Latest News about art and Collectors



I read in a well known Art News Paper ( on-line) version that 'FACEBOOK'
was the latest 'IN' place to be if you were an Artist or Art Collector, Dealer or Gallery.

In the few weeks I have been ON 'facebook' I have noticed a lot of action in these areas and groups and noticed all the established artists chatting so openly about their daily lives and contacts.

The Artists don't even say things in private, just so openly so it lets others know who 'HAVE' been on the phone and showing interest in their works.

I find it very open and it is like 'THESE' well known artists are using 'FACEBOOK to bragg about their lives and contacts.

These people are so open and after sending them friends request they accept me like I'm their long lost friend.

How strange, but it is a place not to ignore and if you 'ARE' a serious artist, you should be here on facebook.

It could be a passing Fad until the next best thing comes along, but for now, I am staying with it and watching.

These days 'ART' is about networking and looking at the great raw talent that is out there.

The Art World is changing and so are buyers and sellers, where it was a buyers market, places like 'FACEBOOK' will now make the art world realise and realise soon that the 'SELLER' has the power now, like where 'ART' should be.

Auctions and Galleries will lose the power and it will become up to the artist to place their price again on the work, finding the true artists and finding the true art with the true value.

I have created some great groups on 'FACEBOOK' with links to all my networks, feel 'FREE to join in, and it is 'Free' to join my networks'.

When I ask a client if they have a work of art:

How do they realize it’s an actual artwork?

Answers can be of the most varied, in part because they identified with what the work transmits masterfully, like the color of a landscape. You will also discover more pragmatic approaches which are understood as the works added value being the reflection of an intrinsic value associated to genuine artistic value beyond personal taste.

All answers are valid, particularly when it comes to personal perceptions which establish empathy in time with a growing and enriching artistic expression. Nevertheless, my answer is that there is something beyond the above which relates with the artwork transcendence. In other words, when an artistic manifestation in the form of a painting, sculpture or print appropriates a space and the spectator incorporates such experience, never again that person will be the same one before…

Perplex to my observation, their immediate reply is why? Something to which I respond that the usual praxis is the habit of observing artworks is through the appreciation of its formal elements in line of its objectivity, but when an authentic work of art transcends within the spectator, it’s because its message is beyond formality.

Thus, it’s the moment when a work of art begins to observe back at you!  

      



Understanding the generic definition of painting as a coloured drawing, digital painting in contrast to all form of traditional painting can be characterized in two singular aspects. The first one, taken from the model of indirect method, establishes a particular process of additive and subtractive relationships through the superimposition and interaction of multiple layers subject not only to the phenomena of reflected light, such is the case of traditional veil painting, but also projected light. On the other hand, the aleatoric nature of digital process involves by definition, the use of second generation image. This fusion of a pictorial work through a concept of indirect method and graphic work through the use of second generation images opens a new field of visual exploration where its versatility has predetermined in the last decades, a creative pool of exponential growth.


The images above illustrate a basic methodology of how to begin understanding the fundamentals of digital painting as an image building process. In its initial phase, the artist has created a series of mixed media drawings on polycarbonate film specially formulated to be receptive to a wide range of drawing materials such as: graphite, charcoal, prisma color, rubbing ink, India ink, Tusche ink, litho crayon and any form of pigment and vehicle which reacts to the hydroscopic qualities inherent to the granulation of the mentioned substrate.    
The monochromatic images or original drawings on the top left have been divided in two genres. The first two columns are washes where depending on the viscosity of its vehicle, the pigment will reticulate in different patterns. From the old traditions of continuous tone lithography, Tusche ink (high density pigment ink) has been the trademark of many artists in how to achieve various forms of textures and tectonic qualities. The same way we can observe above, the difference between a lacquer thinner wash and turpentine wash with alcohol applications. In contrast, the right hand columns exemplify subtractive techniques with charcoal drawing and #1-#7calibrated litho crayon halftone drawing.


In the lower portion, we observe the same drawings which have been digitalized in quadtone modality where the artist assigns to each channel a specific chromatic and tonal value. Understanding the nature of digital work with millions of colours the possibilities are infinite. In order to schematize the process, the artist divides tonal scale in four areas, shadows or low tones, lower halftones, higher halftones and highlights. By curvature effect each tonal area of the image is assigned to a specific value. In this preliminary stage of digital colorations, the artist’s decisions are somehow predetermined by the additive and subtractive relationships which will take place later on.
 

