better place.

The World Art Foundation strongly believes that to lead the art world you
must serve it well. It must take on the responsibility of its education, the
betterment and the well being of the artist, and most importantly, it must
advocate that the destiny of the profession must be given back to the
professional artist where it really belongs.

WAF has assembled the world’s finest professionals and respected artists.

seek and select committed professional s with superior attitudes who prescribe to a higher set of standards and ethics. We seek individuals who are eager to elevate the profession’s prestige and image through their persona, professionalism and achievements.

This city to city, country to country search seeks the professionals that fit
the criteria of WAF.

WAF advocates the resurgence of the art profession and this can be
accomplished only if the world’s power artists unite in spirit and action to restore the image, esteem and the importance of the profession WAF accredits these professionals with a designation of Emerging Artists,
Master of the Arts and World Master of the Arts.

To create a public awareness of these designations, WAF implements a public relations effort that will distinguish the WAF and its members.

The masters through their committee work and education programs, together
with the public relations efforts and the support of WAF headquarters, will reclaim the destiny of the art profession in the 21st century

WAF is building bridges with those among the curators of museums, cultural centers and galleries who are genuinely concerned with the betterment of the artists.

WAF offers these curators a closely organized, deeply committed and highly motivated group of artists that consist of the most prominent names in the national and international art scene.

WAF seeks to share participation in the direction, rules and decision making of the auction part of the industry. We need to be a constant reminder that their power exists because artists are the sources of their commodity.

Oscar Araripe / Recent Flowers

10 de Março , 2009 Permalink

A Revolution in Painting is painting a new vase of flowers. Painting is an extremely difficult art that must be done with extreme ease.

Pretension. Demented art.

Synthesis: To do all you can, to make things out of everything, to paint, in the end, only flowers.

I prefer vases which are not flowers, flowers of art and art that creates flowers. Nothing can be fairer or better than a well painted still life full of movement and life.

They are only vases of flowers, just flowers.

I should speak of flowers. But no. I speak of butterflies. Flowers are worth nothing. Farfalas, papalotes, papillons, mariposas, butterflies, borboletas are farfalas, papalotes, papillons, mariposas, butterflies. Nothing more.

Look, kind sirs, at these new tablecloths. See this fire-red, this gold worthy of Saladins tent. This charcoal black, which I scarcely see, and which is made of cremated bones. Blue. Blue is the creation of yellow, great lord of the Sun, the best friend my shoulders have. Orange sweets. Memory, taste. Childhood, baby-pink. Fruit, flowers in the gardens of restituted joys.

To receive with flowers. Nothing better.

Nothing greater.

Oscar Araripe / March 2009 / Translated by Susan Casement.
