Artist: Maya Bloch

February 9, 2011

Lost at E Minor is a creative website that sends a weekly newsletter that often introduces me to new artists that I really like. I thought what they said really captured my response to Maya Bloch.

“Maya Bloch’s richly textured and moody paintings really mesmerize me. It’s amazing to see those eyes glaring at you from the blobs of swirled color.”

Google Art Project

February 2, 2011

A local company, ArtMedia, emailed a link to this really cool project Google has undertaken with some major museums. I love how you can see the works zoomed close up and you can save multiple views with notes and share them. There are still a few minor glitches with the interface but overall an amazing accomplishment.

One of my favorites is this amazing beaded piece, “No Woman, No Cry” by Chris Ofili at the Tate Museum. Be sure to zoom in and to look at the night version, too.
