Day 4 #thotachallenge ▶️ #10days 10 artworks that changed my view on the #artworld 🖼 We live in a selfie-obsessed world🤳🏼we play with it, we sometimes cringe but even museums embrace them now🤳🏼! ❓Could you precisely date the year they all became part of our visual culture? Look no further than #cindysherman 🔎 Cindy Sherman turned #photographyart on itself📸, inventing the #artselfie in the process while leaving us with the most haunting images of the many facets human nature can adopt📷. So what was the defining year? Answer in my Stories👆 If she accepts I nominate my art friend @ninamdivani to join the challenge! #10dayartchallenge #arthistory #artwriter #visualart #10artworksin10days #artchallenge #contemporaryart #finephotography #artphotography #reinvention #photography #artlovers #photographylovers #womanartist #visualculture #artinfluencer

Countless runs by Malcolm Jones, Green Flash (2002) have always left me disappointed because it is always too squashed up against an ugly building and other eyesores. Oh, but on a ☔️rainy day☔️how I love its fluorescent colors against a grey sky AND a totally deserted #pacificbeach boardwalk meant all 🚲rental #electricbike 🚲 aligned nicely for me💞 #malcolmjones #greenflash #rideshare #uber #jumpbike #ebike #boardwalk #pbsandiego #streetphotography #artrun #runforart #publicart #publicartfund #sandiegoart #artsandiego #acrylicart #sculpture #artlife #publicsculpture #brightart #colorfulart #artshare

Day 3 #thotachallenge ▶️10 days 10 artworks that changed my view on the #artworld 🖼 I won’t keep to a linear chronology because my days never do ⏳Today let’s look at the one and only #olafureliasson 🔎 His art is an optic de-light, splitting #light and #space into all the #colors of the visible spectrum🌈His art visually presents the science of #optics , in all its action, reaction, #reflection , refraction and #projection . Also known for his climate change stance, I have put a few installations I personally experienced in my Stories👆 Thank you for nominating me @dynamisk 😘 If she accepts I nominate my art friend @mylondonpassion to join the challenge! #interactiveart #10dayartchallenge #arthistory #visualart #10artworksin10days #artchallenge #tanyabonakdargallery #magenta #cyan #yellow #projectionart #lightart #lightandspace #contemporaryart #thespeedofyourattention #perceptualart #artlovers

Different take on blue💙 with this pure retinal shock back from @macba_barcelona Latifa Echakhch, A chaque stencil, une révolution (2007). For more blue 💙, check my new blog in which recent find of lapis lazuli in a Medieval nun’s teeth (article on @artnet ) made me revisit materiality in art.

Join me in the #thotachallenge which consists in posting over 10 days 10 artworks that changed my view on the #artworld 🖼 If she accepts I nominate my art friend @thegirlinthegallery to join the challenge! For Day 1, let’s take a look at #fayum portraits 🔎 These are funerary portraits dating 1st-3rd century AD, painted by Greek Egyptian painters during the Roman occupation of Egypt. Applied on #mummies ⚱️like funerary masks, they are one of the earliest form of #portraiture . ⚱️Any visual similarities with #byzantineicon must face the conundrum of hundreds of years between the sudden demise of these portraits (when Christianity brought very different burial recommendations) and the apparition of icons. ⚱️Such #encaustic portrait techniques may have been secretly transmitted by generation of artists themselves, since none of the buried Fayum portraits were available for observation and practice. 🔎Want to know more?

Red-lipped art💋by Jaume Plensa from my time in Chicago back in April. Why now? 1/ Because Crown Fountain (2004) is such an unexpected Jaume Plensa, as unexpected as the rainy weather headed our way here ☔️☔️ and 2/ Maybe I see too much? 😅 #jaumeplensa #crownfountain #milleniumpark #grantpark #publicfountain #waterart #chicagoweather #interactiveart #videoart #publicart #installationart #chicagoskyline #throwbacksaturday #spanishartist #contemporaryart
