    Mark Bangerter: Finding His Vision after Tragedy By Mary Dickson, Salt Lake City, Utah In a case of mistaken identity, a stranger, consumed by an irrational hatred, found his target on an April evening in 1998 in a Boise, Idaho club. Mark Bangerter – an artist on his way to becoming one of America’s finest modern painters -- hugged a friend goodbye as he left the Boise club. It was a simple gesture of friendship that enraged the stranger. A decade after the attack and a series of reconstructive surgeries, Bangerter is finding his artistic voice again with a series...

    A mountain lion prowling around for easy meals has been scaring a...family ever since it killed one of the family's cats two weeks ago. About 2:30 a.m. ...Carrie Ann Warner heard noises outside that she assumed came from raccoons ... As the house had no windows on that side, she opened the door a little, a piece of firewood in one hand. One of her cats scooted out the door, right into the clutches of a mountain lion not 2 feet from her. Warner threw the firewood and hit the animal in the head as it carried off her cat....

    SYDNEY: Changing colours of palette entails endless showers for an Australian artist - because she prefers to paint with her breasts. But Di Peel, a mother of two, is producing what the market wants. Unlike recent winners of prestigious Turner Prize for modern art, Peel's works can do what paintings traditionally are supposed to do and brighten up a bare wall. Her first canvas sold for $10, her second for $26 and currently she's busy with an order for 10 at a princely $89 each. Peel, from Tasmania, freely admits that her chosen method doesn't allow much detail. "They are...

    Futurism ^ | FR Post 4-1-2004 | Umberto Boccioni, Carlo Carrà, Luigi Russolo, Giacomo Balla, Gino Severini
    Futurism was an international art movement founded in Italy in 1909. It was (and is) a refreshing contrast to the weepy sentimentalism of Romanticism. The Futurists loved speed, noise, machines, pollution, and cities; they embraced the exciting new world that was then upon them rather than hypocritically enjoying the modern world?s comforts while loudly denouncing the forces that made them possible. Fearing and attacking technology has become almost second nature to many people today; the Futurist manifestos show us an alternative philosophy. Too bad they were all Fascists. TO THE YOUNG ARTISTS OF ITALY! The cry of rebellion which...

    Reign of modernism will end in 21st century, critics contend rt in the 21st century will draw its inspiration from traditions that were largely neglected during modernism's 20th-century heyday, say artists, critics and collectors who advocate a return of classical ideals. "I look at modern art as very much like what happened with communism - it was an idea that was a house of cards and couldn't work," says Allan Banks, president of the American Society of Classical Realism and vice chairman of the American Society of Portrait Artists. "A lot of the rubbish that we've been handed (in the...
