Art >> Art Research Is Easier Than I Used to Think

When I was in college and grad school, research was for papers, and papers had to be carefully defended. I had to read all or part of several books and/or articles for each paper and provide a bibliography.

Don’t products that are “handmade” or “made by artists” sound like people should pay more for them? But, too often, people don’t. In fact, a lot of the time the pricing bar for artists is set dangerously low…by artists. It’s one thing for an artist to make something lower-priced than an oil painting, so that more people can afford it. It’s another to sell it at a bargain price. Let me tell you about what I’ve been seeing lately.

The Craftsmanship of Fantasy: Little Stars at Cella Gallery, Classic Monsters at Halloween Town, and Odditorium Detroit at District VII

After a haitus of a couple of weeks to prepare for two gallery shows, I’m very happy to be back here to write about those shows (which just opened in North Hollywood, CA, and Detroit, MI) and also about a third exciting show in Burbank that opened at the same time.

I had a two-week bout of the flu and two trade shows that kept me from concentrating on this blog the way I normally do. I apologize for my haitus and for writing so late about this particular show, because I really think people should go see it while there’s still time!

If you grew up in the 1960s and 70s, you probably remember the Rankin/Bass “Animagic” holiday specials (featuring stop-motion animation with figurines).

Anyone who went to La Luz de Jesus Gallery on October 5 for the opening night of a pre-Halloween art thriller certainly got some of what they came for—skulls and skeletons, a little blood, black lacquer here and there—and I admit that was one of the reasons I went myself.

Blurring the Line Between Fine Art and Illustration: The BLAB Show (BLAB World 2012 Art Exhibition) at Copro Gallery, Bergamot Station, Santa Monica

The night the latest annual BLAB Show opened at Copro Gallery, Bergamot Station was having its 18th anniversary, and the place was insanely mobbed, with live rock music pouring out of wide-open doors and throngs of people winding their way around food trucks and parked cars to get from one gallery to the next. There was plenty of intriguing stuff to see at every gallery, but as soon as I arrived I made a beeline for the BLAB Show because I love it every single year.

On September 1, I went to the opening reception for two concurrent shows at Thinkspace Art Gallery in Culver City. Both shows introduced me to lots of engaging personalities—human, animal, storybook, cartoon, fantasy, historical, religious, and more-—in settings influenced by urban culture. And both shows were apparently made possible by friendship among artists.

I’m a passionate lover of line art; my favorites range from the medieval etchings and drypoints of Albrecht Durer to pages from contemporary comics. So I was really excited to see Color Ink Book’s 4th Anniversary Show at WWA Gallery in Culver City, which opened the night of August 18th.

I am treating this blog like a diary, and will share whatever issues I’m encountering myself as an artist. Like all artists who are working hard to get their work seen, I do research, meet people in the art world, go to shows for artists and crafters, and have business ups and downs. You’ll get to read about that. And you are welcome to give me feedback.

On July 28 and 29 I saw the work of two artists who make three-dimensional pieces with particular loving care and connect to meaningful personal histories with their art. The first, Matjames Metson, is a self-proclaimed “survival artist” who makes art as a way to cope with his own past; the second, Bob Baker, is a marionette maker and performer with 80 years of professional history to celebrate.

dersk_painting3.jpg - 33.64 KbDedication, what does this mean? If you are listening to the radio at the lovers' hour, then it means someone is playing your favorite song and the DJ has just announced your name over the airwaves and your lover is smiling and you are blushing, cause he/or she remembered you loved it.
