I made a mistake in that I posted that in this 'artist' thread. I guess 'artists' can be pretty broad in different fields but I actually meant to post that somewhere else.

I couldnt locate a really good place to put this kind of music but still..I didnt mean for it to go here. I noticed that the Concierto de Aranjuez link didnt go.

I think that it is not even about artists or art but how diverse people are. Some people have a gift with words. I feel a little bit jealous but I love reading. :) Others express themselves through music. I express myself through art and dance as I can feel it in my every cell. So, enjoy and I bet others will enjoy listening to your music.:)

Thank you; very kind and understanding words.

Music is great isnt it ? No matter where on this planet nearly everyone can relate to music whether its in the Uyghur region, Korea, Argentina, the US, Kenya, Spain or Egypt.

Interesting about frequencies too in that the tone or a pitch can set the mood to make it upbeat or melancholy. Interesting how frequencies impact us isnt it?

What about you? Flamenco? Classical? MidEast? You ever heard of Bond?

I have never heard about Bond. Flamenco is fantastic! Oh, energy and hard to sit still. But the best music that can wake up even dead is Celtic dance. LOL!
I love classic music. I love great art. I can't stand s**** art. :D

Yes, the Celtic culture(s) is very rich and old; very good stuff. I like it too, Hey...wasnt that on a commercial quite a while ago; ' and I like it too '.

Thanks for the video. You probably know of Loreena McKennit then.

Oh and nice horse paintings which reminds me, the Derby was pretty good last Saturday. Would like to see a Triple Crown winner this year but I dont believe there will a horse quite like Secratariat ever.

This image represents a pun derived from a famous line in Virgil's tenth Eclogue, "Love conquers all." The Latin word omnia, like the Greek word pan, signifies "all," while amor, the Latin name for Cupid, means "love," so that Cupid's victorious combat with the woodland god is a visual translation of the phrase.

I can't list my favourites, I get so excited every day by different artists works.
My first love was Ingres, David, Salvador Dali, Escher, the Pre Raphaelites and now I'm into digital artists.
I think I get inspired by the medium I use.

I started off just drawing black and white pencil work, then charcoal, then colour with pastels, then oils and then watercolour, gouache,
and now I'm digital.

As I learn each medium I am in awe of each artist.

My pet hates would be an artist that cannot draw technically yet creates a piece that anyone can do and calls it art.
Without the traditional skill of an artist I don't believe that abstractations
are a worthy piece.
I value an abstract work of art much more if I know that the artist has previous drawing abilities, otherwise there is too much scope to be a con artist..:rolleyes:

That's just my own preference that I have because I went to Uni with some talentless people that were lazy and yet suceeded because of their status and not their talent, a child could have done a better job.

Its not sour grapes though - they get found out in the end - I just despise people that pretend to be something they are not and laugh behind peoples backs and call their customers stupid for falling for their crap.

It's a movement called the stuckism movement. I'm a member. Not stuck in the past, just not taking the piss....:)

I could name names but you probably can guess who these talentless imposters are .....they are good salespeople but not good artists.

Good to see that you all have a good eye for real art in here....;)

It took me several months to understand why we had have here a sex communism tread here. :D :p

Let's look what I have found.

The "Berdache" are also known as llahamana, adonisgi, gatekeepers, nadle, mexago, winkte, yirka- la ul, and i-wa-wisp. They are those individuals who, because of their essential energetic androgyny, have the power to enter the Otherworld. This is NOT a sexual orientation. It is spiritual. Some Berdache are gay, but that is more a choice of action, a preference, than it is a mandate for the usage of this gift.

The indigenous thought about the Other World, the realm of the Gods, is that it is a realm of ONENESS. The Gods or spirits are both masculine and feminine in one. Though a certain spirit might manifest before a human in either a masculine or feminine character, it is---at it's core---BOTH genders.

