      • FRUITS OF LABOUR (2014)


        from LISA CASTAGNER Added 124 0 0

        ‘Fruits of Labour’ is an experimental video intended as a response to a flower painting by the 17th Century Dutch still-life painter, Maria van Oosterwijck, during my stay as an artist-in-residence in Amsterdam. However, having been denied access to the original due to the museum's renovation works, this work became about a failed encounter, and the resulting attempts to connect with her work through other means. The texture of the work is fragmented, twitchy, aggressive, unsettled; content that collides in the search for meaning. What I have produced is a deconstruction and reconstruction of my experience in Amsterdam; the gap between intentions and results, my attempts to connect with the artist's work, and with the locality - the women, the food, the sounds - and with my own state of not knowing over the three month period. This is a polyvocal portrait of myself and other female individuals in the midst of creativity and daily life, looking to form their identity and purpose from what is available around us.

                  • Jan Vermeer "A Rendeira" de Jan Vermeer


                    from Filipe Goulão Added 165 1 0

                    The Lacemaker is a painting by the Dutch artist Johannes Vermeer (1632-1675), completed between 1669–1670 and held in the Louvre, Paris. The work shows a young woman dressed in a yellow shawl bent in concentration as she sews the threads of a dress. At 24.5 cm x 21 cm (9.6 in x 8.3 in), the work is the smallest of Vermeer's paintings, but in many ways one of his most abstract and unusual. The girl is set against a blank wall, probably because the artist sought to eliminate any external distractions from the central image. As with his The Astronomer (1668) and The Geographer (1669), it is obvious that the artist undertook careful study before he executed the work; the art of lacemaking is portrayed closely and accurately. Vermeer probably used a camera obscura while composing the work: many optical effects typical of photography can be seen, in particular the blurring of the foreground. By rendering areas of the canvas as out-of-focus, Vermeer is able to suggest depth of field in a manner unusual of Dutch Baroque painting of the era. In The Lacemaker, the artist presents the various elements which compose both the girl's face and body as well as the pattern of the material she is working on in an abstract manner. The girl's hands, the curls of her hair and the T-cross which form her eyes and nose are all described in an abstract manner unusual for the era in which Vermeer worked. In addition, the red and white of the lace is shown as spilling from the sewing cushion with physical properties suggesting a near liquid form. The blurring of these threads contrasts sharply with the precision of the lace she is shown working on.
