Melodies of Klimt by k Madison Moore Interior Paintings



Melodies of Klimt
 ©k.MadisonMooreFineArtInc.2014

11 x 14  Oil Painting of Interior on Canvas

Art within Art Series

Who doesn't love Klimt?  I always loved Klimt's work. I have done several works of my impression of Klimt. Each time I say, Oh, it will be easier this time as I have done so many. Not so. It always amazes me how many symbols he used in his works, symbols within symbols within.... I wonder what he was thinking? Every artist has a reason for what they paint and why? Many are never explained so we have only to guess what was on the artists mind when they painted that painting. Of course his works were a lot larger than mine so it actually makes it easier to paint all of those symbols.

In Melodies of Klimt, the paintings on the wall are "The Kiss" and 
Fulfillment - The Embrace. They are miniature paintings within this painting 2.5 x 3.5 inches and much more difficult to paint.
These are my two favorite Klimt paintings. What better way to express how you feel about that someone special.....
With and Big Hug and Kiss!

  

Gustav Klimt
Many of his paintings from this period used gold leaf; the prominent use of gold can first be traced back to Pallas Athene (1898) and  Judith I(1901), although the works most popularly associated with this period are the Portrait of Andele Bloch-Baie(1907) and The Kiss (1907–1908). Klimt travelled little but trips to Venice and Ravenna, both famous for their beautiful mosaics, most likely inspired his gold technique and his Byzantine imagery

Hotel Window Painting of Interior by k Madison Moore Inspired by Edward Hopper


Hotel Window

©kMadisonMooreFineArtInc.2014


22 x 30 Oil Painting of Interior on Canvas

Sold - Commission
On it's way to England
Thank you Eleanore


My collector was so great to work with. She gave me a list of ideas, colors and elements to make this composition hers. Hotel Window is her favorite painting by Edward Hopper. She shared several ideas with me and made it so much easier for me to design for her.
This painting projects how a room can be changed to reflect your favorite things or even a fantasy. Do you have a room in your house that you would like painted with all the elements you want and even paintings from the Masters hanging on your walls. If so, email me with your ideas and photos of your room.




Hopper’s evocative exploration of the theme of isolation in American urban life in the 20th Century. Depicting an elegantly dressed older woman seated on a navy couch in an anonymous hotel lobby staring absently out of a darkened window, the large-scale (40 by 55 in.) canvas expresses the loneliness and alienation that defined not only a certain aspect of American experience, but also, in the artist’s phrase, the “whole human condition”.  The pre-sale estimate is $10 to 15 million. Edward Hopper’s “Hotel Window” sold for $26.8 million
The stark light, spare setting and lone female figure create an atmosphere of unease and emptiness which characterized this genre’s particular brand of human disconnection.  Self-imposed solitude, the result of the individual’s disappointment in human interaction, was a societal ill that defined the American experience as depicted by both Hopper and the auteurs of contemporary fiction and film.  Hopper’s interest is not in telling a story, however, it is in the single image and its evocative possibilities”.
Of Hotel Window Edward Hopper himself wrote: “It’s nothing accurate at all, just an improvisation of things I’ve seen.  It’s no particular hotel lobby, but many times I’ve walked through the Thirties from Broadway to Fifth Avenue and there are a lot of cheesy hotels there.  That probably suggested it.  Lonely?  Yes, I guess it’s lonelier than I planned it really.”

Face to Face with Magritte Again Paintings of Interiors by k Madison Moore


Face to Face with Magritte Again

18 x 24 Oil Painting of Interior on Canvas


SOLD - COMMISSION

I am blessed that my paintings sell very quickly.
However, many collectors are interested in the same
paintings so I offer to re-paint similar to sold paintings
for them. I like to make changes so that each one is an
original for the collector.


