Exploring the World of Contemporary Art by indianartideas on Fri Apr 21, 2017 1:00 am
Collecting art is an art in itself. Art can be a challenging task for those who aren't aware of the various genres being offered by it. One of such fields, which is attractive yet overwhelming, is contemporary art. In the most basic of terms, any art which has been created post-1960s can be considered as a part of the contemporary art era.


As art is all about exploration, contemporary paintings are no different. If this arena of art is to your liking but you’re a bit intimidated then, here are four characteristics of contemporary art at your rescue. A thorough consideration of these will surely help you in exploring the world of contemporary art.

• All shapes and sizes:
You most certainly would have heard of the term that beauty comes in all sizes. Well, contemporary art is no different. Right from a sculpture as small as your finger to ...

Man accused of licking woman’s toes says DNA on her foot was fro by Soyablack123 on Wed Sep 06, 2017 4:29 am
A man accused of licking a woman’s toes has been cleared of sexual assault after telling police the DNA found on her foot was because he was sneezing.
Shaun Smith stood accused of leaving saliva on the woman’s foot when he knelt down in front of her and kissed her bare feet.
A court heard how the 54-year-old was repeatedly told to stop by his victim.
He also tried to put his hand up her skirt, before pinning her down on a sofa and kissing her neck and chest, the court was told.
But Smith denied there had been any sexual touching during the encounter.
When confronted by police with forensic evidence, he said he was suffering from a heavy cold and the saliva on her foot was actually the result of a sneeze.
Maidstone Crown Court in Kent heard he also claimed his alleged victim had been rubbing herself against him and must have planted his DNA on her feet.
Smith, of Sheerness, in Kent, denied sexual assault over the incident in September 2015.
Today, a jury of eight men and four women found him...

Lets strart with this.."Oh What Slumbers" by jenn_iam on Tue Feb 11, 2014 12:53 pm
Not just art is captured in the minds eye of an Artist. The world, the life which dwell on it, and the experiences we encounter each day feed into that creativity generator, that is within. If well exercised, its output is profound, unbridled and vast.
A Prose or missive...to stir that inner Artist, the dreamer, the child, the real you. I titled it:

"Oh what Slumbers"
by Jennifer Erin ~2013

Oh, what slumbers await
the yearning languid eyes to those quiet moments
when the curtains are pulled back to the vivid nuances of one’s imagination.
A compilation if you will
in a dis-conjoined tale of recollection;
of propheticism.
Wake but in a daze of wonder, if you must.
Remember, interpretations within the symbolism of the Id,
the greater you, that only you can hear.
Do you hear?

Checklist For A Successful Painting by RichardDevine on Mon Apr 28, 2014 9:29 am
For a painting to be successful it must be able to engage the viewer and keep his or her interest. It must have the right combination of elements and arranged in a way that keeps the viewer from walking on to the next painting without any further thought. It must draw the viewer in and make the viewer become a participant in it.
There are many good books out there on composition and I have a few. Well, more than a few. I try to go through them before each new painting, so that hopefully I retain enough to put together a nice composition. I recently condensed thoughts from these books into a checklist for myself that I could use when putting the composition together.
My process runs along these lines. First I refresh myself on the most important elements of composition – my Checklist. Then I do some small, quick thumbnail sketches to get a general idea of what I want the painting to look like. The size varies but I generally make them 3” by 5” to 5” by 7”. It may be that I already have a ph...
