The Bleu Céleste: A Cocktail Inspired By MoMA's New Henri Matisse Exhibition

Running through February 8, the Museum of Modern Art in Manhattan will be showing the latest of their Henri Matisse exhibitions. "Henri Matisse: The Cut-Outs" puts on display the artist's known history of collaging paper cut-outs instead of using acrylics to create flat plains of color in his work. Since the art is undoubtedly narrows the line between arts and crafts, Cacao Prieto Distillery got a little crafty themselves, creating the Bleu Céleste, a brightly colored cocktail complete with a very Matisse-shaped orange peel to garnish the rim. Enjoy this artsy cocktail while checking out the included photos of some of the works on display at the MoMA exhibition, including a preview of their exclusively published book "Henri Matisse: The Cut-Outs". ------------------------------------------------------------------- Bleu Céleste Cocktail 2 1/2 ounces Blue Curaçao 1 ounce white rum 1/2 ounce fresh squeezed lemon juice Large piece of orange rind, shaved thin for garnish 1. Mix Blue Curaçao, rum, and lemon juice in a shaker. Pour over ice. 2. Use scissors to cut out fun, Matisse-inspired shapes from the orange rind. 3. Cut a small indentation and prop on the rim of the glass.

[오늘의 맥주]: 105. 4th Anniversary Imperial IPA - Other Half Brewing Co. (아더하프 4주년 IPA)
오늘의 맥주는 Other Half Brewing Co. 의 4th Anniversary Imperial IPA입니다. 이 맥주는 아더하프의 4주년을 기념하기 위해서 나왔던 임페리얼 IPA이며, 귀리와 밀을 첨가했으며, Citra, Galaxy, Enigma, El Dorado, Mosaic 그리고 Citra(Luplin Powder)홒을 무려 쿼드러플(4번) 드라이 호핑했습니다. 맥주 정보; 이름: 4th Anniversary Imperial IPA ABV: 10% IBU: N/A 외관: 잔에 따르면, 탁하고 짙은 오랜지 색을 띠면서, 밀도가 높고 풍성한 맥주 헤드가 형성됩니다. 향: 오랜지 위주의 시트러스 향이 느껴지고, 파인애플, 망고, 페션 푸르트, 구아바 등 다양한 열대 과일 향이 느껴지면서, 홒에서 나온 듯한 은은한 풀과 허브 향이 느껴집니다. 맛: 마셔보면, 오랜지 위주의 시트러스 향과 다채로운 열대 과일 향이 느껴지면서, 은은한 풀내음이 느껴집니다. 맥주의 쓴 맛은 낮으며, 아주 약간의 알코올 부즈가 느껴지면서, 과일 위주에 맛과 향들이 뒷맛까지 긴 여운을 남깁니다. 마우스 필: 풀 보디감을 가지고 있으며, 부드러운 질감을 가지고 있습니다. 적절한 탄산감과 아주 낮은 정도에 알코올 부즈는 이 맥주의 폭발적인 맛과 향을 잘 제어해주고 있습니다. 총평: 어떤 이에게는 아더하프 최고의 IPA이라는 말에 고개가 끄덕여지는 맛을 가진 맥주라고 생각됩니다. 10도 라는 체급에서 오는 폭발적인 맛과 향을 다양한 요소로 잘 제어해주고 있으면서, 현재 NEIPA의 쥬시한 특징을 “최대치”로 강화한 듯한 인상을 줍니다. 물론, 이는 개개인에 취향 차이겠지만, 아더하프의 강렬한 이미지에서 살짝 부드러운 특징도 가지게 되면서, “팔색조”매력을 가지게 된 IPA라고 생각됩니다. Today’s beer is 4th Anniversary Imperial IPA, from Other Half Brewing Co. It is Other Half’s 4th Anniversary Quadruple Dry Hopped Imperial IPA was brewed with Pilsner malt, oats, and wheat. It hopped aggressively with Citra, Galaxy, Enigma, El Dorado, Mosaic, and Citra Lupulin Powder. The final two dry hop additions are just Galaxy, Citra Lupulin Powder, and Mosaic. Beer Info; NAME: 4th Anniversary Imperial IPA ABV: 10% IBU: N/A Appearance: It has a rich and dense beer head is formed, with a hazy orange color. Aroma: With the scent of orange-oriented citrus, and various tropical fruit scents such as pineapples, mangoes, fashions, and guava, you can feel the subtle scent of grass and herbs from the hops. Flavor: As you drink, you can feel the scent of orange-based citrus and colorful tropical fruits, and you can feel the gentle smell of grass. The bitter taste of beer is low, and the taste and aroma leave a long aftertaste with fruit-based, feeling a little bit of alcohol. Mouthfeel: It has a full body and a soft texture. Properly carbonated and the alcohol booze controls the explosive taste and aroma of this beer. Comments: For some, it is thought to be a beer with a nod to the word Other Half's best IPA. The 10 % ABV gives the impression that the current NEIPA's main characteristics have been strengthened to "maximum" while controlling the explosive taste and aroma from the weight with various factors. Of course, it's a personal preference, but I think it's an IPA that has become a "various" attraction with a slightly soft feature in Other Half's intense character. 맥주 자료 출처: https://untp.beer/5e357ee639

