What have we done?                


A nation divided into deplorables and despicables.  What's your pick.

If one is to believe our astronomers there might be a black hole in the middle of our bubble;        
 imagine an image of an ancient black hole that may or may not be there anymore,        
 making a "chirp" sound derived from the speed of gravity (whatwever that might be)        
by way of an interference gravitometer. It doesn't get better than that!    
        

Here is one derived from the corona on Jupiter:                                                                                   

in your black hole

Perhaps a more down to earth perspective:            


    it's happening         


        Or just unwrap the image.             

Beware though: To unwrap it is to change it.            

Beware of old light! Did anyone ever test if old light travels at the same speed as new light.            

I bet you they haven't, they take the old doctrines as for granted.            

           
  
Unwrapped perspective                

Mr. Schroedinger, where are you when you're needed?            

 
Or was this just another worped wrap? Mr.DeMill.  
             




Speaking of illusions brings us to Translation,                                                              

which seems to work only with the simplest of texts.           
Truth be told:  There is no such thing as a translation.            

There is merely interpretation,           
hopefully done in the sense that the author had intended.           

This realization makes           
 a thurow understanding of a text a precondition,           

which is usually not a given.

Free Sample:                                          

By Heinrich von Kleist in 1810 & still valid:                                           

  "Über das Marionettentheater” <=> "On the Marionette Theatre",        
published in the Berliner Abendblätter newspaper in December 1810         


It is still worth reading.

Run and chew, but better not run in high heels,         

especially not in rough terrain.        

In the news lately:   The  red-shoe story  is no longer fiction,       

 nor is the shoe a prototype, it is now a product.      

The only difference: Bluetooth connectivity instead of USB cable.       


 Here are the five initial chapters                       

of the red shoe story:        

    Chapter 1   Chapter 2   Chapter 3   Chapter 4   Chapter 5 .

Inspirational activities at the DelARTe studio:           


Stick it to me     Just to remind you!      


 

a broad appreciation           

Getting it out of your chair and into view at a gallery has its own rewards.                

Click on the irresistable.              

 

Art is a reflection of the onlooker           

The art you engage with is a reflection of your self.        

You are in communication with the artist        

even though what you are thinking is not         

necessarily what the artist was thinking,        

but therein lies intellectual groth and progress.       

Otherwise you'd be just looking at wall paper.       

So click on the bon appart.           

 

QED                

 

Color and presentation play a major role.        

Tough demands on the chromatose.        

Definition of "chromatose":                               

Those who are esthetically challanged        

having no sense for color combination and presentation.        

(Remember: You heared the term here first)          

      

 

anotheer good thing bursts

Another bubble is bursting, are you prepared?           

 

 

Eating still life is cruel            

Trust nature to provide color reference.              

 

 

red appears particularly attractive            

 

Presentation, e.g. framing, will help you blend your art into your environment.           

So, when you buy art expect to purchase appropriate framing as well.           

 

an alternate frame suggests itself         

 

The simplest images can be enhanced with lush presentation.           

 

suble colors and elaborate frames         

You see?!           

 

 

even simple pictures look better         

 

 Enough, the point is made.             

 

Drawings are getting rarer, as art shifts to computer art.

A swift click in the center of the drawing might transport you elsewhere

Wether the drawing is done in graphite or drawn with light.

White on black or black on white

Or black on white, white on black, or chalk and color.           

 

 neg. color drawing         

 

 

another approach to color         

 

Drawing up to the plate, e.g. voting,      

will make a vast difference at the galleries!       

 

we have made a mess of things         

 

Things are in a mess. We all know it.           

So, make a sensible move for heavens sake           

( You see, the white king moves next,            

it will not be the queen).           

 

impossible moves at chess         


 

 

But back to the more mondane aspects of art:            

The muse, the model.            

Matisse and Kokoschka used a stuffed manequin.           

Personally I prefer a real Model. So, don't be shy             

you might hang in a museum some day as part of art history.           

Contact me, you too can make a difference in art history.

A COMCAST-snare was at fault.           


And thus the empire was forged:        air your sole            

By way of illusion.
