Sol LeWitt, American conceptual artist, believes in superiority of idea over object. In 1987, he sold an intangible concept [an idea for an artwork that doesn't really exist] at an auction - for the concrete sum of $26,400. Legal ownership was indicated by a typed certificate, which specified that the artwork [10,000 lines about 10" long, covering the wall evenly] should be executed in black pencil. The owner has the right to reproduce the piece as many times as he likes. If you reproduce it you'd only have a fake - despite the fact that LeWitt would not have picked up the brush in either case!
This is a wonderful blog I came across and truly, could not find time to post it. It covers interior ideas, amazing photographs and one could easily be attracted towards its Indian, rustic feel which flows through the entire blog. The photographs on this blog are so captivating and honestly speaking, they match my taste. So, enjoy exploring this blog!
When I saw the Sketchbook project 2011 for the first time, I had no idea I would come this far. I thought it was not possible for me to fill in a sketchbook on a specific deadline when I had office work to manage. Still, I gave it a shot and it resulted in this. We all make errors and sometimes regret them, but this is one of those times where I committed to some project, made errors and they turned out to be right! The theme I chose was [your name here] and have shown various ways to depict the same.
Recently I gathered all my left-over paints from school time (yes, some of them have survived ) and sat down to just paint. This were some of the consequences of my hand painting(hate using a brush at times).
