THE ART BOOK CAMPAIGN

1 12 2015

THERE IS NO TIME LIKE THE PRESENT TIME….

Dear readers, it has been a while before I posted   here – but there is a reason for it. I have been working on a Book, which  contain full color photographs of my sculptures and my large-scale paintings and will include some personal observations  related to their development.  As you already know, this is my first book and most likely the last. This is why I would love to share thus with you in the hope that you will be very supportive.

For the very first time, The Art Chronicle is launching a campaign to fund the publication of an art book. “TSVETANA: Passion for Motion”. This book is about the Art of Tsvetana – a sculptor, painted, designer, who lives and works in California. Because you are either personally familiar with The Art TSVETANA - Passion for MotionChronicle or with the work of the Artist,  you are invited to become a part of his campaign. Supporting the Arts is something that has long-term benefits, as substantial as they are also intangible. The personally signed luxury edition book, that you will receive when you decide to support the publication is just a small reward for your love of Art. We have been waiting for years until the book is finally finished.

This is a unique opportunity , because  once you decide to own n artwork during this exclusive offer – this artwork gains in value almost instantly, because its official  listed retail prices are about 40% higher…. We have  generous FREE GIFTS if you order Art.  You will receive a FREE BOOK! If you order the book  – you will receive a another  FREE GIFT.  Transparency of the process  will be in our weekly updates here, on The Art Chronicle blog. The goal is to raise about $12,000.00 in order to publish the limited edition book, which is intended to be a collectible publication. This campaign will last  only 60 days.
THREE Sample PAGES -MAY I CONTRIBUTE?  HOW?  Please review the Campaign Brochure first and preview the Art Book on the link in this email. When you decide to support this publication  you will own a beautiful luxury copy of a hardcover, 120 pages, 11″x10″ in size, full color Art Book, registered with the Library of Congress and  hand signed by the Artist.  This publication  presents the art of Tsvetana’s sculptures and paintings for the most recent 15 years, introduced by the beautiful professional photography  of Kelsie McNeal and the Artist herself. Or you may become a proud owner of a hand finished Giclee of an original painting, or a bronze sculpture to grace your desk. If this is your preference – we have  various options you could choose from.  We are very grateful of your intentions, that we have prepared beautiful and equally generous free Gifts with your order.

Saying Thank You is just the beginning! We expect your questions – email us!  We will happily reply every question – the email is :publisher@theartchronicle.com

Thank You!  Thank you for your support!See you at the Book signing in April 2016!

ART ON BERGAMONT

26 10 2015

BERGAMONT STATION OPENING NIGHT

On October 24th 2015, the Bergamont Station  gallery row is buzzing with life!… It was packed! Parking was full! There were so many events simultaneously that it was barely possible to visit them all,

Craig Krull Gallery, Ned Evans Oct 24, 2015

I was very enthusiastic to see what is in show – some of the invitations were  informative I was actually looking to an Art Talk at Samuel Freeman Gallery , just to find out that they have moved and I simply have forgotten… Ugh.

But there were many new galleries in the place of the ones that have moved elsewhere . Attending the openings was very exciting for me! Especially this Saturday , the Gallery Row seemed to be brimming with life! I went with a friend of mine, who is a couture designer –  and we did a series of gallery  openings. Some – in and out – others kept me in to savor the Artists work. Some of them shows  were great – others outstanding…
One thing   didn’t make me happy – the SANTA MONICA MUSEUM OF ART has closed its doors….. This was a sad moment – but I am sure it will be resolved in matter of  months. I have been there a few times – and ever since it opened – it looked more like a gallery. Perhaps because my idea of an Art Museum as institutions like MOCA or LACMA or TATE …. Anyway – regardless of what I thought – it was a great start for a future institution. Arts have in disfavor f lately by lawmakers and budgetmakers , cutting art programs from schools –  so any organization that enhances public ‘s interest in  Art  is good. Santa Monica Museum of Art , despite its small size was a plus…It remains to be seen what the fate of this art establishment will be.

CHARISSA BARGER Harp at Laura KORMAN Gallery

The truth is– most of the shows were good, some of the shows were even fantastic ! ANDREW WEISS GALLERY, located in the place of the James Gray gallery had a great opening of small works on paper by Larry Bell and Ed Moses among others. It had the feel of a San Francisco gallery… GREG KRULL GALLERY had works by Ned Evans, RUTH BACHOFNER Gallery was showing Virginia Katz and Audra Weasner, LOIS LAMBERT had Kinetic Art and LAURA KORMAN has Katherine Tsu Lynn Mann. All galleries were curated and staged to perfection this season. .Some of them displaying quite a classy presentation with a performance by classical harpist( Charissa Barger at Laura Korman) . The effort extended past the Art and contributed to an air of a celebrartory feel. Hopefully this will reflect in the sales. Bergamont Station is making a come back!!Public’s interest in Art is making a come back! This is the best news as of lately. Yes! Finally! Thank you LA!

