Winter is coming but at Artsation we let colors shine! The former chief editor of German publication Joy Isabell Flohr showcases a forceful brushwork and bold colors in her paintings such as Sumo (2011), (150 x 150 cm). Flohr’s oeuvre is full of energy and will vitalize any room with its sheer intensity. Throughout the day we’ll post more colorful paintings of amazing artists. For further information visit our website at www.artsation.com. We also wish you a nice day !
It’s Autumn so we want to offer you some artworks that fit perfectly in your collection of this fall. One Artist you have to know is Thomas Demand. The artist recreates photographs out of paper and cardboard, in a scale that is true to the original size of the setting. Demand then photographs these sculptures. And this is what you get. A complete illusion of reality. Visit our website at artsation.com for more artworks.
Inspired by the melancholy of autumn, the Artsation team has put together some artworks that capture the sublime and moody atmosphere of this season. Hiroshi Sugimoto’s work Time Exposed: # 312 Pacific Ocean for example manages to depict the meditative silence, which we associate with autumn. Andy Warhol on the other hand is more interested in the lively and fiery color palette of an autumn forest as can be seen in his silkscreen print Neuschwanstein. A more subdued and calm approach awaits us at the lakeshore of Lorenz Estermann’s large-scale photograph Fisherman’s House I. In his linocut Coleman’s Pond Alex Katz also uses a calmer and subtler aesthetic similar to Sugimoto and Estermann. Working with muted colors and artful lines Katz succeeds in suggesting an autumnal pond despite the high degree of abstraction.
