www.vernissage.tv | This year's ABC - Art Berlin Contemporary runs under the motto About Painting. But it's not strictly painting. Visitors to the fair will also find sculpture, drawing, video etc. Some of them are more "painterly" than others. Art Berlin Contemporary, the "independent, hybrid exhibition format, between curated show and gallery event", was founded four years ago by a group of Berlin galleries.

I'll leave defending the gloriousness of conceptual art to another time, and instead just babble about how much wonderful art there is out there.

I live and work in the city of Dieppe, New Brunswick, Canada. I've been happily married to my wife Colette for over five years, and we have two beautiful children. Colette has been both my biggest critic and my biggest fan. She's supported my artistic dreams since day one. I'm what you could call a part-time, self-taught artist. Having worked at an advertising agency for over six years, I'm constantly surrounded by creativity -- I'm exposed to colours, textures, and shapes every day. These all become inspiration for my art. My paintings are growing in popularity. I've sold paintings to individuals, businesses, and interior designers across Canada and in the United States. Many sizes and styles are available. I also paint commissioned pieces upon request. When it comes to my personal life, I like things to be simple and very organized. You can tell by the look of this site. When it comes to painting, I love movement and rich colors. All of my paintings have rich textures, as I mostly use heavy body paint. The beauty of abstract art is that I never know what I'm going to paint until I actually paint it. I usually have a good idea of the primary colors I will use in the piece but the rest is usually unknown. It's purely done in the moment and that's why I love to paint abstract art. I'm very thankful that I have the talent to paint. I hope to continue painting throughout my life.

View all of my Japanese art (Japanese paintings and art prints) at www.soniei.com . Title: Yumeoibioto (Original Painting Sold | Similarly Themed Art Prints for Sale) Japanese Calligraphy: Yumeoibioto (Dream Chaser) Style: Japanese Art | Contemporary Art Subject: Full Moon, Tree and Japanese Calligraphy Size: Approx. 20" x 16" x 0.75" Medium: Acrylic Paint on Stretched Canvas Description: I decided to create this Japanese painting in black and white because I wanted the full moon to really POP out of the sky. Then I made the tree branches wrap around the moon. I wanted it to feel like the tree was reaching beyond its limits, and acheiving its dream by grabbing hold of something unimaginable. That's why I thought the Japanese Calligraphy yumeoibito, which means dream chaser, would be perfect for this Japanese painting. Art For Sale: The original painting featured in the video above was sold, however there are similar art prints for sale in the Moonlight Collection ( www.soniei.com ). All of my art prints are completely customizable online: size, framed or unframed, paper or canvas, etc (all price ranges).

Richard Diebenkorns Ocean Park No. 117, 1979, a consummate work for the artist, which luminously illustrates the best qualities of his most celebrated series of paintings, achieved $6578500, just shy of the artists auction record of $6.76 million. Through his use of bright and cool blues and yellows, the artist communicates the ephemeral quality of nature, capturing the sensation and radiance of the coastal environment in which this work was created.
Roy Lichtenstein's Frolic, painted in 1977, is a playful rampage through the history of art, as its title suggests. In this painting, Lichtenstein has taken various influences - his own earlier works, Pablo Picasso, Surrealism and the science of sight - and has smashed them all together, dragging them through the filter of his own idiosyncratic style, in order to create a picture that is at once bright, witty and thought-provoking.
Typewriter Eraser, a work that epitomizes Claes Oldenburg's revolutionary approach to sculpture sold for $2210500 and set a new world record for the artist. Produced in 1976, Typewriter Eraser presents a giant disk-shaped eraser that appears to have just alighted on the ground, the bristles of its brush turned upward with a sense of dynamic grace. Oldenburg transforms this once ubiquitous office accessory into a grand monument. In 1970, he began to sketch its mass-produced form, placing it ...

http://www.vernissage.tv | As part of our trip to Madrid we visited the Centro Andaluz de Arte Contemporaneo (CAAC) in Sevilla (2.20 hours away from Madrid by High Speed Train).

The Morning Line is a new experimental project by Matthew Richie, designed in collaboration with architects Aranda / Lasch and Daniel Bosia of Arup Advanced Geometry Unit.

The Morning Line was presented at biacs3: youniverse, the 3rd Sevilla Biennial (Bienal de Arte Contemporaneo de Sevilla). Matthew Ritchie was born in London in 1964.

Immaginate un invito per una collettiva di artisti internazionali contemporanei in una galleria d'arte. Immaginate di entrare e lasciarvi incuriosire dagli stili diversi, dalle tecniche classiche o innovative. Immaginate di trovare echi di Monet o di Chagall, una nuova interpretazione della Natura Morta o uno stile naif raffinato e retrò. O di scoprire un'emozione nuova. Perchè l'arte, al di là delle scuole e delle tecniche, è e resta principalmente un'esperienza dei sensi. E nell'allestire questa mia piccola galleria virtuale ho volutamene privilegiato le opere e gli artisti capaci di suscitare in me un turbamento, una malinconia, un sorriso o un desiderio. Spero che possiate anche voi uscire dalla visita alla Donni Gallery con un'emozione in più. Contemporary international painters to discover new styles and tecniques and feel deep emotions, because art is a soul experience.

The premise of Su Xinpings show, entitled Toasting, is allegorical in its striking but troubled imagery of bare-chested men lifting glasses in an atmosphere of post-apocalyptic emptiness. -Jonathan Goodman ChinaSquare proudly presents SU XINPING : Toasting, accompanied by a full-color catalogue and essay by Judd Tully. The exhibit is on view September 2nd through 27th with an opening reception Thursday, September 4th, from 6 to 8 pm. Su Xinping possesses a tireless commitment to culture and craft, an impassioned approach obvious in his work. Raised in the far-flung grasslands region of Inner Mongolia, the artist grew up in a nomadic culture known for its respect towards nature and community. Throughout his career, Su has aimed to produce a visual catalogue of his experiences. His early work portrayed common life in Inner Mongolia; later, like many of his contemporaries, he became engrossed in investigating the pressures on individuals in a society undergoing rapid economic development. What makes Su Xinping and his art extraordinary, however, is the artists dedication to progressing his art forms. In an era where impatience for financial gain often triumphs over the patience required for disciplined study, Su is an outspoken advocate of personal growth and achievement. The mastery of both technique and self-reflection has resulted in wide critical acclaim for work collected by the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art and Portland Art Museum as well as institutions in England, Australia, Japan, Germany, Finland, and his native China. Toasting suggests a sense of hopefulness as scenes of shirtless men drinking, singing, and cheering in playful camaraderie dominate the over-sized canvases. Art critic Judd Tully notes, Toasting is a universal custom, usually aimed at good health and fortune, an almost clichéd notion of lifting a glass as an expression of optimism and good-natured nod to the future. Judd Tully is the editor-at-large of Art + Auction in New York. Titles by the widely published journalist and critic include Red Grooms and Ruckus Manhattan (George Braziller, New York) and Guillermo Roux (Rizzoli, New York).
