Upon discovering Janet's works through vimeo, in my never ending thirst for good independent media, my curiosity got the best of me.
When I read that....."Ms. Ternoff is a self-taught artist living and working in New York. She creates realist-style cityscapes paintings in oil [and linen]..." You'll see why Johannes Vermeer came too mind, well at least for me it did, her paintings will definably be hanging in a museum one day.Upon discovering Janet's works through vimeo, in my never ending thirst for good... more

George Condo is a prolific painter whose career spans almost three decades, creating characters who inhabit a grotesque, comic, baroque and sinister world. His work presents surrealist-style figure paintings, where humor abates tragedy and our inner demons are realized on a canvas. Condo’s work has been described as the visual embodiment of our mental states, and the first major American survey of his work has just opened at New York City’s New Museum, aptly entitled “George Condo: Mental States.”
This piece includes a number of high-resolution color photographs, a slide show and the documentary short film, “Condo Painting.”

Roy Lichtenstein (1923-1997) was a prominent American pop artist, whose work was heavily influenced by both popular advertising and the comic book style. He himself described Pop art as, “not American painting but actually industrial painting.” Lichtenstein’s early paintings of women were based on cartoons and mostly blond, they are anonymous, beautiful and often unhappily bothered, usually by men. Just when you thought you’d seen enough Pop Art to last a lifetime, Lichtenstein’s portrayals in some way glorify the American woman by giving innocuous images of her generic concocted self and her roiling emotions such blazing formal power.
This piece includes a number of photographs, as well as a documentary short film.

“What Visions Burn” is an amazing animated 3-minute short art film by the painter Ezra Johnson, which tells the story of a pair of cunning art thieves in New York City. It portrays their audacious $100 million museum art heist and its aftermath, in which Johnson intertwines content with style for a unique take on the robber-film genre. Johnson paints and repaints his canvases to create each frame of the film, providing a rich visual texture and continuity. He uses the medium of painting to make a film about stolen paintings, and interjects newspaper headlines, made from newsprint collages, into the action.
This piece presents a number of colorful illustrations, as well as the remarkable short art film.

Bob Dylan, who has been painting since the 1960s, will have new paintings and drawings on display at The National Gallery of Denmark September 4th through January 30th. “It was an honor to be asked and a thrilling challenge,” Dylan said in a statement about the collection, called “Brazil Series,” which he created exclusively for the museum. “I chose Brazil as a subject because I have been there many times and I like the atmosphere.” Inspired by early 20th century American realism and painters like Matisse, Dylan depicts politicians, gamblers, wine growers, and other denizens of Brazil.
This piece includes pictures of the paintings, as well as a slide show of the "Brazil Series" paintings and earlier artwork by Dylan.
