A Portrait of Self…

Abstract Portrait art by Moses SternA Portrait of Self – 2013

My favorite thing to paint are portraits which capture less of the realistic shapes or forms but more of the character and personality of whomever they are meant to represent. The one above is of myself on a really stressful day.

On The Street…Fluorescent Graffiti, Williamsburg

Art and design inspiration on the streets of Brooklyn's Williamsburg, Brooklyn.One of the things I miss most about living in Williamsburg is the abundance of random and easy to find inspiration. Although quickly evolving into one of Brooklyn’s most gentrified and expensive place to live, hand printed posters, and illegal but often amazing graffiti still cover many of the neighborhoods once industrial buildings and even many of its new construction sites.

It may hardly be a secret, but on any given night, one can shop freely from the many piles of abandoned furniture and artwork that have often been carelessly tossed in front of abandoned homes and building, just waiting for someone to take them home. I have found some of my favorite pieces that way.

Although I will still visit, I am sure it wont ever feel the same…

Color Inspo…Stella Fluorescents, Hudson

A rare 1970's screen print by American artist Frank Stella for the Metropolitian Museum of Art 100th Year Anniversary While shopping for vintage furniture in Hudson, NY last week, I stumbled (more like tripped) over this magnificent 1970’s Frank Stella screen-print which he made for the 100th year anniversary celebration of the NYC, Metropolitan Museum of Art.

Since I will be celebrating my own thirtieth birthday next week, if any of you want to buy me a gift, hint hint, this would be one amazing and very well cherished gift. Until then, I will dream that Frank is making one especially for me.

Experiencing James Turrell

Dhatu art lighting installation by American artist James Turrell.Early this past summer, at the Pallazo Fortuny in Venice Italy, I finally experienced my first ever James Turrell. After learning so much about his work in school and having often used my non-experienced understanding of his work as inspiration for my own, to finally be seeing and experiencing his work made me feel particularly proud and excited.

I felt proud because I knew that it was a piece by James Turrell and that here was the work of an American artist hidden in a little corner of historic Italy. I felt excited because it was my first time experiencing his work and because I had no idea what I was about to experience when the guard politely told me it was OK to enter this otherwise nondescript dark corner doorway at the end of the small museum.

In general; his work is very calculated, detailed, experiential, and even though so rigidly framed, they really are so soft and enlightening in every way imaginable.

The installation at the Fortuny museum is titled “Red Shift”.
The image above is titled Dhātu, and is from his 2010 installation at the Gagosian gallery in NYC.

2013 = 0123

Open shutter night photography art by Moses Naftali Stern.Happy New Years everyone!

The photo above I took New Years 2011 but feel it very appropriate for the abstract mood I am feeling for this year (look closely and you will see that it is a circle of love). I also love that 2013 = 0123 and is a metaphoric play on progress, such as unexpected life changes which are meant to enhance our experiences rather than throw us off course.

12-12-12

December 12 2012 by Naftali SternIf you are obsessed with numbers, dates, astrology, or any spiritual understanding of time, then you may already have noted today, 12/12/12, or December, 12 2012 as a magical day of sorts. I simply think today is cool because never again will the calendar ever have such a unique and equal pattern like it does today.

Happy twelving!
