Hope your week is going well.
I have an A3 mixed media collage which went through a few changes before reaching its final form. I used bits and pieces from the prospect I got at one of the art museums after cutting some of the pics into strips.I also added a part of the security bracelet you need to wear there. Apart from that I used lots of fragments of old letters, stamping, and more or less everything but the kitchen sink.
I am also linking to Moo Mania and More, stripes.
It started out as a piece of card from the back of a paper pad. I painted it with a quick coat of gesso into which I stamped to give some texture, before adding a sprinkle of brushos and a spray of water. I love watching the colours move and change:
Today I wanted to show more photos from the exhibition,
'Behind the curtain' at the art museum. In the brochure
they write, 'The starting point of this exhibition is the tale of 2 ancient painters who sought to outdo each other's virtuosity in the art of trompe l'oeil. While Zeuxis, however, was merely able to fool the pigeons, which attempted to peck at the grapes he had painted. Parrhasius succeeded in actually deceiving the eye of his rival, who attempted to draw the curtain painted by Parrhasius to reveal the picture assumed to be behind it. The fascinating interplay between concealing and showing, veiling and revealing.....is shown in this exhibition which shows work from 6 centuries'
My fave painting is the one by Titian:
This one is by Christo, who usually packs objects and buildings in masses of fabric:
This is from Hans-Peter Feldmann- a curtain!
I love this self portrait from Liotard (1770):
Raphaelle Peale's painting from 1822 is called
'Venus rising from the sea - a deception'
Here some photos from the outside of the museum complex which is near the Rhine:
Have a great day, take care,
and thanks a lot for coming by:
