My favorite artist is Irishman Harry Clarke. Illustrator and stained glass artist extraordinaire. Died young in the early 20th century- probably from heath complications from decades of using acid to etch glass. He had a creepy streak as well and was famous for illustrating for Edgar Allen Poe.

This first one is not a painting... it is made by layering acid-etched glass...

I'm actually with you Tiki on the Escher. Definitely ranks up in my top tier as well. I've always admired his ability to temper his technical and mathematics skills with true visionary artistic concepts. Pretty hard to wrap your mind around how his mind worked.


I've always wanted to take Escher's piece "Three Worlds" and execute it in stained glass a'la Harry Clarke using 3 layers of etched and sandblasted and painted glass stacked on top of each other. It's been on my back burner for years. Maybe I'll dig it out again.

Here are a couple of my favorites.

Ed Mell is a fairly well-known painter/sculptor from the US Southwest


Remedios Varo was born in Spain, spent her young adult years in France (in the company of the usual surrealist suspects), and eventually move to Mexico, where she did most of her work. She died there in 1963 (at the far-too-young age of 53). Here's just one sample of her painting

Not only is he pretty talented(imo), with no art school training, he is a single dad.

Ghost I have that same Ed Mell framed over the mantel here at the hut.

It's framed on the wall of my office in this Seattle tower. I'm looking at it as I type this post. I scored a bunch of Ed Mell prints for next-to-nothing at some shop in Boulder about 15 years ago.

The other one, the Varo print, is on a wall at home. Her stuff is just mind-blowing.

Yes, tiki, I've always loved Maynard Dixon's landscapes.
Reminded me a bit of an amazing landscape painter who pushed into abstraction, name of Douglas Snow, from Utah. Some of his canvases are massive and so immersive.

small images online don't do 'em justice.

Happy, that sheet looks awesome, he has an eye for color and detail. A good way to get his name out there, if you don't have connections, is by showing his work at a gallery. Get a portfolio of ten to fifteen pieces on a disc and target galleries that are likely to show his work. Thanks for images, those are drawings or paintings?

this just in -- I think he uses mixed media but not really sure, as I have to admit I never asked, and haven't seen his work in person(these are posted on his FB). I was at my sisters house over T/G and some oil paintings he had done were on the living room wall, but those were not the same style.

I think he is probably drawing with ink/markers and also paints, but then using scanning pieces and digital manipulation to produce the finished piece.

But I might be wrong.

Seeing original art of high quality is one of the advantages of living near a major city. For a fairly small amount of $, you can be a member of your local museum, and look at art over time. There are pieces at SFMOMA and the deYoung that I've sat in front of for hours now. Diebenkorn, Thiebaud, Rothko, on and on. The Oakland Museum has a great collection of the Bay Area artists, Bischoff, Oliveira, etc.

My vacations are 99% one of two things: climbing trips or looking at art trips. Last April, we spent two weeks in Rome, looking at amazing art every day. There are so many great art cities, London, Paris, NYC, DC.

Looking at art in person, standing in front of a painting, walking around a sculpture, is a magical experience. I cannot put it into words. Emotion, beauty, transendence...

I'm actually just about to leave to go up to SFMOMA for an hour...

I have always been partial to Dali's work. But I have to disagree with the comment that his work is all small:

The Hallucinogenic Toreador - 157in x 118in
Tuna Fishing - 119in x 159in
The Last Supper - 65in x 105in
Portrait of My Dead Brother - 69in x 69in
The Railway Station at Perpignan 116in x 158in

No famous melting watches or putrification, but I actually prefer his later work, it has the most incredible detail.

Sounds like Phylp gets out much more, and will know much better than I, but here's the list of current exhibitions:
http://www.sfmoma.org/pages/exhib_events

I had hoped to get there to see the Cartier-Bresson photo exhibition, but it likely won't happen. But hopefully when it opens in a month or so, I'll make it there to see the Eadweard Muybridge show.

One of the most memorable exhibits for me in recent years was of Olufar Eliasson's work.




I almost like his photographic series of Iceland more than his interactive conceptual work with light





Any recent favorites Phylp (with images to post)? Anyone else?

