painting in its original colours, as vibrant and vivid as they were in the 16th century. Sounds impossible? Well, not anymore, thanks to a new optical technique that can restore colours in artefacts without damaging them or altering their physical state.This technique uses an intelligent light system to reproduce the original colours of artefacts in the eyes of the viewers. It is non-intrusive, reversible, and cost-effective. It can also reveal hidden details that are invisible to the naked eye.This technique has recently been tested on a 16th century wall painting that was discovered in an old building in Oxford, which used to be The Crown Tavern - a place where William Shakespeare used to spend time. The results were impressive! The small area enhanced by the smart light technique revealed the vibrant colours of the painting, while the rest of the wall remained faded and discoloured. You can see the difference in the images below.The inventor and lead researcher of this project is looking for partners who’d be interested in developing and applying this technique to their collections or exhibits. Please contact Dr Alexander Kovalchuk, who will be happy to discuss this further with you.#conservation #restoration #fresco #mural #painting #drawing #art #MSI #multispectral #imaging #spectral #lighting #museum #archaeology #heritage #Oxford
