Bravo’s Work of Art Wednesday!

Wednesday, November 23rd, 2011

No blog prompt today just your basic yakity yak about…

I feel good because I had a sound night’s sleep! I am rested AND, stress free because we will be traveling no where on this Thanksgiving eve! I am not fond of traveling unless its for some foreign or exotic adventure to a place I’ve never been. I’m happy to see family but I rather they do the traveling and I do the cooking 😀 But this year no one is coming over and we are going out to a restaurant since we have no kitchen sink, its in the process of being replaced. I won’t need to cook or clean, YAY! for no pressure holidays. Anyway, I try to be thankful/grateful daily, its a way of life and I’m no Pollyanna, but a mantra of positivity and appreciation can only be good. If you are traveling, my best wishes for a safe and swift trip and a memorable drama free Thanksgiving dinner!

Tonight, a serious bit of fluff entertainment, my guilty pleasure WOA!! It probably won’t be nearly as entertaining without the amusing “Sucklord”, but we’ll see! love to hear your thoughts if you watch it…*edit* not back on till 11/30

Today I’ll be packing and printing as I have recently made a few art sales. Then a bit of cleaning and walking the pugsters. I attached a coupler to their leash so seeing eye dog sassy could take the lead for blind boy, Balthazar. It works great!

Yesterday on our walk, in the midst of all green there is a single orange leafed tree, it looks like its on fire! What a stunning tree it is, and you can’t tell in this photo but the leaves are nearly neon in their coloration and glow, so so pretty! Nature can truly be a work of art 😀

Life’s gifts, like a flaming orange tree, so much to be thankful for!

Saboteuring Mean Girls on Bravo’s Work of Art

Thursday, November 17th, 2011

Double ughs, Michelle and Lola. Lola rationalizing about cutting in lines as a child because her impatient mother could not wait shows that her inclination for bullying is inherited. Her annoyance with Kymia because she is polite and has manners reveals just how little she cares about her own character, but then, “mean” girls aren’t about caring, they are about, demeaning, or ignoring others to make their selves feel superior. Michelle and Lola sitting around laughing at their own poor behavior, buying in to each others self righteous folly, is revealed in the content of their piece. Once you get behind the surface and imagine yourself the voyeur as they suggest, you are confronted with devious behavior and debauchery. This is taken further by deliberately and repeatedly trying to sabotage others work as they giggled with joy at their “mischievous” actions. They should have been eliminated for that. Granted, yes in real life, street art is tagged, but the act of tagging is different from the act of creating a work of art that is about to be judged for a tv show. They make the Sucklord look classy. While I liked the sort of no holds barred approach at letting their imaginations go, the whimsey, the silly, the contrary-ness of their choice of imagery, the actual art work fell flat. Difficult to see, poorly composed and not big or bold enough to fit the scale of the wall. Visually or conceptually they didn’t pull it off.

Speaking of Sucklord, the most entertaining aspect of the show has now been eliminated, there won’t be quite as many laugh out loud moments.

Young and Dusty’s piece was cool, but did not really have a street art vibe. I liked the way they put there differences aside to really come together in a very compatible way, but I like Kymia’s and Sarah J’s piece best. The big bold imagery fit the space, was interesting, and clearly something was uprooted.

I hope Dusty wins and I can’t wait to see him scrunched into young’s short shorts LOL!!

I loved the little white dress that China Chow wore for them to paint on. I had to kind of suck my teeth at Simone de Prury’s attempt at being cool by adding to the sucklord’s boob spots, oh brother :b hahah

Work of Art/the next Great Artist

Friday, April 9th, 2010

I blogged about my experience auditioning over a year ago for Sarah Jessica Parkers up coming reality show on Bravo.

well, finally a sneak preview of the fourteen artists chosen and some glimpses into the show:

Work of Art

Like most reality shows this one will probably be formulaic. I’ll still watch, maybe there will be some interesting banter and maybe even some interesting art~~

UPDATE: BRAVO’S “WORK OF ART”
“Is America ready for art criticism? Because plenty of art criticism is definitely part of the mix in the Bravo cable television channel’s newest reality show, “Work of Art: The Next Great Artist,” which is slated to debut on June 9, 2010, at 11 pm (with the subsequent nine shows airing at 10 pm). Check out the show’s new website, featuring the familiar mugs of some beloved art-world insiders”.

“How is it? Fascinating, full of snappy edits, with scenes of the artists talking, working and stressing out, all in one big shared studio. The nude — arguably a key ingredient when it comes to art and popular appeal — makes an all-too-brief appearance. The competing artists, who are all identified here, are cute, though fairly conventional in their art-making; the show could have benefited from a Duchampian or two. “Work of Art” has some drama, though the participants don’t display much cut-throat art-world competitiveness, at least not in the first episode.”
