The Block 2022: Tom and Sarah-Jane’s rookie paint mistake leaves the crew in hysterics Sun, 07 Aug 2022 10:28:51 +0000

that of the block Tom and Sarah-Jane couldn’t have been happier with their rapid progress during the House Decider challenge in Episode 1.

But the Melbourne-based married couple soon learned the hard way that being so proactive late at night doesn’t always pay off.

After bragging that their plasterers had done “such a good job” on their bedroom walls, the couple decided to prime them with a coat of primer to stay ahead of the game.

“Our plasterers have gone bananas. They’ve covered everything in drywall and coated everything ready for sanding tomorrow morning. I feel really good,” Tom proudly told the camera.

“I said to Sarah-Jane, ‘Turn the heat on, let’s prime it, seal the plaster…'”

But as they learned later, that shouldn’t have been done until the drywall – a building material used to make the surfaces of the interior walls – had been sanded down.

We then saw a flashback to that fateful evening, with Tom telling his wife, “I don’t need to be groomed now, I can just put it up.

“It’s all getting blasted tomorrow anyway!”

“Yeah. Last night he painted drywall without sand,” host Scott Cam said in disbelief above the footage.

After waking up the next day, the couple encountered a team of traders who were quite amused by what had happened.

Sarah recalls: “The Gyprockers come in and say, ‘What have you done to the walls? You don’t prime – sealer, primer, paint – until the Gyprock has been sanded. “”

“It’s like putting your underwear on over your pants. You did it the wrong way,” one tradie said, causing both Sarah-Jane and himself to burst into laughter.

Despite their best efforts to try and get ahead of the competition, the couple were told they would have to redo the entire wall.

“I had to go hand sand with the hand machine, every bit of plaster sealer removed…” Tom said.

Chicago Murals: Little Village Mural Mystery Solved; now Aurelio Diaz is online for restoration Fri, 05 Aug 2022 18:43:00 +0000

Painted in English and Spanish as part of an aging mural near Cermak Road and California Avenue, one can read the words: “Where do good ideas come from? Are they falling from the sky? No. Are they innate in the mind? No. They come from social practice and from it alone.

The quote, fairly easy to find, is from the late Chinese leader Mao Zedong.

But there is no name or other marking to identify who painted the mural, titled “Education for the People,” from the late 1970s and filled with images including a man with a wrist in a shackle with “Chicano” written on it and the other arm tied with a rope.

Who painted it is something the artists wanted to know because they hope to restore the mural, which is faded and chipped.

“I’ve often wondered about the authorship,” says Chicago mural historian and writer Jeff Huebner. “We long thought it was Aurelio ‘Diaz’ ​​but we weren’t ‘entirely sure’.

Now living in Mexico, Diaz, also known as Aurelio Diaz Tekpankalli, confirms that he painted “Education for the People” with the help of other artists.

Artist Aurelio Diaz in 2020.

Says there’s an ongoing effort to touch up the old paint, he says he’s all for it “if they’re going to do something of this quality” from the original.

Huebner describes Diaz as “the most prolific and committed community muralist in Pilsen and Little Village in the 1970s, 80s and 90s”.

In 1978, he “painted several murals on Cermak between California and Kedzie, sponsored by an organization called Residents for a Better Marshall Square Community,” Huebner explains.

He says “a number of his exterior works remain”, although many are “in a degraded state”.

Diaz also created a mural depicting 22 faces in 1976 on 16th Street with the help of students from the nearby parish of St. Procope.

That “education for the people” has remained largely intact “really shows you the level of respect she has in the neighborhood just because of her longevity,” Huebner said.

Diaz painted the mural on the side of a brick building that houses a hardware store. It sits across an aisle from a Subway sandwich shop.

Gloria Talamantes is one of the artists who want to restore it.

“It is important to maintain this so that we can continue to educate about the history of the area as well as the rich art history that existed in Little Village,” said the South Lawndale artist.

Talamantes says Diaz’s mural conveys to him “there is power within the people.”

She says “there are things we don’t learn in school” that can be learned “from murals and visual arts“. Last year, she and Delihah Salgado created a mural next to “Education for the People” titled “Modern Warriors” to “create a dialogue for young people in our communities about online safety.”

The two children in the painting are seated back to back – symbolic, says Talamantes, of the saying “I support you”.

In June, Talamantes, Jamiah Calvin and a Mexican artist named ROCO did another mural on the other side of Diaz’s work.

This mural – titled “Joy” – was installed in June next to “Education for the People”. It was made by artists Gloria Talamantes, Jamiah Calvin and ROCO.

Talamantes says the new mural, titled “Joy,” is meant to “elevate anyone who passes by, but it’s also meant to be a representation of the neighborhood.” Cermak, in general, is a sort of dividing line between the African American community and the Latino community. We want to continue the work of solidarity between the races.

The artwork was part of the Brown Wall Project, “a city-wide public art initiative to beautify neighborhoods in the city of Chicago plagued by polished brown walls” created by city teams using brown paint to cover what they consider to be graffiti.

Rare set of Goldie paintings to go under the hammer Mon, 01 Aug 2022 10:00:00 +0000

Anyone willing to add an original Charles F Goldie painting to their collection will have a rare chance of being auctioned off this week.