This just in,
The day I went up I looked again at "the Anniversary show" which highlights the historical progression of aquisitions of the collection. We arrived just before the start of a docent tour. I usually don't do docent tours - they often do not stay long enough at any particular piece for my taste - but this one was good because of the historical tidbits about the art donors to the museum.

We also went to the exhibit on wine and art, which was quite clever and fun.

Nate, I agree with you, the Olufar Eliasson exhibit was FANTASTIC. I was mesmerized by some of his stuff and he was a new artist for me.

It would be fun to do a "supertopo goes to the museum" event! Maybe I'll try to organize one the next time there's a good new exhibit opening at one of Bay Area museums.

http://www.phillipscollection.org/homepage.aspx

But I will post a photo of a piece that not many people get to see, since it’s in my house. It’s a piece by an artist named Robert Herdlein, who is a friend of mine:

I also love the abstract expressionists. My own paintings (usually landscape but sometimes still life) are very loosely figurative, and heavily influenced by both the aforementioned schools.

Here are two pieces from an exhibition currently at the SF Legion of Honor, called "Pulp Fashion, the art of Isabelle de Borchgrave", which Daphne and I went to this past weekend. The artist is inspired by fashion (mostly women's dresses) from recent times, or from paintings and recreates them COMPLETELY out of handmade paper, which she paints, punches etc.

The dresses and other objects are all full size. Even the mannequins are made of paper!

The Legion of Honor and the de Young have been criticized for presenting too much of the "decorative arts" rather than "fine art". I'm not interested in the whole "but is it art" debate. I do enjoy seeing these exhibits, as do many others - they are very popular with the public. When we were there it was packed with people walking around with their mouths dropped open in amazement at the perfection of the craft. Everybody was commenting how much they wanted to touch them.

Bump.

Upthread FortMental said "Dali comes to mind. His paintings are all disappointingly small, many no bigger that an 8 X 10 sheet of paper"

Odd sentiment. I've seen lots of Dali works (the Dali museum in St. Pete, FL is fantastic) and some of them are absolutely huge, one of them posted in that post is IRL about 6' x 4'. The Hallucinogenic Toreador is enormous, as is the Columbus landing one (can't recall the actual title). I wouldn't think of his stuff as being typically small at all, although one of the most impressive pieces to me was fairly small, about 20x30ish and not the surrealist stuff people think of, it was a still life of a bread loaf in a basket done to essentially prove to his mentors/teachers that he'd mastered the "normal" painting techniques/style.

Your stark images are reminiscent of surrealists like de Chirico. Not to put too fine a point on it, but Cezanne is considered a post-impressionist and the "father of modern art", while Picasso, though inspired by Cezanne, is thought of as the first Analytical Cubist (although some believe that honor should really go to Braque-especially Synthetic Cubism).

There are usually 3-4 artists who work on the large backdrops. That one took us about a week. Check out this set for Wagner's "Ring" Opera: sculpted foam over steel and ply, then polyshielded and painted. We spent 2 years making sets for one Opera!

It's always a treat to see this thread come back and to see the new additions from the many talented climber-artists among us, as well as to see what people are viewing at museums and exhibits.

If you are in the SF Bay area, the "Steins" exhibit at SFMOMA is well worth seeing. Besides the wonderful art (many excellent Picasso and Matisse), the curation is excellent! One of the most interesting features are the large scale (whole wall size) reproductions of photos of rooms in the different Stein's apartments and houses - which shows how they lived with several dozen paintings hung on the walls of one room - 3 or 4 high, arranged from floor to ceiling.

Next week, we have tickets for the Picasso show at the de Young. I'll report back about it!

The TACO HAS TALENT!!! I am so impressed by the creative drive, the ability to be on the edge and channel the muse. The aliveness displayed in the posted art has me very curious.

What is it about this clan, who scale walls and as Eckart Tolle says, climb to find that moment when it is just you and the rock. The noise stops and you find God. This ability to find this place and channel the inspiration into art. But not just art, magnificent manifestations.

Yesterday I went to SFMOMA and saw the Richard Serra "works on Paper" exhibit. It was fabulous! Totally not what I thought it might be. I guess I was expecting a series of line drawings as studies for his steel works. But, no! This huge show (17 rooms total) features a lot of wall sized paint pieces, many of them "solid" black. It's the texture, scale and interaction of the pieces in the room that makes these so wonderful.

Really worth checking out.

