PAUL CÉZANNE

Paul Cézanne was a French artist and Post-Impressionist painter whose work laid the foundations of the transition from the 19th-century conception of artistic endeavour to a new and radically different world of art in the 20th century. Born: January 19, 1839, Aix-en-Provence, France . Died: October 22, 1906, Aix-en-Provence, France. Spouse: Marie-Hortense Fiquet (m. 1886). Periods: Cubism, Impressionism, Post-Impressionism, Modern art.

Cézanne's often repetitive, exploratory brushstrokes are highly characteristic and clearly recognizable. He used planes of colour and small brushstrokes that build up to form complex fields. The paintings convey Cézanne's intense study of his subjects.

The Cézannes came from the town of Saint-Sauveur (Hautes-Alpes, Occitania). Paul Cézanne was born on 19 January 1839 in Aix-en-Provence.[1] On 22 February, he was baptized in the Église de la Madeleine, with his grandmother and uncle Louis as godparents,[1][2][3][4] and became a devout Catholic later in life.[5] His father (1798–1886),[6] a native of Saint-Zacharie (Var), was the co-founder of a banking firm (Banque Cézanne et Cabassol) that prospered throughout the artist's life, affording him financial security that was unavailable to most of his contemporaries and eventually resulting in a large inheritance.[7]

JACKSON POLLOCK

Paul Jackson Pollock, known professionally as Jackson Pollock, was an American painter and a major figure in the abstract expressionist movement. He was well known for his unique style of drip painting. Born: January 28, 1912, Cody, WY. Died: August 11, 1956, Springs, NY. Spouse: Lee Krasner (m. 1945–1956). Periods: Modern art, Abstract expressionism

Auerbach draws much of her inspiration from math and physics. “Engaging a variety of media, ranging from painting and photography to book design and musical performance, Auerbach explores the limits of our structures and systems of logic (linguistic, mathematical, spatial) and the points at which they break down and open up onto new visual and poetic possibilities".[5]

In her first solo exhibition, How To Spell The Alphabet, at New Image Art, Los Angeles, CA (2005), Auerbach showed a series of text-based drawings that explored various linguistic systems including calligraphy, Morse code, semaphore signals, the Ugaritic alphabet and Alexander Melville Bell's visible speech.[6] During the course of her time working as a sign painter, her focus shifted from the formal to the structural aspects of language

Auerbach's recent work focuses on rotational symmetry, gesture, architecture, and theories about higher-dimensional space. Auerbach's 2016 exhibition at Paula Cooper Gallery, "Projective Instrument," reflected on the work of early 20th century architect and theosophist Claude Bragdon, and featured glass sculptures, acrylic paintings, 3-D printed sculptures, and artists' books.[7] For the season 2016/2017 in the Vienna State Opera Auerbach designed the large-scale picture "A Flexible Fabric of Inflexible Parts III" as part of the exhibition series "Safety Curtain", conceived by museum in progress.[8]