The Berdache are special in the fact that they carry this androgynous energy---the energy of the Gods. It is what makes them able to exist both in physical form and also "journey" into the other realms as well. Hermes Trismegastrus and the Egyptian God THOTH were both examples of this propensity for androgyny. In fact, the term "hermaphrodite" (Hermes+ Aphrodite) refers to the marriage of the archetypal male and female (these two were the children of Zeus). This important predisposition is seen clearly in the African culture. In childbirth, the spirit of the fetus is exhorted through the voice of the mother. It is at this time that the "energy" of it's soul is examined by the village Shaman. Certain souls who possess this androgyny are seen to be "blessed from birth." They are called "the holy ones." It is in this African tradition that the name of "Gatekeeper" is given to the child. Many preparations are made to welcome it into the community, including the giving of an appropriate name to "harmonize" with it's sacred purpose.

The priestesses in the Temples of the Goddess were often Berdache. Though they often lived "normal" lives---having husbands and families---they would choose, at key times to go and live at the Temple, devoting many hours,
days, weeks to worship of the Goddess.

In this "Temple-system" of worship, people from the city would come and pay homage to the particular face or version of the Goddess for which the Temple was built. Most noted were the Temples for Diana, Artemis, Isis, and Hecate---though there were/are many more faces of the ONE Goddess. The "homage" would often consist of money or physical goods---which would be utilized for the upkeep of the Temple as well as the support of the Priestesses.

Temple worship was often sexual in nature. Many times, children were born of the connections made there. These children were raised in the Temple and were called "Children of the Goddess." Those less sympathetic with this religious system, who wrote about these "rites," would refer to these Priestesses as "Temple Prostitutes." They looked upon them with scorn, and later sought to overthrow the whole system.

http://www.reconnections.net/androgyny2.htm


Hermes Trismegastrus and the Egyptian God THOTH were both examples of this propensity for androgyny.
Yes, the same Hermes who taught the ruling elite how to enslaved and keep us in misery us for ages. He left many teachings but the most powerful that keep us under mass hypnosis are teachings relating to language, crafty, and deceitful, and cunning words. One of the member said that I was obsessed with Hermes which made me smile. We need to know the teachings to get to know the mindset of those who control us; otherwise we will be stuck. I have posted on the Horns of Moses tread all of his teachings but lets look at a few.

GOD OF LANGUAGE, LEARNING & CRAFTY WILES

Hermes came to be regarded as the god of language, alongside Mnemosyne (the goddess of memory). He was said to have been the inventor of writing, which in ancient Greece was first employed in the missives carried by heralds and the stock-taking of merchants and property owners. In addition, he was sometimes said to have taught mankind their many tongues, and so was the god of the "babelisation" of language, so to speak.
As well as writing, he presided over eloquence and persuasion, skills employed by those under his patronage: heralds, merchants, thieves and conmen. Similarly he was the god of crafty thoughts and wiles, and the use of persuasive deception and trickery.


GOD OF SPEECH, CRAFTY WORDS & ELOQUENCE

"Also the Guide, Argeiphontes [Hermes], contrived within her [Pandora, the first woman] lies and crafty words and a deceitful nature at the will of loud thundering Zeus, and the Herald of the gods [Hermes] put speech in her." - Hesiod, Works and Days 80
She [Maia] bare a son [Hermes], of many shifts, blandly cunning." - Homeric Hymn 4 to Hermes 4

http://mistsofavalon.heavenforum.org/t2426p15-moses-and-his-horns.

Aphrodite/Venus

Pindar, Eulogies Fragment 122 (trans. Sandys) (Greek lyric C5th B.C.) :
"Guest-loving girls [courtesans and prostitutes]! Servants of Peitho (Suasion) in wealthy Korinthos! Ye that burn the golden tears of fresh frankincense, full often soaring upward in your souls unto Aphrodite."

