Greek ’obscene Art’ Trial Delayed

Posted on 6 Jun 2005 In: Forums

Lombi asked this question on the artcone forums: The curator is charged with publicly insulting the eastern Orthodox Church. A Greek court has adjourned until early next year the trial of an art curator charged with publicly insulting the eastern Orthodox Church.

Christos Ioakimidis could be jailed for up to five years for showing a painting combining Christian and sexual imagery. The authorities in Athens removed the work – showing an erect penis next to a Christian cross – following a complaint by a far-right party leader.

Artists and rights activists say the case threatens freedom of expression.

’Obscene’

The Athens court said it delayed the trial that was set to open on Friday because of its busy schedule, according to Reuters news agency. Mr Ioakimidis organised a major modern art exhibition in Greece as part of a series of cultural events leading up to the summer Olympics in Athens.

The case against him stems from a painting by Belgian artist Thierry de Cordier. It was taken down after party leader Georges Karatzaferis lodged a complaint with the Supreme Court.

He denounced the work as the most obscene, immoral and shameless painting he had ever seen. A BBC correspondent in Athens says other activists are angry with Mr Ioakimidis for removing the painting, saying he should not have yielded to pressure to do so.

Mr Iaokimidis is charged with insulting public decency and the Church.

painting materials???

Dyllon asked this question on the artcone forums: i love to paint, and since my school lets me use any materials i want (including oils and canvases) i can do as much as i want during the school year. however ive really been wanting to paint this summer but the cost of materials gets really expensive. any advice on how to get materials at cheaper prices?

BabyDoll asked this question on the artcone forums: I’ve seen how many people seem to resent the use of CGI in films. Whether it’s live action or animated films I’ve heard the phrase “just a lot of special effects” or “showcases special effects” or “too much CGI”. I bet these are the same people who have absolutely know practice nor knowledge in creating CG art. I myself have been doing computer animation for years and I still haven’t matched the quality of work done by professionals in the film industry. I’ve always found it easier to go out with my camera and film real places and people rather than create everything in the computer from scratch and make it just as good. People just don’t seem to realise how difficult it is to make good CG nor the skill required. They seem to think it’s all easy. If it were easy then why would so much of the CGI in many films end up looking fake like they do? I just find it a shame that people simply reject the use of CGI in films and don’t appreciate the talent and hard work that goes into it.

Record Bid For Del Santo Drawing

Posted on 8 Jul 2005 In: Forums

Stasha asked this question on the artcone forums: A drawing by Italian Renaissance master Andrea del Sarto has sold at auction for £6.5m, a record for the artist.

Andrea del Sarto is considered to be one of the greatest artists of the Florentine Renaissance period.

The drawing is a study for the head of Saint Joseph for an altarpiece now in Florence’s Pitti Palace.

Its auction price makes it the world’s third most expensive Old Master drawing, behind Michelangelo and Da Vinci drawings.

Scholars were only alerted to the existence of the Head of Saint Joseph drawing from a 1920s photograph.

But its whereabouts remained a mystery until it reappeared in a private Swiss collection.

Del Sarto, who died in 1530, trained in the workshop of Piero di Cosimo before becoming an independent artist, receiving commissions from religious orders and entering the court of France’s King Francois I.
