Observations, art = life, life = art
been back to facebook more and i do like the works of my friends, world wide.
-shapes are symbolic and so are colors
-we respond without words
i see more and more "scars" on current works of art. The destruction of the surface, the time stamp of permanence is more and more cut into, morphing into something else. a theory i been exploring for some time now
purpose of symbols. to communicate - a message, a story.
A long time friend of mine and astrologer, posted old church images of people smiling while having their heads cut off.
....Immediately i looked for the legs...counting the number of legs and how many bodies there were.
one image had 4 heads and bodies but there were only 3 sets of legs. Typical for that time period. the number of legs was not important to thier story
lines and scratches-like scars? rips through time?witnesses of time?
we experience it every day..listen to old messages on the phone, while watching tv and talking to a loved one all at once.....click click...all overlaps -the now - the before- all rip through
