Painting with Light

Although not from last week's PechaKucha Night in Tokyo, we continue to celebrate creativity this week by highlighting a great presentation every day, today turning our attention to "Painting with Light" from PKN Barcelona Vol. 10. Photographer Mateusz Staniewski presents a selection of light works and a series of incredible images that were all created without any use of Photoshop. In the presentation, he shares various techniques on how to paint with light.

Light Painting in Osnabrueck

Shown at Osnabrueck's PechaKucha Night Vol. 6 earlier this year, the photos included in this post are part of some "light painting" work by Christoph Abé and Kai Bornemann. PKN Osnabrueck organizer Clemens Gruber has sent us some text in German to accompany the photos, but do note that all of them do not use any Photoshop trickery. Wenn die von den Eltern vermittelten Werte bei ihren erwachsenen Kindern manch roten Leitfaden darstellen, welcher sicher durch die Gesellschaft führt, dann darf man als Papa und als Mama gleichermaßen stolz sein. Denn diese Werte, dieser Anstand und diese Bildung sind das Ergebnis einer langen Reise, welche durch mehrere Generationen führt. Kennst du die Stille im Lärm, welche dich im Alltag umgibt und die du als unangenehm wahrnimmst, da immer um dich herum etwas passieren muß?! Genieß diese kleine Insel und nutze sie zum Durchatmen ... sie ist dein Erholungsort im Dschungel der Hektik. An was glaubst du, wenn du an das Wort „GLAUBE“ denkst? An was denkst du, wenn du an das Wort „Nachdenken“ glaubst? Glaubst du, dass du WIRKLICH die Fähigkeit der Reflexion besitzt? Oder glaubst du nicht eher doch an den Spiegel, den du dir selber vorhälst, damit du nicht weiter Nachdenken musst, wer du WIRLICH bist? Das Licht am Ende eines Tunnels ist in vielerlei Hinsicht interpretierbar: Man kann es als Neuanfang sehen, als helfende Hand, als wärmenden Sonnenschein im tristen Alltag oder einfach nur als das, was es ist: Die Helligkeit, welche uns immer wieder lächeln lässt, welche uns gerne an das erinnern lässt, wofür es sich zu Leben lohnt: die Einmaligkeit von besonderen, hellen Momenten! Unverdaute Vertrautheit gleicht einer unverbrauchten Seele: Naiv, flügelspreizend und ohne jegliche Bedenken dem Risiko begegnend, welches einem in Form von angeblich abgeklärten Menschen ins offene Messer rennen lässt.

Painting with Light

Light painting isn't a new art form by any stretch, but recently it's been revitalized and enhanced by the DIY community. In today's edition of Presentation of the Day, we see the extent to which the medium has grown.  In his presentation (from PKN Barcelona Vol. 10) Mateusz Staniewski enlightens us on the finer details of the photographic art. The techniques he goes into include light-stenciling, freezing, and painting; when combining these methods the results are both literally and figuratively luminous. There's much more to be seen than said here, so for further illumination check out the full presentation.

Poster for PKN Knoxville Vol. 9

Beth Meadows is a talented local artist who is well known for her creative abstractions of found objects, architectural spaces, and historic structures.  She volunteered her time to design the poster for Knoxville's 9th Pecha Kucha and for that we are grateful!    She choose this painting for the poster for the architectural qualities and proportion of the space - perfect for the integration of PKN into Architecture Week!  The couple [and their cats] are taking time from thier busy schedules to sit quietly and listen.  Sometimes PKN can get a little rowdy but the reason we all attend is to listen to a passionate community member share thier craft with us.  It is an inspiring evening of reflection and gratitde.   Beth Meadows graduated from the University of Tennessee with a BFA in Studio Art in 2007. She has lived and worked in Knoxville since then and currently manages The Salvage Room for the non-profit Knox Heritage, receiving and selling historic building materials. She is also the Director, as well as an artist, of 17th Street Studios, a work space for thirteen artists near downtown Knoxville.

New World Transparent Specimens

"This is not a computer-generated 3D model, nor is it a drawing or painting...This was once a living being." In today's Presentation of the Day, "New World Transparent Specimens" from PKN Tokyo Vol. 95, once fisherman/ocean researcher Iori Tomita shows off his striking work. The secret to his glowing, translucent skeletal art is a process that involves "enzymatically dissolving protein, and dying bones and cartilage" of once-living sea life.

Ecphrasis

What exactly is 'ecphrasis'? We'll give you a dollar if you can tell us without looking it up!* In today's Presentation of the Day, "Ecphrasis" from PKN Wellington Vol. 18, Marco Sonzogni, author of the book "How to Write a Painting", explains what the word 'ecphrasis' means by showing us just how difficult it is to capture the feelings of a painting in words. He performs an interesting an experiment by asking artists of all different skill levels to create a drawing or painting based on a short, poetic description of a painting.  *PechaKucha is not responsible for monetary compensation if readers define this word properly.

Systemic Painting

If you've ever wanted to see the inside of an artist's mind, this is a great way to do it. Bob Richardson shares his unique mode of painting using a grid-system, and in "Systemic Painting" from PKN Midcoast, Maine Vol. 19 explains how his art style has changed over the years. He uses a variety of mediums, including canvas, silk screen, and watercolor paper. After retirement, Bob revisited his systemic painting method and experimented with new compositions and brush widths to create effective pieces of art.
