Painting is used to convey creative expression. Much like drawing, painting is a visual art form. Brushes, and various tools are used to apply pigment to a hard surface. Throughout history, painting has been used to describe a moment, historical record, political views, emotion and many other areas of the human condition. Paint or pigment has been mixed with oils, egg, thinner, and a variety of other less common additives to give the image qualities such as mood, integrity, depth and adhesion.
An innovative canvas, aluminum comes in standard and textured finishes and is a receptive surface for oil paints and photographic prints. Emillions artist, Andreas Nottebohm, has perfected a shimmering three-dimensionality to his aluminum paintings, while Emillions photographer, Ryan Saevitz, uses aluminum photographic printing to bring a modernity to his landscapes and nature scenes. Dennis Sabo opts for the consistent richness of saturation achieved by prints on metal.
Contemporary art encompasses the art of today, produced by living artists. The art of today benefits from all the previous art movements in history as artists work in a wide array of mediums, formats, and styles, while transgressing art forms: music, architecture, video, performance art, living installations, technology.