Strabo, Geography 8. 6. 20 (trans. Jones) (Greek geographer C1st B.C. to C1st A.D.) :
"The temple of Aphrodite [in Korinthos in the days of the tyrant Kypselos] was so rich that it owned more than a thousand temple slaves, courtesans, whom both men and women had dedicated to the goddess.
http://www.theoi.com/Cult/AphroditeCult.html


One aspect of the cult of Aphrodite and her precedents that Thomas Bulfinch's much-reprinted The Age of Fable; or Stories of Gods and Heroes (1855 etc.) elided[21] was the practice of ritual prostitution in her shrines and temples. The euphemism in Greek is hierodoule, "sacred slave." The practice was an inherent part of the rituals owed to Aphrodite's Near Eastern forebears, Sumerian Inanna and Akkadian Ishtar, whose temple priestesses were the "women of Ishtar," ishtaritum.[22] The practice has been documented in Babylon, Syria and Palestine, in Phoenician cities and the Tyrian colony Carthage, and for Hellenic Aphrodite inCyprus, the center of her cult, Cythera, Corinth and in Sicily
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Aphrodite


Dionysus ( /ˌdaɪəˈnaɪsəs/ dy-ə-NY-səs; Greek: Διόνυσος, Dionysos) was the god of the grape harvest, winemaking and wine, of ritual madness and ecstasy in Greek mythology.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dionysus


Phallic processions and contests held in his honour were also widely celebrated. His main cult centres were the island of Naxos and Mount Kithairon in Boiotia, the latter being the seat of his Orgies.
http://www.theoi.com/Cult/DionysosCult.html
Those who partake in his mysteries are possessed and empowered by the god himself.[9] His cult is also a "cult of the souls"; his maenads feed the dead through blood-offerings, and he acts as a divine communicant between the living and the dead.

Initiates worshipped him in theDionysian Mysteries, which were comparable to and linked with the Orphic Mysteries, and may have influenced Gnosticism[citation needed]. Orpheus was said to have invented the Mysteries of Dionysus.[48]

The bull, the serpent, the ivy and the wine are the signs of the characteristic Dionysian atmosphere, and Dionysus is strongly associated with satyrs, centaurs, and sileni.

Bacchanalia

The notoriety of these festivals, where many kinds of crimes and political conspiracies were supposed to be planned, led to a decree by the Senate in 186 BC the so-calledSenatus consultum de Bacchanalibus, inscribed on a bronze tablet discovered inCalabria (1640), now in Vienna by which the Bacchanalia were prohibited throughout all Italy except in special cases that required specific approval by the Senate.

I love this style.

I recently snagged a Homer Costello painting from 1954 for 25 bucks that has a similar feel to this. I love this style . So vaseline dreamy! Gets my heart pumping!

I just bought a Homer Costello today - lots of ORANGE/brown/white/tan bold strokes, and quite textured. VERY MCM (mid century modern)

I passed on the other one that was more simple, yet lovely. Found the same painting a few min ago and it went for $700!!!
http://www.worthpoint.com/worthopedia/1950s-homer-costello-impasto-oil-130716406

Nice artwork. Themes of love and hearts. Coincidently, I have been reading Gordano Brunos On Magic and A General Account of Bonding. I havent finished yet but I hope that I will get a deeper understanding how love and sex can be used as means of control and mass manipulation. In other words, how we can be as Bruno said "chained. :eek:


Ficino, the most prominent of the Renaissance magicians, employed a
curious synthesis of astrology, divination and Kabbalah in his work-keeping
allegiance with the humanist ethos of his day. According to Culiano, Marcilio
also seemed to be a precursor of modern day psychologists, being fully aware of
such things as Freudian projection, the Jungian concept of anima/animus
(female and male counterparts in our psyches) and more importantly how images
impress upon the unconscious mind, thus altering the behavior of the
individual, often times against their will. When images enter through the eye
and into the soul of a person, according to Ficino, they are changed into
phantasms , an interesting concept indeed and one quite antithetical to
current day analytical psychology which tends to regard images as being
lifeless. The Renaissance mages regarded these phantasms not metaphorically
but quite literally as having an existence of their own. These phantasms were not
merely the fanciful product of poetss imaginations whatsoever and the magicians
were well aware of their potential for harm if not controlled.

