Wonderful art

Hi Everybody!

After visiting the K20 art museum yesterday,  I visited
the K21 today, which shows art of the 21st century.
I saw a lot of fun things there, and although not everything was
to my taste, it was really interesting. It is housed in a wonderful
old building, which has been beautifully modernised and adapted. I
will show photos in the next days.

For Art Journal Journey, Indian Summer, and for 
Paint Party Friday, hosted by Eva and Kristin, I have an A3
 mixed media piece. The background was brayered, stamped and collaged, using
various pieces stamped on tissue, and 2 of 'my' men, who were stamped with various quotes. I added some feathers found by the castle moat.








And now for the wonderful art - some of the paintings I was able to see yesterday at the K20:

Andy Warhol:


Gilbert and George:


Andreas Gursky:
And I'm in the picture too....


A fun installation by Lawrence Weiner:



Paul Klee (with my shadow again!):

Pierre Bonnard:

Amadeo Modigliani:






Paul Klee again:



Franz Marc:


I will show more bit by bit as I get the photos sorted, but it was wonderful
to be there. Even better, I have a season ticket for the rest of the year
and can go as often as I want to to see more....and there is lots more there to see!

Have a great day, take care,
and thanks a lot for coming by!

  3. Your AJJ is terrific with so much of interest and great depth. I like the colour scheme too, it's unusual.
    Great trip round the museum, I am especially intrigued by the last painting, and I always love Paul Klee.

  11. An amazing page you created Valerie with so many elements to admire and take in.

    The gallery you visited has such wonders and your favourite artist as well, I bet you wanted to leap in the air with glee though you do look still in your reflection. Thank you for sharing the experience. I feel excited and I wasn't even there in person.

    Have a good day

    Love Chrissie xx

  12. Another great page with so many details and surprises. AH! The museum - to be with such greatness. The Paul Klees' are incredible, but then I am also in love with the Modiglianis'! If you could choose - which one would you hang in your home? Hugs, Donna

    1. I would choose Modigliani, and I have several of his paintings hanging here - but of course, just ones I copied!

  13. Love your new 'header' - the fairy in the tree is a great touch (or is it not new but simply that I'm slow?)

    Art galleries can be awe inspiring or mind-blowingly puzzling, don't you think?

    The usual nice start to the day, Valerie, thank you; makes my steaming mug of tea a treat :-)

  14. I love all the natural details in your piece today Valerie. Its a great piece. I love your abstract people and heads when you use them. And I enjoyed seeing all the art. My favorite is the cats, but it is fun to see the Modigliani pieces, since you introduced him to me in your own inspired pieces. Can't wait to see the next installment of art! HugsErika

  15. Deine Mixed Media Seite ist herrlich -- mindestens reif für das K21 Museum... wo es anscheinend tolle Exponate gibt! Fein dass Du die Dauerkarte für den Rest des Jahres hast! Spitze!
    Hab einen schönen Donnerstag!

  16. Your collage is wonderful, Val and I am so glad I could browse through the art of last century's masters on your site. I love early 20th century painters very much. Thank you!

  17. Your latest AJJ entry is fantastic. I love the subtle colors you achieved with your brayer. This is wonderful.


    Speaking of wonderful, I am in LOVE. I'm glad you can visit again and again, and show us more modern art, something I don't get to see much of. I am in love with that Warhol and Klee. Of course, I also adore the various Modiglianis you shared. Have a super Thursday.

  18. Oh wait. I think my favorite is Franz Marc, an artist I've never heard of before, but love his cats.

    ReplyDelete
  19. Wow! Your piece was subtly spooky.
    Which picture did you like the best? I, of course, liked the cats:)
    Hugs.
    (Thanks for checking the blog for me.)

  20. I enjoyed the art review very much, thank you for sharing.....but I really prefer your AJJ page over their work.......must be the feathers...*grin*

  21. Oh Valerie, your piece is mesmerizing. So much there, just magical. Love this. I think I liked it much more than any of the ones you showed from your museum visit!

  25. Dein Kunstwerk gefällt mir von all den gezeigten am besten. Es könnte auch mit voller Berechtigung dort hängen. Nach dir gefällt mir dann noch Franz Marc, danach kämen Andreas Gursky und Andy Warhol. Mein voller Ernst! ;) Freut mich daß du so viel Spaß dort hattest und Dauerkarte finde ich auch gut, gerade wenn es so viel zu sehen gibt. Da kann man dann häppchenweise genießen.
    Liebe Grüße

  33. Wonderful page, love the rusty feel it has. Looks like a great exhibition!

  34. I love your mixed media page, especially the brown colours. Subdued neutrals are so beautiful. The prince or the king by Paul Klee was my fave painting when I saw an exhibition of Klee's paintings at the Auckland Art Gallery, many years ago. I stood in front of it for ages, drinking it in.

  35. Thanks for the pictures Valerie - your art is always interesting! I love the Pierre Bonnard!!!