This one is larger 18 x 24 than the first 14 x 18 to
work in a specific area for this collector. As you can see
we added Magritte's Eye for the carpet, changed the
colors to blues, more brilliant colors for the bricks,
 made some changes to our lady, added the dove
 in the mirror, lightened up the frames and several
other small changes. However, the original concept
still remains.

If you see paintings of my work that you like that
have already been sold, contact me with your 
specifications and I will design just for you.
You can also add elements that you would like to
have.

Enjoy

Thanks so much for the commissions

Face to Face with Magritte
14 x 18

Seeking to make “everyday objects shriek aloud,” or make the familiar unfamiliar, Belgian artist René Magritte created some of the 20th century’s most extraordinary—and indelible—images.
Throughout these seminal years, Magritte used displacement, transformation, metamorphosis, and the “misnaming” of objects as well as the representation of visions seen in half-waking states, consistently unsettling the balance between nature and artifice, truth and fiction, reality and surreality. His images, then and still today, force us to question the nature of appearances—both in the paintings and in reality itself.

Peter Max- Magic of Vibrant Color Palette

Peteг Maҳ?s famous pop art has become an iconic representation of Americana. Hiѕ work has rɑnged widely in thеmes over the course of his long standing career. Throughout his career however, Peter Max?s artwork has remained identifiɑble by his signature usе of vibrant color. This sіgnature vibrant color palette creates a magіc touch easily noticed in any Peter Max work. During his early career, Peter Max paintіngs became recognized as a part of the counteг culture due to his cosmic and psychedelic themes which often demonstrated an almost maǥical quаlity due to theiг use of bold colors.

Kopenhagen Show March 7 2014 Off the Wall Exhibit by k Madison Moore



Copenhagen Off The Wall Exhibit
©kMadisonMoore Fine Art Inc. 2014

40" x 50" Oil on Canvas
Contemporary Black and White Oil Painting

Commission

Last August I was requested to do a collaboration with a sculptor
in Copenhagen for an Exhibit in March in Copenhagen.

The painting on the wall was in part designed by her  in addition to
my creative efforts. She wanted the painting placed in a very contemporary room
painted in black and white. The show was in a very industrial scene
with concrete floors. In the photos below she placed the painting behind
the bench that she designed that is also in the wall painting. The painting
as the centerpiece for the show.

Thanks so much Merete Slynborg for the great collaboration and show.







The exhibition The Black Hand focuses on design, interiors and spacious shift in an exhibition context and the trend mechanisms that are at play in this regard. I wish to look at how concepts such as taste, trends and tendencies emerge and position themselves, as well as why some aesthetics are transient, while others remain. Through painting, digital print and sculpture, I want to place different styles and trends in contemporary works of art together with classical art historical references embedded in long cultural traditions and thereby erase the hierarchical boundaries, which usually differs crafts, contemporary art and design.
The painting (no title yet) is for me about artistic collaboration and exchanges between artists as well as it is an interest in the documentation of earlier works and how to work with space two dimensional. The work must also be seen as a historical interest in interior design as well as a study of the personal artistic expression.

Apart from the painting which I consider as the focal point of the exhibition. One of the gallery walls will be painted based on a series of studies of the gallery wall and the history of framing art works. The work takes its inspiration from the painter Giovanni Paolo Panini (1691 -1765) who made an extra spacious dimension of the representation of the exhibition space with painted walls covered with paintings, and Erich Buchholzs (1891-1972) geometric prints, producing his "studio" as a two-dimensional spacious surface. The work becomes a commentary on past thoughts and expressions as well as the movement in looking back. The wall will serve as a work in itself as well as a form of "natural" framing for two framed works.

The two framed works are digital prints. One with the interview The hopes and fear of a whole society are Reflected in the cut of a dress. It is a dialogue between the Danish curator Mette Woller, trend researcher Dr. Maria Mackinney-Valentin and me. Mackinney-Valentin research into consumer behaviour in relation to the status and representation in fashion. The other work is a framed photo of the original photo of the mural at Grimmuesum, Berlin.
The last work in the exhibition Loop Stand is an interpretation of the Danish design company HAY's Loop stand table which is a modern rebirth and development of the classic wooden table stand. The work is in paper clay and glazed red. There will only be produced one version and it will serve as an amputated sculptural comment on the modern classics and our common awareness of good taste as well as the financial aspect of this.

