Kandinsky Inspired Oil Painting by k Madison Moore


Studying Kandinsky

Inspired by Wassily Kandinsky

14 x 18 Kandinsky Oil Painting on Canvas


Just love getting into painting with Kandinsky, especially with his
red compositions. My signature color is red, just love it. In this painting
I am also expressing that in our daily lives, kids in schools and colleges
and most businesses, it is technology world with computers, cell phones
and tablets. 
What about the ever forgotten idea of books? Does anyone take
the time anymore to actually pick up a book and read it?  Do you own one?

There is still nothing like the feeling of the paper pages with words and photos
relaying a story. Technology is great but so were the simple times when we all read
books. Someone was here "Studying Kandinsky" maybe using this computer a bit
but also reading books. Love to include them in my paintings. Enjoy!

Kandinsky



Along with Piet Mondriaan and Kazimir Malevich, Kandinsky is considered a pioneer in abstract art, undoubtedly the most famous. He was a synaesthete who could, quite literally, hear colors. This effect of color was a major influence on his art, and he even named some of his paintings "improvisations" and "compositions" as if they were works of music and not painting. Works by Kandinsky have been recently sold for as much as US$25 million. Probably the largest collection of his paintings may be seen in the Centre Georges Pompidou, Paris.

The Mens Club - Linder Painting of Interior by k Madison Moore inspired by Richard Linder


Mens Club - Linder
Inspired by Richard Linder
©kMadisonMoore2014

Painting with The Masters
Art within Art Series

16 x 20 Interior Oil Painting on Canvas


SOLD
On it's way to Canada
Thanks MS


Once in awhile I like to paint geared more for my male collectors and fans.
However, if your a Linder fan this could be great for either male or female.
I love his crazy figures, especially of woman and their little bit of sexuality exposed.
Of course I always change things to make them mine but basically the same concept.

Richard Linder worked as an illustrator  for Vogue and Harpers Bazaar Magazines.
He started painting seriously in the year 1952. He held his first one man show in
1954. His style blends a mechanistic  cubism with personal images of robot like
figues, amazons and heroine's, harlequinades of self styled heroes - his artistic
panorama of the unruly 60's and 70's of the both century.

His favorite subject was very bazaar woman. Corsets and straps, emphasize
their sexual qualities. He had not hatred of woman and said he felt sorry for them.
"When I dress women in these corsets and contraptions in my painting, it's kind
of a way I see them wrapping themselves up."

His paintings used sexual symbolism of advertising and investigated definitions
of gender roles in the media.

Portrait of Frida Kahlo by k Madison Moore


Portrait of Frida Kahlo - "The Feminist"
©kMadisonMoore will not be on original painting

Forever Frida Series
16 x 20 x 2 Frida Kahlo Oil Painting on Canvas

I just loved painting this piece. It just went right
from designing to execution and it worked out just
as I intended it to. Just love when that happens.
I am getting to know her face well and enjoy painting her
and about her life. I found this wonderful article about her
being a feminist so I am going to share it with you.
For her time she was just so sassy and independent.
She drank and smoked all the time and didn't mind versing
her opinion and living her life the way she wanted and not
what was "expected" of a woman at that time. I admire that.
I admire her and what she stood for. I admire her as an artist
and all she had  to endure. This is long but worth it.
Enjoy!


Kahlo transformed the word “different” to “normal.” To this day, her work and her legacy attracts artists, as well as diverse groups such as feminists, gays, lesbians, communists, patients, the emotionally hurt and the politically active.

Here are five reasons why Frida is an icon of feminism and freedom:

1. Public bisexuality. Frida took pride in her sexuality. She liked to have both women and men in her bed. What primarily prompted her to have many extramarital affairs was Diego’s infidelity and his incapability of remaining sexually loyal to her. Eventually, the couple ended up having an open marriage. 
Frida openly made love to the women with whom Diego went to bed—such as the American actress,  Paulette Goddard. Diego didn’t have a problem with Frida broadening her sexual 
experiences with women, but he got outrageously jealous of the men she slept with—as Leon Trotsky. 

