#Virginia-based #Artist #EricStandley brings a whole new #Meaning to the term “#CuttingEdge” with his methodical #StainedGlass #Windows created entirely from #Laser-cut #Paper. Standley stacks well over 100 sheets for many of his pieces which involve months of planning, #Drawing, and #Assembly. The artist says his #Inspiration comes from the #Geometry found in #Gothic and #Islamic #Architectural #Ornamentation which he somewhat jokingly calls - #Folk #Math.

Standley currently has #Art #Work in #FoldPaperScissors at the #MesaArtsCenter in #Arizona, and is an included artist in the upcoming book #MandalaMasterworks by #PaulHeussenstamm.

To commemorate the #Centennial of #Britain’s involvement in #WorldWar1, ceramic #Artist #PaulCummins & stage #Designer #TomPiper have #Created a poignant #Installation of #Handmade #Ceramic poppies planted in the famous dry moat around the #TowerOfLondon. Titled - #BloodSweptLandsAndSeasOfRed, it will be officially unveiled to the #UK tomorrow. #Volunteers began placing the #Poppies several weeks ago & the process will continue through the summer until a final flower is symbolically planted on November 11th #Armistice. The final #Artwork will consist of 888,246 red ceramic #Flowers, each representing a #British or Colonial #Military fatality. The installation offers a #Time for #Reflection & #Contemplation & to remember loved ones. #TowerPoppies can actually be purchased by the public & dedicated to #Family members for 25£ a poppy & the money raised will go to charities affiliated to the #ArmedForces #ItsNotTheDestinationItsTheJourney & #WeRememberYou

#EOD #Inspiration #UK…
#DontSayINeverGiveYouAnything #Creative to do

Tonight at participating #Cinema’s around the #Country there is an #Exclusive #BehindTheScenes guided tour of the new ‘#HenriMatisse: The Cut-Outs’ #Exhibition in #Glorious HD. #TheTateModern’s must-see #Matisse exhibition offers a once in a #Lifetime opportunity to savour this #Icon of 20th century #Art’s final triumph. When ill-health prevented Henri Matisse from #Painting, he began ‘carving into #Colour’ by cutting into painted #Paper. In doing so, he succeeded in creating an entirely new medium. Now 120 of these dazzling works have been collected from around the #World for this acclaimed exhibition. The eye-popping treasures on display range from snow flowers to dancers, circus scenes and Matisse’s famous snail. This #Unique cinema event offers an intimate and informative tour of the exhibition in the company of #Tate Director #NicholasSerota and broadcaster #FrancineStock. In addition to the extraordinary #Artworks, it features interviews with experts and friends of the #Artist, plus #Rare #Archive footage of Matisse at #Work.

When I was a young boy, I was obsessed with skulls & mummies & things like that - H. R. Giger (Some thing’s never change!) It’s always #Mourning somewhere… #Artist & designer #HRGiger, has sadly passed away at 74. He died in hospital on Monday after he fell down stairs at his Zurich home.
Born in 1940, Giger was best known for his ‘#Xenomorph’ alien in Scott’s #SciFi #Horror #Masterpiece for which he won a visual effects Oscar in 1980. He studied #Architecture & #Industrial #Design in Zurich & was known for his #Dark & #Strange(ly) #Beautiful #Dreamscapes. His #Surrealist paintings were usually produced in large formats & then reworked with an airbrush & generally feature scenes of #Humans & #Machines fused together #ILoveAHybrid. 
Giger described his #Style as “#Biomechanical”. One of his pieces in particular - #NecronomIV was the #Inspiration for Ridley Scott’s #Alien. In 1998, Giger opened his own museum in Gruyeres, Switzerland, which alongside his own paintings & #Sculptures, displays works from his own personal #Art collection including Salvador Dali, Dada & Ernst Fuchs.
Last year, he was inducted into the science fiction hall of fame in Seattle.

A new work by #Bristol #Street #Artist #Banksy has been removed by a nearby #Youth centre needing more than £100,000 to remain open, just hours after it was installed. The artwork, titled #MobileLovers shows a #Couple embracing while checking their #MobilePhones (Hmmm #StateOfTheNation). It was posted on Banky’s website & located on Clement Street yesterday. But within hours the #Artwork, painted on a wooden board & fixed to a doorway, had been removed. A youth worker from Broad Plains Boys Club says “There’s a massive wall Banksy could have done it on but he didn’t, so we think he did it to help us raise the #Money.” The club, which is attended by 1000 #YoungPeople every month, has been operating for 120 years & faces closure. “If we hadn’t taken it, someone would have ripped it from the wall or vandalised it. We will let people come & see it here for a while for a small donation, then get a valuation.”
Art fans from around the #City & beyond flocked to see the piece but were disappointed to find it had already been removed.

#Eye don’t know what Banksy’s intention was but it looks a lot like #Vulture #Culture dressed up as #RobinHood to me. As a #Purist - #StreetArt is for the street! #DoingItForTheKids is commendable but it wasn’t actually on their property, so if we’re getting technical…it’s not for them to take!

The #Word on the #Street…..
#Guerrilla #Artist #Banksy is believed to be behind a piece of #StreetArt depicting shadowy figures eavesdropping 3 miles from the #Government listening post #GCHQ. The #Artwork, which appeared in #Cheltenham yesterday, depicts 3 men wearing sunglasses and using listening #Devices to “#Snoop” on a #Telephone box.
Banksy has not yet claimed the work but it appears to have his hallmarks and already attracted hundreds of visitors.

A GCHQ spokesperson said: “This is the first time we have ever been asked to comment on art. Although we are not qualified critics, we are as #Intrigued as the rest of the residents of Cheltenham about the #Appearance of the #Mysterious #Art #Work. For those who are interested, our website gives a glimpse of what #Modern-day #Intelligence operatives are really like, although some may be disappointed by the lack of trench coats and dark glasses.” #ItsNotTheDestinationItsTheJourney

#GoodMorning #Inspiration…
Today is #DrawABirdDay which dates back to 1943 when a 7 year old #British girl named #DorieCooper visited her uncle who’d been wounded in the #War. He was distraught after losing his leg to a land-mine & in an attempt to distract him, she asked him to draw her a bird. He drew a picture of a #Robin &  Dorie laughed, saying he wasn’t a very gifted #Artist but she’d hang it in her room anyway. The young girl’s #Honesty & #Acceptance lifted the #Soldier’s #Spirits & every time she visited after that, he & the other wounded soldiers would have a contest to see who could #Create the best bird picture. In a matter of months, the ward’s walls were covered in bird #Drawings. Tragically, Dorie was hit by a car 3 years later & killed. At her funeral, her coffin was filled with bird pictures drawn by soldiers, nurses & doctors from her uncle’s hospital. She was remembered as the little girl who brought #Life & #Hope to a ward of suffering & since her death, people have been honoring Dorie by drawing birds on her #Birthday.

#WeAreAllGodsCreatures & anyone can participate in celebrating Dorie’s life by drawing a bird & sharing it with someone. You can also submit your drawing to the Draw A #Bird Day website, where it’ll be shared with the #World. Although it’s not a recognised holiday, it’s celebrated on April 8 as a way to find #Joy in life’s #SimplePleasures & to #Help people temporarily forget their #Sadness.
