  • Abstract Artist Nebraska

    What is abstract art? It is the use of shapes, colors, forms and lines to represent something that is not a real object, or at least as we know it. The idea of abstract art began in 1911 with the belief that colors provoke emotions. It was considered somewhat radical at the time, but it allowed passionate artists to communicate through this medium in a way they couldn’t with traditional art. See all of our Patsy Smith Art Videos here https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLeAeBTd94XtG_9EX49lIBQdCG4ZLxxDNM There have been many great abstract artists since this time, but Wassily Kandinksky was considered the original pioneer.

Nebraska Art, Nebraska abstract paintings, "City at Dusk" at http://PetesOriginalArt.com Romanticism originated in the second half of the 18th century in Western Europe where it increased in its popularity during the industrial revolution. It can be described as a revolt to aristocratic social and political norms during times of Western philosophy and cultural life: the Age of Enlightenment Expressionism artists explored new techniques such as intense colors, drawing distortions, and bold use of paint surface. This would create incredibly emotionally charged works that came from reaction and emotion rather than a subject. Impressionism was commonly associated with independent Paris based artists during the 19th century. This type of work included visual paint brush strokes, a focus on light and how it changed throughout a picture, "typical" subject matter. It focused heavily on the human perception and experience and was soon followed by other types of Impressionist Arts, such as music and literature. Abstract is a painting style rather than a classification or a period of art as those listed above. Keep in mind that this amazing form of art has no set rules, the picture may or may not look like something, there are no rules. You can observe the many different elements of the painting. This may include the form, the thickness of the paint, the textures of the paint, lines, arches, the colors, etc. Do the colors blend, do they clash, do they complement one another? How does the painting make you feel - does it create a sense of joy, anger, depression, anxiety? There are two different types of Abstract Art: Hard Abstract - can be described as being based on geometric shapes Soft Abstract - can be described as having no basis When painting on canvas, specifically pertaining to Abstract type art, there are many different tools the artist may choose. In many cases it will end up being what you least expect. Newspapers, squeegees, sponges, spoons, the list can go on and on. The idea behind using such tools is easy. Abstract Art is Abstract. There are no lines to stay within. No one to tell you that you did it wrong. It merely shows what the artist felt and wants to convey through a selection of colors that best describe the emotions felt. Another trademark of many abstract artists is manipulating the medium used prior to it drying completely. For example, scratching through the surface of one color to achieve a specific look or feel. Historically, there have been many well known abstract artists. A few well recognizable examples are: Jackson Pollock is best known for "action painting" by literally throwing, dripping, smearing, spattering paint onto the canvas. Wassily Kandinsky is credited as having created the first abstract watercolor Piet Mondrian was the inspiration behind Yves Saint Laurent's 1965 Fall Mondrian Much of their art is still highly regarded today. Abstract art is timeless. Some of it captures the raw emotions of the artist and some of it displays the well thought out geometric patterns of ones mind. Once you know what goes into creating an abstract art paining, something you may have once thought was so disorganized and so easy turns into an amazing snapshot of a view through the 3rd eye of the artist; the state of enlightenment as per the the artist.

2016 Governor's Arts Awardee - Joslyn Art Museum Organizational Achievement Award Presented by the Nebraska Arts Council Joslyn Art Museum https://www.joslyn.org/ Joslyn Art Museum was established in 1931 by Sarah H. Joslyn in memory of her husband, George, as a gift to the people of Omaha. Joslyn showcases art representing artists and cultures from antiquity to the present. Its permanent collection includes over 11,000 works with holdings ranging from Renaissance and Impressionist to Western and contemporary art. The collection is particularly strong in nineteenth-century European and American and twentieth-century American art. In addition to the museum's permanent collection, Joslyn presents about nine temporary special exhibitions annually. Exhibitions are at the core of Joslyn's public programming and are chosen to augment the permanent collection and bring to visitors works otherwise unavailable in the region. At the foundation of the museum's mission is a dedication to address the needs and interests of a general adult audience, university faculty and students, K-12 teachers and students, families, youth at-risk and individuals with special needs, and this work is accomplished through programs designed to fit all audiences. The museum aims to provide the public, at all levels of learning, with the skills to understand, appreciate and interact with art. Joslyn’s nearly 20 galleries are showcased in its original 1931 Art Deco building and in the Walter and Suzanne Scott Pavilion, a 58,000-square-foot addition built in 1994 and designed by renowned British architect Norman Foster as his first U.S. commission. Connecting the two buildings is a soaring glass atrium featuring two sculptures by glass artist Dale Chihuly and a café and shop. The museum also features a concert hall, fountain court, education technology gallery, lecture hall, classrooms, sculpture garden and Art Works, an interactive space for art exploration. In 2013, the museum returned to Sarah Joslyn’s original vision of granting free general admission to all visitors, enhancing attendance, audience diversity and community engagement.
