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.

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 .

Stick it to me     Just to remind you!

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.           




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.            

Here are some:

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.
