Bob Ross, oh you gentle soul.

TV personality, painter Bob Ross

Before I start, I urge you to go on Youtube and look up Bob Ross RIGHT NOW if the name sounds unfamiliar to you. My first episode of “Joy of Painting” was at middle school when the whole show was broadcast on cable TV in Korea. What a peaceful world he painted! His soft voice, gentle demeanor and that puffy hair. He made a quite an impression on me.

If you are an artist, you must have an opinion about Bob Ross and his teaching approach. Anti-Bob Ross states his students end up painting exactly like him due to rote method of learning.

Honestly? I think he was a brilliant teacher who believed in everyone’s potential regardless of his/her artistic talent. Furthermore, he brought me down to earth in that I came to realization art doesn’t always have to be serious and complex. It could be comforting, pleasing with simple context although it may not suffice museum collection requirements. Not everyone creates art wishing to make in prominent museum collections, right? Plus, didn’t Bob Ross make art education (not college-level though) accessible to public?

With that thought, I’d like end this posting with hilarious video on Youtube. Hope you enjoy Picasso vs. Bob Ross rap battle!

How Has Art Shaped Female Beauty Ideal?

What do you SEE in a work of art?

It could be fashion, architecture, famous myth, scenery, maybe even skillful use of light or brilliant color combination. What I began to notice when studying art history was distinguishing female beauty ideals that vary in time and region. Hmm.. You are not so sure?

This is going to be a very typical comparison that you may find in every intro art history book, but it’s simple as it is. These two images are distinctive representations of Venus. In The Birth of Venus by Botticelli, the goddess of beauty is manifested with sexual, well-proportionated body figure and light skin with rosy cheeks.

Venus of Willendorf, Limestone, 28,000 B.C.E – 25,000 B.C.E.

This Venus figurine from 22,000 B.C.E., on the other hand, has far different characteristics on its physicality. You can’t draw many beauty standards from it, but one thing is loud and clear: she’s got huge breasts and hips. Probably that was the parameter of female beauty ideal many centuries ago.

This is just a tiny snippet of what art history can tell us about female beauty ideals. Check out more on ARTSY.

Understanding What You Lack of through Art

I believe in destiny. I feel a special bond with someone who I happen to meet despite all the odds. I felt that way strongly about sound artist Christine Sun Kim. Perhaps I could’ve been able to connect to her rather easily because of our similar cultural background. I was a lonesome international student from Korea in college surrounded by colleagues who don’t get my struggles every inch. Full of self-doubt, I was then desperate to find a mentor figure or inspiration who made it in art as an immigrant.

Along the way, I had a delightful encounter with Christine Sun Kim first time. One of the galleries at school had her over for a short term artist-in-residence program. I missed the artist talk because of schedule conflict and in retrospect I don’t think I cared for it as much.

Thank god I had a roommate who attended the talk and filled me in with what a fascinating work Kim does! Christine Sun Kim was born deaf. But her art is about sound. She communicates with the world about her relationship to sound and language through art that are made interactive and inviting. You’re challenged to navigate a basic sense that’s taken for granted within her work: hearing. Take Kim’s words from the Guardian below:

“Being deaf in a world of sound is like living in a foreign country blindly following the cultural rules, customs and behaviours without ever questioning them … Sound is almost like money and power. It’s so powerful that it could either disempower me and my art, or empower me. I chose to be empowered.”

So yes, it was my huge loss not going to her talk. Returning to Korea, I thought I’d never see her work again, but surprisingly she was one of the participant artists at the media biennial in Korea. With all my heart, it felt like a destiny. Not everyone gets a second chance, do they? I finally participated her performance on site (even better), which cleared out my curiosity for unknown subject to some extent.

Again it’s a genuine embodiment of Felix Gonzalez Torress’s words: your limitations should be your strengths. Kudos for Christine Sun Kim.

You rock, Google Arts & Culture!

I can’t be the only one constantly astonished by Google’s grand ambition and vision. When they launched Google Arts & Culture, it came off as a shock to me.

To elaborate my reaction, I have to admit my nerdy side (just like others) and one of the long overdue wishes– seeing Mesopotamian Ziggurat or Bodhgaya’s Buddhist temple in real life (right?) or my favorite old masters’ work all in one place. By reading related articles, I could almost get a tad closer look of historical ruins or artwork, but mere referencing images never fulfilled my curiosity or unanswered questions. In my head, I was screaming, ‘can someone please come up with something, maybe like 3-D rendering models?’ To be honest, searching through all the museum databases one by one can be tedious and exhausting. Photographic evidences on textbook were never enough to satisfy my academic thirst, so what could I have possibly done other than dreaming? In that sense, Google Arts & Culture made my dream come true.

 

 

I hope for BBuzzArt to serve a similar role as Google in the near future for art collectors and art enthusiasts in discovering fresh, new, imaginative, young artists from every corner of the world.
