Making Art In The Internet Age (4)
Huffington Post - 4 months
Works in the exhibition #INSTALARITY by Alonsa Guevara, Marc Trujillo, and Justin Tecson. If you've been following my last three Huffington Post blogs, you know that I've been teaching a class related to the production and dissemination of artworks online, especially on Facebook and Instagram. Or I should say that the undergrads in my class are teaching me. Their generation grew up in a tight relationship with computer technology and have experienced an alternate existence through the glowing 'screen' that I can only vaguely fathom. There is much skepticism amongst older generations of artists as to whether the presentation of one's works online brings anything worthwhile to an art career, and a special disdain is reserved for the idea that art can be sold through Instagram. One hears rumors of success, but looking at the low price points of art offered through Instagram one wonders how these young artists ever pull in enough cash to pay the rent. The low prices probably reflect ...

Portrait of Layla 20 x 16 in. Oil on LInen 2014. From her current exhibition I Notice People Disappear at ArtHouse429 in Florida Feb 6 - March 6. http://ow.ly/tfU1K When I look at an ancient object, whether a piece of lace or an ivory cane, and I wonder about who had it before and how the person used it and how they felt about it when they did. There’s a beauty to that act of guessing that I wanted to harness it and impart that sensation to the viewer.

Let's Take the Phone Stacking Game One Step Further: Ban the Meal Shot
Huffington Post - over 3 years
I wrote about the 10 rules I would make for all parents if I were queen in the past. Now, my subjects, if I were queen, I'd ban the practice of taking pictures of our newly-arrived meals, too. Firstly, I applaud the recent phone stacking game where diners stack their phones in the center of the table and whoever touches theirs first pays the bill. It brings to mind another pastime that I would like to see storm the nation called the "Don't take a picture of your meal" game. Don't get me wrong, I love food. I love cooking. I love nothing more than the beauty of a well-plated meal. I love ogling pictures in cookbooks and I even love posting pictures on Instagram. But believe me when I tell you that no matter how hungry or excited you are about what you're about to post on Instagram and Facebook, it NEVER looks as good to anyone else as it does to you. Unless you're an on-call doctor or food professional, pulling out your cell phone during a meal with family, co-workers, friends and es ...

"Janie Bryant" 24 x 32 in. Oil on Linen. I was sitting at a lecture at LACMA about the textiles of Elsa Schiaparellit and Coco chanel and how they influenced the paintings of Matisse . I was surrounded by the most beautifully dressed, highly curated women of the costume council. I am fascinated by textures and colors as a language within painting. I wondered, while sitting there, what it would be like to get the most highly articulate people in the language of fashion -- the stylists,the creative directors, the costume designers-- to style themselves and sit for their portrait. This is Janie Bryant, the costume designer for MadMen. She wore white gloves, and I painted in a cigarette for good measure. http://www.kimberlybrooks.com

"Technicolor Summer" 44 x 36 in. Oil on Linen. That summer, my father was dying. His white blood cells were so low that we couldn't fly anywhere. The family took four vacations all around California, to anywhere we could drive. There were a lot of swimming pools, oceans and mountains. Every moment was more vivid because it could be the last one. The last great meal. The last great sunset. It was a summer in high definition. A summer in technicolor. http://www.kimberlybrooks.com

Kimberly Brooks: Introducing the ImageBlog
The Huffington Post - almost 4 years
I'm thrilled today to unveil and launch the ImageBlog, a communal platform for artists from all over the world to share and engage. Featured artists submit images of their work -- in whole, in detail, or in progress -- with a caption of any length, but unlike a blog, the image is paramount. It will include known artists we revere and admire and also those emerging on the scene, all of whom are contributing to the larger conversation of art in their respective media. Like other HuffPost bloggers, artists are invited. Invitees in turn recommend other artists, so our reach expands outward into a fractal -- self curating and always growing. David LaChapelle, ImageBlog Contributor When I started the arts section on The Huffington Post almost three years ago, I always envisioned that it would evolve into a space where people would blog about and share their work. What became apparent over time, however, is that bloggers are more often "Word People" rather than "Image Peo ...

Anya Strzemien: The Zen Of Letting A Hairstylist Do Whatever The Heck She Wants (PHOTOS)
Huffington Post - almost 4 years
Hair is arguably the most important aspect of our appearance, which is how I justify spending a non-Supercuts amount of money cutting it. We wear it day after day--right there on our heads--so if you net it out, the daily rate is probably equivalent to the price of your Starbucks. But while I'm willing to pay for top stylists, I'm not willing to hand over control. I've micromanaged so many haircuts that I recently paid for two haircuts at two different salons in the same weekend because I wasn't happy with the first one. I've brought photos (which is generally an advisable practice), asked for a-layer-here-but-not-here, pointed to cowlicks, done the ponytail check in the middle of the session...basically I've done everything short of grabbing the scissors out of the stylist's hands and just doing it myself. Here's the other thing: I'm not a hairstylist. I'm an editor at the Huffington Post. Pretty much none of my friends are hairstylists. They are teachers, writers, entr ...

