Honestly, my iPhones have always seemed to understand what I see



This Sleeping Venus by Paul Drlvaux (1944) is so shockingly what I would create, but as an NFT, not a painting. Can't stop thinking about it. 

never. no matter what happens


 Nature enables me to maintain a deep, joyful sense of wonder about life.

Living under the sun of Los Angeles has brightened my ability to detect nuances of light.
Where once I saw a palette of grey blanketing the island, I now see gradations of glow


 

 I have turned the corner and moved beyond what I was. Thank you

the answer to "how do I emerge out of digital obscurity in the NFT space?":

as always, lead with shimmering design and trenchant copy                                                                          that cuts through the vat of sameness like a hot knife.   Chris Ames

 I am having some technical issues with my website and am unable to post on my Nantucket project, will likely continue to post on this home page for the next two weeks! I apologize for any inconvenience. Thanks!

 
I find this interview with Peter Beard on elephants to be 
relevant to the times we are in. 
I see it here on Nantucket.  
It is a self-devouring ecosystem. 
The interview clarifies his perspective in a way that no book 
I have read on him has been able to do. 


thank you for following me on Instagram, Paris! πŸ’˜

 I am so happy to be here (this healing place)



going through all my photos to find all my early digital art 
so I can post it on OpenSea
I came across these paintings I had saved
by Adolf Hirémy-Hirschl
they are so mindblowing (also mindboggling)
so full of passion and emotion and utterly contemporary
from the late 1890s! 
if my digital art could be like this, wow, I would be so happy

Wednesday 28 July 2021

                                                                                                 by the sea, 
everything is covered in a layer of moisture,
including the air,
which is a blend of the salted water from the sea
and rain
I have become obsessed with the cloud cover
we rarely see clouds in Los Angeles
previously, on Nantucket, 
I associated clouds with feeling oppressed and depressed
I only saw grey
grey on grey everywhere
grey clouds of grey days weighed heavily over the grey shingles
Living in the illuminated space where the sun always shines
has enabled me to see a new facet of nature-the ethereal beauty that is grey
It was always there,
but now I can see it
Automediality is a key component of my artistic practice.
Automediality is a form of autobiography through media,
in real time, shaped by the media outlets utilized
this journal is one of my media outlets

please see the Automediality & Me page for more information

thank you for following along with me on my journey
Transdisciplinary Art

"...emergence of a new discipline transcending 
 the boundaries of disciplinary perspective...
It can be considered as the culmination of interdisciplinary efforts...
[that] has a wholism associated with it."

What is Transdisciplinary?
Jaya Ramchandani


"the transdisciplinary artist blends all the pieces of knowledge and skill together
and creates art that we cannot define through the canons 
that specify genres as we know them.  
Art that goes beyond genre does not reveal the elements from which it is made, 
and it is manifested as a homogeneous entity that exists independently;
it goes across many disciplines, in order to reach a final destination."

What Does the Term InterdisciplinaryArtist Imply? 
Patina Lee for Widewalls


Transdisciplinary Art is the synthesization
of multiple disciplines

 my last one here. going out with a bang 



 

We've had June gloom all May. So nice to have a beautiful day 

 

I was asked to complete a survey by one of my favorite magazines: What is most damaging to our world right now? Would it be climate change, et al? No. None of the above. My write in answer: Cancel Culture. Cancel Culture is an extreme form of erasure. The rage is palpable. But what did you do? Did you really do what they said you did? It doesn't matter, because it is too late. 
You might be totally innocent. You may not even know why you have been cancelled. 

Even if you didn't do it, they can't go back and uncancel the cancel. You're deleted

 

 I wish I could take the warmth with me ☀️

I am consciously working on expanding my Environmental Art practice. The focus of Environmental Art is the artist's relationship with Nature.  I have been really struggling to find the words to describe my practice as well as consider its context within art history. I am just beginning to recognize that my work is a fusion of elements present in both Symbolism and Romanticism.  This is one of my favorite Romantic nature paintings, Wanderer above the Sea of Fog, by Caspar David Friedrich. I love that the wanderer exists within the work, because, for me, it means that the wanderer's point of view is being emphasized.

I also love the work of Ansel Adams. Although there are no figures in his photographs I find them to be just as evocative. 

While in Nature, I experience Stendahl Syndrome, and I want to convey this sense of awe in my work. Rather than attempting to influence or judge another or provide social commentary, I am merely sharing the deep love and respect I feel. I prefer to speak of the glory of nature, its astounding beauty and the emotions it evokes in me. To me, beauty is Nature’s greatest asset. 

Nature is my inspiration, and it reveals who I am in the work I create. From this perspective, I am claiming my individuality.

 Bring Them Home 

 

I hope that I will see the Marbles back in Athens before I die; 

but if they come back later I shall be reborn. Melina Mercouri 

 

Far away from their native land, the Parthenon Marbles have been situated at the British Museum for over 150 years. That certainly means that there are continuous negotiations between the Greek government, asking for their return, and the British government who, together with the Trustees of the British Museum, have refused to do this. Ian Swindale

 

You must understand what the Parthenon Marbles mean to us. They are our pride. They are our sacrifices. They are the supreme symbol of nobility. They are a tribute to democratic philosophy. They are our aspiration and our name. They are the essence of Greekness.  Melina Mercouri 


The request for the restitution of the Parthenon Marbles is not made by the Greek government in the name of the Greek nation or of Greek history. It is made in the name of the cultural heritage of the world and with the voice of the mutilated monument itself, that cries out for its marbles to be returned. Evangelos Venizelos, former Greek Minister of Culture
