Actually I forgot about this(maybe because it was so painful to do), but our instructor had us choose a famous artist's work and try to copy it. I chose Chagall's 'Bride'-big mistake!!! Choosing a painting with only 3 major colors means having to try and match stroke for stroke. But, the instructor likes it so much, he hasn't taken it out of the showcase in 6 months!!! Judge for yourself(although I think I did more touching up after I took the photo):

great work by all of you guys! I still don't get it. What the heck is the definition of a visuel artist?

Hey tophat! Can I ask why you included the Danish Dannebrog flag when Piet Mondrian was Dutch?

I guessed, but I think I'm on pretty safe ground when I say that a visual artist is anyone who does something they call art that is primarily experienced through vision: painters, scultpors, photographers, flimmakers, formal gardeners, architects, and craftsmen of various types. (That reminds me, I should do a tribute to Lee Wulff, the fellow who invented a class of hair winged fishing flies that bear his name.)

Because I am nowhere near as clever as I pretend to be.

On the other hand, Holland doesn't, so far as I know, have any plan to try to claim the north pole, whereas Denmark does, and I can see a soggy-footed fellow favoring their claim. Since that claim is arcanely based on a submarine continuation of Greenland, injecting it into the public consciousness through a work of art (such as it is) might bolster their claim in the public eye somewhat. Or not.

On the gripping hand, I should have known better than to try to slide something I wasn't entirely sure about by folks here.

I see. I figured I'd ask since I thought that the flag was suppose to be some kind of message to me. Silly me

You mean you've never heard of Flimmakers? I hear there's some spectacluar flim being produced in Asia these days. What with the fall of the Soviet Union, flimmakers no longer risk public approval when they spead their peculiar version of reality.

Now, I am no expert, but I understand that contemporary flimmaking still involves large numbers of feathers, a good, organic peanut butter, and lots and lots of love.

(Of course, I did mean filmmakers, but a good flim has significant visual as well as olfactory impact.)

I did this for a figure drawing class way back when. The assignment was supposed to be a figure of ourselves integrated into an artist's work. I chose Harold Edgerton's Bullet through Balloons and superimposed my face onto the middle balloon. I like how it came out so much that I turned it into my business card. My instructor was a little peeved that it wasn't a figure, but cut me some slack.

Great work everyone, you've hit on some of my favorite artists.

Fun as it is poking fun at the excesses of the modern artist (and I may yet do a tribute to Warhol), this is a tribute thread, and I want to post an actual tribute to an artist I have admired. Lee Wulff was a fisherman and designer of dry flies. Two of his designs - the one I present below and the Black Wulff - caught me perhaps 60% of the fish I have ever hauled in on a fly rod. A fishing fly is a visual art form that must appeal to two audiences: people and fish (and I know that man and fish can coexist).

Tribute to M.C Escher

My Nanna had this really strang picture in one of her rooms, I used to stare at it for ages because the way the lizards in the picture seem to flow so smoothly from perceived 3D and a flat 2D image within the image itself, only recently I have found out who the artist is.. the name of that particular piece was called 'Reptiles'

This object was taken from 'Study for Stars'




You can find more about him at:
M.C Escher

Pacifier, I'm really enjoying your 3D work
FngKestrel, that is superb!


Anyone seen G.H around?

Nancy: Yeah, it was a several week project and the actual piece is on a sheet of paper originally 18x24. Thanks for the kind words.

GoldenOuroboros: Awesome work, Escher is one of my favorites. Thank you too for the kind words.

In general, I like what everyone's done. Awesome work all around.

Great work, guys!
Here's my tribute to Klee: A recreation of Archangel


This is from the same project as my Gorman Woman I posted not too long ago. That project was a synthesis of my 20th Century Art class and my Digital Imaging class.

Another M.C. Escher. I did this 3D, but used Photoshop to touch it up.

It's a tribar.
