bea maddock panorama

Terra Spiritus... with a darker shade of pale 1993-8, by Bea Maddock

Tasmanian artist Bea Maddock’s work ‘Terra Spiritus, with a darker shade of pale’. The work in its entirety is a series of fifty-one drawings that provide a circumlittoral drawing of the Tasmanian coastline. Worked with hand ground Launceston ochre over a letter-press and finished with hand drawn script, the works include indigenous and non indigenous place names that underscore the panoramas.

In an interview with Diane Dunbar, Curator of Fine Art at the Queen Victoria Museum and Art Gallery in 1998, Bea Maddock said that Terra Spiritus was a continuation of previous work dealing with Tasmania and Aboriginal place names. But it was seeing and drawing the coastline as she returned from a trip to Antartica that really gave her the spark.

Originally she had an idea to travel around the island in a boat but it was expensive and sitting at sea trying to draw was cumbersome. So she sat with graph paper and maps and found that by calculating the height and distance and allowing for the curvature of the earth she was able to translate the coastline to paper. She spent two years doing the graph drawings and five years in total completing the work in both Launceston and her Oatlands studio from 1993 to 1998. abc

landscapes exhibition homepage

Photos of Strahan on Linden's blog reminded me of this work. I saw it installed in a small room. What was fascinating was that the panorama circumnavigated you, whilst the image it contained circumnavigated an island. A toroidal effect worthy of the the tardis or ringworld.

William Kentridge

Still from William Kentridge's film installation in the Italian pavilion, Venice 2005

"One of the fascinating things about William Kentridge's films is how they let the process show. Because he draws, shoots, erases and shoots again to create his imagery - rather than painting animation cells or digitally developing scenes - I am conscious of his means, even his touch. It was Kentridge's genius to show how the directness of drawing could survive the indirectness of a camera-based art."
- from "William Kentridge" by Janet Koplos, Art in America, December, 2000
- at gregkucera

gregkucera's print listing

I have never tried to make illustrations of apartheid, but the drawings and films are certainly spawned by and feed off the brutalized society left in its wake. I am interested in a political art, that is to say an art of ambiguity, contradiction, uncompleted gestures, and certain endings; an art (and a politics) in which optimism is kept in check and nihilism at bay.
— William Kentridge

Kentridge drawing in his studio, Johannesburg ©the artist


is a psychoanalytic study of the work of artists William Kentridge and Lucian Freud. It draws on the major exhibitions of the past decades together with interviews and includes over one hundred and fifty images in colour. There are also photographs of recent work from William Kentridge's studios in NYC and Johannesburg. The text has a coda on Barnett Newman. Sigmund Freud's letters on art (with previously untranslated passages) appear together with a focus on his clinical and theoretical writings on fetishism. Major European writers like Arendt, Balzac, Beckett, Pessoa, Rilke, Svevo, Tolstoy, Varnhagen, and Zweig, among others, constitute the intellectual horizon.

LSD blotter art

Blotter Art is a term that originally referred to the absorbant paper that liquid LSD was sometimes dropped onto. Artwork was printed onto "blotter" paper and then perforated into tiny squares or "hits," which could be torn apart into easy to manage quantities.

Forms of LSD Pills

In the 1960s, when LSD was legal, it was distributed in large pills, sometimes called "barrels" because of their shape. It was also sold on anything from sugar cubes to animal crackers. Dealers began to want their "batch" of LSD to be recognizable from the others, so they began to invent ways to trademark their acid. The chemists would make the pills a certain shape or color as to set them apart from others, especially if they were packaging particularly potent dosages. This also served as a form of a validation of authenticity, proving that the dealers were not selling fake LSD. As a bonus, the dealers would get a kick out of the buzz created by their "brand" of acid. Sometime after LSD became illegal, mandatory minimum sentencing was set into place. These laws placed mandatory sentences on drug offenders based on the weight of the substances with which they were caught. Therefore a drug dealer busted with one dose of acid on a sugar cube that weighed 1 gram would get the same sentence as a dealer caught with 1 gram of LSD crystal, which would represent about 10,000 doses of LSD! It didn't take a genius to figure out that a new, lightweight, medium for distributing LSD was needed.