Marcilio even went on to develop a phantasmic language which could be
employed through various conjuring procedure, a language that most certainly
held the interest of the Medicis who saw the potential for manipulating the
masses, enabling them to cause large scale possession in order to transfix
and sedate the public at large.

Could the artists of the Renaissance, such as those employed to
illustrate Francesco Colonnas cryptic work, have been employed by their
wealthy patrons with this specific purpose in mind, i.e. to conjure phantasms
to be then delivered into the souls of individuals , primarily through the
means of beautiful and seductive images in order to create a kind of delirium
and disorientation?


Bruno also delved into the realms of mass manipulation through magic. In his work De Vinculus in Genere
(Of Bonds in General) he daringly posits the idea that the
magician-psychologist him/herself can directly persuade the masses without
any divine intervention whatsoever, again maintaining a humanist stance like
Ficino. Central to the effectiveness of such workings is to gather as much
personal information about the target individual or groups as possible, for it
is the most effective way to create a link with them to cast spells.

Eugne Henri Paul Gauguin (1848 1903) was a leading French Post-Impressionist artist. He was an important figure in the Symbolist movement as a painter, sculptor, print-maker, ceramist, and writer. His bold experimentation with coloring led directly to the Synthetist style of modern art while his expression of the inherent meaning of the subjects in his paintings, under the influence of the cloisonnist style, paved the way to Primitivism and the return to the pastoral. He was also an influential proponent of wood engraving and woodcuts as art forms.[1]

Gauguin is also considered a Post-Impressionist painter. His bold, colorful and design oriented paintings significantly influenced Modern art. Artists and movements in the early 20th century inspired by him include Vincent van Gogh, Henri Matisse, Pablo Picasso, Georges Braque, Andr Derain, Fauvism, Cubism and Orphism, among others. Later he influenced Arthur Frank Mathews and the American Arts and Crafts Movement.

El Greco (1541 1614) was a painter, sculptor and architect of the Spanish Renaissance. El Greco's dramatic and expressionistic style was met with puzzlement by his contemporaries but found appreciation in the 20th century. El Greco is regarded as a precursor of both Expressionism and Cubism, while his personality and works were a source of inspiration for poets and writers such as Rainer Maria Rilke and Nikos Kazantzakis. His expressiveness and colors influenced Eugne Delacroix and douard Manet.
The first painter who appears to have noticed the structural code in the morphology of the mature El Greco was Paul Czanne, one of the forerunners of cubism.

Freud, Lucian (1922- 2011 ). German-born British painter. He was born in Berlin, a grandson of Sigmund Freud, came to England with his parents in 1931, and acquired British nationality in 1939. His earliest love was drawing, and he began to work full time as an artist after being invalided out of the Merchant Navy in 1942. In 1951 his Interior at Paddington (Walker Art Gallery, Liverpool) won a prize at the Festival of Britain, and since then he has built up a formidable reputation as one of the most powerful contemporary figurative painters. Portraits and nudes are his specialties, often observed in arresting close-up. His early work was meticulously painted, so he has sometimes been described as a `Realist' (or rather absurdly as a Superrealist), but the subjectivity and intensity of his work has always set him apart from the sober tradition characteristic of most British figurative art since the Second World War.
http://www.ibiblio.org/wm/paint/auth/freud/

The artist was widely considered the preeminent British artist of his time. I wouldn't consider him as my favorite painter and I didn't want to post his famous nude paintings :D........ Freud had an almost visceral hatred of almost all art of the Renaissance....... But he needs to be acknowledged.

We definitely have a different taste for art. It looks like the artist wants to threaten somebody. :D :D

But if you like Dali..... BTW, the art teacher wrote that Dali "is incredibly popular with teenagers because they combine a mastery of illusionary "realism" with an unreality... fantasy... or inventiveness. According to the studies of the development of visual or artistic sensibility few individuals ever more beyond this stage into the higher level of development in which art is appreciated abstractly."

