Come live with me, and be my love, 
And we will some new pleasures prove 
Of golden sands, and crystal brooks, 
With silken lines, and silver hooks. 
John Donne 
yes, I will. thank you

Immersed in the Space of Belonging - 10 Nov 2021 -8:20 Black ink, grey pencil on paper

sitting in the silence of solitude, in the space of joy in the unmissing and love for being with self.

I've been working on adding sound/music to my art practice in a class with Mikey Kirkpatrick. For the first time, I was introduced to graphic scores, and I absolutely love them. This one is not a graphic score, but creating graphic scores has introduced me to the joy of works on paper. It is as soothing to me as collage is. This one is an exercise listening to, and responding to, sound.


 

Dresdner Kleinwort, Germany Investment Bank: Jimi Hendrix Advises Maria Callas, 2006

 

 Gesamtkunstwerk, meaning literally ‘total work of art’, was originally intended to mean that all types of art, including painting, music, architecture, literature or performances could be collated into one interrelated subject, project and study, so that an overarching design schema would cover all elements of a creation...A total work of art, a sumptuous aesthetic journey, a complete artistic creation which, through prodigious efforts, embraces visuals, experience and performance. These are the ideals at the heart of the Gesamtkunstwerk     Naomi Martin

Do Your Thing, Moondog by Mikey Kirkpatrick

My sage advice, pretend you haven't heard.

 I am happy down to my toes. Being an artist is the best thing in the world.

Thank you so much for the interview for NFT.NYC Ian Utile!

 

 

Looking forward to being on a panel on branding in the NFT space at NFT.NYC
on Wed 3 Nov 3:30 at Town Hall with
Nigel Write, Jonas Hudson, Luc Jodet

 

Happy Halloween

 As an artist, I am washed ashore to absorb, not to claim.

I focus on site-responsive work in my art practice, which allows for complete spontaneity. I do not enter into a space with a preconceived notion or plan. The space happens TO me. I don't happen to it.

Art as Environment
My installations are environments,
in both the digital and physical space. 
The viewer
is just as important to the work
as is the tableau. 
In fact, integral, inseparable. 
The works are not complete 
until the viewer 
participates in their existence. 



nature has it's own community. I like to think that I'm part of that community

 Live in the service of something higher and more enduring, so when the tragic transience of life at last breaks in upon you, you can feel that the thing for which you have lived does not die. Gilbert Murray

Rebirth (Venus of the Clouds) 20 October 2021


 
ReBirth of Venus 1 and 2, 20 October 2021

Today I was speaking with someone about how upset I am about being a descendant of slave owners. They wondered if I felt guilt. I said no, that is not what I feel, what I feel is grief.

 “Earth empaths are a special type of empath who [are] keenly attuned to the natural world and all of the Earth’s changes. The beauty of a waterfall can exhilarate and energize these empaths...[they] are highly sensitive to...the Earth... Sensually and energetically, [feeling] the power of a thunderstorm, the loveliness of the moon...What happens to the Earth is intimately connected to [their] body.“ Judith Orloff

my first attempt ever at making music ended up with me using a premade beat, fitting my words to it, as opposed to making my own music to fit the words 

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




This Sleeping Venus by Paul Delvaux (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

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

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! 💘

 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


a portion of today's post from the Nantucket project (see link in sidebar)

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
