It’s a huge article and one that I was totally delighted to write and honoured to see published today.

Mobile Photography & Art – Flickr Group Showcase – 27 May 2018

Share

This whole showcase is theatre. We open with ‘Red Heart (peel)’ by highly accomplished mobile artist, Poetic Medium who describes her inspiration of her work (in our interview in full here), as ‘the poetry of modern living’. It is an expression of the beliefs of the majority, I would say. Poetic Medium, understands that art should be experienced by both body and mind, by hands, touch as well as eyes and sight. This showcase expresses this view, my curation is not always to create something wholly new but to draw attention to what is already there. As you penetrate this body of art, you’ll become aware of its fluidity and this has something to do with the generosity and openness that we share and embrace within our community of mobile artists.  Enjoy!

Thank you to all artists for submitting your works. If you would like your work to be considered for entry in to our weekly Mobile Photography and Art Flickr Group, please submit it to our dedicated group, here.

Many congratulations to the following artists for being featured this week:

Anastasia Potekhina, Linda Hollier, Luison – Lrh , David Hayes, borisbshulz2009, Tomaso Belloni, Jun Yamaguchi, jillian2 – Jill Lian, Candice Railton, Poetic Medium, p.a. hamel, Lorenka Campos, Gianluca Ricoveri, Ginaluca Ricoveri, Gina Costa, Andrzej Libiszewski, Susan Rennie, Jenneke Tesselaar, Barbara Nebel, Kate Zari Roberts, G.

Weekend of Mobile Photography/Art with Talented Mobile Artist, Clint Cline

Share

Recently, you may recall that we posted our third in a new series of articles entitled ‘Weekend of Mobile Photography/Art‘. That one was with Alexis Rotella our first was with Jerry Jobe and our second with Fiona Christian, our third with Amanda Parker and this weekend Clint Cline tells all! Take a look…

“My weekend with Sando Botticelli

Assiduus usus uni rei deditus et ingenium et artem saepe vincit. Cicero said that. It means (roughly), “Constant practice committed to a subject often outdoes both intelligence and skill.”

Because I work daily in the communication arts as a writer and designer of print, digital, and video works, my weekends are often eclipsed with projects spilling in from an overstuffed week of To-Do’s. But on the occasional weekend where I find myself without an armload of project briefs or honey-do lists, I heed Cicero and burrow in the practice of new things and unexplored ideas.

When Joanne asked me to consider sharing my weekend, I was coincidentally researching inspiration from the early Renaissance masters for an Easter series I was doing on the  Resurrection of Christ. Her invite arrived as I was studying the classic, almost sculptural, forms of Sando Botticelli’s early Renaissance works. So I decided, in the spirit of Jerry Jobe, to pick an image and take you through my steps of transforming it into a contemporary piece”.

Interview Magazine Goes Bankrupt, Shuts Down..

Share

I’m an optimist but there are times when I’m tested. This week Andy Warhol’s magazine, Interview has declared bankruptcy and shut down. I loved Interview magazine, each interview was richly raw, many conducted with celebrities whilst in bed (at least the ones I read). Shy of its 50th anniversary, it’s gone. Same is true for Shutterbug this week too, at least in its current print form, Dan Havlik (friend and Editor-in-Chief of of Shutterbug) has explained that it will continue strongly online.

Sadly none of this remarkable to me, I practiced my trade in print, long before digital and many of the photography magazines I edited, folded too…

So, what may Warhol have to say about this, if he could, perhaps he might repeat this quote “being good in business is the most fascinating kind of art. Making money is art and working is art and good business is the best art”.

App Of The Day – BrushStroke In Association with The National Gallery (and it’s free for the weekend)

Share

I have known about this collaboration for a few weeks and am very excited to reveal it today. Unfortunately there wasn’t time to add TheAppWhisperer into this collaboration, but the National Gallery and the team behind Brushstroke (Code Organa), did try very hard.  To celebrate The Credit Suisse Exhibition: Monet & Architecture, The National Gallery have teamed up with Brushstroke app to offer you a free app download (usually $/£3.99) and a chance to enter their photography competition.

You’re all invited to follow @national_gallery on Instagram and use the Brushstroke app to experiment with filters, and share an image featuring architecture near you, inspired by the exhibition.

‘Monet & Architecture’ is the first ever exhibition looking at Monet’s career through the buildings he painted: in Normandy, in Rouen, in Paris, London, and Venice. From buildings in villages and by the coast, to some of Europe’s most famous monuments, Monet painted the architecture of his time – modern, historic, simple, and grand.

The exhibition brings together over 75 paintings by Monet, and shows how Monet used architecture to create his compositions, both in his most famous paintings and lesser-known works.

Follow @national_gallery on Instagram and share your image with us using the hashtag #MonetBrushstroke, or you can email your entry to ecrm@ng-london.org.uk.

The competition opens on 25 May at 10am BST and closes on 28 May at 11.59pm BST.

One winner will receive a framed print of their winning image with free shipping, courtesy of Brushstroke App and CanvasPop. The winner will also receive a pair of tickets to ‘The Credit Suisse Exhibition: Monet & Architecture’ in London, the exhibition catalogue and a creative goody bag from the National Gallery Company Ltd.

The Brushstroke app is free to download (and it’s rarely free) until midnight on Monday 28 May, when the competition closes.
