Back in March I sent a piece to a mail art show in the Netherlands. I liked that piece, which was titled "Self Mailer: Address Unknown," so much that I decided to try to recreate, re-capture it in some way. Didn't turn out exactly like I intended. This group of photos shows steps along the way -- gluing, scraping, rearranging, scraping, sanding, glazing and on and on.  In the top left corner is the original mail art piece.  In the bottom right corner is the final…

art and films

Stumbled on this site recently -- Open Culture.

This LINK is for the Art section.  Some wonderful film/videos. From Wassily Kandinsky in the act of painting, to a case being made for European cave art being the earliest form of cinema, to David Hockney in the act of painting. My favorite so far is A Brief History of  …

appropriation, fair use, theft


Here's a link to an article in the New York Times about appropriation and fair use in the visual arts in a digital age.  The artist, Richard Prince, lost the case in Federal District Court but is appealing.
