Slovenian artist reuses and repurposes - February 2020

Brni Lavrisha will tell you that he is Slovenian on both sides so it is fitting that his work is being exhibited at the Slovenian Museum and Archives (SMA) in Cleveland Ohio.

The SMA "are the privileged inheritors of a legacy, not only of precious pieces of rich, ethnic, artistic and linguistic works, but also of a compelling story of migrating and thriving in America and in our City of Cleveland."

Brni does both sculptures and paintings using materials that he finds and repurposed from a nearby creek.

Watch this short video interview.

Here are a few of Brni's pieces on display

Eyewitness Views: Making History in Eighteenth-Century Europe

The latest exhibit at the Cleveland Museum of Art is called Eyewitness Views: Making History in Eighteenth-Century Europe. It showcases outstanding masterworks by revered artists who recorded some of the most newsworthy events and impressive spectacles of eighteenth-century Europe. It's an interesting concept. Nowadays we have many sources for our news - 24x7 cable news, Twitter, blogs, newspapers, radio, etc but in the 18th Century those were not available. So many got their "news" of an important event from a painting.

I think my favorite is The Fire at the Opera House of the Palais-Royal by Hubert Robert about 1781.

You can almost feel the heat coming off the canvas.
