The new website. What do you think?

In about me, art, crafts, искусство, мои рисунки, обо мне, писанина, folk art, my artworks, творчество on December 19, 2013 at 17:38

Feeling the need to have some changes in my life, I’ve decided to create the new “Linandara and Artish Folk” website. A proper one. It is going to be about arts, crafts, creativity, lifestyle, ethical issues, located at linandara.com and linandara.co.uk . Few days ago I did a first step: a temporary simple “business card” type website. Everything (like life itself) is a work in progress. There is now a facebook group for the future site, which eventually will have a forum. Please feel free to join the group and I hope you enjoy being in it.

To let people know about the new website I had an idea to do some handmade business cards. They are evolving as I make them. On the back I’ve put some keywords which would describe the future site, topics which would be discussed on it or be associated with it. The list is  changing from card to card. At the moment it includes Arts, crafts, creativity, handmade, fantasy, rationalist, dreaming, emphatic, discovery, freethinking, impressionalist, folk art, bohemian, ethnic, eccentric, independent, sci-fi, по-русски, commissions, one of the kind, etc.

Any suggestions are welcome!

Захотелось перемен, и я собралась сделать себе новый сайт, посвященный вопросам искусства, рукоделия, творчества, этики и жизни вообще. Сайт будет расположен по адресам linandara.com и linandara.co.uk. Сейчас там протая временная страничка. Как и сама жизнь, работа идет методом проб и ошибок. Есть группа посвящена новому сайту. Пожалуйста присоединяйтесь и, надеюсь, всем будет интересно.  Буду рада любым советам.

Some thoughts on honesty / Пара мыслей о честности

In art, искусство, наука, ethics, творчество, философия, philosophy on October 30, 2013 at 17:15

Firstly there is a debate what is science. Is it only study of the subjects that could be described mathematically or proven in a simple experiment? What about the studies of complex systems in geography, biology, human behavior? I think it is all just about honesty. Scientific approach is the honest one. This I know, this I don’t know, this I suggest. No fairies, special dreams or unquestionable authorities.

Secondly… Apparently it is common for some professional artists, when they find out that they don’t have long to live, to destroy the artwork they think is “substandard”. I could understand when an artwork is overpainted immediately as it finished because it is disliked – it makes sence. But if it was kept for years there must be some perceived value in it, maybe only sentimental. So what? Do we bother what people think about us when we do not exist any more? Who are we fooling? What about next generation artists, depressed because they seems to have “bad painting” days while apparently “old masters” never had them?

Часто спорят о том, что является наукой, а что нет. Якобы если изучается то, что можно однозначно описать формулой или повторить в эксперименте – это наука. Тогда непонятно, что же такое изучение сложных систем в географии, биологии, социологии и т.д. Ведь не гадание же на кофейной гуще! По-моему, научный метод – это просто честный метод. Это я знаю, это я не знаю, это я предполагаю. Никаких фантазий, видений или непререкаемых авторитетов.

Оказывается многие художники, когда узнают, что им недолго осталось жить, начинают уничтожать те свои работы, которые считают недостаточно сильными. Я могу понять, когда избавляются от только что законченного рисунка, потому, что он не нравится. Но если работа сохранена, значит что-то в ней было. Может быть, только для самого художника, но какая разница? Какое нам дело до того, что следующее поколение будет думать относительно нашей работы и наших чувств? Кого мы пытаемся обмануть, заметая следы таким образом? И как насчет молодых художников, которые будут страдать от того, что у их кумиров из прошлого никогда не было слабостей и неудач, а у них – полно?

Postery artwork and artish posters

In art, color, время, искусство, история, history, time, travel on June 17, 2013 at 19:59

When East and West, North and South embraced each other, when prints became produced and sold on global scale, when the way we see the world became firmly affected by photography… 1890s-1950s. Beautiful postery style, both decorative and realistic, traditional and modern, Oriental and European reigned. Areas of flat color, bold composition and outlines are very typical for this period.

Russian Ballet Programme

Portrait of Miss Elizabeth Keith by Ito Shinsui, 1922

   A Gate at the Stupa of Sanchi by Hiroshi Yoshida. 1932

‘Lanterns’ (1906) by American artist Bertha Lum (1869-1954)

Carl Moser “Strickende Frau mit Booten” 1926

And much, much more

Mezenskaya Folk Art Style

In black, искусство, красота, folk art, red, white on June 6, 2013 at 15:52

This style of painting fromed in early 19th century at the lower river Mezen region, far North of European Russia. It uses ancient simple, often geometrical elements and only three colors: red, black on white or yellow background.

The symbols used could be traced both to ancient Slavic ones

and ones used by Finno-Ugric peoples (e.g. Komi geometrical patterns). Sadly enogh, the Wikipedia article only lists Slavic roots of this folk art painting style.

Обескрыленная (Александра Кук) / философская лирика / Стихи.ру – национальный сервер современной поэзии

Религия – иссохший труп фантазии,
которую загнали в клетку догм,
и там она зачахла, обескрыленная…

There is a very nice folk art exhibition at the VAN Art Gallery (Shrewsbury Market). It probably will end up quite soon,  maybe on 27th – I am not sure.  There are some pictures.  All came from the same region of Zimbabwe.
