Thursday's Three on Art

Today, Thursday's Three presents a trio of art-related videos.

✦ Filmmaker and photographer Oguz Uygur, born in Turkey but a resident of the United States, created this short, originally for a promotional piece, to demonstrate his parents' talent in paper marbling, which is called Ebru in Turkish. The marbling is exquisite.

Uygur creates documentaries, music and promotional videos, and independent movies. To see more of his work, including videos and photographs, visit his Website.

✦ Korea-born sculptor, performance artist, and installation artist Jung Ran Bae demonstrates in the video below how she created sculptures for "Teater-Totter: Human Betweens", an exhibition at the Asian Art Museum in San Francisco, on view through April 2015. Read "Jung Ran Bae Breathes a Dream Into the Museum" at the museum's blog.

✦ The Mark Rothko painting Black on Maroon (1958), one of the artist's Seagram murals donated to Tate Modern in 1970, was defaced with graffiti ink in October 2012. The video was filmed over the 18 months required to restore the painting, which returned to public view on May 13, 2014.
