Ikea- Painting Of Woman And Man Looking For Art In Ikea Store

painting of a woman and man looking for 'art' in Ikea store

acrylic on masonite
36 1/2" x 27 2/3" or 93,3 x 70 cm
2007

In an Ikea store painting of I saw a woman and a man looking for so-called paintings.

Of course the art they're looking at isn't real art, these are just prints on canvas not even limited in edition. Thousands of the same image are in circulation and many have them in their homes. I thought it would be interesting to paint those images as a way to elevate them to real art.

With Ikea I want to raise questions about consumerism and of course just make an image that's beautiful to look at too.

If you're interested in purchasing this painting just send me an email to info@gerardboersma.nl stating the title for more information and price.

Summer has begun and this painting by Tamara de Lempicka is just perfect for the season!

Tamara de Lempicka was a Polish painter active in the 1920s and 1930s, who spent her working life in France and the United States. She is best known for her polished Art Deco portraits of aristocrats and the wealthy, and for her highly stylized paintings of nudes.

Her style was a blend of late, refined cubism and the neoclassical style. Lempicka placed high value on working to produce her own fortune, famously saying, 'There are no miracles, there is only what you make.'

Last week I looked at my painting American Flag of a woman enjoying a painting of a flag by Jasper Johns. My eye then felt on a small study which showed a man in a pink shirt.

I put two and two together and came up with this idea of a man wearing a pink shirt enjoying a rainbow flag in a museum.

The Climax is an 1893 illustration by Aubrey Beardsley (1872–1898), a leading artist of the Decadent and Aesthetic movements.

It depicts a scene from Oscar Wilde's play Salome, in which the femme fatale Salome has just kissed the severed head of John the Baptist, which she grasps in her hands.

Elements of eroticism, symbolism, and Orientalism are present in the piece. This illustration is one of sixteen Wilde commissioned Beardsley to create for the publication of the play. The series is considered to be Beardsley's most celebrated work.

In the weeks that followed the assassination of President John F. Kennedy in Dallas on November 22, 1963, Warhol began to collect pictures of the widowed First Lady that flooded the popular press. The close-cropped image here reproduces a moment shortly after shots were fired. My figure is contemplating this powerful portrait.

Alphonse Mucha was a Czech painter and decorative artist best known for his distinct Art Nouveau style, an art movement that was most popular between 1890 and 1910. Mucha produced many paintings, illustrations, advertisements, postcards, and designs.

Art Nouveau means New Art and was a reaction to the academic art of the 19th century. It was inspired by Celtic art and natural forms and structures, particularly the curved lines of plants and flowers The painting my figure is enjoying is a clear example.