No worries, you won't get tipsy. If you enjoy a few shots of sake every now and then, you'll be excited to know that the warm drink actually has some amazing benefits when it comes to your skin. Yes, you read that correctly. A Japanese rice wine you usually pair with your sushi can have you waking up like Beyonce. Flawless, honey. According to our favorite girl Chrissy Teigen, she informed viewers on her daytime talk show Fab Life, that the popular skincare brand SK-II's is inspired by none other than sake. While most of us are probably wide mouthed with surprise, for the Japanese, using sake for your skin has been a tradition for years. They even go as far as bathing in the wine on New Year's Day to rid themselves of evil spirits. According the SK-II's, they use an ingredient in their skincare line called pitera ["derived from a strictly controlled natural fermentation process"] which is a strain of yeast found in the sake. How amazing and interesting is that? It's becoming a trend to find skincare products that happen to be infused with this all natural ingredient and the results happen to be amazing. So, grab yourself a shot glass, throw one back and keep scrolling to see a few products that will give you the skin you've always drank -- oops, I meant dreamt of.

Guided Tours in Distillery Rochelle Illinois
If you have a taste for whiskeys then the Illinois distilleries tours are where you should get yourself registered. The state-sponsored tour covers craft distillers, farm distilleries across the state. If you are exploring the countryside or your backyard, the guided tours should be on your to-do list in Illinois. The tours are the government's own way of giving an opportunity to the industries to reach out and engage its consumers. Distilleries are defined as factories established for the production of strong alcohol by a defined process called distillation. It is different from breweries where only beer is made from different fruits and cereals. On the other hand only hard alcohol such as whiskeys, rum, gin and vodka are made in distillery Illinois. Distillery Rochelle Illinois: What to buy Illinois distilleries in Rochelle are famous for the various whiskies they brew, to craft Vodka, Gin and Agave. Whiskeys are made from different grains. If you are looking for a sweet corn based rye whisky then the distilleries in Illinois have them for you. In this type of whiskey, the softness of wheat, the spiciness of the rye and the sweetness of corn all blend together to give you the best whiskey around. If you are looking for something more, you should try the rye whiskey in the cask, which is made from the classic recipe. In the cask, the drink is strengthened and over a period of time gets the sharpness that you love in your whiskey. If you are in the mood for whiskey that is more mature, then the double-oaked single barrel whiskey is most recommended. In this type of whiskey, a single-barrel in double oak is brought to maturity in two casks. It is made in the most authentic way, using local ingredients and the local temperature and environment give it a taste that is unique to the Rochelle region. Another hard-drink that you should buy from this region is vodka. The distilleries in this region make their vodka from corn grown on their farms. The use of local produce in the making of these hard-alcoholic drinks gives it a taste that is native to the region. For those who love their gin, rochelle region has some great gin made from man infused botanicals that are infused with juniper for that special taste that makes it gin. For those of you that want to try something different, then agave is the drink for you. Distilling Whiskey : Some Facts Every distillery brand has its own recipes using basic ingredients such as water, yeast and grains. Illinois distilleries are known to be of two basic types, apart from some hybrid options. The most common type is the distillery bar where whisky is produced and sold over the counter. The second is the distribution distillery. However regardless of the type of distillery the high point in Illinois is the craft distillery industry. Entrepreneurs have been able to create a demand for craft whiskeys and hard alcohols. Considering the popularity of craft beer, the state made changes in its legislation in 2019 to issue licenses for craft liquor. Distillery Rochelle Illinois is able to manufacture up to 100000 gallons of distilled spirits in a year. The permit however is for a distillery pub which can serve up to 5000 gallons in spirits on the premises for consumption. The legislation is also flexible in the transfer of licenses between pubs owned by the same distillery. The new legislation allows small distilleries to experiment and create craft distilleries in the new market expected to grow at an average 40% each year. The advantages for smaller manufacturers of spirit in Illinois is that they have a great market place to get at, and the potential infrastructure to operate and serve customers.

