ARTmonday: Ode to Obama in Art

Artwork Featuring President Obama

President Barack Obama, 2004
Martin Schoeller, Camera Work, Berlin (Artsy)

This is the last Monday of Obama’s presidency.

Yesterday the Artsy newsletter promoted its recent blog post on how artists have captured President Obama’s legacy. Artists have a long history depicting political figures and their work impact public perception.

The Obama artwork Artsy features is quite well known, including photographer Lisa Jack’s black and white portraits of Obama as a college coed; Mariana Cook’s much seen photo of young Barack and Michelle Obama sitting on a sofa in their Chicago living room; and of course, Shepard Fairey.

Pulling images from sites with high end artwork as well as sites on which any artist can offer artwork, I’ve curated portraits of our beloved President Barack Obama. Here are 17 Obama artworks. President Obama, we will miss you.

ARTmonday: 14 Apple Artworks

Today is Rosh Hashanah, the first day of the Jewish New Year. One of the traditions Jews observe is to dip apples into honey to signify the sweetness of a new year. In celebration of the new year, here are 14 apple artworks.

Included are self portraits by two of my favorite Boston photographers (I don’t think either is Jewish), Japanese sculpture, a young Mick Jagger (not Jewish), and more traditional apple still lifes. Shana Tovah!

ARTmonday: Architecture in Art

Last night I pulled together 20 examples of architecture in art for today’s post. As I scrolled through Pinterest pinning hundreds of images that appeal, I realized that one of the categories that make my heart flutter most is architecture. (You can look at my Architecture I and Architecture II Pinterest boards and see if you feel similarly.)

Artwork sucks me in, street style compels me to lose weight and dress with more verve, and food photos makes me wish I had more time and energy to really cook, but the architectural images draw me in more profoundly. Sure, it’s the design aspects in part—the corrugated metal, black stained siding, expanses of glass, pointy rooftops, and placement in the surrounding landscape transport me to another place, another time, another life I could have. Or maybe, just a house I might someday build.

So just for that reason, the realization that looking at sublime examples of contemporary dwellings elicits a response deeper than browsing well-designed living rooms and adorable, furry animals, here are 20 occurrences of architecture in art, including photographs, paintings, illustration, sculpture, and collage.

ARTmonday: 10 Misty Landscapes

Misty landscape photography seems to combine the dewy feel of the heat and the starkness of the wintertime, to me anyway. I love a desolate winter landscape photo. Since I’m in a Florida for a few days, I was also drawn to a few of these other images which are tinged with a Southern feel. Here are 10 examples of misty landscape photography, from fields, to woods, to mountains, to sea.

ARTmonday: 12 Retro Style Campers

Everywhere you turn there’s a vintage retro camper, or glamping scene. Granted the two are totally different, but still, two sides of the same coin. While I could be convinced to glamp, you won’t catch me in a camper, ’50s style chic or otherwise. I am, however, charmed by some of the images. I also kinda love the idealization of the old-fashioned camping trip, in artwork mind you, not in real life, thank you very much.

A few months ago Rise Art asked me to curate a summer-themed art collection—”Summer Is Coming“—which features some camp and road trip inspired artwork. One of my favorites from that collection is this first piece, a technicolor blur of a family camp scene.

I searched for other similar images, but wound up finding illustrations mostly vintage campers, so I figured I’d just go with it.
