Pictured: Edvard Munch – The Scream. A modernist movement originating in Germany, Expressionism sought to convey meaning or emotional experience rather than physical reality. A typical trait of Expressionism is to present the world solely from a subjective perspective, distorting it radically for emotional effect and to evoke moods or ideas.
Pictured: Vincent Van Gogh – The Starry Night. Post-Impressionism was a term coined to describe an emerging art-form that was an extension to Impressionism. Artists continued to use vivid colors, thick application of paint, distinct brush strokes, and real-life subject matter, but were more inclined to emphasise geometric forms, distort true forms for expressive effect, and use unnatural, exaggerated, or arbitrary color.
I went in to the dealership for my free oil change and saw this cup sitting there. The cashier said that a young man had come in to have some work done and it was going to take about three hours. "I’ll just doodle" he said, and grabbed a ball point and a coffee cup. This is the bottom of the styrofoam cup. Check out the detail in the hand-carved chain ~ this was done 100% with a regular ball point pen.
French artist Bernard Pras works almost entirely within the realm of assemblage and anamorposis, a visual illusion where a distorted projection—often made from paint or a collection or objects—must be viewed from a specific vantage point to reconstitute the intended image. His latest piece, a portrait of Malian actor Sotigui Kouyaté, is comprised of numerous objects including clothes, paint, wood, rubber, and other objects found or scavenged around the installation site. Only when viewed through the lens of his camera is the image clearly visible.
