This is entirely made out of computer chips (Asus is a computer company).
The latest addition to Artinthepicture is French Conceptual artist Daniel Buren. In line with my previous post on Yayoi Kusama, Daniel Buren also has his signature art recipe: vertical stripes. The above installation I found the most impressive, but you can choose your favorite (as always) on the main site.
This small introductory animated video claims to bring Claude Monet’s paintings to life. I will definitely take a closer look at the complete video’s and let you know how I feel about them.
Today is a beautiful day as the first Eastern artist is introducted to Artinthepicture.com. Having the honour to be first is contemporary Japanese female artist Yayoi Kusama.
“A polka-dot has the form of the sun, which is a symbol of the energy of the whole world and our living life, and also the form of the moon, which is calm. Round, soft, colourful, senseless and unknowing. Polka-dots can’t stay alone; like the communicative life of people, two or three polka-dots become movement… Polka-dots are a way to infinity.”
Typical artist gibberish or genius insights ? I don’t know. What I do know is you’ll be able to impress many friends the next time you notice the autograph of Kusama in an exhibiton and can still recall the name Kusama.