Today we went to see the exhibit
"The Cult of Beauty", about the aesthetic movement, at the Legion of Honor in San Francisco.

It's a well done exhibit of painting, furniture, other objects of utility like fireplace screens, clothing and tea pots, etc. While the style is not something I personally want in my minimalist modern space, they are quite beautiful.

In particular, I admired the James Whistler paintings. When I look at his work in person it seems to me that he was ahead of his time, and setting the stage for the greater freedom in brushwork, mood etc that followed him. Maybe someone who knows more about art history than I can comment.

so I tended to stick to Acrylics when I painted.

Cosmic-
Have you tried Japan drier with the oils? Small amounts are recommended, but I use it liberally, so paintings dry in a few hours. Acrylics are my usual medium too, especially for murals, used with an extender.

Keith, I've often wondered which of the "well known" artists of times past might have painted with acrylics if they had been available.

I've always thought Van Gogh. I've heard him described as a colorist but I've never agreed with that description.. Though I love his work, it's not for his use of color. Much of it gets muddy and I'm not sure that was his intent. Given the way he worked, I wonder if it's just the result of painting too fast with the oils of his time.

Another one who comes to mind is Turner.

Anybody have an opinion?

I would agree that color wasn't Van Gogh's specialty. His brush marks and the texture and movement that resulted from it is what made him special. One thing about his color was it wasn't realistic, it was stylized and in this way maybe he can be seen as a colorist.

I do think Van Gogh would have loved acrylics, because his paintings were heavily layered and you could tell he worked fast.

It would be cool, but it would probably have to be a virtual event, wouln't it? We're spread out all over the place.

I paint as a "hobby" although I hate that word for it. Haven't painted in a long time due to time contraints but have strongly felt the need to paint the past month. I've started on a landscape, here is a segment of the work in progress:

The frustration is seeing that it's mediocre, but knowing I just have to work through a half dozen mediocre pieces until I get some semblance of skill back, after such a long time away. Additional frustration of thinking I probably don't have the time to work consistently.

Regardless of the product, it's so mesmerizing to be painting again. There's no feeling like it. It's almost as good as being in the zone on a route.

The great debate of what is real art:-) Many believe landscape paintings aren't art, that they are decorations with no artistic merit, because they lack meaning. I disagree with this thought and with Tiki's too. Photography is art, photomanipulation is art, at least in my view, but some people disagree. Art is the expression of one's self (or thoughts) through their meduim of choice.

Oh. I'm very sorry about that, if it's the case. I have only gotten to the point in my computer edumacation that I just didn't think of it as "old hat, done that."

I have thought this over enough to say what I think. It is tough to be original in anything. Time, effort, cost of materials all go into art. Some art is less exhausting in these respects than others. There is a Cain and Abel effect among art guys who work, work, work, and art guys who simply need to go click, click, click, apparently.

Take that away and discuss it. I'd just like to see more art, by whatever definition.

Here's Merced's downtown theater complex, the Mainplace, and they built the murals on one corner of the building at 18th and K. One side of the cr. is metallic mural, the other is painted tiles with Yosemite and the San Jaoquin as the subjects. I'm crediting Dakota, the artist, a weird guy, to be sure.

The El Cap mural features a Yosemite Indian facing the viewer and trying to get though the "pane" between them. Even the "rotten log" features in the work.

Thanks Survival, but this thread is good because all the added work from everyone, one of my favorites as well. Love that work you added.

Snow- that is perfect. A funny story, when I was in nude drawing classes we would have thirty minutes to draw a realistic representation of the model. Now it takes me about a hour to get semi-realistic representation, while the student next to me was always done in five minutes and his work was always perfect. Some people just have the natural gift of being able to produce exactly what they see, with little to no effort. The best part was all he wanted to be was a comic book artist and could care less about fine art. Our professor would get irritated when she saw him reading a comic book when he was supposed to be drawing. At first she would walk over to him ready to lay into him, but what could she do when she saw his work was always spot on?

Neebee,
I didn't see it in a book; but read about in the book The Final Leap by John Bateson. The description and the Greek mythology behind it inspired me to find it. Icarus's feet are flailing about in the right end corner, most people never see them (and that is the fact that made me look at it).
BTY, I like the fellow in the top hat.

It is shameful that this thread always sinks so quickly.
