Summer Day by Ralu77
The concept of avant-garde refers primarily to artists, writers, composers and thinkers whose work is opposed to mainstream cultural values and often has a trenchant social or political edge. Many writers, critics and theorists made assertions about vanguard culture during the formative years of modernism, although the initial definitive statement on the avant-garde was the essay Avant-Garde and Kitsch by New York art critic Clement Greenberg, published in Partisan Review in 1939. As the essay’s title suggests, Greenberg argued that vanguard culture has historically been opposed to "high" or "mainstream" culture, and that it has also rejected the artificially synthesized mass culture that has been produced by industrialization. Each of these media is a direct product of Capitalism—they are all now substantial industries—and as such they are driven by the same profit-fixated motives of other sectors of manufacturing, not the ideals of true art. For Greenberg, these forms were therefore kitsch: phony, faked or mechanical culture, which often pretended to be more than they were by using formal devices stolen from vanguard culture. For instance, during the 1930s the advertising industry was quick to take visual mannerisms from surrealism, but this does not mean that 1930s advertising photographs are truly surreal. It was a matter of style without substance.

In this sense Greenberg was at pains to distance true avant-garde creativity from the market-driven fashion change and superficial stylistic innovation that are sometimes used to claim privileged status for these manufactured forms of the new consumer culture.

From the early 20th century, the expression was mainly any experimental or innovative idea or application in all fields of human activity, mainly in the areas of art, culture and even politics.

As a concept identified with everything bold, theoretically pre-season as a wonderful harbinger of future application or acceptance. Certainly in this sense is not a few cases, with the innovative nature of this expression can also be considered a revolutionary in the status quo and come into conflict with traditional ideologies and principles followed, characterized even as unorthodox or extremist.

Hippocrates claims that everything creates from the
4 elements, each of which corresponds the status of
cold, dry, hot, liquid.
Cold by Hartmut-Lerch
dry wind by foureyes Dry River by BenHeine Liquid imagination by EliseEnchanted

In solid body components prevail earthy and the watery liquid.
Coherent essence of everything is spirit that
warm innate in humans and it is located in the heart.
Fundamentals body fluids are blood, phlegm, yellow bile and black.
Of balance and imbalance depends health or disease..
Anatomy Study - Arm 1 by Helen-Baq BlooD by WampiruS Transverse by EintoeRn

In the body resides a great animal power, the nature. Since this force depends on the maintenance, development, and treatment of the body and restore to normal.
This is the conception of the genius mind of Hippocrates.
That balance of the bio-energy potential of the organisms.
Hippocrates does not detect the disease in organs.
Meme Hack Davinchi by Kosen-Hatake
He believes that the body is sick or treated as a whole and
thus the patient is treated with a completely different eye and perspective.

Tragale smo u okeanu umjetničkih djela,
tražeći nit koja će nas spajati,
nudeći tišinu  i buku podjednako,
ne očekujući da nas razumiju oni
koji to ne mogu
...tragale smo i pronašle
simfoniju različitosti !
Hvala Vam jer ste vjerovali da je
Vaša umjetnost važna za našu grupu.
Hvala, jer ste svesrdno promovisali našu
viziju,a pri tome ostali dosljedni
Vašoj umjetnosti.

Želimo Vam sve najbolje u 2013.godini!

Expressionism-From the word "expression" (Ausdruck).
up in smoke by live-by-evil
The expression is the goal for many artists instead of passive Impressionism. The artist's creative flair is visible and there is a more cerebral, theoretical approach. With great interest in metaphysics and symbolism. That way there are artists that integrate the entire history of world art-based "spiritual" rather closely morphic content projects. An art of pure emotion would upset the leveling of modern materialistic era-a "hope" perhaps excessive but definitely heartwarming and bright as a moral example. The arts have always had frequent symbolic and allegorical connotations.*

The pop art movement that is from the mid 50's in England (Richard Hamilton, Peter Blake, ..) and early 60's in the U.S. sought to unite art with life and colorful images of society Western world, expressed through television and cinema advertising and fashion, has been the work of Andy Warhol, Roy Lichtenstein, Tom Wesselmann, James Rosenquist, Claes Oldenburg, ...
Pop art gives excerpts from the world of the average American citizen once celebrating and sometimes commenting on the "American Dream" of comfort and success. Pop = popular art so recognizable understood. This personification of the author-meets impersonal sources of material and mechanical processes often works.
