End of the Island: House on Pawley’s – Oil and Mechanical Repro

June 27, 2015

I just finished reading The Work of Art in the Age of Mechanical Reproduction- source UCLA Theatre

1. Art has always been reproducible and the replica, or mechanical means of copying the original represents something new, but not necessarily sovereign (pure).

2. Even the most perfect art reproduction lacks “authencity,” the unique presence of time and space the original work had- changes have been made in ownership. Sovereignty is lost.

Here is my painting of an accidental encounter.

Questions You Might Ask Yourself?

1. Has anyone ever seen an objects “aura” ?

Reflection: Aura can be the energy in our practice. Each mark embodies an emotion.

2. In nature, can we really see an “aura,” or do we experience “aura” or both?

Studio Visits: If you land upon my blog and artwork your comments are welcome. This is a friendly space for observations or comments.

Suggestions: those are welcome as well. I post various paintings (some are in progress, some are finished).

Walk Around Pawley’s Island- Oil and Representation

June 27, 2015

I just finished reading Cultural Representations and Signifying Practices by Stuart Hall

1. Representation via language and signs impart meaning into our lives and culture.

2. Via the concept of representation, language is either reflected, intended or constructed. 

Reflection: Language can be a combination as well.

Here is my painting of an accidental encounter.

Questions You Might Ask Yourself?

1. How do we represent well to others what we intend using the medium of a painting, for example?

Reflection: What are our relationships to symbols? How did the research go, according to plan?

2. How do I know the signs in my paintings will be interpreted according to my personal code?

Reflection: Where is the money trail? What segment buys art? Perhaps, these questions will help as you plan out your work?

Reflection: “Meaning depends on the relationship between things in the world (people, object and events, real or fictional) and the conceptual systems, which can operate as mental representations.” (Hall 18) Examples: NBC peacock, Reading Rainbow represent knowledge as power.

Reflection: Visual Language (the relation between concept and sign):

1. Visual Signs- ICONIC resemble object.  2. Indexical- Written or Spoken Signs

Reflection: The main point is that meaning does not belong in things, in the world. It is created or constructed or produced and it is this result of a signifying practice that produces meaning.

In art today, there is a new casual-ism in painting and sculpture.

“Sunset Appearing” Landscape-pastel

September 24, 2009

Sunset Appearing-blog

Assorted pastels on Canson
12″ x 15 7/8″

Background Ambience: You might want to listen to these “sunset” songs if you are thinking about creating a painting about sunsets yourself. Here is my songset about “sunsets” or “skies” as songs with “sunset” in the title is hard to find, especially songs that are free too!

Comments Welcome. This is a “daily painting” and not meant to be a long exercise.

Additional artwork on my carousel via HyLit radio.com Ways to Advertise on this blog-click here

About a year ago I posted “daily paintings”- which were small exercises such as the one above; however, life got in the way and I had to take on multiple roles and fit a lot more into my day and this ritual about ended for me. I hope to return to the page more these days.

“Sunshine on Charleston Harbor ”

January 17, 2008

Wednesday, January 16, 2008

This marshscape fulfills my ’07 objective to take a favorite image and enlarge it to a full sheet of Wallis paper. The paper I had measured 25″ x 36″ and I will probably mat this using a 3 or 4 inch mat. I started this image the last week of 2007 and below is the final result.

(Computer not playing nice as you can see I have 2 uploads).
As I load this image up it is SNOWING where I am, and just starting to stick! So, I guess my palette might change the next week?

Studio location: 1517 Camden Road in Historic South End design district of Charlotte, NC by appointment

THIS IMAGE HAS SOLD SINCE I MADE THIS POST. It went to Connecticut.

 (included in) North Carolina Community Treasures (a 263 page compilation-resource guide about North Carolina places, the business people who live there, their products and their passions). This hardbound, coffee table book will guide you to some of the most inviting places across the state, from the warm Atlantic shores to the breathtaking Appalachian Mountains.

 

“Sunset Sail”, “Sunlit Rose,” “Breezy Hut”: ACEOs

January 11, 2008

Friday, January 11, 2008

Three ACEOs to follow below- my first attempt at “ACEOs.” ACEO stands for Artist Collectors Edition or Original, sometimes called ATC or Artist Trading Cards. They are popular among my artist friends who carry and trade them. Often they are wallet size or a little larger, as mine are here.

Sunset Sail $15+ $5 s & h

aceo-sunset-sail.jpg

Sunset Sail measures 4″ x 6″ and is pastel on Holbein vegetable flake paper (a great paper my friend Karen gave me at a beach workshop)

Sunlit Rose $15 + $5 s & h

sunlit-roseblog.jpg

Sunlit Rose is 3″ x 6″ pastel on La Carte pastel card

and lastly,

Breezy Hut $SOLD

breezy-hut-blog.jpg

Breezy Hut is 6″ x 9″ pastel on Wallis paper- which has a top frayed paper edge I can’t show here but the deckled edge makes it interesting.

ACEOs allow for  greater experimentation with your chosen medium. They are fast studies you can usually fit into a busy day. You might spend as little as 15 minutes on one. Sizes I see artists use are 4x4s, 4x6s and 6x6s, but you can use any size you feel comfortable with.

Sea Fans and Kelp- a painting a day by roselynn

sea-fans-kelp-web-archive.jpg

I sold this one but due to time restraints over the weekend, I didn’t paint. Sometimes, we rest in the process. Sometimes, we put others first.

It was a collage and reminded me of the ocean and what lives there.

I used inks and acrylics on bristol board.