2. Defying the “female beauty” standards. Frida didn’t care to fit with the norm. She kept her “masculine” features untouched—she didn’t pluck her eyebrows, her mustaches or shave her armpit hair. It is said that she also darkened her eyebrows with a black pencil.
She created her own individual style, especially through her clothing. At the time, when women were keen on wearing tight dresses, Frida wore long skirts and loose shirts with vivid patterns. She braided fabrics into her hair and wore accessories that created a fashion frenzy across the world.Although Frida defied the standards of beauty in society, she’s still considered as one 
of the most attractive women.

3. Defying gender stereotypes. Women had few rights during the 1900s. At a time when men were seen as the dominant sex, it was expected of women to be housewives. Frida attended a co-educational school, something that was highly unusual in those days. Isabel Alcantara wrote,
in her book about Frida, “There were only about five girls to 300 boys at the school, and Matilde (Frida’s mother) was outraged at the thought that one of them was to be her daughter.”
Unlike other girls at school, Frida wore her hair parted and pulled back. She also appeared for family photos in men’s clothes.Not only did she dress like men did, but she also challenged 
men in drinking tequila. She continued drinking throughout her lifetime, despite her doctor’s firm disapproval.

4. Exploring intimate female experiences in her paintings. Again, during the 1900s, female experiences were private—but Frida publicized miscarriages, pregnancy, menstruation, operations, breastfeeding, infertility and sexual organs. Her paintings may seem disturbing at first, but they embody the challenges of being a woman.
She painted her self in a surrealist method that has shocked great painters across the world. Andre Breton, the French founder of surrealism, wrote of her work: “I must add that no other painting is so essentially feminine, for she fluctuates between wide-eyed innocence and sheer depravity in order to appear as seductive as possible.”
Her life and her artwork were directly interwoven with one another. Kahlo takes the viewer inside a woman’s mind and heart, and let us examine the fears, passion and suffering that secretly resides within us.

5. Politically active. Although she was born in Mexico, a country of tradition and Catholicism, Frida was an atheist and a proud communist. Despite her frequent health issues, Frida was an active member of the Communist party. She believed that only through Communism can we become human. She was also a Mexican patriot to a fault. She changed the year of her birth, 
from 1907 to 1910, to coincide with the Mexican revolution.
Kahlo had strong political convictions that were inspired by Marxist ideology. She wrote in her diary: “I’m convinced of my disagreement with the counterrevolution—imperialism, fascism, religion, stupidity, capitalism and the whole gamut of bourgeois tricks. I wish to cooperate with the revolution in transforming the world into a classless one, so that we can attain a better rhythm for the oppressed classes.”

Leon Trotsky, the exiled Marxist revolutionary with whom she had an affair, lived with her and Diego at  La Casa Azulfor two years. She also wrote about him: “I love Marx, Engels, Lenin, Stalin and Mao Tse as pillars of the new Communist world. Since Trotsky came to Mexico, I have understood his error. I was never a Trotskyist.”

Salvador Dali Inspired Painting, Watching Time by k Madison Moore




Watching Time
Inspired by Salvador Dali

Painting with The Masters
14 x 18 Dali oil painting on canvas

I recently painted an 8 x 8 Dali Inspired chair for my new 
Collectable Chairs Series "Take Seat. That painting inspired this painting. I love when that happens and now from this I have
yet another idea that I may paint at some point.

I love clocks so I love Dali too. 
I found a few titles for his Eye painting:
Subconscious Mind, Surrealist, Dreams, Subconscious.  
He sure did have a strange way of  "seeing things!"


The Persistence of Memory  is one of his most recognizable works. The painting has been in the collection of the Museum of Modern Art in New Your City, which received it from an anonymous donor. It is widely recognized and frequently referenced in popular culture and sometimes referred to by more descriptive (though incorrect) titles, such as 'The Soft 
Watches' or The Melting Watches.

