What I do: carve stone, write trashy novels,
and reblog whatever my eyeholes and brainpan tell me to. Which means that someties it's NSFW.
If you follow me, most likely I will follow you.... Fell free to unfollow me if I offend. Honestly, I probably won't even know that it was you who left the party... : )
This painting possibly originated from one of the artist’s photographs since he’s featured himself within it, sheathed in a smock. He also was a sculptor and teacher and worked quiet wonderfully within orientalism. I adore equally each of his interior paintings and nudes, and also especially the bathing works…which first caught my eye a few months back.
Temporal Mimesisby Mario D. Fischer ”narrates a figurative act. Using cinematography and 3D-scanning techniques the form encapsulates the trajectory. The realization denaturalize the unseen to a traceable artifact. The form unsettles and raises the awareness of the caducity of the fleeting moment.”
I like the piece well enough. The last two sentences make me want to pull out a shotgun and hunt down the bastard with a death grip on the unabridged dictionary. Denaturalize? Caducity? Hell, why don’t you just write “I know more words that you do, so that makes me special” At least that would be more intelligible. Oooh, big word. I know a few others, like obfuscation, and overcompensation. Simple words infer, sometimes even invoke meaning. Overcomplicated jargon breeds contempt from those who can decipher your meaning, and alienates those who don’t happen to have a vocabulary quite as corpulent as yours.
Tim Noble and Sue Webster take ordinary objects - like rubbish - to make sculptures which really don’t look like anything. The magic happens when they point a light at them and project the shadows onto the walls. The process of transformations, from trash to recognisable forms, echoes the idea of perceptual psychology - a form of evaluation used for psychological patients. Noble and Webster have repeatedly played with the idea of how humans perceive abstract images and define them with a meaning. The result is surprisingly powerful, redefining how abstract forms can transform into figurative ones.

Located in Villa di Pratolino in Tuscany, Italy, which at one point contained a cave, grotto, and multiple water pipes that would spray visitors. Though I’m not convinced this isnt the hardened remains of a fallen god.
