Friday art

Hi Everybody!

For Art Journal Journey, light and darkness, and for
Paint Party Friday I have another hybrid/ mixed media  piece. The background has been painted and collaged, and the figures painted with a home made template. I used a fancy mask to add it digitally to a water coloured background.




I am sharing some more pictures taken at the K20 museum
for art of the 20th century.
I love the spacious, white rooms. That climbing frame is 
supposed to be art, too....


Ellsworth Kelly:



 Jasper Johns:

 Kenneth Noland:

 An assemblage from Robert Rauschenberg called
'Inside out'





 Sam Francis:

Some general views of the room taken from the stairs:



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

  4. Your page is fantastic Valerie and has such feeling.

    The artwork today is a bit difficult to understand as a lot of looks so simple. The door one is fascinating

  10. Your AJJ entry is beautiful today. I'm a big fan of silhouettes, so this piece spoke to me, as did the sentiment.

    I'm in LOVE with that Rauschenberg assemblage. It is stunning. I would love to make something that intense. I am also a BIG fan of Jasper Johns, and was so glad to see this piece. Thanks for sharing these latest pieces with us.

  12. Beautiful meaningful piece today, I love the wording you have chosen! The art work is fabulous, I love the modern and contempory art - the "Inside Out" is so clever and everytime you look at it there is something else to see :-). Going back for another look :-). Happy Friday and weekend! J :-)

  36. A wonderful page, a beautiful quote, and I love those silhouettes. Especially the woman reminds me a bit of the Avengers. Great images of that exhibition too. Maybe a bit too modern for me, but it looks definitely worth visiting.
