#artQuotes , Robert Indiana // music, Jimi Hendrix “Once I Had a Woman” —
“Robert Indiana (born Robert Clark; 13 September 1928 – 19 May 2018) was an American artist associated with the pop art movement. His "LOVE" print, first created for the Museum of Modern Art's Christmas card in 1965, was the basis for his 1970 Love sculpture and the widely distributed 1973 United States Postal Service "LOVE" stamp. He created works in media including paper (silk screen) and Corten steel.” #artHistory via Wikipedia
We’re doing it. So many happenings. You remind me to slow down and reflect. Our relationship with our self, alone, is the most important. The closest we can get to the source within us all. Back to the happenings. The way you looked at my work the first time we met, reminded me of my infatuation of what comes through me. So captivated by all the things that reveal themselves in time and awareness. And seeing you disappear when you paint your self inspires me. Constantly learning about you even though I’m writing this in the kitchen while you paint away in the studio 😆 I look forward to traveling the world with you through our creative gift. I’ll see you in just a few seconds, love you! Bye 😻
Detail of Rajan Krishnan’s “Golden Fruits, 2013” on display at @aicongallery in NYC until June 23rd. —
Rajan M. Krishnan (1967-2016) “As he grew in confidence and his coffers grew, his canvases became bigger and his works found positions in top galleries, homes and museums across the world. While his works went all over (Singapore Art Fair, India Art Fair, New York to name a few), he made a conscious choice to remain rooted to the land he was born and bred in. The subjects of his heart remained true to the soil, the images that had enriched his life as a child and as a young man. The mango, the sparrow, the jack fruit tree, the pineapple, the railway track, the red flags, the protestors in demonstrations, Marx…Kerala remained important to him.” (Excerpt via The Hindu)
Let’s talk about Conceptual Art
Conceptual art - The art for which the idea (or concept) behind the work is more important than the finished art object. Duchamp is considered to be the father of Conceptual art. He challenged the very notion of what is art, his first "readymades" sent shock waves across the art world that can still be felt today.
Seeking an alternative to representing objects in paint, Duchamp began presenting objects themselves as art. Readymades were mass-produced, commercially available, often utilitarian objects, and he designated them as art.
The porcelain urinal signed as “R. Mutt” named Fountain, is widely considered as an early example of Conceptual art but it took nearly five decades for it to be recognized both as an artwork and one of the pioneering works of Conceptual art. It was created in 1917 for an exhibition of the Society of Independent Artists in New York but it was rejected. The original was lost but Duchamp created several replicas in the 1960s which are today on display worldwide.