The final image on the right hand side or B.A.T., abbreviation taken from the French expression: “bon-à-tirer” meaning: “right to print” is an example when all four drawings have been superimposed and interacted by layers. The multiple relationships of layer interaction which can be established in addition to the use of mask, filters and tonal modulation constitutes the true potential creativity inherent to the use of second generation images. 




GASCO Energy Sculpture / Santiago, Chile 2000:

In
virtue of GASCO corporate building remodeling located at Santo Domingo
Street Nº 1061 at the hands of Izquierdo Lehmann Architects back in
1999, the company’s board commissioned a sculpture allusive to the
energy by man in his quest to survival.


The
river stone bed is a metaphor to the energy contained by Earth’s
natural resources, the steel legs are man’s intervention and the marble
sphere represents pure energy.

 




TERRITORIA 3000 Cultural Project / Santiago, Chile 2006:

In
virtue of new business centers realized for Santiago as a future
financial capital in Latin America, Territoria real-estate commissioned
project proposal which contemplated the buildings cultural impact
amongst its neighboring edifications projected in front of Peru Square,
known as Territoria 3.000.


The
project proposal contemplated 8 double sided free hanging murals where
each module was 9.60 mt in height and 4.80 mt across. Outside the
building’s perimeter, 8 sculptures were projected with 4 in the
buildings front façade and 4 totemic figures in its east side courtyard.



Chile Borderland / Philippi Museum / Valdivia, Chile 2008

The
works which are part of the Museum Philippi collection correspond to
morphological studies of Chilean landscape titled “Chile Borderland”.
The specific artist interest to exhibit at a regional natural history
museum was the possibility of creating an event to promote and amplify
the country’s identity.






Spirits of the Mind Mural / Santiago College / Santiago, Chile 2012:

With
the moving of Santiago College School to its new campus at Los
Trapenses, it became imperative the creation of an allegoric artwork
capable of captivating the alma mater of the original school campus. For
these purpose a large scale mural was thought-out to be installed at
the new Dining Hall. The iconographic proposal was based on an
architectural survey of the old campus combined with a landscape
morphological study of the new campus location at La Dehesa Valley whose
distinctive landmark is the Manquehue Hill.

 

The
above is closely related to Guillermo Rosende’s master plan, the school
design architect where the orientation and shape of more than 10
buildings which constitute the new campus, are in relation and
proportion to the surrounding landscape.






History of Chilean Mining Mural / Concepción, Chile 2005:

In commemoration of Chilean Large Mining Bicentennial (1905 – 2005), the mural was inaugurated at the Metallurgical Engineering new building. Mural project sponsored by Chilean Mining Bureau, CODELCO’s El Teniente Division and the University of Concepción. 




The Andes: Vertical Column of America / Santiago, Chile 2010

Part of the artist studio informative work at a public level, is the creation of exhibiting projects which allow contextualizing the artwork within different spaces accessible to the urban pedestrian. The above includes installations which in the case of the work in reference, it was realized with the collaboration of Chilean artist, Hugo Marín.








Franco Ballotta Design Project / Parque Arauco, Santiago, Chile
One
of the main challenges with Franco Ballotta men’s store was to discover
a unifying element between the design of menswear tradition and a
historical past whose distinctive trademark was Italian design clothes.
The main icon was a mural with the equestrian portrait of Marcus
Aurelius the Roman governor, Pompey. So much the store’s front window,
exhibition furniture and store logo were all based on Roman Republican
funeral architecture.




Saint George Mural Project, Isidora Building 1999:


Equestrian
apology where central image corresponds to s XIII Novgorod’s Saint
George flanked by Marcus Aurelius triumphant entries and Durer
anatomical equestrian studies. In the upper section in the form of a
continuous frieze, the general composition is crowned by a procession of
Teutonic Knights.


Together
with the mural, Bolivian Mahogany hardwood board of director’s chair
was designed, the same wood utilized for the mural’s framework.   




