my latest art, the last hurrah, refers (in my mind) to two things: the transition (going from grey to green to the sun) from fossil fuels to renewables, and the reverse: the transition from obama to trump. one is a cause for celebration; one is not. will we ever learn?

very icy, but went to my eye exam anyway (tx, sh). watched south pacific (endless blue) and the agenda (dealing with dementia, dementia in indigenous communities). reading about stuart davis (above, 1892-1964), who made art like this:
‘That day in November 1879, as Marcelino Sanz de Sautuola stood speechless below the painted ceiling of Altamira, was the first time we know of that an artist from the distant Stone Age touched the soul of a modern person.’ The Cave Painters, 50.

susan went to the field nats. i stayed home and watched wild arabia (shifting sands) and the agenda (what now, america?; an american life). susan came home and we watched her story: the female revolution (religion) and art of scandinavia (once upon a time in denmark). (pictured is an example of ‘danish modern‘ furniture, like the kind my parents chose.)
‘Maybe every other American movie shouldn’t be based on a comic book. Other countries will think Americans live in an infantile fantasy land where reality is whatever we say it is and every problem can be solved with violence.’–Bill Maher.

‘Breuil believed that art began with a desire for disguise…. They helped with the hunt…. Religion in the form of ceremonies to exert a magical power over game appeared only after art was established in the form of masks and disguises.’ The Cave Painters, 76.