The well-known Surrealist piece introduced the image of the soft melting socket watch.   Dali stated that the soft watches were inspired by the surrealist perception of a  Camembert  melting in the sun.

Salvador Dalí was born Salvador Felipe Jacinto Dalí y Domenech on May 11, 1904, in Figueres, Spain.
From an early age, Dalí was encouraged to practice his art and would eventually go on to study at an academy in Madrid. In the 1920s, he went to Paris and began interacting with artists such as Picasso, Magritte and Miro, which led to Dalí's first Surrealist phase. He is perhaps best known for his 1931 painting The Persistence of Memory, showing melting clocks in a landscape setting. 

The rise of fascist leader Francisco Franco in Spain led to the artist's expulsion from the Surrealist movement, but that didn't stop him from painting. Dalí died in 1989.





If you have an idea for a special painting just for you
or you would like me to design one for you, contact
me with your ideas or the artist that inspired you.

In this painting, The Acrobat, Picasso depicted the human figure with the cube of the frame despite the apparent freedom of movement. 

There's always room for one more little painting!

Fanciful and amusing oil paintings of

Claude Monet was born on 14 November 1840 in Paris. Monet's ambition of documenting the French countryside led him to adopt a method of painting the same scene many times in order to capture the changing of light and the passing of the seasons. From 1883 Monet lived in Giverny,  where he purchased a house and property and began a vast landscaping project which included lily ponds that would become the subjects of his best-known works. In 1899 he began painting the water lilies, first in vertical views with a Japanese bridge as a central feature, and later in the series of large-scale paintings that was to occupy him continuously for the next 20 years of his life.

Kandinsky heard music when he saw colors, especially when he was painting.

Kandinsky is believed to have had synaesthesia, a harmless condition that allows a person to appreciate sounds, colours or words with two or more senses simultaneously. In his case, colours and painted marks triggered particular sounds or musical notes and vice versa. The involuntary ability to hear colour, see music or even taste words results from an accidental cross-wiring in the brain that is found in one in 2,000 people, and in many more women than men.

Frida Kahlo - Thoughts of My Life, Oil painting by k Madison Moore


Thoughts of My Life - Frida Kahlo
Happy 110th Birthday Frida 

24" x 24" Original Frida Kahlo Painting on Canvas

I wanted to have this finished by July 6th, Frida's 110th birthday but it
is a large painting and took longer than I thought. It is amazing how she is celebrated.
There are festivals going on all over the US and especially in California where they will
be celebrating her birthday for this entire month so I will be also with  several more paintings.

I am especially happy about the way this one turned out and is the largest 
I have painted Frida thus far. I love the huge Magnolias surrounding her. They were her
favorite flowers. Her signature large jewelry had to be included and I will mention
that the silver is metallic paint and looks great.

Are you wondering what Frida is thinking about?

Below are Frida's thoughts and a copy will be included 
with the purchase of this
painting.



Frida Kahlo - thoughts of My Life

My name is Magdalena Carmen Frida Kahlo y Calderon

I was born July 6, 1907 in Mexico City, Mexico. I was the seventh daughter of Guillermo Kahlo, a successful German photographer who emigrated to Mexico from Pforzheim, and of a Mexican- Indian mother. Matilde Calderon y Gonzalez. My father encouraged my interest in art, photography and archaeology. My mother was no so well educated and was also very religious.

At the age of 6, I suffered an attack of poliomyelitis which left me with a deformed leg. Exercise and determination helped me make a good recovery.  At 14 I enrolled into one of Mexico’ s best schools hoping to forge a good education and become a medical doctor.

On September 17, 1925 I suffered a serious injury in a traffic accident in Mexico City and broke my spinal column and pelvis in three places as well as my collar bone and two ribs and a rod piercing my abdomen. My right leg already deformed from Polio was shattered and fractured in 11 places and my foot was dislocated.

