Salt as art…

leave a comment »

Israeli artist Sigalit Landau put a black gown in the Dead Sea for two months in 2014.   Photographer Yotam From recorded the stunning underwater changes  that occurred as salt crystals gradually adhered to the fabric.   The results are simply stunning.   It may not be everyone’s idea of art,  but it’s amazing,  whatever you call it.

Photos into art…

leave a comment »

Twenty-one year old Marina Amaral taught herself to use Photoshop to make color versions of pictures.   In the process,  this Brazil-based digital colorist has learned a lot about history,  as she researches the black and white or sepia images to get the proper colors for the subjects.   I think she has proven herself a  brilliant student  on all points, wouldn’t you?

After 130 years,  one of the art world’s more curious mysteries has been solved,  and we now know  the identity  of the woman who Van Gogh gave his ear to.

Floating art fail…

leave a comment »

Christo always produces interesting,  sometimes astonishing,  art installations.   His latest,  Floating Piers, afforded visitors the opportunity to use a walkway of  200,000 floating  cubes covered in orange fabric floating atop Lake Iseo in northern Italy.   Bad weather forced a temporary closure of the installation,  but it looks as if the artist has another hit on his hands.

Waterfall as art…

leave a comment »

It seems rather odd to have something so marvelously  high-tech  at Versailles,  but you  must admit it’s quite beautiful,  even after you know how it’s done.   After all,  art is art,  isn’t it?

Security ropes…

leave a comment »

…aren’t very secure,  as this artist found out when the  Lego creation  he had spent three days fashioning was accidentally destroyed by a fascinated child who wanted a closer look.   I don’t have an artistic bone in my body,  but if I had spent that long making such an amazing sculpture,  I doubt that I would be as understanding as this artist.

Sand sculptures…

leave a comment »

These don’t  look a bit like the little piles I used to make with my little pail and plastic shovel and some water.    These people are artists  —  they just happen to work with sand instead of paint.