In comes Blotter Art:
The foremost Blotter Art historian, Mark McCloud, suggests that after Owsley Stanley's pill press was busted, that Blotter Acid began to make its way on to the streets, replacing the pills as the standardized medium. Shortly after, iconic images began to make their way onto Blotter Paper, which allowed dealers to easily put their own logo on the acid they were selling. The logo could have been professionally printed or have been a rubber stamp of some image that further served as an underground trademark. Not only did this serve to identify a brand of acid, but by using Blotter Paper, which weighed far less than other mediums, it kept drug dealers who got busted from getting as much mandatory time.

Today, the term "Blotter Art" takes on a whole new meaning. Now, Blotter Art refers to a highly collectable form of artwork. It steals its popularity from the visual similarities it shares with its' once prolific chemical-soaked cousin. Blotter Art has transcended the underground drug market and is available to art lovers worldwide. It is not illegal, it is ART! It celebrates the days gone by when we were young and our minds were blooming. Now we no longer have to use an illegal substance to take a "trip," even if it is down memory lane.

reblogged from easybakecoven

The Timothy Leary Rainbow design contains smaller images from the "Leary Profile" blotter. This blotter measures 7.5 in. by 7.5 in. or 30 squares by 30 squares. That makes a total of 900, 1/4 in. squares.

on postcard art

"postcards are so last century"

from the guardian

Art-lovers and bargain-hunters were out in force in Kensington this morning as the Royal College of Art opened its annual “secret” postcard exhibition, offering the chance to snap up works by the likes of transvestite potter Grayson Perry and photographer David Bailey for just £35 a piece, writes David Batty.

This year there are a record 2,700 cards available, submitted by big-name artists and art students alike – but you only find out whose card is who's when you’ve bought them and can see the artist’s signature revealed on the back.

Lucky buyers so far include Carlito Briones, a 52-year-old currency trader from Balham, south London, who bought two Damien Hirsts, and a 50-year-old retired engineer called Austin who snapped up cards by Paula Rego and Julian Opie.

But after 12 years the exhibition has got a bit tired. After all, postcards are so last century. And with art nerds bringing along their cronies to snap up as many works by famous names as possible, it’s time for something a bit more challenging.

So how about a guess the sheets competition, where you have to pick which dirty linen was stripped off Tracey Emin’s infamous bed? Or let’s see whether you can tell a transcript of Fiona Banner’s Turner Prize-nominated Arsewoman in Wonderland from Alistair Campbell’s erotica or extracts from Black Lace books.

But perhaps the ultimate challenge would be the Kim Howells’ lucky dip, in honour of the former culture minister who labelled the Turner prize as "conceptual bullshit", where you have to find a Manzoni in a stack of unlabelled tin cans.

Biologists say they have created a "living photographic film" from engineered intestinal bacteria, which is capable of taking high-resolution black-and-white pictures.

In a study published in British science weekly Nature today, a US team has extracted a light-sensing gene from a germ called a cyanobacterium to make the film.

They have stitched it into the cell membranes of Escherichia coli (E coli) bacteria so exposure to red light switches off a gene that controls the production of the bug's black pigment.

As a result, black-and-white images can be "stencilled" onto a mat of the engineered bacteria grown on a plate of protein-rich lab gel.

The resolution and tone scale are extraordinarily good because the screen's definition is on bacterial scale, at up to 100 million pixels per square inch.

The authors from the University of California say their invention could spur "bacterial microlithography" and the creation of new materials made from living organisms.

They say their study could also help unlock fundamental knowledge about how bacteria use gene switches to send signals to each other. abc

aboriginal art ripoff? - reveiwed

what's wrong with this image?

Oh, I know, its the Australian aboriginal artist called Johan Helder.... mmmm

This was what I posted last week.

So, having my curiosity aroused, I took the opportunity to visit the gallery. Its on Sarphatistraat, next door to the Albert Hein supermarket and around the corner from an Amsterdam uni campus. Its a community run space where artists are required to make a portfolio submission to board. The gallery is then rented for monthly periods. This isnt Amsterdam's "Paddington". The gallery stable was what you would expect, student and emerging work.

In regards to Johan Helder's work, it appeared to have been directly copied from reproductions of aboriginal art. I recognised the styles of various different artists. It looked like bad copies of pretty patterns. No knowledge or understanding of technique or culture. The other paintings, acrylic abstracts, were equally poor.

What was really sad about this is that the gallery minders were very friendly and helpful and gave me one of the warmest welcomes I have received in an Amsterdam gallery. It looks like a good community space. Its just a pity that they are so uninformed about art and culture from australia and aboriginal copyright.

