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 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:

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.
