An iPad Canvas

IPAD ART, WHAT'S THAT?

  If you asked me that question a year ago, I may not have had the answer.  The Arts have been a large part of my life.  About a year ago, I happened upon an article regarding a famous international artist from England.  After decades of traditional painting he traded his canvas and brushes for an iPad and stylus.  He continues to create beautiful works.

This piqued my interest, so I picked up my iPad and started on a new journey.  The first thing I did was look for an app.  Most apps were good but very technical.  I wanted to paint as I always had "free hand"  and after searching the available apps, I came upon one that worked for me.  All of the tools are in a digital wooden art set. This includes Oils,  Acrylics, Pastels, Pens, Charcoal, and Brushes of all shapes and sizes. Just about everything  you'll ever need.

 It took me a few months to find my style. I compare it to songwriting in this respect.  In songwriting you need a ''Hook,''  something that makes your song unique so people will want to hear it over and over again. In my opinion, this relays to art as well. You want people to see a painting and know it's yours.  My Hook in iPad painting is that all my paintings are done on a Black background.

  Whether you're a professional artist or just want to express yourself, I believe you'll find iPad art fun and rewarding. Oh and yes, when you're done with your painting,  there's nothing to clean up :)

Happy IPad Painting!

           Michele

Taking the Measures of Sexism in the Arts

I told my English professor that I learned Art History in high school and he asked me what I knew about Louise Bourgeois. I had never heard of her, in fact, I almost exclusively learned about Euro-American and French men in art, literature, and music; the Western Canon is entirely based on the male perspective. Once I questioned why that was, that’s when I learned about systematic oppression of females, and ultimately, feminism

Louise Joséphine Bourgeois
Despite encouraging signs that women are being more represented in the arts, there are still major systemic problems. Don’t get me wrong: women artists are far more recognized for their work today than they were 45 years ago. However, women have been historically denied in the arts and are still inferior in the art world. The institutional power structures actually exist today and make it quite hard for women to achieve artistic excellence on the same footing as men. 

The more closely you consider world art statistics, the more obvious it becomes that decades of post-colonialism, anti-racist, feminist, and queer activism stem from white, American, heterosexual, upper-middle class men. Sexism has been active since the founding of our fathers, and it still goes unrecognized in the culture of art. 

“The men like to put me down as the best women painter. I think I’m one of the best painters,” Georgie O’Keeffe said. 

“I’ve always been terrified every moment of my life — and I’ve never let it keep me from doing a single thing I wanted to do.”

 Sculpture by Bourgeois in the Domestic Incidents
group exhibit at London's Tate Modern Turbine
Hall, 2006. 

Museums


Of all the exhibitions at the Whitney Museum in 2007, 29 percent went to females. Statistics have improved though. In 2000, the Guggenheim Museum in New York City dedicated zero shows by women. Discrimination against women in the arts has become most present in gallery representations and museum exhibitions. In 2014, the well-known Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA) had 80 percent male exhibitions. So did New York’s classic Museum of Modern Art (MOMA). 

But the above statistics are in the United States alone. In France and Germany, only 16 percent of female artists were represented in museum exhibitions in 2007. In the United Kingdom, only 22 percent of exhibitions were dedicated to female artists over the course of seven years, according to ArtNews. The facts are imbalanced and the ratio of male-to-female artists in exhibitions is unacceptable. 

Galleries


Gallery statistics show that only 10 to 30 percent of women artists are in galleries, according to ArtNews. Women painters, drawers, and creators are excluded from galleries and put down because of their gender. 

“I’ve always wondered, like, what is so masculine about abstraction? How did men get the ownership over this?” said Cecily Brown in ArtNet News. 

In the Press


In our fast-paced, technology-centered world, women still get less coverage than men in publications, advertisements, and other periodicals. Men are more likely to be on the cover of art magazines than women. For instance, in Artforum, a female artist was only featured on the cover once in 2014. In the magazine’s “Best Of” 2014 issue, just roughly 32 percent of women artists were featured out of 95 slots. 

But art publications aren’t the only periodicals that misrepresent women and emphasize men artists. Male musicians get more radio time than female musicians. Music Machinery published an article on “Gender Specific Listening” and VoiceBunny published a study, “Should You Go With a Male or Female Voice Over?” which both focus on how consumer’s respond to male voices in advertisements versus female voices. 

Males directed 96 percent of the top movies over the past 13 years, according to Glamour Magazine. In the 2014 edition of ArtCompass, 83 of the 100 “Great Artists” were male… that’s 83 percent! Why are all the “great artists” men? 


How to Improve the Facts


The world needs to be more fearless and consistently outspoken when it comes to art inequality, feminism, and women in the arts. If people cannot recognize the truth or accept the fact that women are misrepresented in the art world, then the problem will forever exist. Drawing on the history of feminism and analyzing artist statistics can make you more aware on the growing concerns of sexism.

The ideal art studio for an intuitive energy artist

Ilisa Millermoon
I'm an Intuitive Energy Artist. When using the method of Intuitive Energy Art to create, you have no preconceived idea of what the final outcome will be. It is always an Adventure! You hone in on your Inner Voice and let your Spirit guide you with the materials you are working/playing with. You do not need to focus on techniques or mechanics because there is no “right” or “wrong” way to express yourself while you are creating. The results are amazing! Often when you look at your creation a week or two later you’ll see images that reflect what your Inner Voice was telling you.

My home is my Sanctuary, my Happy Place, and my studio is my Sacred Space. Your Sacred Space for Creativity can be an entire room or a small table in the corner of your room. Make it clear that this is your Sacred Space for Creativity and no one may use it without your permission. Gather the materials you'd like to work with and organize them in a manner that makes you feel at ease and comfortable in you Sacred Space for Creativity.

Create an Altar with the items that honor your Creative Spirit. The altar serves as an acknowledgment that you value your Creative Spirit. That you truly do hold it Sacred. Your altar can be arranged on a small table, a windowsill or a shelf in a bookcase. Your altar is Sacred and no one else should be permitted to monkey with it. Find items that represent your creativity. This is a reflection of you, feel free to make it completely your own!

Where does my inspiration come from? You may have heard the phrase, "Find your pain and you'll find your Purpose". Growing up in a community that considered women to be "Less Than", by both men and women, it has become my Mission to Celebrate the Strength, Passion and Divinity of Women through my artwork. I'd love to hear from you, and how you've set up your Sacred Space for Creativity!

How do I check an image size?

We feel your pain. We hear from artists all over the world about their confusion surrounding image size. Painters aren't experts in Photoshop. We get it. So, here are a few videos we found on Youtube that may help guide you towards finding out if your photographed artwork is high resolution enough for the magazine. Keep in mind, our magazine is printed so the DPI must be 300.


Minimum requirements: 300 dpi and 5 inches for the shortest length (side) of the image.

Check out other commonly asked Questions / Answers before submitting your artwork.
