Tim’s Vermeer: A Penn & Teller Film, Now on iTunes

tims_vermeer

Has anyone seen this movie?

 

 

The documentary follows an inventor (Tim) as he recreates a Vermeer painting. Tim is mystified by how Vermeer could have painted so realistically before the invention of photography.

 

 

Even if the subject matter doesn’t grab you – it’s fascinating to watch. If for nothing else, just to see the lengths Tim will go to in search of discovery.

Henri Matisse The Cut-Outs….Now at the MoMA

photo-4photo-11¬†photo-12¬†¬† ¬† ¬†Unless you are a Fine Artist by trade – I think it’s rare to leave an art exhibit thinking, “i’d like to go home and try that myself.”

 

I was looking around in the gift shop after seeing the Matisse Cut-Out show at the MoMA, when the charming little tin glue-can above caught my eye (comes with a brush that fits perfectly in the center). Naturally, I had to get it (along with a pad of construction paper in order to rediscover my inner Matisse).vence-explore¬† ¬†I think what’s especially nice about the cut-outs exhibit is that it feels so approachable (who didn’t spend at least a couple childhood afternoons cutting and pasting together colorful sheets of paper, creating odd and abstract shapes).

 

Matisse used this technique to find harmony between line and color. He was able to cut directly into the painted paper and “draw with scissors” as he so smartly put it.