But it probably won’t do much to check the back of the sofa for spare change, as the paint should fetch somewhere in the ballpark of $600,000 when it goes under the hammer on Wednesday.

The painting, Rakapa Memoriesdepicts an aged but unknown Maori wahine and is sold by the Parnell International Center for Art.

The work was painted in 1910 and is still in its original frame.

* Charles F Goldie’s artwork fetches $1.8million at Auckland auction, setting a new record
* A never-before-seen painting by Charles F Goldie fetches a record $1.7 million at auction

It has been in a private collection since 1927 when it was purchased for £262.10.

Earlier this year, another Goldie painting, Te Hau-Takiru Wharepapa, sold for a record $1.88 million.

Charles Goldie's painting is expected to fetch nearly $600,000 at auction.


Charles Goldie’s painting is expected to fetch nearly $600,000 at auction.

The director of the International Art Center, which runs the auction, Richard Thomson, said Goldie’s work was revered and few could match his artistic skills.

“He can bring out the emotion and personality of his subjects like no other artist and that is recognized by his many fans who can’t get enough of it,” Thomson said.

“Every time a work by Goldie becomes available for sale, it is extremely well received and popular.”

Goldie, who died in 1947, is considered in artistic circles to be one of the finest painters of Maori art in New Zealand.

Works by other popular and revered New Zealand artists, such as Frances Hodgkins, Rita Angus, Evelyn Page, Gottfried Lindauer, Gretchen Albrecht, Colin McCahon and Peter McIntyre will also be on sale.

Thomson said the auction would be the first open to the public since the pandemic hit two years ago.

]]> Painting black existence in history Sat, 30 Jul 2022 14:56:44 +0000

When filmmaker Christine Turner received a call from the Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA) asking her if she would accept to make a film on the painters Kehinde Wiley and Amy Sherald, she did not hesitate to say yes. She had followed the work of both artists for several years, even once going to see Sherald’s work in New York when she was nine months pregnant. And she knew the only way to present Wiley and Sherald in all their glory, she told me, was to “give them the same reverence and dignity and respect” that they give to their own. models. The final product, “Paint & Pitchfork”, explores the unfinished legacy of two black cultural icons and how, by painting themselves, their subjects and their people in the art history dossier, they attempt to rectify the social and cultural absence of, as Wiley says, in the film, “people who look like me”.

Wiley talks about his upbringing in South Central Los Angeles as a time when his artistic talent flourished and his family ties deepened, even in the face of poverty. In the documentary, photos from those years appear on screen, accompanied by the instruments that power the jazz soundtrack: drumbeats introduce the image of a young Wiley with Basquiat hair; the metal bars of a vibraphone give way to the artist as an adult photographed among a sea of ​​smiling family members, all clad in colorful clothing and hugging him. Turner introduces the lush and intricate backgrounds of Wiley’s large-scale paintings before zooming in on the finer details: his palette, his brushstrokes, the areas of canvas he meticulously colors. Wiley explains his intense attraction to seventeenth, eighteenth, and nineteenth-century masters such as Diego Velázquez and Francisco Goya, and to contemporary masters of more figurative art, including Charles White and Kerry James Marshall; partly because of this mix of influences, Wiley determined that his style was going to be very stately and very noir. “I would look at that,” he said, referring to great European portraits, “and get to it.”

The film then pivots to Sherald, who appears in head-to-toe denim, his collar popped and brushing his corkscrew curls. Her roots are in the American South, and she explains how the conservatism of Columbus, Georgia, her hometown, became the model of what not to emulate in her life and art. Horns chirp throughout a progression of Sherald’s childhood photos, and we see the striking color combinations of her art reflected in her clothing, as if that’s when she had began to develop his style. “I made a painting, where I found this young woman who lived off the beaten track. I realized that was the kind of person I was looking for,” says Sherald. “These are the people who need to be represented in art history and to be on the walls of institutions. These are the people who need to look at something and find their humanity inside of it, because sometimes it’s impossible to find it elsewhere.

The artists’ timelines converged when they received life-changing commissions from the National Portrait Gallery to immortalize the Obamas. Wiley’s work tends to frame black men with metaphorical flowers and other motifs. In her portrait of Barack Obama, Wiley added botanical depictions of the former president’s past, including flowers from Hawaii, Illinois and Kenya, which emerge from their leafy curtains to embrace the stoic model. Michelle Obama’s portrait of Sherald is typical of the artist’s color blocking style, which emphasizes the former first lady’s majesty.

Both portraits commemorate their subjects, but neither do the artists aim to do for all the other black people they depict. What unites their work is that it is a direct address to a vacuum of representation – they use their medium to say ‘yes’ to black humanity when history says ‘no’. “The question I’ve often been asked is, ‘Will you ever paint anyone but black people?’ My answer is ‘No, I won’t,'” Sherald says. “I’m here to paint my own ideal and represent it to the world, and if I can’t do that, then something is seriously wrong. .” She adds, as a final note to the film, “You should look at a history book and see again if you want to ask me that question, because the problem is that you recognize an absence of yourself, but you don’t recognize not the absence of me.”