Merete Slynborg





Excerpts from the interview “The Hopes and Fears of a Whole Society are Reflected in the Cut of a Dress” with Dr. Maria Mackinney-Valentin, who holds an M.A. In literature from the University of Copenhagen and a Ph.D. in Trend Studies from the Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts, School of Design, Copenhagen. The interview is structured by Merete Vyff Slyngborg and art historian Mette Woller and was first published in the catalog MOTION DAZZLE, 2013

A Note from Merete

A lot of people have been asking about the painting and I think it made the whole show come together. I choose to hang it on the largest wall on it's own so that it would give the feeling of a center piece, when you walk in the room. The room is kind of rough with concrete floor and very industrial, and I think it gives a nice contrast to the painting and the interior motif. Hope you like it as much as I do.


If you have a special project that you would lie me to work on
with you please feel free to email me with your ideas.

6 x 8  Miniature Painting on Canvas

Pin-ups were artwork depicting idealized versions of what some thought a particularly beautiful or attractive woman should look like. An early example of the latter type was the Gibson girl, a representation of the  New Woman  drawn by Charles Dana Gibson  "Because the New Woman was symbolic of her new ideas about her sex, it the New 
Woman was symbolic of her new ideas aboutsex, it was inevitable that she would also come to symbolize new ideas about sexuality. Unlike the photographed actresses and dancers generations earlier, fantasy gave artists the freedom to draw women in many different ways.

14 x 18 Jeanne Lavin Fashion 
Oil Painting on Canvas



Being in the fashion industry when I was younger still lingers.
I designed many gowns for fashion show models and loved it
but I  loved painting more. This is my way of still being involved.
to now honor the great designers in the industry.
Jeanne Lavin was a wonderful prolific artist.


Jeanne Lanvin was born in Paris on 1 January 1867, the daughter of Constantin Lanvin and Sophie White. The eldest of 11 children, she became an apprentice  milliner at Madame Félix in Paris at the age of 16 and trained at dressmaker  Talbot  before becoming a milliner on the rue du Faubourg Saiint-Honore  in 1889.

In 1909, Lanvin joined the  Syndicat de la Couture , which marked her formal status as a couturier.  The clothing Lanvin made for her daughter began to attract the attention of a number of wealthy people who requested copies for their own children. Soon, Lanvin was making dresses for their mothers, and some of the most famous names in Europe were included in the clientele of her new  boutique on the  rue du Faubourg Saint-Honore.
Designs by Mme Lanvin in “La Gazette du Bon Ton”   1922
From 1923, the Lanvin empire included a dye factory in  Nanterre. In the 1920s, Lanvin opened shops devoted to home décor, menswear, furs and lingerie.

Miniature Paintings
PinUp Girls Series

6 x 8 Oil Painting on Canvas


In the late 19th century, burlesque performers and actresses used photographic advertisement as business cards to promote themselves. These adverts and business cards could often be found in almost every green room , pinned-up or stuck into "frames of the looking-glasses, in the joints of the gas-burners, and sometimes lying on-top of the sacred cast-case itself. Understanding the power of photographic advertisements to promote their shows, burlesque women self-constructed their identity to make themselves visible. Being recognized not only within the theater itself but also outside challenged the conventions of women's place and women's potential in the public sphere.

