SARASOTA / BRADENTON, FL, UNITED STATES, April 1, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — April is renewal. Weather warms. Flowers bloom. Spring revives us all. We want to get out and look at the world. Some people are out. Some people are still extra cautious. All have been through a hellish year. It’s time to reconnect with people and with our inner selves. Barebrush artist and founder, Ilene Skeen says,
“When you enjoy art, you connect with your inner self. Your inner self connects you with the world in new and unexpected ways. Find your inner self, and you will find people, old and new.”
Today, Barebrush announces Let Yourself Look: Talking Art of the Day April 2021. Barebrush presents 30 artworks by contemporary artists in visual media and short videos. The April calendar and videos launch with a fine art photo, Eye Contact, by Peter Wong King of New Mexico. The portrait features a young woman, head in hands with a riveting gaze. Peter writes,
“Models I work with know being comfortable and at ease shows through my work… I bring out their natural honest beauty.”
April 1st, 2021 is day number 9,349 in the Barebrush calendars. In a year, when the world changed, Barebrush changed with it. Beginning in September ’20, Barebrush launched a new video series, “Talking Art of the Day.”
The “Art of the Day” Method
In each art video, Ilene follows a simple method to answer three questions: What do you see? Who’s the artist? What’s the point? To answer, Ilene creates a narrative of specific details that you, the viewer can see. Ilene uses close-ups. She adds lines, arrows, and other art tools for emphasis. Then she shares what the artist says about the work. Finally, she tries to tease out a point. She welcomes comments and disagreement. It’s all good. The 200+ videos are fast and fun, averaging under 3 minutes.