I haven't read that study so that I can't make any comment. I don't agree with his interpretation of art.......too much assumptions. :D

I think the painting for the album Atem is beautiful and not threatening at all. Maybe strange and wonderful! It's the miracle of childbirth.

Well, de gustibus non est disputandum. However, there is a good art and a bad art. Second, I pick up feelings behind paintings as paintings not only show emotional and mental state of the artist but evoke feeling in a viewer. I didnt like that painting at all for both reasons. The second painting evokes different feelings. I dont know Froeses paintings but after seeing the first painting, I will not look at his art. There are many contemporary artists who create disturbing art. :D

The theme may be disturbing in a few paintings. But he was a master and I have enjoyed his art. Second, dont forget that paintings or images access our unconsciousness. I havent read Culianos Eros, Magic, and the Renaissance yet but I read the he indirectly encouraged us to a more substantial appreciation of the subtleties of Renaissance artists. Michelangelo is one of the greatest artists of that era. I still have to read more Brunos and Ficinos before I read his book to see if I share his opinion.

Anyway, I better go back to art. After occult symbolism on Super Bowl and Grammy........I need to fill my soul with beauty. :D

It's more than a few of them out of what you posted. That is a preponderance of truly disturbing imagery.

I've been noticing that most of the women in the Master's paintings are not very beautiful. A lot of them look downright manly. His bodily proportions aren't that great. Most of the figures both male and female look a little odd and ugly, not to mention the demons and things.

The real religion of Bruno was the religion of analogy. He did not believe that the meanings of words, images, sounds and symbols could be defined semantically but could be understood intuitively and analogically through other words, images, sounds and symbols. The world of the mind is the world of the phantasy for which understanding occurs- not through rationality, as rationality is impossible but through the contemplation of images:
"For the philosophy, music or poetry is also painting, and the painting is also music and philosophy, and true poetry or music is a kind of divine wisdom and painting."Elsewhere I have discussed how any painter is naturally an establisher of infinite images who, by means of his image forming power, constructs from sight and sounds by combining in a multiplicity of ways.

;)


I have decided to delete Antionio Jacobson and to post Egon Schiele.
The reason that I have done it because I have noticed how much being exposed to images at Super Bowl and Grammy has affected me, not in a positive way. Bruno and Ficino were right saying that images affect our souls. It was evident when I looked at paintings I would avoid otherwise.

Beauty fills our souls, ugliness kills. :eek:



Egon Schiele (June 12, 1890 October 31, 1918) (pronounced [ˈʃiːlə], approximately SHEE-luh) was an Austrian painter, a protg of Gustav Klimt, and a major figurative painter of the early 20th century.

Schiele's body of work is noted for the intensity and the large number of self-portraits he produced. The twisted body shapes that characterize Schiele's paintings and drawings make the artist a notable exponent of Expressionism.

Edgar Degas (1834 1917) born Hilaire-Germain-Edgar Degas was a French artist famous for his work in painting, sculpture, printmaking and drawing. He is regarded as one of the founders of Impressionism although he rejected the term, and preferred to be called a realist. A superb draughtsman, he is especially identified with the subject of the dance, and over half his works depict dancers. These display his mastery in the depiction of movement, as do his racecourse subjects and female nudes. His portraits are considered to be among the finest in the history of art.

I have noticed that I neglected Leonardo Da Vinci like Michelangelo.
Perhaps, it was a reason as I have learned to find the complete work. There is much more better quality of photos and it makes a big difference.

Leonardo di ser Piero da Vinci (1452 1519) was an Italian polymath, having been a scientist, mathematician, engineer, inventor, anatomist, painter, sculptor, architect, botanist, musician and writer. Born as the illegitimate son of a notary, Piero da Vinci, and a peasant girl, Caterina, at Vinci in the region of Florence, Leonardo was educated in the studio of the renowned Florentine painter, Verrocchio. Much of his earlier working life was spent in the service of Ludovico il Moro in Milan. He later worked in Rome, Bologna and Venice, spending his final years in France at the home given to him by King Franois I.

