Last night I watched a travel documentary fronted by Joanna Lumley. There was a really interesting bit on Haitian artists, a lot of them still work in studios in slums despite being shown in exclusive galleries around the World.

Unfortunately I can't find the clip, all searches are about when Lumley was held at gun point by robbers, but here's something by CNN on the same subject.



At one point Lumley was in a boutique where it was pointed out how cheap the materials were and how resourceful the artists are. One framed piece of work was the back of a cereal box just flattened out, the colours were all red and blue because they were done with cheap biros.

I'm not sure what to make of this. The figures seem to be disassociated and yet they're amidst and open to a natural environment. The painting leaves you with more questions than answers, which I like. All her paintings are like this with the figures staring out into space.

Franz Kline's paintings leave me cold. Reminds me of deconstructed Japanese calligraphy or shodo (but not in a good way).

@tsarstepan,
Saw an interesting documentary on Roman art last night. A lot of it is lost with mosaics and frescos remaining, but the quality of the mosaics suggests real high quality art has been lost forever.

A painter used Roman materials to recreate a painting from its mosaic and it looked pretty good.

August Strindberg

August Strindberg (1849-1912) is known as a prolific writer of novels and plays but he was also an extremely radical painter for his time.

@coluber2001,
Personally, I love impressionism. For centuries, people felt the goal of art was to reproduce reality as realistically as possible. The impressionists turned all that on its head, and made it okay to express feelings and impressions (hence the name) however the artist wished—emphasizing that each of us perceives things differently, and that feelings and moods can be evoked just as effectively by a lack of realism.
