. Internationally acclaimed artist #ShirinNeshat takes on loaded themes in photography, film, and video works that delve into issues of gender, identity, and politics in Muslim countries, and the relationship between the personal and political. Neshat’s earliest works were photographs, such as the Unveiling (1993) and Women of Allah (1993–97) series, which explore notions of femininity in relation to Islamic fundamentalism and militancy in her home country. Her subsequent video works departed dramatically from overtly political content or critique, in favor of more poetic imagery and narratives. While her works hint at the restrictive nature of Islamic laws regarding women, they deliberately open onto multiple readings, reaching instead toward universal conditions. 🔻guggenheim.org🔺️ . . @shirin__neshat ➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖

. #ScandinavianInterior Carl Larsson is generally credited with creating Scandinavian style. It combines the neutral colors of the Swedish, Norwegian, and Danish landscape with a casual aged appearance. The long winters and lack of natural light in Scandinavia created a need for sleek and airy interiors that made the most of the available sunlight. ➖Colors➖ The Scandinavian color palette relies on basic colors: whites, from ecru to bright white, beiges, natural light wood tones, and light blues. The exception to the neutral color scheme is the frequent addition of bright red. ➖Textures and Fabrics➖ Fabrics, too, follow the natural theme. Cotton and linen are the most commonly found fabrics in Scandinavian style interior design. ➖Furniture➖ Typical Scandinavian style furniture is a mixture of straight lines with gently curved detailing. Legs are generally thin and tapered. Benches and bench-like sofas are a staple of Scandinavian style interior design. ➖Architectural Details➖ Architectural details commonly found in Scandinavian style interior design include leaded glass windows, high ceilings, hardwood floors, and wall moldings. Lighting is added with iron chandeliers and scones as well as simple table lamps. 🔺interiordesign.lovetoknow.com🔻 ➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖

. 🔻 Rosetta II, 2005 - 2006 ⚫ Red Stare Head IV, 2006 - 2011 🔺️One out of two (symposium), 2016 ➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖ #JennySaville is a contemporary British painter whose stylized nude portraits of voluminous female bodies have brought her international acclaim. Among her best-known works, is the large-scale self-portrait Branded (1992), in which the artist distorts her own torso and breasts through painting, making both body parts pendulous and imposing. Saville’s luscious yet grotesque treatment of painted bodies have elicited comparisons to #LucianFreud. “I paint flesh because I’m human,” she has said. “If you work in oil, as I do, it comes naturally. Flesh is just the most beautiful thing to paint.” 🔺️artnet.com🔻 . @jenny_saville_art ➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖

. 🔻 Lost Horizon I 🔺️ 2008 ➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖ #AntonyGormley is widely acclaimed for his sculptures, installations and public artworks that investigate the relationship of the human body to space. His work has developed the potential opened up by sculpture since the 1960s through a critical engagement with both his own body and those of others in a way that confronts fundamental questions of where human beings stand in relation to nature and the cosmos. Gormley continually tries to identify the space of art as a place of becoming in which new behaviours, thoughts and feelings can arise. 🔺️antonygormley.com🔻 ➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖

. #LornaSimpson is an American artist, born in 1960, who lives and works in New York. She uses photography, video and collage to explore identity – which means what makes us who we are – using her own experiences as a black woman to inspire her work. She is most well known for her powerful artworks that combine photographs with words. In these works she questions and challenges narrow and conventional ideas about women, culture and race. Lorna Simpson was one of a group of artists who became well known in the 1980s for exploring themes and ideas relating to identity politics in their work. Identity politics focuses on the lives and experience of those who are often marginalised in society such as black people, women and gay people. (Marginalised means pushed to the side, forgotten about, or not treated as important). Identity politics aims to make others aware of the issues and unfairness that these marginalised people have to face. 🔺️tate.org.uk🔻 . . @lornasimpson ➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖
