Watch Robin Antar On Caught In The Act - Art In Brooklyn

On Wednesday July 28, Brooklyn’s very own modern sculpture extraordinaire, Robin Antar, will be featured on an episode of Caught In The Act: Art In Brooklyn. Ms. Antar, who has had incredible success with her stone sculptures and other contemporary sculptures which represent key items in American culture, will be featuring some of her latest artwork on the program. If you are a supporter of Ms. Antar’s works, you certainly want to catch this show, as she will get to explain things that can give the audience a further look into her artwork and herself as an artist.
If you already have an appreciation for Ms. Antar’s artwork, seeing her in action will give you a whole new level of appreciation for her. Not only are you going to see the artwork that she produces, but you are going to see the source out of which her artwork is produced. This new layer of knowledge, which many people are not exposed to, can actually change the perception of her artwork in a very positive way.
With that being said, be sure to check out Caught In The Act: Art In Brooklyn on Wednesday night, July 28, at 10 P.M. The show will be on Time Warner Channel 56, Cablevision Channel 69, and in all five boroughs, on Verizon Channel 44. Also, if you prefer, you can watch the show streamed live here, and launch Channel Three.

Octavioamado - designer
Born in Argentina, the designer Octavio Amado is known worldwide for his creations and installations of a stongly suggestive character. A painter and a sculptor in origin, Octavio Amado sees light as a primary source of confort, pleasure and a causer of sensations. Aware to new technologies, he creates objects of double function: useful but also a work of art with a contemporary, industrial and nomad constitution. Octavio thinks that the relation between the object and its user is a fundamental element, so modularity is a constant theme in his creations. Nowadays, he designs collections for his own label and increasingly for other companies. He also develops installations all around the world in close collaboration with architects for the hotel industry, luxury items and public buildings.

Daily life wall clock

BGM project

Daily life wall clock
This wall clock doesn't indicate time by numbers and hands. Instead, the figures of a grandmother, grandchild and dog represent hours, minutes and seconds. Silhouettes of nature and daily life are arranged around the clock, and each figure moves through these scenes to represent the time.

The Daily Life Clock from BGM project doesn't indicate time by hands or numbers. Instead, the clock represents time by figures like a grandmother, a grandchild, and a dog. The grandmother represents hours, the grandchild minutes and the dog is used for seconds. Each figure rotates around a globe and passes through various scenes. The scenes are repeated continuously without much variation. For example, one scene has each figure passing through a forest of trees. The clock is an attempt to embody parts of daily life in the form of nature and people. The clock is a wall-mounted parable that reminds people of the monotony of everyday life. The clock is also a reminder of mortality by using figures such as a the grandchild and grandmother. Some people might find the clock depressing, however there are numerous fans of the clock that love the concept. The design of the clock is clearly engaging and it provides a unique way to tell time.

Some of his products have received international design awards like "the best excellence product award" in 100% Design Tokyo and "Special mention" (2nd prized) in LIGHTOUCH by Singapol design association sponsored by FLOS. He is interested in the synergy of objects and communication between objects and human. According to him, an object can have an influence on another object; then the other object can disappeared or developped with the original object. This interaction can lead to the creation of a new entirely different object. Dongjin Byeon has been designing objects that can be enhanced by their mutual existence.

Art League of LI News: "Exhibiting through August 15

The Landscapes and Interiors of William Starkweather

As a perfect summer exhibit, from July 11 to August 15 the Art League of Long Island is pleased to present the landscapes and interiors of William Starkweather (1879 - 1969),
early 20th century American painter, from the collection of Peter Falotico of Northport.
Full of vitality, the thirty-five watercolors and oils on view, painted largely during Starkweather's summer travels to remote locales in Maine and the maritime provinces
of Canada provide a visual diary of his life and show us a thoughtful artist who rejected
the prevalent style of his day to create works that are surprisingly modern to our eyes.