PinUp Girls Series
6 x8 Oil Painting on Canvas



This is my new Miniature Paintings Series. I am having so much
fun painting these small painting of PinUps. I will also be painting
them larger so if you have a request Please feel free to email me.


pin-up girl, also known as a pin-up model, is a model whose mass-produced pictures see wide appeal as popular culture. Pin-ups are intended for informal display, e.g. meant to be "pinned-up" on a wall. Pin-up girls may be glamour models , fashion models, or actresses.
These pictures are also known as  cheesecake photos. 
The term pin-up may also refer to drawings, paintings, and other illustrations done in emulation of these photos. The term was first attested to in English in 1941 however, the practice is documented back at least to the 1890s.
The pin-up images could be cut out of magazines or newspapers, or be from postcard or  chromo-lithographs,  and so on. Such photos often appear on calendars, which are meant to be pinned up anyway. Later, posters of pin-up girls were mass-produced and became an instant hit. As social standards changed, male subjects  also began to be featured in pin-ups.

11 x 14 Oil Painting of Interior on Canvas

Visit My Portfolio Here for more in this Series



Poor Frida. She worked so hard and then had a horrific accident that
changed her life forever. She painted in bed on an easel that her mother
had specially made for her.  She was alone so much that she used a mirror
and painted many portraits of herself and still life's of food and animals
that she could see immediately around her.

Later in life she married the famous Diego Rivera who encouraged her
as an artist and stood behind her. She seems to have been a very sting woman
in so many ways and had to will to keep going.

his is a tranquil room that I can see her relaxing in with many of her works
adoring the walls around her. Paintings, books and flowers surround her
in the Mexican themed room to give her peace and tranquility.

Enjoy!


"I never paint dreams or nightmares. I paint my own reality."

– Frida Kahlo


Artist Frida Kahlo was born on July 6, 1907, in Coyocoán, Mexico City, Mexico. Considered one of Mexico's greatest artists, Frida Kahlo began painting after she was severely injured in a bus accident. Kahlo later became politically active and married fellow communist artist Diego Rivera in 1929. She exhibited her paintings in Paris and Mexico before her death in 1954.
On September 17, 1925, Kahlo was riding in a bus that collided with a trolley car. She suffered serious injuries as a result of the accident, including a broken spinal column, a broken  collar bone, broken ribs, a broken pelvis , eleven fractures in her right leg, a crushed and dislocated right foot, and a dislocated shoulder. Also, an iron handrail pierced her abdomen and her uterus  compromising her reproductive capacity.
After the accident, Kahlo abandoned the study of medicine to begin a painting career. She painted to occupy her time during her temporary immobilization. Her self-portraits were a dominant part of her life when she was immobile for three months after her accident. Kahlo once said, "I paint myself because I am so often alone and because I am the subject I know best."
Her mother had a special easel made for her so she could paint in bed, and her father lent her his box of oil paints and some brushes.
Drawn from personal experiences, including her marriage, her  miscarriages, and her numerous operations, Kahlo's works are often characterized by their suggestions of pain.
Kahlo created at least 140 paintings, along with dozens of drawings and studies. Of her paintings, 55 are self-portraits which often incorporate symbolic portrayals of physical and psychological wounds. She insisted, "I never painted dreams. I painted my own reality."

Aside from the 1939 acquisition by the Louvre, Kahlo's work was not widely acclaimed until decades after her death. Often she was remembered only as Diego Rivera’s wife. It was not until the end of the 1970s and the early 1980s, when the artistic style in Mexico known as Neomexicanismo began, that she became well-known to the public.
As a young artist, Kahlo communicated with the Mexican painter, Diego Rivera, whose work she admired, asking him for advice about pursuing art as a career. He recognized her talent. He encouraged her artistic development and they began an intimate relationship. They were married in 1929, despite the disapproval of Frida's mother.

“We are always evolving into new, better versions of ourselves.
The comforting news is that we are never finished.
The idea of being unfinished is nice, for it always leaves room for improvement.
For trying new things, for developing new hobbies and making new friends.
Being unfinished means we can cry today, and next week  or next year we won’t cry for the same thing,
because we are moving, evolving. Becoming better versions of ourselves.”
Rachel Dowda

We are always evolving, for that is our nature, the way of all things. And while we may not realize it, we live, speak and listen from a perceptual vantage point that is unstable: our breath, sensory awareness, gut feelings, level of attention and thoughts—all that constitutes our present experience and internal landscape—are shifting and flowing.