Here is the website, have a look at the opening photos, they give a good impression of what sort of space this is and high fashion amongst the dutch arty community....

What is our Australia Council doing to promote Australian art overseas?

anita klein

anita klein studied at chelsea and the slade schools of art. she is president of the royal society of painter printmakers (re) and has work in many private and public collections in europe, the usa and australia, including the arts council of great britain.

Australian born painter and printmaker Anita Klein now lives and works in London and has exhibited her prints and large oil paintings extensively in the UK, Australia and California. Trained at the Chelsea School of Art and the Slade School of Fine Art , she is a fellow of the Royal Society of Painter Printmakers, has been shown at the Royal Academy and the Institute of Contemporary Arts in London. Her work is held in many private and public collections including The Arts Council of Great Britain.

Anita's work is a humorous visual diary celebrating the small domestic moments we all share; having breakfast with her daughters, shaving her legs while husband 'Nige' does his exercises, catching the guinea pig and many more. These moments are encapsulated with the soft blackness of the drypoint line, and while irrelevant details are ignored, others like Nige's hairy legs, or the television remote control are lovingly described.

Anita says that 'these everyday events are what she would miss most if it was all taken away'. While family photo albums record our lives as one long round of birthdays and holidays, the very moments we should most value are almost always ignored and forgotten. Anita first showed her work at Pyramid Gallery in 1994 and has been a regular exhibitor ever since.

David Bromfield
NOW (Gosia Wlodarczak, drawing 1986 - 2004)
Brown Art 96pp, $38.85

NOW is a place, the place to be, NOW.

David Bromfield's NOW is a study of the work of Gosia Wlodarczak in the context of Australian and International art over the last century. Bromfield demonstrates that her working strategy is NOW, a brilliant attempt to remain in the absolute present, together with her work. This, he argues, has long been the unacknowledged goal of art and artists from impressionism to the present day.

NOW the new millennium with its cult of false irony, debased scandal, second-degree references, careerism, and passive production, to order has reduced the experience of contemporary art to a sophisticated shopping ritual for those with too much cultural capital to spend. This has produced a CRISIS OF PRESENCE that pervades all art NOW. Gosia Wlodarczak's unique drawing and performance is NOW the most vivacious, refreshing, response to this crisis. Every work she makes adds to the substance of NOW her continuous present. Bromfield shows how she developed her approach though an analysis of her work over two decades

The artist has collaborated with the author to design a book that is itself intensely beautiful, a discreet side entrance to NOW. Forget the Future--Dismantle the Past We need art NOW.

The Beautiful Boy (2003) - Germaine Greer [Amazon.com] [FR] [DE] [UK]

Germaine Greer (born January 29, 1939) is an Australian academic, writer, and broadcaster, who is widely regarded as one of the most significant feminist voices of the 20th century. A professor of English literature at the University of Warwick in England, and the author of several highly acclaimed books, Greer's ground-breaking The Female Eunuch became an international bestseller when it was published in 1970, turning Greer overnight into a household name, and bringing her both adulation and criticism. Her ideas have created controversy ever since.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Germaine_Greer [Apr 2005]

Greer has made a career of the controversial polemic, most explosively in the 1970s with The Female Eunuch, brazenly arguing for women 's sexual liberation. Decades later, the Australian-born sensualist seeks to redress another wrong: heterosexual women's insensitivity to the boy as sexual object. Considering the utter fetishization of contemporary youth culture, it's difficult to sustain the argument that nubile lads are being neglected. But the present day isn't the volume's strength; the most modern icons include Elvis, Boy George, Kurt Cobain, Jim Morrison and Robert Plant-nary a boy band member.

The more compelling passages investigate shifting
representations in classical art-Cupid first depicted as sly aggressor, seducing his own mother, only to be desexualized in the more restrictive 19th century, conveniently cloaked by a drape or angel wing.

Except for a final chapter that glosses over the works of female artists, Greer hardly plunges into her initial aim "to advance women's reclamation of their capacity for and right to visual pleasure."

What does it mean for women to sexualize dewy, girlish boys created by male artists? To swoon over Caravaggio's provocative urchins, Michelangelo's languorous Dying Slave or Eakins's supple-skinned bathers? It's not clear, but then nuance has never really interested Greer.

Short on argument but long on lush reproductions of languid young men, the collection is better viewed than read. 200 color and b/w photographs and illustrations.