PHOTOS: See The Female Form Like You've Never Seen It Before
Huffington Post - about 4 years
Who knows how to portray the female form better than a renowned group of female artists? For the next three weeks, SoMa's new Mirus Gallery will attempt to answer that question with its third exhibit, "The Looking Glass: Refracton Through the Female Gaze." The group show, featuring works by Sandra Chevrier, Naja Conrad-Hansen, Mercedes Helnwein, Alexandra Levasseur, Kimberly Brooks and more, showcases women's bodies through a variety of unexpected mediums. But don't expect a bundle of dainty flowers. "The artists featured in the The Looking Glass challenge the preconceived notion that the female form in art represents a sense of delicacy and untouchable beauty," a statement announcing the exhibit explains. "Creating a new discourse and exploring the woman's role in artistic context, The Looking Glass is a celebration of the female form that ultimately transcends objectification." Take a look at some of the pieces featured below, and be sure to stop by Mirus Gallery ...

Kimberly Brooks: Mom's 10 Commandments About Technology
Huffington Post - over 4 years
If I were Queen, I would make everyone repeat after me: "Technology is addictive and allowing children to attempt to regulate themselves is akin to helping them regulate their use of cocaine or alcohol." I started to have the desire to be Queen when smartphones invaded my children's elementary school. The first time I noticed it was when a third grader with divorced parents was discovered to be showing video porn to classmates and a few second graders during recess. When some horrified mothers found out and alerted the boy's mother, a nurse, she put the iPhone on the kitchen counter and smashed it with a hammer. In fifth grade, another boy took a picture of some girls doing cartwheels that showed their underwear and then regularly threatened to post it on his Facebook page. It was weeks until the girls' mothers, seeing their children visibly upset and suddenly not wanting to go to school anymore, got to the bottom of what was bothering them and had to get the principa ...

Jessica Robin Trent: 2012: Don Giovanni, Almost A Space Odyssey (PHOTOS)
The Huffington Post - over 4 years
In its 93rd season, and with the effectual energy of young conductor Gustavo Dudamel on a multi-year contract, the LA Philharmonic is certainly redefining the orchestral experience. Their unique production of Mozart's Don Giovanni in collaboration with director Christopher Alden, Disney Hall architect Frank Gehry, and award-winning fashion designers Rodarte, re-imagined this classic opera in a very modern, abstract, provocative and decidedly Los Angeles way. I was fortunate enough to be a guest of Sutton Stracke's in her absence, and was in the delightful company of wonderful women including: Kimberly Brooks, artist and founder of the Huffington Post Art Section; and Dr. Charlotte Eyerman, American Director of FRAME (French American Museum Exchange) and independent curator. Part of the ensemble on stage, Act II. Composed in 1787 by Mozart, with the libretto written the same year by Lorenzo da Ponte, Don Giovanni is certainly a timeless tale. Don Giovanni is descr ...

Priscilla Frank: Public Theater Forum Asks If New York Is Still A Home For Artists
Huffington Post - almost 5 years
Hoards of young people flock to New York every day with dreams of bohemian glory, where fledgling artists spend late nights drinking, exchanging ideas, making love, making mistakes and even making good art along the way. The city is thick with the ghosts of artistic and literary giants of days past ... but is New York still the legendary culture capital it once was? Last night I attended a public forum at the Public Theater, and saw critics and artists discuss creative gains and losses in New York. The conversation was spurred by the upcoming release of the musical "The February House," which revives the intellectual bohemian Brooklyn abode of poet W.H. Auden, novelist Carson McCullers, composer Benjamin Britten and burlesque entertainer Gypsy Rose Lee. The question on the table was: do these accidental pockets of creative genius still happen today, just as they did in the 1940s?

Two Initiatives Hope to Make New Jersey More Heart-Healthy
East Brunswick Patch - almost 5 years
About one-in-four deaths in New Jersey are due to heart disease, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. That helps explain why the quest for cardiac health is the focus of two initiatives underway in New Jersey.     The New Jersey Hospital Association has launched its first website for the general public, and it is devoted to heart failure. And four New Jersey research sites are among 75 nationwide participating in clinical trials of a new medical device designed to instantly alert individuals if they are having a heart attack. The warning device, the AngelMed Guardian, was developed by Angel Medical Systems of Shrewsbury, which expects to enroll more than 1,000 patients throughout the country in a clinical trial expected to continue for at least another year. So far 15 New Jersey patients have enrolled, with more coming on board weekly. Participating in the study are St. Michael’s Medical Center, Jersey Shore University Medical Center, Lourdes Cardiology, a ...