Casa Irina Mural Project / Curaumilla, Chile 2008

The work in collaboration with architects, designers, landscapers, etc. is a crucial aspect in order to conceive large format work for residential or more private spaces. In the case of Casa Irina, the project was realized in coordination with the owner; architect Andrés Zauschkevich, where the house’s landscape morphological surrounding had an important role in the design of the mural. The image was worked in 12 different stages, being the latter one use as the final image for the mural.




El Golf & Nueva Las Condes district office remodelling

Understanding
the new quality standards in the real state sector characterized by
Class A buildings, the mounting and emplacement of artwork have an added
value at the moment of implementing exclusive designs different from
more conventional framing. Amongst the different challenges, none
polycarbonate or glass protection frames were made with large format
prints. The main objective was to emphasize the velvety surface inherent
to Intaglio.


The
new proposal for office space is in coordination with Iván Ojeda from
FIC Constructions whose clientele is characterized by the office space
in reference.






Atelier Alexander Sutulov Limited Editions

Small format serial work together with serial work on paper in general, is subject to a more intimate approach from the spectator’s perspective. The more delicate character associated to printmaking halftones for example, makes graphic work highly descriptive. The artist studio not only emphasizes on the above, but also, all curatorial work regarding edition printing, anywhere from its documentation like the emission of authenticity certificates describing the works genesis all the way to its final presentation with elegant artist design portfolios.





 Atelier Alexander Sutulov Editorial Projects

Taking into account the studio’s graphic work, editorial projects designed by the artist are a complement where additionally an iconographic research work is developed which speaks of for example, the richness of different historical periods in the world of art. That’s how in the book devoted to the cult of the Sacred Heart, author María Loreto Marín Estevez: “A Spring of Love & Mercy: The Heart of Christ”, is a compendium of more than 500 color pages where not only historical Christian Art iconography is being rescued, but also, they are being visually contextualize in accordance to the book’s conceptual overview.

                   Hi

Not sure if you've heard of us?!?! ... 
www.showcase-cities.com ... http://blog.showcase-cities.com/ ... please also find a short extract below which explains what we're all about...

"Showcase Cities offers superbly presented and beautifully lit commission free exhibition space to artists from all walks of life. Each event presents a fantastic opportunity to see up-and-coming artists display new ideas, new work and new styles.  Providing a regular, affordable and much needed platform, supporting emerging artists, enabling them to showcase work, generate instant exposure and make those all important commission free sales.  Embracing all styles, since our first show in June 2009 we’ve seen artists exhibit everything from Fine Art and Photography to Sculpture and Fashion Design."

Last months show (Feb 15th @ RICHMIX, E1 6LA) reflected a fantastic start to the year with artists Mark Hayward, Tatiana May, Carlos Martyn Burgos, Megan Brewer and Kimbal Bumstead all making sales - earning themselves over £1200.00 on the night commission free !!!  The atmosphere was electric with record attendance seeing 300+ visitors/buyers arriving and a fantastic live musical performance from Anja McCloskey + her band.

With the Olympics almost here - London's Eastend has never been so vibrant and we expect our shows to get busier and busier :)  Exhibition spaces are very limited at the moment, however we've just had a space come available for our March 21st group exhibition, and we would like to give you priority - its a centrally located and beautifully lit (see attached) - would suit your work perfectly.

We suspect this spot will only be available for a short space of time - so get back to us as soon as possible if you would like to be part of the exhibition? - its going to be another good one ;) ... should you have any further questions about any aspect of how we run our shows, please do ask!

Kind regards,

Blair

registro fotográfico montaje Edificio Neruda, Nueva Las Condes, 19 de noviembre de 2011

Tierra Pacífica” / Serie Los Andes: columna vertebral de América
Tinta Ultrachrome sobre tela (2.40 x 8.00 mt)

Estudio morfológico de la Cordillera de Los Andes donde se aprecia en su macizo central, el Cerro el Plomo y sus formaciones colindantes que circunscriben el valle de Santiago del Nuevo Extremo. Hacia el frente, se pueden apreciar formaciones rocosas que caracterizan el litoral central, propias de una geografía accidentada cuyas capas tectónicas son de origen volcánico. En el centro de ambas composiciones surgen ondulaciones con aguadas de Tusche (pigmento de alta densidad) que sugieren de manera inusitada el Océano Pacífico. Lo anterior nos hace reflexionar sobre la prehistoria geofísica de Chile, donde el valle central fue en algún momento parte del océano.



