The contortionism=Amazing!

Posted in Art with tags , , on 22/02/2010 by Alina

Contortion is an unusual form of physical display which involves the dramatic bending and flexing of the human body. Contortion is often part of acrobatics and circus acts. In general, contortionists have unusual natural flexibility, which is then enhanced through gymnastic training.
Most contortionists are categorized as either frontbenders or backbenders, depending on the direction in which their spine is more flexible. Relatively few performers are equally adept at bending both frontwards and backwards.

Some of the skills performed by contortionists include:
Frontbending skills such as folding forward at the waist with the legs straight, or placing one or both legs behind the neck or shoulders with the knees bent (called a human knot). They may also pass their body through a ring or barrel while in a forward fold.
Backbending skills such as touching one’s head to one’s feet, or all the way to the buttocks (called a head-seat), while standing, lying on the floor, or in a handstand. A Marinelli bend is a backbend while supported only by a grip at the top of a short post that is held in the mouth.
Splits and over splits (a split of more than 180 degrees) may be included in front bending or back bending acts. An over split may be performed while the feet are supported by two chairs or by two assistants.
Enterology is the practice of squeezing one’s body into a small, knee-high box or other container which appears to be much too small for a person to fit in.
Dislocations of the shoulders or hip joints are sometimes performed as a short novelty act by itself. One example is lifting the arm to the side until it passes behind the head and lies across the top of the shoulders.
Like other visual arts, a contortion performance can convey any of several emotions, depending on the choreography and costumes that are chosen, as well as the personality and acting skills of the performer. Performers might choose a style that is beautiful, athletic, weird, shocking, sensual, erotic or humorous, and each has fans that prefer that particular style, sometimes to the exclusion of other styles.

A graphic artist

Marcel Chirnoaga (1930 – 2008) was one of the most important contemporary Romanian artists, world-renowned for his original and profound style, although he was mostly a self-taught artist.
Born on August 17th 1930 in Busteni, Romania, in the beginning he regarded drawing and art simply as a past time and small hobby, and actually was a graduate of the Physics and Mathematics Faculty, in 1952. Although his interest seemed to be drawn towards numbers and abstractions, he continued drawing in his spare time, learning as he went, focusing on building and elegant, complicated and instantly recognizable style. A style which would eventually make him one of the most important graphical artists of 20th century Romania.
Practically abandoning a future career in mathematics and the likes, Marcel Chirnoaga became a member of the UAP (Artist’s Union) of Romania in 1953 and presented his first ever personal exhibition just two years later, in 1955, with surprising success for someone who did not have a formal education in the field and used a strikingly original drawing style. For the beginning was just as the rest of his artistic life, for Chirnoaga proffered to focus mainly on drawings and prints, genres that he took farther than everybody else. His choice of subjects – mythological themes, fairytales, legends, animals, fantastic beings, literature – often led to criticism from those who wanted a more “realistic” approach, but Marcel Chirnoaga continued to work this way and enjoyed his success.
After that first solo exhibition he would have several others, in Romania and abroad, personal or group shows, each time being regarded as a deeply original and profound artist. His first show abroad was in 1969 in Stuttgart, Germany, and offered foreign collectors and art lovers to discover the works of an original and strong young draftsman. Over the next decades, his works could be enjoyed in exhibitions mounted in Italy, Germany, USA, France, Belgium, Sweden, China. Several of his works were bought by foreign collectors and museums, and can now be found in private collection and galleries from all over the world. Because of the value of his works, Marcel Chirnoaga also received several national and international prizes and distinctions over time, but for his admirers it seems that he never received quite enough.
The artist passed away, due to an older lung disease, at 77 years old.
He is my favorite graphic artist 😀
I like how he created these beautiful drawings.
He saw world in a different way.
I can say that in an interesting way…I think that it’s better to take a look yourself at these pictures 😉
You will be convinced of his passion.
Enjoy it! 😉 🙂
