Polish artist Jacek Yerka was born in 1952. The two of his mothers and fathers are artists, so he grew up with the scent of paint and surrounded by paper, ink, paints and brushes. Yerka was thinking about studying astronomy or medicine, but identified paint appropriate before his last test and thus entered the mysterious entire world of colors. The artist was mostly inspired by XV century Dutch tablet paintings.

The vibrant world of Julie Heffernan

Julie Heffernan creates sensuous figurative painting, like co-Yale MFAS, John Currin and Linda Yuskavage, but her luminous oils are patently unique among them and most working artists today. A Victorian impetus to conjoin, edging toward pastiche, creates artfully staged Surrealist environments. (more…)

Psychological landscapes by Alex Gross

The existential vacuum is the psychological landscape that Alex Gross presents in Future Tense. A lengthy parade of characters lost in their cell phones, iPads and computers find themselves in worlds of neon-lit supermarkets, billboard infested metropolises, and naturalistic countryside panoramas. Most of his characters appear bored and distracted. His work exposes the result of corporate-dictated mass culture and our inability to be present and interact with the real world. Alex Gross’ paintings remind us, through a blend of symbolic and literal elements, that it is impossible to escape the domination of corporations and consumerism. (more…)

Ice-Creams Paintings by Iraqi artist Othman Toma

Iraqi artist Othman Toma creates these paintings using melted ice-creams. If you look at his site he usually draws with pencils or paints with watercolours, these paintings are proof that you can produce art in a variety of unconventional ways. There are some out there that say that these paintings, could not have been painted with the ice-creams, Othman says that, that is what he used as his paint, maybe next time he should do a time lapse video to prove them wrong.

The Labyrinth of Knowledge or the Tree of the Knowledge (of Good and Evil)

“And out of the ground made the LORD God to grow every tree that is pleasant to the sight, and good for food; the tree of life also in the midst of the garden, and the tree of the knowledge of good and evil.” (Genesis 2:9)
There’s a thin line between good and evil, extremes always reach out to each other. In the Christian theology, the Tree of Knowledge is connected to the doctrine of Original Sin (Gen 2:17 and 3:1-24). In the Book of Genesis God directly forbade Adam (before Eve has been created) to eat the fruit of the Tree of Knowledge. A serpent tempted Eve, who was aware of the prohibition against eating the forbidden fruit. The serpent had suggested to Eve that eating the fruit would bestow wisdom upon them. Eve and then Adam ate the forbidden fruit, and they became aware of their nakedness. After discovering their disobedience, God banished the couple from the garden in order to deny them access to the Tree of Life, which would have bestowed immortality onto them. God cursed both the snake and the ground, obliging Adam to survive through agriculture “by the sweat of his brow”. He told the woman that her childbirth pains would be greatly increased and that the man would rule over her. (more…)

Eve

In ancient Hebrew “messiah” and “snake” were the same word. Think about it. It is possible that Eve (“the living”) actually lead Adam (“dust”) out of the dark by offering him the forbidden fruit of the Tree of Knowledge at the urging of the Savior? Dangerous supposition… It flips all the concepts and prejudices we’re comfortable with. Do not know if this is true or not, but I know I can not be so stupid to exclude any possibility before I think about. I keep wondering why for centuries the church insisted on “believe and do not search”. Whatthey really hiding? And why? The generally accepted version of the New Testament  is a collection of texts selected and censored. The clergy have decided what we should and should not know. Church argued for years that the Earth is the center of the universe (and the only planet), stating vehemently that the earth is flat … And so on. (more…)

God is an old guy with some weird beard and a strange kind of humor? I prefer not to think about him that way.
Rather I prefer to think about him as a beautiful woman. And my relation with God is an intimate one based on love and respect, rather then on fear and submission.
For years I was reading the Bible to obtain a portrait of God, but I dig out only pictures of a furious, vengeful, cruel and yeah, impulsive guy who seems to hate us all from his guts. Well, I guess is not his fault that some men thousand years ago got the wrong picture.
But it’s for sure our fault to maintain false approaches of this subject.
When Jesus came into the picture he tried to do the first major rebranding operation and we all had to admit it, he done a pretty good PR job. It was messy, but it worked out. Maybe not the way as Jesus – or God – planed, I’m not that sure they are happy about who hi-jacked their name and twisted their message, but it’s not the issue now.
No matter what language you use, whether you translate or transliterate, YHWH’s name means “I am that I am”. (more…)

Cut the crap and be brutally honest: modern generally speaking means quite tasteless or even worst. That’s a fact. Art is not about express yourself anymore, but about kissing asses to cash in eventually. It helps if you’re mindlessly gay or at least bisexual, if you have at least a Jewish promoter and – most of all – if you don’t have a clue what you’re talking, singing, painting, writing and generally, doing about. It’s better to be black, Hispanic or from China, Caucasian is so fuckin’ boring and ordinary! You need – it’s hopelessly mandatory – Facebook, Twitter and… Botox.
My name is… Picasso. Let’s Murder the Modern Arts! (more…)
