TheArtist. ConradJon Godly. 1962, Switzerland.Painter. ConradJon Godly’snature paintings are of a sublime that escapes romanticization. Their spirit is the result of ambitions beyond beauty. Thick layers of oil paint are applied onto the canvas.
Talk about chunky painting. These pieces by artist Jon Godly are unreal. I can’t tell if it’s paint or frosting. Either way they are sublime to look at and take in. I love the thicker palette strokes similar to Van Gogh’simpasto paintings on canvas. This ain’t no watercolor. This is Spectacular!
We went to see the “Her Paris” art exhibit this week here in Denver. Truly mesmerizing paintings from women artists from the 19th Century. We always hear of the male impressionist painters, but rarely the women. There are over 80 paintings from different female artists on display during the exhibit that runs from now until Jan 14, 2018. Go if you can. It is a treat to the eyes and soul.
An unlikely, yet, possibly seemingly person. . .. Although, Not particularly much of . . . Anything. At first glance. A wig? Odd hair? Odd glasses? Eccentric? Soft Spoken? So why? Why and how did Andy Warhol come to change the landscape of Fine Art, and ultimately define what Pop Art is? Sure, there is Lichtenstein. Jasper Johns . . . Robert Rauschenberg . . . And I’m sure . . . Others. But, let’s be honest . . …. Did any of these OTHER artists get you off? When you saw art, and did your own bit of recon (because you were now newly minted into the art world) did any of these other artists get you off? In the pleasure zone? I doubt it. Lichtenstein. Sure. He had his own bit going on. But invariably, like EVERYONE, you landed on Warhol. His prints. His images . . . Etc.
What role did art play in the quest for equality and the affirmation of black identity in segregated America? The exhibition pays tribute to the African-American artists and thinkers who contributed, during a century and a half-long struggle, to blurring this discriminatory “color line”. As record numbers of visitors’ flock to the new…

The artist Banksy is known for elaborate hijinks, from masking his (or her) identity to his latest destructive, headline-grabbing stunt that’s now driving up the price of already expensive artwork.
On Friday night, Banksy’s “Girl With Balloon” sold for $1.37 million at a Sotheby’s auction in London. Moments after the last hammer hit the podium, a shredder stealthily installed in the frame ribboned the painting, as stunned bidders watched in shock (a few in amusement) and assistants struggled to get the work off the wall and prevent further damage.
Banksy later posted a video of the self-destructing painting on Instagram in which he claimed he equipped the frame with a shredder in case the painting was ever sold. Presumably, the frame shown in the video is the one that was holding “Girl With Balloon” on Friday, though it’s worth noting that with Banksy, things are rarely exactly as they seem.
