photography Michael Accorsi art studio Santa Barbara fair amusement rides carnival ferris wheel

I took some long exposure photographs at the fair in Santa Barbara last night.  I’m happy with how they came out.  Get out there and go to a fair, get on the rides, try and win huge toys.  You’ll feel like a kid in 3, 2, 1.  

Here are samples from my shoot  Flickr Page

April is for Abstracts

Abstracts
Guests will say "Whoa that’s cool?,"  "What colors!" and "What is it exactly?"  when you hang an abstract on the wall.  Abstract paintings, like a crescendo of a fireworks show engage and free us from structure and composition.  They let us imagine and associate to things we try to put our finger on, but seemingly can’t seem to do.  My favorite abstract artist, Russian painter Wassily Kandinsky once remarked, “I applied streaks and blobs of color onto the canvas with a palette knife and I made them sing with all the intensity I could.”  


 Blue Shadows.  Watercolor on paper, 18x20. ©Accorsi Studios, 2004. Private Collection, New York

This painting is entirely created from watercolor.  To achieve this deep effect over 30 glazes of paint were applied over and over, until it seemed like stained glass.  


The Comet. oil on canvas, 42 x 72 in. ©Accorsi Studios, 2013.  $3,870

The Comet (above) is a roller coaster in Hershey Park where I spent a lot of my summers with my grandmother.  This would be more in the genre of Abstract Realism (a realistic subject rendered in the artist’s style).  I have two versions of this painting:  1) The wall sized painting depicted above 42 x 72  or a acrylic reprint which is 24” by 40” and much more affordable at $650.

By The Road.  Mixed media, acrylic, 16x20.  ©Accorsi Studios. 2010.  $400. 


Prints
Selling prints is so easy because you can customize any painting on any surface you want.  Visit my Fine Art America Page to make your selection and order what you would like.  They are fantastic quality and quick to ship your purchase to you safely and quickly.

Accorsi Studios is Expanding 

A lot of fun things are happening in our studio - a new studio is finished construction, we’ve been working in video and film, and to keep up with the work, I’ve had to hire assistants.  So now, there’s a staff.  Security is headed by Sunny Rollins, my golden retriever.  

Check out the YouTube Channel we are currently writing a script for a documentary short to be shot this summer.   So, I’ll try and break free to send out updates and newsletters.  

Thank you and Happy Spring!

gopro film video michael accorsi accorsi studios production indie

Mounted a GoPro Hero 3 on my car for some footage of the California highway.  Took time lapse photos so enjoy a few hundred miles in under 3 minutes.  

I have been working on some film projects this year and loving it.  There are highly talented people working in my studio with shooting, post production and of course hilarious and inspiring ideas for films.  

Contact me on the front page if you need help with editing or cleaning up some film to make it shine.

MACLA latin american art luis gonzalez-palma art photography michael accorsi Plotlines Art Blog
Arrancame El Miedo / Take Away My Fear, Ed. 11/40 1998, Photogravure w/ bitumen 32 x 32 in.
The artwork of Louis Gonzalez-Palma was at MACLA (Movimiento de Arte y Cultura Latino Americana) in San Jose. 
When I first saw the photograph Arrancame El Miedo I was reminded of the copper photographs of Edward Curtis.  Then noticed brushstrokes on the surface of the photograph.  These photographs were coated in an emulsion of pigment probably in an acrylic medium.  The effect in person is remarkably moody and stunning.  
Perhaps he left the script in the original pigment color across the forehead of the subject.  
A fantastic concept, artist and gallery in the heart of San Jose.

Stephen King’s 20 Rules for Writers

There’s a lot of lists on the internet, most self-gratifying attempts of marketers to lure you to their sites and “products.”  This is practically on point!  A list all creatives and productive people should follow.  

A few years ago I gave up TV for a New Years Resolution and I noticed my guitar playing, my artwork lifting in quality and the speed I was learning songs, etc.  Learning, challenging myself was addicting.  I noticed as I kept with it for 4-5 years that our brains can become passive with the TV on, but even when its off.  Our brains begin sparking and can accelerate when we let them work to fill dead space.  

A must read article:  LINK
