Video Art

Video Art combines technology with the visual arts, blending text, technology, music, and images together. In its most literal sense, Video Art is art that appears on video. However, the term can also mean any art that uses video and television equipment in its presentation, as well as art that is generated by means of video. Korean artist Nam June Paik is an artist strongly associated with Video Art. In 1965, after settling in New York, the artist bought a recorder, and, using the state-of-the-art technology, created and showed his first work on the same day. Later, Paik collaborated with cellist Charlotte Moorman in a performance where she wore only a bra made of two screens while playing. Paik is considered more of an experimental performer, while Bill Viola uses video to create works of ethereal images concerned with memory. Viola installs his often 12 hour-long videos, influencing Installation Art with his introduction of movement and time. As technology evolves, so do the ways in which video art can be realized.

I love Bob Ross paints, brushes, and cleaners. Watch him on PBS and YouTube. Have NEVER been disappointed in the wet on wet technique and I was NOT used to it but now I LOVE IT. Kudos

I love this tool! I've been painting pastel pet portraits for over 30 years, and this works great to secure the artwork in the frame with non-glare glass. It works quickly and can be removed easily if you want to change a frame.

Mixing White--I do not recommend it, as the colors don't blend well. Titanium White is still my favorite for mixing. It's true that the colors don't change with the Mixing White, but I find it impossible to use. Titanium White blends so beautifully. I haven't used the other colors of this brand, but I don't care for the Mixing White.