I spent the next month in the hospital and another 3 months at home recuperating, followed by 32 operations during my lifetime. My father made a special easel for me so I could paint in bed. During my recovery “I painted many self portraits because am the person I know best.” My prolonged illness gave me the opportunity to rethink my life and become a painter in spite if all my discomfort and pain.

I met my future love and husband Diego Rivera when he painted a mural at my school in 1923. We met again on 1927 and began an affair. Although my mother objected to me dating Diego, mostly because of our age differences, he was 20 years older than me. She felt we looked awkward together as I was only 5’3” tall and 100 lbs and he weighed nearly 300 lbs and was 6’ tall. We were married in traditional Catholic ceremony in 1929.

Melancholia, illness, separation, divorce and re- marriage marked our relationship. Diego was a womanizer and our marriage was stormy. I was frustrated by our marriage so I had several affairs including with the revolutionary Leon Trotsky in 1938. My career as an artist was highly successful and took me around Mexico City, New York and Europe.

Diego and I divorced early 1940 and soon after my health deteriorated. My moderate to heavy drinking and chain smoking and a steady diet of candy exacerbated my infirmity. In the early 1930’s I developed an atrophic ulcer on my right foot and had several toes amputated and eventually lost my leg.

Diego and I reconciled and were re-married on his 54th birthday, December 1940 in San Francisco California. Following the amputation of my leg in 1953 I became a recluse and more deeply depressed. I and was loosing the will to live. I was found dead at home in Mexico City on July 13, 1954 from kidney failure and liver and heart failure. Some believe I committed suicide by taking an overdose of my pills. No-one will ever know accept me.

Owls Painting, Whooo's in The Attic by k Madison Moore


Whooo's in The Attic?

Another Dream come true. I love it when I dream about art and then
execute it as a painting and it works! Sometimes I wish my brain would just stop 
working so I could sleep sounder but most times this does not happen with an insomniac.
It is like your asleep but you think your awake so at least something good comes out of it.

Owls are my favorite birds. I wish I could have a few but it is totally illegal to own
them so I just have to enjoy what I have in my trees on my property. I love to hear all
the who's!

Imagine having a bunch of them and hanging out with them in a big attic under
the moonlit starry sky. Here Mr Owl decided that he would be the artist and paint
portraits of his friends.

My last owls painting was so popular that I am still selling prints
of it I am hoping for the same with this one.
Enjoy

Dora Marr, the photographer and painter who was Picasso’s lover and the principal model for many of his weeping woman portraits in the late 1930’s and 40’s. After their relationship ended she suffered from depression and opted to live in reclusion, living in the shadow of the image that Picasso created for her. Picasso said, I could never see her, never imagine her, except for crying. Is Dora thinking about Picasso here?

Pink Nude Oil Paintings, Modesty I and II by k Madison Moore


Modesty I and II

Emotions in Color Series

2 - 12 x 16 Pink Nude Oil Paintings on Canvas


These were fun to paint but you would think they would be easy
and they were not. Trying to blend colors in such a narrow space was
a challenge but I love the way they turned out.

I think they look great together but may be purchased separately 
as well. They are very "Modest" and contemporary so they would 
be nice in a living room, bedroom or anywhere.

 Frames are for display only so you can see how they look framed.
   The sides are painted so you really do not need frames. Either way looks great!

8 x 8 Lichtenstein Oil Painting on Canvas

Take a Seat Series
Fanciful and amusing oil paintings of
Chairs and Miniature Paintings

Another fun, colorful small painting or my new series.
Always love painting with primary colors and Pop Art is
so fun and brings back my comic book days.


Roy Fox Lichtenstein was an American Pop Artist during the 1960's along with Andy Warhol and Jasper Johns. He became a leading figure in the new art movement. His work  defined the premise of Pop Art through parody.

Roy Lichtenstein was one of the most influential and innovative artists of the second half of the twentieth century. He identified with Pop Art, a movement he helped originate. His fully achieved paintings were based on imagery from comic strips and advertisements and rendered in a style mimicking the crude printing process of newspaper reproduction.
