The unexpected math behind Van Gogh’s “Starry Night” by Natalya St. Clair

Physicist Werner Heisenberg said, “When I meet God, I am going to ask him two questions: why relativity? And why turbulence? I really believe he will have an answer for the first.” As difficult as turbulence is to understand mathematically, we can use art to depict the way it looks. Natalya St. Clair illustrates how Van Gogh captured this deep mystery of movement, fluid and light in his work.

Kat O’Sullivan aka Katwise lives a colorful life! She took a plain-looking farmhouse outside Woodstock, New York and not only painted it, but decorated the place with colors and decorations.

The house was named “Calico,” but “The Rainbow House” and “House That Sweaters Built” also seem to be accepted monikers.

Painted: An Adventure in Stop Motion Body Art

Painted - An Adventure in Stop Motion Body Art 1 Painted - An Adventure in Stop Motion Body Art 2 Painted - An Adventure in Stop Motion Body Art 3

Painted is an experiment in stop motion face and body painting that plays with the idea of giving paint it’s own life and personality on a living canvas. The whole project was initially inspired by BLU’s stop motion video MUTO.

The video is imagined, painted, modelled, photographed and edited by Elvis Schmoulianoff.

Millie Brown Paints With Her Vomit

I have to say, that this completely gross me out! And yet I find it interesting. And odd. And  disgusting. And, like, trying too hard to stand out. I seriously get sick to my stomach just looking at it.

Performance artist Millie Brown uses her body in an uncomfortable way in order to create bright splashes of color on canvas – and sometimes clothes and people. She mixes colors into soy milk before regurgitating the milk onto her preferred canvas, akin to the drip-color style of Jackson Pollock.

Responses to her work have varied, ranging from laughing to crying, declarations of love, and even death threats, but Brown maintains that art is supposed to inspire powerful emotions in people.

“I have an inherent desire to push my own boundaries within my art… By creating art from the very depths of my own physical being I am able to challenge people’s perception of beauty, expressing raw elements of human nature and in turn challenging myself both physically and mentally”, Millie Brown says.

Professor Claudia Diaz Teaches Human Anatomy By Painting Students Bodies

At RMIT University in Melbourne, Australia, lecturer Claudia Diaz has implemented an unconventional project in order to inspire her anatomy students. After teaching  human anatomy for over 20 years, Diaz decided to try something new as she found the regular routine of anatomical memorization boring and uninspired. Over the past 3 years, Diaz has explored human anatomy with her students by having them paint the bodies of 10 students, revealing tendons and bones that would be visible if the person’s skin were stripped. Featured in these photographs is chiropractic student Zac O’Brien who patiently sat for around 18 hours while fellow students painted him. The finished result is what Diaz likes to call “anatomical man,” first brought to one of her classes in 2010.

”We walked him in and I still remember the looks on the kids’ faces. They were just in awe,” she said. ”I realised it shocked them, it inspired them and it motivated them.” Previously shy about taking off their clothes so classmates could study their bodies, the students began to shed their inhibitions through this painting exercise. ”I couldn’t get the kids to keep their clothes on. They were all throwing them off,” Dr Diaz said.

Portraits by KwangHo Shin

Portraits by KwangHo Shin 1 Portraits by KwangHo Shin 2 Portraits by KwangHo Shin 3 Portraits by KwangHo Shin 4 Portraits by KwangHo Shin 5 Portraits by KwangHo Shin 6

All the figures appearing in Korean artist KwangHo Shin‘s works are individuals and self-portraits.

“The spirit he wanted to inspire the figures with is that of a distorted hero’s or another character unidentifiable with eyes. Majority of specific people are the figures whom he depicts. He distorts a figure trying not to transform the mind and social environment unique to him. It is not the transformation from a person to no person, but from a specific to an ordinary person. He himself is flown into it. It is the method to include his own artistic experience and value. Though it is not clear where to use, works of arts become the criteria in grasping the reality. They reveal thinking while making the figure seen thinking. A specific person is thought while lump of dyes are loaded on a canvas. It’s inefficient to say ‘painted with a brush’. The lump moves freely all over the canvas without staying at a point. A face is treated as the spirit of common people who gaze at the world, rather than as a person. The biggest significance is put on the expression of the inner mind when facing an empty canvas. It is a way of revealing it as a thing to the world rather than representing a person. This is his second characteristics.”