Contemplation means "to admire something and think about it." The word contemplation comes from the  Latin word contemplation.
Contemplation was an important part of the philosophy of  Plato: Plato thought that through contemplation the soul may ascend to knowledge of the Form of Good or other divine Forms.
I wonder what she is Contemplating?

If you take the attitude of embracing change and finding the goo in it your life will be easier and happier.

Help for the Disabled Homeless by k Madison Moore

Homeless To Be Housed In Tiny House Village In Austin (VIDEO / PICS)





I saw this on Facebook as was so touched that this group is helping the disabled homeless
in Texas. So wonderful and inspiring and makes me feel even more grateful for everything I have.

Purchase a painting from me between now and the end of 2013 and you
will receive a discount price and a percentage of the funds will go to this
charity.

Happy Thanksgiving everyone.
Don't forget the less fortunate this holiday.



Just when we think the only news that comes out of Texas makes us all wince and groan, we find a story like this from the true heart of Texas — Austin. The Community First! Village is a program ofMobile Loaves & Fishes. It sits on a 27-acre master-planned community and will provide affordable, sustainable housing for approximately 200 chronically homeless disabled people in Central Texas.
“It will be a gated community who’s [sic] access is limited to the residents and their registered invited guests,” said project founder Alan Graham. (KVUE)
The motivation of Mobile Loaves & Fishes — and Graham — is their faith.
We’re not called to be successful. We’re called to be faithful.
He continued:
We’ve been really active in pulling people up off the street and into housing – housing that they pay rent on. We just help them get in the housing.




Residents of Community First! will work, with some using street vending carts to make a living. Graham explained:
We also have a giant wood shop where people are very gifted and talented in building things. So we want to empower people into a purposeful cultivating lifestyle of working.
The community has been in planning for 10 years, with Mobile Loaves & Fishes serving the Central Texas homeless population for 14 years. Homes include tiny cottages, mobile homes, and even tepees. Most kitchens and bathrooms will be communal.



Some of the amazing features of this little village:
  • A 3-acre garden
  • A medical facility
  • A workshop
  • A bed and breakfast in the form of an air stream motel
  • Tiny individual gardens for each home
  • An interfaith chapel in a separate cottage
  • A vintage outdoor movie theater that will do public screenings



 Tim League —  the founder of Alamo Drafthouse– is providing the movie theater and is a staunch supporter of the project. He calls it “the very first ‘yes, in my backyard’ project!” (News 90.5/KUT.org)
Graham said that it’s not been easy to convince everyone to be on board with helping homeless people, but they like the idea of the bed and breakfast and the movie theater. Well, and the fact that the folks will be working and paying rent.
We haven’t converted everybody [to the idea of housing the homeless], but when people come out here they go, ‘Oh!’ They see a chapel; they see medical and vocational services on site, and they learn that residents will not live there for free; they’ll pay a monthly rent. (News 90.5/KUT.org)

If that’s not enough, perhaps some Texans will take comfort in how this will affect the thing that really matters most to many of them: money. Graham points out that if 200 chronically homeless people become more self-sufficient, the $6.5 million project could save taxpayers in Central Texas approximately $10 million per year. Downtown Austin businesses expect to see a boon as 20 percent of Austin’s homeless will be taken off the streets, thereby motivating business owners and government officials to jump on board.







Community First! is funded entirely with private money and has raised half the funding it needs. They are expecting to complete the project and begin moving people in by 2015. To donate, click here. You can follow their progress by liking the Mobile Loaves & Fishes Facebook page.
Austin…it’s like a whole other country inside Texas.
