Video: Artist Metrov Responds to Curators Request to See His Process

California artist Metrov demonstrates his skills as an artist, film editor and filmmaker in his “Making Of” documentary video A Study in Body/Psyche Ratios. Below:(runtime: 7 minutes).

Metrov wrote this introduction to his video–

“Last year, I made a (30) minute documentary video about my life in the arts. Though it was well-received, I had a few curators tell me they are mostly interested in the artist’s “Process.” I also got a fair amount of feedback suggesting the video should be shorter. This new video is (7) minutes and focuses solely on “the Process.” Since I’m an experienced filmmaker and editor, it was relatively fun and easy to produce this kind of presentation. I believe the video should help viewers more deeply understand and identify with the work. However, I’m not inclined to write much about it as it should speak for itself. Anyone is welcome to contact me should they want more info.”

A Study in Body/Psyche Ratios (Warning: Adult Content)

Metro’s video demonstrates the “making of” work in his new 2015 series: A Study in Body/Psyche Ratios  — eleven 24″ X 18″ mixed media paintings on archival photographs and two 36″ X 24″ mixed media paintings on canvas. Each original is accompanied by ten 40″ X 30″ signed, limited edition prints. For more information, please contact the artist.

Artists Switch From Labeling Their Paintings Acrylic To *Synthetic Polymer*

Originally posted on Artist Marketing Resources:

I wrote and published this article in June of 2012, yet artists are still commenting on it.

So I thought I’d reblog it.  Here’s the original article–

I don’t know all the reasons for acrylic shame, but I do know that many galleries and artists have long labeled acrylic paintings as *mixed media* to help increase sales. I’ve also heard stories of art collectors losing interest and walking away from a painting once they learned it was painted with acrylic paints.

Lately, I have noticed a new trend–contemporary artists are labeling their paintings *synthetic polymer* paintings rather than use the dreaded word *acrylic* to describe their work.

I’m thinking of doing the same. Synthetic polymer does sound more advanced, up-to-the-minute, complex. Perhaps *synthetic polymer* as a medium is actually more accurate a description, since *acrylic* does come in many forms other than paint. There are acrylic nails, acrylic fish tanks…

International Contemporary Quilt Art Site Membership

Screen Shot 2015-01-24 at 3.31.11 PM

We usual feature art sales sites for painting, photography and prints. This time we are entering into the medium of textile art, featuring a site that hosts a group of professional quilt artists from Britain, Ireland, Belgium, Denmark, Germany, Hungary, the Netherlands and the USA. Looking at the images of the work on the site, their quilts can sometimes be mistaken for collage art, paintings, calligraphic and Asemic art.

QUILT ART was founded in 1985 with the aim to extend the boundaries of quilting as an artistic medium and to achieve wider recognition of the quilt as an art form. The QUILT ART artist holds regular touring exhibitions in Britain and Europe and have also exhibited in Japan and Canada. To accompany each exhibition they publish a high quality exhibition catalog.

Application for new membership:

Quilt Art welcomes applications for membership. The application process is in two stages.

1. At least images of 6 pieces of work made within the last three years showing the whole quilt including edges and close up shots are to be sent by email or on a CD, along with an artist’s statement and CV. Please add titles, dates, a brief outline of techniques and captions aka image script.

2. Applicants who are successful at this stage will be invited to attend an interview and bring examples of their work. This will be at the home of one of the members. A final decision will be taken after the interview.If you would like to apply to join Quilt Art, please write a letter (or email) with the information listed below:

  • Name
  • Address
  • Telephone Number
  • Email Address
  • Website (if applicable)

Update: the Worlds First Art Mall

Screen Shot 2015-01-21 at 8.45.02 AM

On November 25th 2012, I published news of the K11 Art Space, the Worlds First Art Mall, which is located in the Tsim Sha Tsui district of the city of Hong Kong.

The K11 Art Space Art Mall has grown considerably since I first wrote about it here! Like many visitors to Hong Kong, I quickly found myself in the Tsim Sha Tsui district shortly after arrival, on direct route from the airport, in search of an affordable room and the best places to shop. The Tsim Sha Tsui district has a lovely night view of the waterfront and city skyline, a public fine arts library, and a new fine arts museum under construction.

  • K11 Art Space now publishes the free Artoid art magazine.
  • K11 Art Space is showcasing the Photography Exhibition – Scenes of the City, on view from the 6th of January to the 3rd of February 2015. Photographs by expatriate Hong Kong resident from The Philippines, Xyza Cruz Bacani. Her work has been featured in The New York Times and Vogue.

K11 Art Space Art Mall exhibits, promotes and sells local artists and artists based internationally in live exhibitions, online, and in their K11 Design Store. K11 Design Store features budding and exceptional designers from all over the world every season. In the past they have feature design works by an American living as an expatriate in Thailand and other artist-designers living in France and Italy.

A few days ago, artist Isabella Chan sent us this update — “Actually, K11 artist klub members can enjoy various support from K11 artist klub.”

WHAT IS K11 ARTIST KLUB? The K11 Artist Klub is a unique platform for the artistic community to share their ideas as a portal to facilitate connections between the business community and Klub 11 members.  K11 is always looking for new artistic collaborations and partnerships.

#ArtBuyer: “As soon as I saw the painting I knew I had to have it”

 

 

Ignition, Randall Marmet', 16 x 20 x 3/4 inches. This hand-painted artwork is on hand-stretched gallery-quality canvas clear coated with archival artists varnish for protection against dust and abrasion. $130.00 USD

Ignition, Randall Marmet’, 16 x 20 x 3/4 inches. This hand-painted artwork is on hand-stretched gallery-quality canvas clear coated with archival artists varnish for protection against dust and abrasion.

Artist Randall Marmet’, whose trademarked tagline is Imagine owning original art. Because you deserve it!™ was delighted with the sale of his painting titled Ignition. We featured his artwork in past articles here and here.

Randall–a consummate entrepreneur– has his shipping rates in place to offer the lowest costs to buyers of his artwork in the USA and overseas.  When Randall shipped this painting to the art buyer, he wrapped it with acid-free paper, then a double layer of bubble wrap and an extra rigid layer of foam core board on the front side to protect the painting inside the heavy-duty box.  He insured the value of the painting through the United States Postal Service (USPS) as well.

The buyer of Ignition told Randal that when he saw the painting, he knew he had to have it. That’s how real the painting looks in the above image. For, of course, the image is what the buyer saw before he made his purchase of the work and will only actually view the physical  art work when it arrives at his door.

 

Today, we are also featuring Randall Marmet’s Wellness of Life video (above). Last week, we featured still images of Randall’s painting Wellness of Life along with his pet dog and muse Harley here. Our feature article included details on the retail price of the painting and how to acquire the artwork. You can also communicate with the artist directly via his website Marmet Fine Art to find out more.

Wellspring of Life (painting detail 2)

Wellspring of Life the story and inspiration, by Randy Marmet’–
“We float over a sea of tumultuous energy, right through a barrier of fluid dynamics into a dimension of transcendence where creativity is born in synaptic interaction.  If you could peer into the depths of the creative process, this is where you would find a pulsating liquid nuclei that refuses to be subdued into shape or form and is similar to where life began.  My inspiration came from a deep water dive off the coast of Florida where tropical life was teeming in and around a barrier reef with such energy that it made me feel like I had discovered the secret to the source of life itself.  This sacred place spoke to me in a whisper as I was sworn to secrecy because of it’s fragility.  I cannot return to that place, but I can show you how it felt.”