돌연변이 II Mutation II
돌연변이 II Mutation II 2017, ink, pen on paper(pannel), 600 x 600mm   " 동물과 식물. 이 한 마디는 세상의 모든 생물종을 일컫는 말이다. 그리고 인간. 인간의 환경폭력적 사고와 기계론적 자연관은 돌이킬 수 없는 문제를 낳았다. 그 문제의 근본적인 원인이 무엇인지를 찾아가다보니, 이 물음을 목도하게 되었다. 인간은 동물과는 다른 생물종으로 구분될 수 있을까? 그에 대한 답은 그림으로 대신한다. 난 돌연변이 식물을 그린다. 그 식물은 동물의 형태를 띄기도 인간의 형태를 띄기도 한다. 그 어떤 생물종보다도 빠르게 진화한 이 돌연변이 식물은 이내 자신들의 형태를 다른 무엇으로 바꾸기 시작한다. 그것은 바로 인간의 형태. 동물보다 지능과 자유의지가 월등히 높은, 다시 말해 동물보다 더 고등생물인 인간의 형태로 바꾼 것이다. 그에 따라 그들은 그들이 할 수 있는 생각과 행동을 더욱 다각화하여 진화했다. 머지 않아 그들은 사람들에게 '그들'이라 불릴 만큼 지능적이고도 위협적인 존재가 된 것이다. 그리고 끝내 그들은 인간들의 문명을 전복시킨다. 이 상상 속 돌연변이 식물들이 마지막 대목에서 인간들에게 말하고자 하는 바는 뚜렷하다. "인간은 자연을 넘어서는 그 어떤 존재도 될 수 없다."는 것. 인간 = 식물 식물 ⊂ 자연 따라서 인간 ⊂ 자연 인간은 자연을 넘어서는 그 어떤 것도 될 수 없다. Animal and Plant. This word is a word that refers to all species of the world. And Human. Environmental-violent thoughts and mechanistic nature of human have born irreversible issues. To reach the radical cause of this problem, a question had to be asked. 'Can human be classified as a different species apart from other animals/faunas?' The answer to this question can be replaced by a picture. I paint mutant plants. These plants sometimes represent a form of animal and human at other times. These plants that have evolved way quicker than any other living creature, transforms themselves into something different. That is the form of a human. It was changed to the form of a human who has an exceptionally higher free will than an animal, in other words, a higher organism than an animal. Accordingly, they have developed thoughts and behaviors in a more diverse ways. In the near future, they will be called 'them' by people as they will become an intelligent and menacing existence. Therefore, finally, they will overturn the civilization of humans. The thing that these mutated plants in this imagination want to tell humans in the last passage is very clear. That mean, "Human beings can't be beyond the nature.". Human = Plant Plant ⊂ Nature Therefore, Human ⊂ Nature Human beings can't be beyond the nature.

