Modern art is an interesting term. The novice to the art world is likely to say that modern art refers to all art produced in very recent years -- say, since the turn of the 21st Century. But an art scholar would certainly take issue with that, pointing out that the Modern Art Period is generally considered to have ended in about the 1970’s and that art produced today is more precisely called…Continue

Welcome to my brand-new site and blog. You may know me as Olfacta, author of OlfactaRama, or if you know me personally, by other names.

Digital photography and digital music have a lot in common. The sine wave (look it up) in film photography and analog music is smooth and continuous. The “wave” is digital anything isn’t. It’s…Continue

Il 22 marzo 2013, a Roma, presso l'Ambasciata argentina, si è svolta l'acquisizione di un'opera di Andrea Benetti, da parte dello Stato argentino. L'opera intitolata “Matite spezzate” fa un chiaro riferimento al tema dei Desaparecidos durante il regime militare che si instaurò in Argentina dal 1976 al 1983, guidato dal gen. Videla. Duranti gli anni della dittatura militare vi furono circa 30.000 Desaparecidos, persone scomparse e…Continue

''The Trace functions independently of what I here call the event, by which I could mean the memory of one. Rather, the trace is, for all purposes a letter who's sender is unimportant for the reading of the letter itself. Maybe it is these degrees of separation which give me my sense of depth as the viewer and inter-actor. Maybe through its transmutations the wish is born to follow this trace, or maybe I am simply it's holder. I see myself as the bearer of a question, I enact its forthcoming…Continue

I consider that a picture is artful if it discovers the art that wants to be on my paper. I'm talking about the strong images from within or without that may struggle with me or that may woo me, to find their place at my drawing table. The picture entitled Drawing is a good example of this process at work. When I began this drawing, sitting in front of the window, I could see a curtain, the grid of a window screen, the grid of the window with its panes, and my magnifying…Continue

Presenting Your Work
Presenting your work properly is debatably one of the most important aspects of your professional image. Whether you are applying for exhibitions, jobs, or just trying to sell your work, if it doesn’t look professionally finished, people won’t want it. It might sound like a simple task but the choice of presentation method can either enhance the impact of your work or take away from it. Often it is a fine line.
There are innumerable ways of…Continue

In a lot of respects this is a very similar process to that of applying for funding (see my previous post ‘Funding Applications’ http://www.artists2artists.net/profiles/blogs/funding-applications?xg_source=activity ). It is something that a professional artist will have to go through constantly during their careers as a way of getting their work ‘out…Continue

If anyone has any comments about this post or ideas for developments then that would be greatly appreciated. Otherwise I hope my advice may be of some help to you.
The dreaded funding application. This is something that a large percentage of people try to avoid. You…Continue

The best way to put the difference is philosophy. Quality of stylized elements and principals are not greater or lesser in either form, but are weighted differently.
The idea I see in fine arts is that every aspect of the piece can be weighted equally when critiqued. This means stylized strokes in one are as valuable of the process an other took to make. To be edgy, I see those artists oriented to the fine arts place the concept of elements and principals over how they fit…Continue
