ARTIST SPOTLIGHT: Horace Pippin

WHO: Horace Pippin WHAT: Painter WHERE: Pennsylvania, USA WHEN: 22 February 1888 – 6 July 1946 FAMOUS FOR: Horace Pippin is best known for his striking oil paintings, which depicted the American landscapes around him and scenes from his heritage. At a young age and throughout his World War I service in the famous Harlem Hellfighters 369th infantry, Horace drew the scenes around him. As a form of rehabilitation after being shot in the shoulder, Horace continued creating art and eventually moved to oil paintings. His paintings find a unique place of maturity and folk art, as the colors, textures, and dimensionality give voice to Pippin's perspective on slavery, segregation, the Great Depression, and American life. “When I was a boy I loved to make pictures, [but war] brought out all the art in me.  I can never forget suffering and I will never forget sunsets. So I came home with all of it in my mind and I paint from it today.” -Horace Pippin [caption id="attachment_5508" align="aligncenter" width="591"]...

Featured Artist: Vakseen

Our friend, Vakseen, has been a Featured Artist on Artcast for awhile now, but we thought it was high time we give him a proper introduction. Vakseen paints with a distinct collage-influenced painting style (Vanity Pop) that fuses elements of cubism, photorealism, fashion design and pop surrealism into vibrantly alluring, abstract portraits. While most viewers assume they’re viewing collage or mixed media art, each creation is in fact meticulously hand painted directly on canvas. Drawing distinct inspiration from our fascination with popular culture, his gallant paintings are a celebration of women, beauty, duality, insecurity and self preservation.   [caption id="attachment_5491" align="alignnone" width="1000"] 2am Innocence, Vakseen[/caption] He explains, "My creations pulsate with feminine energy. Women are God’s greatest work of art and I believe life as we know it, evolves around them. Although I couldn’t fathom being a woman in this patriarchal world we live in, I open my creative process to the allure inherent to...

Famous Portraits of Artists’ Lovers

Almost as famous a lover as an artist, Pablo Picasso had several lifetimes’ worth of romantic partners, each of whom left a mark on his work. His 1932 portrait of Marie-Thérèse Walter (on the left)—who was just 17 when she and Picasso began their relationship in 1927—shows the young woman lost in a contented reverie while inviting the viewer’s gaze with a knowing smile. In the following decade, Picasso’s style shifted away from classicizing curves toward an angular geometry, as shown in a portrait of Dora Maar (on the right) from 1944.  The arresting, direct gaze of Dora in Femme en vert (Dora) contrasts sharply with the portrait of a dozing Marie-Thérèse. Maar, who became involved with Picasso in 1935, was a photographer, poet, and painter in her own right. She is reputed to have commanded a place as Picasso’s intellectual equal and artistic partner during their time together. Read the full article...

ARTIST SPOTLIGHT: Henri Matisse

WHO: Henri-Émile-Benoît Matisse WHAT: Painter (also, printmaker, sculptor, draughtsman) WHERE: Paris, France WHEN: 31 December 1869 – 3 November 1954 FAMOUS FOR: Matisse is famous for revolutionizing the way that artists approach painting and sculpture. Some of his most famous works, such as Woman with a hat (1905), La Danse (1909), and Red Room (Harmony in Red) (1908), illustrate the way that his art broke preexisting bounds and challenged artists to push further than ever before. Together with other Fauvists, Matisse expressed emotion with wild, often dissonant colours, without regard for the subject’s natural colours. Having traveled in Northern Africa and being exposed to the decorative flourishes of Islamic art, the shapes of African Sculpture, and flatness of Japanese prints, Matisse’s works shook traditional painting at the time. His paintings are enjoyable experiences that are “a soothing, calming influence on the mind, rather like a good armchair”, but also contain a measure of deliberately unsettling colors. I would like to recapture that freshness of vision which is characteristic...
