INTRODUCTION

Ever since early humans looked up in wonder at the sun, moon, and stars, we’ve been on a quest to decipher the mysteries of our cosmos. The vastness and unreachability of the “unknown” captivates the imaginations of scientists and artists alike.

The stream of new technologies and results of scientific experiments that inform our new understandings of the nature of the cosmos, inspire artists to create new works in all media and genres. And both the macro and the micro play leading roles as primary sources for contemporary creativity. Whether it’s flashes of the most ancient light left from the Big Bang, Curiosity Rover’s rock-testing for signs of microbial life on Mars, the image of a galaxy’s huge black hole eating a star, or finally knowing the nature of matter itself via the atom-smashing, Large Hadron Collider — all evocatively engage the mind and the spirit.

More than mere depictions of scientific data, artists strive to create expressions of how this expanding knowledge of our cosmos makes them feel. Many ancient cultures did this by devising stories and pictorial representations of star constellations. More recently, the astonishing “what-if” nature of writers like Jules Verne and H.G. Wells, birthed new narratives that culminated in the golden age of science fiction in literature, on TV with Star Trek, and in movies like Star Wars. It didn’t matter that these other-worldly fantasies about alien planets or aliens visiting our planet were unrealistic, their mass audience appeal remains alive and well today. The lure is understandable, as there is still so much unknown and mysterious about the cosmos.

Art & Science Collaborations is also on a mission of discovery. If your original art [executed in any media and documented via stunning visual imagery] relates to astronomy (including astrophysics, astrochemistry, astrobiology, astrogeology), questions of cosmology, extra-terrestrials, or the nature of matter and/or time in relation to universal laws — we look forward to your submissions!

New Paintings by San Francisco Bay Area Artist Marian Yap

Today we are featuring two paintings in Haiku Threads, a new series by Marian Yap, a San Francisco Bay Area artist. 
Marian says: “The green one is titled Celadon, the red one is titled Cinnabar.  Celadon green and cinnabar red are colors that appear frequently in Chinese fine arts, architecture, furniture, ceramics and textiles.  My work is generally abstract and I paint on canvas and paper.  I also do printmaking– primarily monotypes.  Let me know if you would like more information. Thanks, and keep up the good work!”

Electric Works Gallery and Print Publisher

Electric Works Gallery is a gallery and print publisher. They’re holding an open house this evening from 7 – 8 p.m. in their new gallery location, that houses new workspace and a bookstore, at

1360 Mission Street (between 9th and 10th) San Francisco, California. Visit their website and check the artists they publish, here: sfelectricworks.com/

Electric Works began printmaking in 1981, working with artists who are masters of strong visual content and with each printmaking project they have combined traditional techniques with new contemporary art challenges in an attempt to reinvent just what a print is, making the most ambitious projects possible.

In the Electric Works online bookstore you will find several prints in limited editions of 100 selling for only $40.00 each.

I enjoy reviewing small art publishing companies such as Electric Works, though hard to categorize for our PDF resource lists–are they an art licensing company, a gallery or a store?

You’ll find thousands of more links to art sales sites, art galleries and art licensing companies on our Artist Marketing Resources share lists. We’ve noticed an increase of sales of our PDF resources lists that sell for just $18.95. You can pay with PayPal or buy with Google Checkout** via the links below. Artists are gearing up for autumn submissions and using our resources, so I wanted to be sure to share these access links again:

GLOW: Art in the Public Realm

Primal Source for Glow 2008 by Usman Haque

Glow is a dusk-to-dawn art event on the beach and adjacent areas in Santa Monica, California.  The first Glow premiered on July 19, 2008 and attracted over 200,000 people.  Over 100 artists participated in 27 projects that spanned genres, technology and content–all with some orientation toward engaged participation with the diverse audience, from the most seasoned art world members to the general public, local residents, and international tourists.  The context of Santa Monica’s fabled beach, the power and allure of the Pacific Ocean and compelling contemporary art, all savored during the hours when museums and galleries sleep, made for a clamorous poetic experience.

 shapednoise for Glow 2010 by Céleste Boursier-Mougenot
Glow 2010 occurred on September 25 and attracted 150,000 people to the Santa Monica beach.  Projects by internationally renown artists (Céleste Boursier-Mougenot, Rafael Lozano-Hemmer and Yoshua Okón) and a strong contingent of Los Angeles-based artists included everything from highly advanced technological installations providing for intense audience interactive, to the purely accoustical pleasures of an accordion orchestra playing while riding the historic Santa Monica Pier Carousel.  The twenty projects included approximately 100 artists, with 50 musicians and dancers alone participating in a procession and music circle on the beach.

Glow 2011 received a salute from Americans for the Arts.

Glow is produced by the City of Santa Monica and the Santa Monica Arts Foundation.  www.glowsantamonica.org

The *Pop Surrealism* Art Movement

According to Wikipedia—“Lowbrow, or lowbrow art, describes an underground visual art movement that arose in the Los Angeles, California, area in the late 1970s. Lowbrow is a widespread populist art movement with origins in the underground comix world, punk music, hot-rod street culture, and other subcultures. It is also often known by the name pop surrealism. Lowbrow art often has a sense of humor – sometimes the humor is gleeful, sometimes impish, and sometimes it is a sarcastic comment. Most lowbrow artworks are paintings, but there are also toys, digital art, and sculpture.”

LOW BROW AND POP SURREALISM in the Transmedia Artist Amazon Pro Store

There exists an entire niche of USA artists who are not directly associated with the roots of the LA pop surrealism movement yet still consider their art to be Pop Surrealism. Such niche artists are popping up all over the world. Here are a few examples of Pop Surrealist art available from artists on Amazon in the Transmedia Artist store:

Hotel des Arts, The Question of Ex-istence Exhibition

The Question of Ex-istence

Exhibit Reception

Saturday, November 6, 2010

7:00 – 9:00 PM

Hotel Des Arts : San Francisco

447 Bush Street

Questioning Statement

All of the artists featured in this exhibition have answered ‘The Question of Ex-istence’ with their artistic creations. We know this because it is not the label that makes them artists, but that in which they create to represent their existence. The questions we ask are often what unites us as a global community and is part of the fabric in which the human experience is woven. Without the ongoing asking of intelligent questions, we become blanketed in complacency.

The many types of questions that let us grow as real beings,paving the way for the next chapter in our lives are usually, factual, convergent, divergent and evaluative in nature .

Many of the questions in which we encounter are needed to explore abilities and reveal potential to ourselves and others so that we may move forward and endure.

Factual questions are simply straight forward, and are based on facts of awareness, with little processing power they are often answered, with a yes, no, right or wrong.

Convergent questions offer a finite range, of acceptable accuracy with complex analysis, cognition, comprehension and synthesization, make your creative thinking ability strong.

Divergent questions explore alternate perspectives and create variations of correctness, scenarios may be based on logical projection, and the conceptual ability to think long.

Evaluative questions require a high level, of logical cognition and a predefined process, answers let the questioners know, within a comparative framework where they belong.