montaje mural Tierra Pacífica / Edificio Neruda

Pacific Land” / The Andes: Vertical Column of America Series
Ultrachrome ink on museum canvas (2.40 x 8.00mt)

The Andes Mountains morphological study where in its central view, El Plomo summit can be recognized and its surrounding mountain range encompassing the valley of Santiago del Nuevo Extremo. In the foreground, rock formations can be observed which identify Chilean central coast line inherent to dramatic landform whose tectonic layers are of volcanic origin. In the middle of both compositions, Tusche water washes undulations make reference to the Pacific Ocean. The previous is a reflection upon prehistoric Chilean geography, where at one point in time, the central valley was part of the ocean.

Tierra Volcánica” / Serie Los Andes: columna vertebral de América
Tinta Ultrachrome sobre tela (2.40 x 8.00 mt)   

Visión apologética del mundo Andino como una cultura volcánica. Si bien la actividad volcánica se extiende a lo largo de toda la Cordillera de Los Andes, la singularidad de Chile está en primer lugar por su número de volcanes, más de 2.900 de los cuales 80 de ellos están activos. Junto con lo anterior, el gran número de volcanes están ensimismados sobre un abismo que es el Océano Pacífico, cuya cuenca está prácticamente en su totalidad bañada por la corriente de Humboldt. Lo descrito hace que Chile tenga una temperatura específica baja en una cantidad extraordinaria de latitudes. Consecuentemente, es la razón principal de por qué nuestro país tiene uno de los mejores climas del mundo.



montaje mural Tierra Volcánica / Edificio Neruda

Volcanic Land” / The Andes: Vertical Column of America Series
Ultrachrome ink on museum canvas (2.40 x 8.00mt)

Apologetic vision of the Andean World in the form of a volcanic culture. Although volcanic activity constitutes great part of The Andes mountain range, the particularity of Chile is in the first place, the number of volcanoes, more than 2.900 where 80 of them are currently active. Together with the above, a great number of volcanoes are absorbed by the Pacific Ocean Rim abyss, whose basin is practically in its totality washed by the Humboldt Current. The described, allows Chile a low specific temperature throughout an extraordinary amount of latitudes. Consequently, it’s the principal reason why the country has one of the best climates in the world.    



Vista Nueva Las Condes 

Los murales anteriormente descritos creados por el artista chileno, Alexander Sutulov, tienen como propósito introducir un nuevo concepto de instalaciones permanentes para espacios públicos tanto institucionales como corporativos. En el caso específico de Nueva Las Condes, el artista tiene un especial interés dado su unicidad como espacio urbano. En una publicación reciente en Visual Artbeat Magazine, una publicación especializada en arte en Salzburgo, Alexander Sutulov da cuenta sobre el futuro que le depara a la ciudad de Santiago como capital financiera en Latinoamérica y lo importante que resulta entender el posicionamiento de Chile frente el mundo. En este sentido, gran parte de su obra ha estado dedicada precisamente a la identidad de nuestro país y su implementación en espacios estratégicos. Frente lo anterior, el artista resume el complejo de edificios corporativos en Nueva Las Condes  como la respuesta más coherente al nuevo paradigma; lo cual invita y posibilita exhibir obras que no solamente hablan sobre nuestra identidad, sino además, se proyectan con fuerza hacia un futuro que singulariza a Chile como una estrella en el Hemisferio Sur.

The described murals created by Chilean Artist, Alexander Sutulov are part of a new concept of public permanent installations for corporate and institutional entities. In the specific case of Nueva Las Condes financial district, the artist has a special interest considering its urban planning uniqueness. At a recent art magazine publication in Salzburg, Visual Artbeat Magazine; Alexander Sutulov writes about the future of Santiago as a financial capital for Latin-America and the importance of understanding Chile’s positioning vis-à-vis the rest of the world. In this respect, great part of his work has been precisely dedicated to Chile’s identity and its implementation for strategic public spaces. All things considered, the artist resumes the business center building complex in Nueva Las Condes, as the new paradigm’s most coherent respond; which in return, invites and makes possible exhibiting artwork which not only speaks of our identity as a whole, but also, projects itself with a singularizing force where Chile emerges as a bright new star in the Southern Hemisphere.
