Drawing: The Language of Vision
Call Number: DVD 743.4 D797
Publication Date: 2006
In this instructional video, artist Burton Silverman demonstrates drawing techniques. Completing two drawings: one on toned paper with charcoal, the other on white paper with pencil, Silverman discusses his techniques and approach to drawing. He stresses the importance of both drawing and a strong visual understanding of the shapes and values that compose a picture. Describing drawing as a form of sculpting; cutting shapes and then detailing them, Silverman works from the 'outside in' starting with a gesture outline in which he finds the subtleties of high lights and shading.
Calder: Sculptor of Air
Call Number: DVD 730.92 C1271
Publication Date: 2012
Unique modern artist Alexander Calder (1898-1976) revolutionized the art of sculpture with his distinctive modernism, freeing sculpture from its stand and adding movement to the art itself. He rose to fame in the 1930s with his renowned Miniature Circus, but his modernist creativity skyrocketed with his wire sculptures, an invention he dubbed "drawing in space". Contemporary, and friends with Duchamp, Miro, and Mondrian, who have greatly influenced his evolution, this genius tinkerer, too often limited to his Mobiles, was fueled by artistic renewal, creating such unexpected shapes as his huge stabile sculptures now exhibited worldwide. In light of the artist's life, this film retraces this unique quest and explores the masterpieces that have marked the history of 20st century art.
