Hello Polymer Clay Artists!I was wondering if any of you are members of The International Polymer Clay Association and if you are going to participate in their annual polymer clay competition? This…Continue
It has been some time since any of us have commented on this group page. Today, I learned a new member has joined.
Glad to learn that Kandolo has added his name to this group of polymer artists/enthusiasts.
Kandolo, please feel free to post or comment on your work with polymer.
Hope everyone is enjoying their Summer.

Thanks for the introduction to polymer.Love working with polymer now. This is a polymer and stone piece I made.
Colonizing Abstraction: MoMA's Inventing Abstraction Show Denies It...
by G. Roger Denson, 2/14/2013
Shouldn't the most authoritative of our cultural institutions be as mindful of the language used in representing the history of international art, especially a history in which mitigating the injuries historically wrought by political and cultural colonizations still within memory are required to facilitate a new global civilization eager for crosscultural exchange?
I'm referring to the title of the Museum of Modern Art's current exhibition, Inventing Abstraction, 1910-1925. It may seem a benign choice of words to Europeans and Americans who have been educated with little orientation to our former roles as colonizing nations, but to art audiences from the myriad nations with whom we are building the new global agora, the title conveys a dishonest attempt to sell the world on a genesis of abstraction that is entirely a modern European enterprise. How much more historically accurate and relevant the show's title would have been had the curators added two small letters--the "Re" of Reinventing Abstraction. After all, the show's curator, Leah Dickerman, and assistant curator, Masha Chlenova, both from MoMA's Department of Painting and Sculpture, did the right thing in entitling a listening gallery for modernist European music, Reinventing Music.
The intent is clear. MoMA is sensible enough to concede that music existed prior to 1900, but by implication then seems to dispose of all sense in asserting that visual abstraction did not. More to the point, MoMA appears unwilling to admit that visual abstraction existed outside of Europe, let alone that it can be found on all six habitable continents for at least tens of thousands of years.