Leonardo has often been described as the archetype of the "Renaissance man", a man whose seemingly infinite curiosity was equalled only by his powers of invention. He is widely considered to be one of the greatest painters of all time and perhaps the most diversely talented person ever to have lived.

Basically, I no longer work for anything but the sensation I have while working. | Alberto Giacometti

If the glass there in front of me astounds me more than all the glasses I’ve seen in painting, and if I even think that the greatest architectural wonder of the world couldn’t affect me more than this glass, it’s really not worth while going to the Indies to see some temple or other when I have as much and more right in front of me. | Alberto Giacometti

When you look at art made by other people, you see what you need to see in it. | Alberto Giacometti

The older I grow, the more I find myself alone. | Alberto Giacometti

When I see a head from a great distance, it ceases to be a sphere and becomes an extreme confusion falling down into the abyss. | Alberto Giacometti

It is impossible to do a thing the way I see it because the closer I get the more differently I see. | Alberto Giacometti

Only reality interests me now and I know I could spend the rest of my life in copying a chair. | Alberto Giacometti

The object of art is not to reproduce reality, but to create a reality of the same intensity. | Alberto Giacometti

When I make my drawings… the path traced by my pencil on the sheet of paper is, to some extent, analogous to the gesture of a man groping his way in the darkness. | Alberto Giacometti

Artistically I am still a child with a whole life ahead of me to discover and create. I want something, but I won’t know what it is until I succeed in doing it. | Alberto Giacometti

One of the most prominent painters of expressionism, he never was a member of one of the expressionist painting groups, like "Die Brcke", who influenced him. His work was considered degenerate art by the Nazis, and only after World War II did he regain recognition as one of the greatest German painters.

Kthe Kollwitz (July 8, 1867 – April 22, 1945) was a German painter, print-maker, and sculptor whose work offered an eloquent and often searing account of the human condition in the first half of the 20th century. Her empathy for the less fortunate, expressed most famously through the graphic means of drawing, etching, lithography, and woodcut, embraced the victims of poverty, hunger, and war. Initially her work was grounded in Naturalism, and later took on Expressionistic qualities

A most eloquent example of the female perspective for the early 20th century.

Well, I can't post any more as my antivirus has shown that I got virus.
It didn't take that long. :D



The Odalisque which literally means female slave or member of a harem, has a long history in art.

I think that following Kthe Kollwitz -works that show the despair and joy of the female condition from a female point of view, with examples of the female slaves with no other purpose than to be objects is somewhat poignant and ironic.

From the moment that art ceases to be food that feeds the best minds, the artist can use his talents to perform all the tricks of the intellectual charlatan. Most people can today no longer expect to receive consolation and exaltation from art. The 'refined,' the rich, the professional 'do-nothings', the distillers of quintessence desire only the peculiar, the sensational, the eccentric, the scandalous in today's art.

I myself, since the advent of Cubism, have fed these fellows what they wanted and satisfied these critics with all the ridiculous ideas that have passed through my mind. The less they understood them, the more they admired me. Through amusing myself with all these absurd farces, I became celebrated, and very rapidly. For a painter, celebrity means sales and consequent affluence. Today, as you know, I am celebrated, I am rich.

But when I am alone, I do not have the effrontery to consider myself an artist at all, not in the grand old meaning of the word: Giotto, Titian, Rembrandt, Goya were great painters. I am only a public clown - a mountebank. I have understood my time and have exploited the imbecility, the vanity, the greed of my contemporaries. It is a bitter confession, this confession of mine, more painful than it may seem. But at least and at last it does have the merit of being honest.

Pablo Picasso, 1952

Someone check the validity of this please :D.
