Dear photo-and-other-art friend!

Welcome to shoot # 57
The photo above is a digital gift – a moment of joy or reflection – to you from Oberg PhotoGraphics.

A special welcome to many new subscribers and social media and other friends – here is the preceding shoot. 

shoot aims to stimulate art curiosity and share positive stuff. It’s a gateway to the online “flip” GlobalArt Magazine, the blog I write as an art recommender, not an art critic.

Edvard Munch and Jasper Johns
Want to alert you to the fascinating “Jasper Johns and Edvard Munch: Love, Loss, and the Cycle of Life” exhibition (incl video) to open in a few days at the Virginia Museum of Fine Art (VMFA): 130 works by Munch and Johns and how they connect and how Munch may have inspired Johns. Curated by John B. Ravenal.

There is a new blog post here on the Munch-Johns connection with reference to two works in which I connected them in 2011, one of which is shown on the top.

Little did I know that five years later Continue reading

Dear friend

Welcome to shoot # 48

The above photo, “Palazzo Curtain” is a digital gift from Oberg Photographics to you – a moment of contemplation or beauty with which I wish you a good weekend.

A special welcome to new subscribers, visitors and friends on social media. Here is the preceding shoot that you didn’t get.

The beauty of sharing
I create shoot because I want to share some of the joys that art gives me. Social media is about being social, not self-promoting. I believe that art and entrepreneurship that aims at helping people live better lives is where creativity is found today. Not in politics.

What is shoot about?
You get access to the online GlobalArt magazine. I need to gather inspiring stuff somewhere; by sharing it anyone who clicks will find something that inspires their lives or business too.

One artist among many I feature there is Iranian-born Bijan Daneshmand and his incredibly beautiful paintings and his gallery Janet Rady Fine Art in London whose focus is the Middle East.

It’s sharing and art for cultural bridgebuilding and civilisation – the opposite of war and bombing.

I write a photo and other art blog partly to clarify things for myself and explain things to people who ask and many tell me it’s educational – which makes me, also a teacher, happy.

And what is a homepage? It’s an online exhibition space. Some spend as much time there as they would in a gallery – many and different categories, photos you can enlarge. Important for anyone living far from Sweden and possible thanks to modern technology.

Visitors tell me that my studio is more like a home than a cool, commercial gallery where it is all about selling. You can watch photos, read books and discuss art and global affairs with me. By appointment only – but anytime; and I am present to care for each visitor.

Exhibition “Abstract Real” on into April
Photography that is non-figurative, doesn’t re-present something out there. Some words about it on my blogHave a sneak peek here of some of the works that are on show.

Will wing into your mailbox 2 times a month from now on.
A good ‘weekbegin’ to you!
And remember that it’s the arts that help us remain human…

My best

Shoot # 15

Jim Shaw's monumental Jim Shaw’s monumental “Capitol Viscera Appliances” (2011) being watched by visitors at Art Basel 2014 © Jan Oberg 2015

Lund, Sweden – July 4, 2015

Hi!

Whether you are an old or new friend I welcome you to Oberg PhotoGraphics .

Shoot is a single photo, a digital gift – a moment of meditation – with which I wish you a good Sunday and weekbegin.

Now, I’m exploring what happens when we go to exhibitions. Above is a shot of spectators in front of Jim Shaw’s monumental “Capitol Viscera Appliances” (2011) – with nuclear explosion, technological products and the White House. It is af if they witness and photograph the end of the world…

I explore that in some sketch-like photos I’ve uploaded to my Pinterest place under the headline  “Pictures At An Exhibition” – follow if you like, there will be more. Visitors and gallery owners at Art Basel and the Biennale may find themselves there.

Can pictures of such art-ificial settings become art beyond documentation?

Great artists like Eric Fischl, Thomas Struth and David Hockney seem to say “Yes”.

All the earlier Shoot messages are now at my photo and other art blog. And lots from Art Basel on Instagram – let’s follow!

Finally, don’t miss the new GlobalArt Magazine which I curate. Welcome to follow it.

My best
Jan Oberg

PS Thanks for all encouraging comments to and sharing these “Shoots”.

Signerade verk i begränsade upplagor och med tryckdokumentation kommer aldrig att förlora värde i en värld av (överdriven) massproduktion.
Dessutom uppvärderas fotokonsten i dessa år överallt internationellt, också vad gäller priser.

I december hänger det ett 40-tal bilder av mänga olika slag i mitt lilla galleri – tryckta på fine art papers, canvas och stål…

Massor av nya foton på hemsidan

Dessutom har jag uppdaterat min fotohemsida med många nya bilder från 2012 – titta gärna in på min hemsida och föreställ dig dessa i olika format på olika platser.
