FRANCESCO CLEMENTE MY FAVOURITE PORTRAITS

WOMAN

Witajcie w Nowym Roku! Wraz z nowym rokiem, nowe inspiracje nowe plany i pomysły 🙂 Dzisiaj chcę pokazać Ci kilka moich ulubionych prac znakomitego włoskiego artysty Francesco Clemente. Ten włoski malarz to znakomity reprezentant włoskiej transawangardy, ruchu który około lat 70tych miał pokazywać ekspresjonistyczne tendencje włoskie we współczesnej sztuce. Jego prace to mieszanka abstrakcji z malarstwem figuratywnym. Clemente ma na swoim koncie wiele podróży, Afganistan, Indie, Nowy Jork i wiele więcej, szczególnie kultura i sztuka Indii wywarła wpływ na jego dalszą twórczość artystyczną. Poniżej znajdziesz kilka moich ulubionych prac tego artysty, szczególnie w pamięć zapadła mi współpraca Clemenete z Amerykańskim fotografem Jasonem Schmidt’em dla Harper’s Bazaar gdzie zarówno fotograf jak i malarz uwypuklają piękno kobiet o odmiennych typach urody w różnym wieku. Artysta nie idealizuje, nie upiększa… filtruje ich piękno poprzez własną perspektywę patrzenia na świat a później przelewa je na płótna. Elementem, który wielokrotnie pojawia się w jego pracach to wyraziste, migdałowe oczy,  jeden z jego elementów rozpoznawczych- przeszywające, budzące lekki niepokój sprawiają, że na pozór prosty portret staje się czymś zupełnie nieodgadnionym.

Welcome to the New Year! With the new year, new inspirations, new plans and ideas 🙂 Today I want to show you some of my favorite works of the outstanding Italian artist Francesco Clemente. This Italian painter is a great representative of the Italian transawangarda, a movement which, around the 1970s, was supposed to show Italian expressionistic tendencies in contemporary art. His works are a mix of abstraction and figurative painting. Clemente has traveled a lot, to Afghanistan, India, New York and much more, especially the culture and art of India influenced his further artistic work. You can find below some of my favorite works by this artist, especially brilliant collaboration Clemente with the American photographer Jason Schmidt for Harper’s Bazaar magazine where both the photographer and the painter emphasize the beauty of women with different types of beauty at different ages. The artist doesn’t idealize, or embellish … he filters their beauty through his own perspective of looking at the world and then pours them on the canvas. An element that many times appears in his works are expressive, almond eyes, one of its recognizable elements – piercing, slightly worrisome, making the seemingly simple portrait something completely unobvious.

 

“At an early age I had a vivid, transformative perception of my own mortality. Psychedelic drugs led me to question how substantial the ego could be. To be an artist seemed a way to ask: how do we know what we know? What is worth knowing?” —Francesco Clemente

Really talented photographer who lives in New York. I immediately fell in love with portraits of Asa Tallgard, especially in beautiful and in the same time mysterious portraits. Without doubt this photographer is admirable. You can find her interesting works in fashion magazines, she created many covers for ELLE Russia, ELLE France and much more.

Look at these portraits with Magdalena Frąckowiak or Angela Lindvall! Many thanks for inspire me!

EDWARD DWURNIK
Tego Pana chyba nie trzeba przedstawiać. Wybitny polki artysta, którego twórczość nabrała rozpędu za sprawą prac Nikifora Krynickiego. Nikifor jako przedstawiciel sztuki prymitywnej zapalił u Dwurnika ogień oryginalnej ścieżki malarskiej. Był to niezwykle płodny artysta, pozostawił po sobie ponad 5000 obrazów. Szczególnie jego postać kojarzona jest z malowaniem stolic różnych krajów…i słusznie bowiem prawie każdy pragnął mieć kawałek Dwurnika na ścianie, trochę Polski za granicą czy Paryża w Polsce. Chodź Dwurnik odszedł bardzo niedawno, z pewnością jego prace będą inspirować dalsze pokolenia.

Brilliant polish artist who developed own artistic path when he saw works by Nikifor Krynicki. Nikifor was a polish prymitve artist which woke up Dwurnik’s activity and involved for his oryginality in art world. Dwurnik was really prolific artist, he painted about 5000 works. People know his character mainly with pictures where architecture from different courties is the most important (Mostly with bird’s eye perspective). Unfortunately he died really recently but I’m sure that his oeuvre will be inspiration for next generations.

Christo and Jeane-Claude are the brilliant artistic duet who crated works of art in natural environment. Christo was born 1935 in Gabrovo Bulgardia and his late wife in Casablanca Marocco (1935-2009), udoubtely their work is visually impressive in view of its widely scale. Major works are

Valley Curtain ( 1972 USA) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zuHYC-FXVbg&t=432s

Wrapped Reichstag 1969 – https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=esiErDm62E4

Wall of Oil Barrels – The Iron Curtain 1970

Runnin Fence – 1976

Surrounded Island – http://christojeanneclaude.net/projects/surrounded-islands

The Umrellas, Japan- USA  1984-1991 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wiagfGqs2Yc

Now we an admire one of the most interesting project by Christo The London Mastaba for Serpentine Lake, project for Hyde Park London. He created the sculpture’s floating platform which is is being made of polyethylene cubes anchored to the lakebed with weighted anchors. The total weight is 600 metric tons. Mastaba is known a type of ancient Egyptian tomb (Eternal house or House of Eternity) in the form of rectangular structure with inward sloping sides, with a flat-roofed, constructed out of mud-bricks. Worthy to think about interpretation of this project. Christo said: All interpretations accepted”. This monumental block in form of trapezoid with all barrels painted red/ blue and mauve can activate our curiosity. Especially this invisbile sctructure is very important, that’s way we see lightly and floatting sculpture. It’s amazing that this multicoloured project bringed on so many interpretation… Worth to visit this place at different times of the day, your interpretation can depends of light, perspective, weather. For me, it’s a symbol of natural passing time Worthy to think about interpretation of this project. Christo said: All interpretations accepted”.

For me it’s a symbol of natural passing time in refers to term The Mastaba. On the other hand presents fluidity of time, like waves on the water. I’m really interested, what’s your interpretation?
