Yes... there appear be a lot of cross currents here. (no pun intended!) I'm looking at your piece ABC_2LR, this crucifixion embedded in the mayhem of digital construct and madness... beautifully packaged however which gives it the power of a compelling work of art... I have also enjoyed your words about Turner's "Rain, Steam, and Speed The Great Western Railway." What a beautiful piece and the thinking about what it means! Aha... Not sure I'll ever think about Turner the same way again. A lot more than a pretty picture but certainly that too... which counts big in my book. Merely throwing one's brilliance up on the wall doesn't interest me... if you know how to toss words, write a book. If you know how to paint, paint! Going off on a tangent here but where my obsession lies is in taking the brush into a new dimension, using today's tools and thinking about it...
Reading your blog... fascinating but citing this as it's late in NYC and will have to pick up the thread later... "The artist's acceleration and omnipresence transformed the process of artistic creation to an almost religious significance because it involves restructuring of novel time and space, a penetration into reality itself." I've been thinking a lot on the spiritual and miraculous implications of our foray into the digital... thousands of layers compressed not in x, or y, but z space and yet all this content that exists in an ether that transcends the material. Like the work too... the portraits and others... need to take time with this. Nice to meet and look forward to more. Sorry have to run now... Rozolution