지금껏 몰랐던 뉴욕 2 - 플랫아이언 빌딩
뉴욕 맨해튼을 걸어 가다보면 아주 독특하게 지어져 지나가는 사람들의 시선을 한 눈에 사로잡는 건축물이 있다. 바로 플랫아이언 빌딩. 아마 영화속에서 간간히 보았을 수도 있다.  1902년에 완공된 이 건축물은 미국의 영화와 방송 및 광고에 단골로 등장하는 뉴욕의 상징적인 건물이다. 스파이더맨의 실제 정체인물 피터 파커가 용돈벌이로 사진을 찍어 팔던 데일리 버글 신문사의 사무실이 위치해 있는 곳이다. 좀비 영화 나는 전설이다 에서 윌 스미스가 머스탱을 타고 폐허가 된 뉴욕을 질주할 때도 이 인상적인 빌딩은 여지없이 등장한다. 맨해튼의 매디슨 스퀘어 파크Madison Square Park 지역의 비좁은 삼각형 부지에 자리잡고 있는 플랫아이언 빌딩Flatiron Building은 부피와 하중이 엄청났던 기존 건축물의 석재 골격 대신 강철 골격이 사용된 세계 최초의 건물로 유명하다. 총 87미터, 22층 높이를 가졌지만 흥미롭게도 가장 좁은 부분의 폭이 불과 2미터에 불과하여 그 생긴 모양새가 마치 다리미 같다고 해서 설계 당시 이름이었던 풀러 빌딩Fuller Building 대신 ‘플랫아이언’이라는 애칭으로 불리게 된, 뉴요커들의 특별한 사랑을 받는 랜드마크이다. 건물의 폭이 워낙 좁은 탓에 기존의 석재 골격으로는 도저히 건물의 가용공간이 나오지 않자 부피는 현격히 줄고 내구성이 뛰어난 철재 골격으로 시공하여 현재의 뱃머리를 닮은 보기 드문 외관을 가지게 되었다. 앤드루 카네기가 대량 생산한 값싸고 품질 좋은 철강이 이 독특한 외형의 빌딩 골조에 최초로 적용되며 석재에서 강철로의 건축 소재의 혁신이 시작되었고, 인류역사상 전례가 없는 미국의 건설 붐을 타고 바야흐로 뉴욕발 초고층 빌딩의 시대가 열릴 수 있었다. 걸어서는 오를 수 없을 만큼 높아진 플랫아이언 빌딩 내부에는, 1853년 뉴욕 건축박람회에서 처음 선보였던, 발명가 엘리샤 오티스의 엘리베이터가, 에디슨에 의해 뉴욕에서 최초로 실용화된 전기에너지를 안정적인 수직상승의 위치에너지로 바꾸어주고 있었다. 또한 같은 시기에 오티스 엘리베이터 회사의 유리 승강기가 파리의 에펠탑에 장착되며, 고대 바벨탑 이후로부터 1930년 뉴욕의 크라이슬러 빌딩이 완공되기 전까지, 인류가 쌓아 올린 세계 최고의 건축물 자리를 꿰찬 명물 철골 구조물을 세계적인 관광명소로 부각시켰다.  뉴욕에는 플랫아이언 빌딩과 외관이 매우 흡사한 건축물이 멀지 않은 거리에 또 하나 있다. 우리에게 영화 존 윅으로 익숙한 건물이다.  영화 속 건물은 뉴욕 월스트리트 비버 빌딩으로, 구글에서 검색하면 영화 속 이름처럼 콘티넨탈 호텔로 검색이 된다. 뉴욕을 가게 되면 플랫아이언 빌딩과 비버 빌딩을 비교하며 보는 재미도 꽤 쏠쏠할 것이다.

Types Of Painting
Painting might seem an easy task to do with its definition being so simple, but there's poetry in every stroke of color and a story behind each picture that an artist or painter wants to portray. Painting has been a method of displaying art for a long period and there have been different techniques to do so. There are a variety of painting procedures and each of them is beautiful and unique on its own. A beginner needs great dedication and patience to pursue the journey of being an artist and to learn any painting technique completely. We have previously covered some of the painting techniques in our first blog about the same. Here we present other styles of painting that are currently popular that one can try and get along with. Watercolor Painting Watercolor painting is as common as oil and acrylic painting. This is a well-known technique in which the colors are mixed with water to create the art. The paper sheets are used to create watercolor art most of the time. Watercolors, on the other hand, can be used to create art on bark paper, soap sheets, wooden blocks, and papyrus. Even finger paintings with watercolors are done in many parts of the world, such as China. Pencil Sketches I am one of those people who are fond of watching pencil sketches. The depth and details can just blow away your mind. It takes effort to understand the tones and grades for each piece and part of the art. These are made from graphite materials. Pencils are most often used because of their simplicity and versatility. Graphite can be smudged like kohl and thus can enhance the beauty of anything depicted on paper; it simply brings your thoughts to life. Glass Paintings Ever visited monuments and wondered about the beauty of glass paintings? The Greek and Roman cultures have portrayed some delightful art through glass paintings. The multicolor display of images and thoughts is amazing and gets even more personified when the light passes through the medium. It simply illuminates the locations. You can find them at old monuments and churches as well. They are inspired by the concept of stained glass painting. Collage Painting It is a very beautiful form of art. It is formed by assembling various creative pieces to form a visual effect of an image. A collage can be made from a variety of materials, including paper scraps, ribbons, magazines, newspapers, paint colors, and so on. is the accumulation of different pieces of art brought together to represent a single entity. It can have various themes and requires less budget yet comes out as an astonishing piece of art. Spray Painting. These are made out of aerosol painting sprays and are specially used on walls. They are magnificent; the colored area is kept open, while the other area is closed to keep the color from spreading all around them. These are the other painting techniques that exist and are trending today. Visit sites like Shopify to buy your painting essentials.