Your truly,

TY

SCULPTING AN ICONIC FIGURE

26 07 2015

ALI MCGRAW

Once in a while – I will post about my own work.  . A lot of art  events have happened  for the past few months and  have hoped that you have relied upon the rest of the media for these updates. This is my latest work. Much to write – I don’t Tsvetana Yvanova - ICON 1--Bronze -18.5 x7.5 x11intend. Just about the completion of this 18.5″ tall life-size portrait of a young Ali McGraw ( Love Story) . She was a 70’s icon and all who were teens at that time will certainly rememberAli Film Picture her iconic  features. The dark eyes, deep and passionate and intelligent. A kind of rare  innocence , that stems out of strength. Something we all identified with… This entire
complexity of her character are written on her face.  Cast in bronze, finished in hot patina and sealed in wax, this portrait is 18.5 inches tall and stands on a black marble  pedestal.

I have aimed to portray this memorable face. And retain the curiosity and innocence of young Ali. And I believe the gal has been achieved.

Yours truly,
TY SUNSHINE

BOGDAN ALEXANDROV – A Modern Bulgarian Master

28 06 2013

Dear Friends, it has been a while… forgive my inconsistency! While the desire to write about artistic events and work that interest me is as usual boundless – time seems to be the only limitation. However – for those of you who enjoy these writings, that come from the heart of my love for Art , I am restarting my writing with this post– about a Bulgarian artist, whose work has crossed boundaries. I have always wanted to devote special posts to my Facebook ‘discoveries’. Some of these Artists  are unbelievable.1  Susanne Kessler ( a sophisticated installation Artist from Germany ), Philip Geist, Ross Ashton ( brilliant Multimedia artists from Germany and Great Britain ) ,  Cliff Garten ( a California Public Artist with incredible visions) to name a few.  These artists have something in common – they are absolutely brilliant! And inspirational!

     SUSPENDED (E)MOTION

As I promised in the beginning – I only show you artists who have in some way astounded me and inspired me. That is a promise I will keep! So before I resort to presenting each an every one of them in time, allow me to present you a very talented and masterful BOGDAN ALEXANDROV, whose latest work, that was exhibited in Yuzina Gallery(2013) –  I also encountered on Facebook.  The genuineness of his vision is undisputed. His latest exhibition in Sofia  has created quite a sensation. It id here – on the West coast by means of digital  media. The large canvases  by Bogdan Alexandrov convey a certain mood, that seems to captivate the viewer and leave a lasting impression. AndBOGDAn ART (3) makes us think. Makes us relate to the people in the images. ” What are they thinking? What are they talking about…? “After these questions fade away , we discover that it does not really matter. What matters is – that these paintings have captured a moment in time – that will never happen again. The eternal ‘now” as the Zen philosophy points it. The only moment that actually exists.

Regarding his method, in Mr.Alexandrov’s own words: ” Nowadays , people document life with greater ease than ever.” Says the Artist. ” Equipped with new technology, reporters, filmmakers and artists are “capturing” images constantly. The digital medium transmits images in a format, where the image is reduced to a time code and is modified by the imperfections of he optical systems being used.” These imperfections have been superimposed and intelligently used as the foundation of his method, that is difficult to define – by creating the illusion of the movement, without the still  frames…

BOGDAn ART (4)The Artist: “In my works I depict the characters by synthesizing multimedia images in a series of transitional transparencies. Their hands, faces, gestures and movements are in a state in which the conventional two-dimensions representational painting is replaced by the dynamic of the movement.”

The Artist Bogdan Alexandrov lives and works in Bulgaria, his website and his blog  are: http://bogdanaleksandrov.blogspot.com/

Enjoy !

Your Truly.

Francoise Nielly

25 01 2010

A formidable talent!

During the  15th annual LAART Show, there was one Artist that struck me with her work – Francoise Nielly. I approached to the booth of Villa Del Arte Gallery, Barcellona – and I simply gasped! The power of the stroke and color – the overall images were mesmerizing! She is from France, and is also a Graphic Artist,  a Photographer, an Illustrator, and Animator. She gets her sense of proportion and   her father, who was an Architect.  Growing in the South of France,  she was never too far from the light – hence the vibrant and radiant color palette in her work.  Francois Nielly’s work  is expressive – exhibiting brute force. Oils and knife  combine to sculpt her images. Her work is a pure force of nature.  __________________READ ON
