12 April 2014

New on Virtual Museum

It is pointless to display here all added works with exceptional contemporaray art, let's give some examples.
5 works by Kim Joon, of which three in the chapter "Surrealism IV" (link) and two in the chapter "Where people, plants and animals look different" (link).

Margriet Smulders is photographing flowers in a total different way. She makes half abstract pieces of art looking as paintings with a special and fine texture. (link)

Some styles seem to be rooted in elder movements, as in a parallel universe. In this way, the works by Lawrie Dignan, made with pen and ink, look a forced pointillism (link). James Cobb resembles a digital Miro, in two chapters: "Surrealism IV" (link) and "Symmetrical art III"(link).

 

The city views by Alejandro Quincoces are painted in a texture witch emphasises the chaos of our contemporary metropoles (link).

7 April 2014

My new abstract work

Back to the abstract art. A wonderful solid made with the Sculpture Generator was brought to via Incendia by means of Meshlab, and rendered. In Photoshop this render was processed in several ways, including the Mehdi plugin, in combination with work I made in Apophysis.

Virtual Museum now counts 68 pages because some pages did become too crowded. Surrealism has now filled page 51 but even has 16 works added on the new page 63 (link). Two examples: Michael Whelan and the very funny Freddo Sacaro.

 

"Shorely, from endless seas to ponds II" now has a continuation on page 64, "Trees III" on page 65 and "Towers III" on page 66 (link). As an example a work from Vytautas Laisonas

There are also quite some new works in the chapter "Women, portraits and symbols VI " on page 61 (link). Here (smaller) a work from Arantza Sestayo painted on the tablet, and by Christine Comyn painted on canvas, two very different styles.

 

Last but not least a very special work by hgjart, one of the added works in "Symmetrical art III" on page 58 (link)

Mandolin Concert from 16 March

As soon as we arrived I was delighted by the place. Several huge magnolias were fully flourishing before the front in wonderful architecture. It was more beautiful then photos can reveal. The more for the art deco interior which I couldn't get decently on the photo. The cooperation was flowing harmonious. The stage was a bit tight to perform the last piece with a mandolin orchestra of 50 musicians. The “Song of Japanese Autumn” has been played several times in the past, but it always moves. I was also happily surprised by the work by Jan Van der Roost, played by the Brasschaat mandolin orchestra. The rhythmical pieces played by the madolin group of Gerda Abts where very strong. The Greek rembetika played by the quartet Markatatou has touched everyone, the voice of Sofia Kakali is extraordinary. This was a concert not to forget soon. And very important: good cooperation radiates warmth.

The photos are on the site (link).

Nieuw bij Virtueel Museum

It's impossible to overview all 279 works which has been added to Virtual Museum, so we make a choice.
First a lot of new abstract works on page 47. A revelation are the works made with bee wax, but also the speed photos of spurting paint mixed with oil by Albert Seveso.

 

Also in "Between figurative and abstract" on page 53 several works have been added, such as the works by David Brewster, rude and very dynamic strokes alternate precise drawing.

Very remarkable are a number of paintings made with utmost precision. The paintings by Serge Marshennikov on page 49 as well as the photorealist works by Richard Estes on page 55 do look as photos, but they are not, they are real paintings! Also extremely precise are the reconstructed plants by Macoto Murayama on page 59.

 

Also quite extraordinary are the "insects" by Mark Oliver on the pages 25 and 58, constructed with mechanical objects.

Also exceptional digital works are not lacking, such as this work by Daniel Dociu on page 50.

New concert in March!

This is a work made by J.F. for the next concert by Gerda Abts on the 16th March 2014, a benefit concert for the acquisition of a professional mandolin for students at the Antwerp Music Conservatory. In the Conservatory itself it is forbidden to give benefit concerts, so another location had to be found. Thanks to the Music Academy Wijnegem-Zoersel it became the chapel of the Bethaniënhuis at Sint-Antonius-Zoersel.

The building is worth a visit on its own. Originally build as a new monastery with a psychiatry clinic in 1922 in Art Deco style. It is been renewed ever since. Bought by the municipality it now serves as administrative centre, cultural centre, etc...

 

The repertory of the concert is extensive and the musicians are numerous; beside Gerda Abts and Pieter Van Tichelen also students of Gerda Abts at the conservatory, and pupils of Gerda Abts and Marte De Leeuw form diverse music Academies. Supplemented with the BMO directed by Marcel De Cauwer. More info on gevoeligesnaar.be on the page calender. Info about the musicians on the page biography.
