Words to Help Us See/ Quote : 'On the Role of the Artist'

"What the artist does is they are able to present their music (or their art) and make evidence of their own existence on the planet, and that is a much higher calling than the economic. To me, that's the most important part, that you leave a legacy of information, whether the times are right for that information or individuals are interested in that information. Someday they will be."

My Artist's Statement

"My current work in art is an ongoing extended series called 'AENIGMATE' : Ikonic Mixed-Media/ Altarpiece Constructions. Emerging from this is a related branch of forthcoming works called 'TREE OF SOULS', (Drawings and Constructions) which I began to release in 2011. This body of collected images, likened to illuminated manuscript pages, reliquaries and ikons, stem from my interest in medieval, conceptual and narrative modes of expression. Various themes arise from my studies in art history,…

Sun Ra.... excerpt: 'A Recipe(less) Recipe'....





In my recent research into the fascinating life, music and self-fabricated 'mythology' that remains the legacy left to us of the famous Jazz-Big Band Keyboardist/ Leader Sun Ra (b. 1914 - d. 1993), I came across and wish to present here the following literary account. It takes place during the early 1960's, in downtown New York City, @ the Original, 'Sun Ra Arkestra' Headquarters, called: 'THE SUN PALACE'. This large house/…

A Quote by Kasimir Malevich.... (A Central Truth On: 'The Spiritual In Art')....

"Empty space is a place where man wishes to find asylum

and save himself from things and instruments....

In this empty space he wishes to stand outside views, images

and conceptions, outside struggle and existence

which has shattered into little pieces like ice that hinders his movements,

pushing him in different directions....

He seeks spaciousness....

he will find a location that is without path"....…

Some Passing Thoughts On the Ideas of Nature and the Real

Robert Eustace - Avant Sacred Artist www.myspace.com/roberteustace



It has become ever increasingly clear in our day that 'Nature' has become less and less that mysterious nurturing or animating force that emerged with the birth of the universe and more something that we are re-creating ourselves. We are living in the artificial construct of our own making - a world that revolves around endless simulation, the constant barrage of…

"On Materials"....

From time to time....

Someone will inevitably ask me....

"What is your art medium" ? -or-

"What kind of materials do you use" ?

I will then sort of scratch my head....

Pause ever so briefly....

Then say matter-of-factly:

"Whatever I can get MY HANDS ON" !!!!



Usually in the choice(s) of 'Which Materials' ?

Of course much slow careful (agonizing) deliberation and endless pondering

Proceeds any sort of final decision making....

Through a series…

"Your Personal Energy and Focus".... an excerpt from Michael St.Clair

* (page 53) *   "I do all my work using an intense focus, and I do not allow my energy and focus to be dragged into the devolving human world. Each one of us similarly has a light of focus; but the world steals the light of most people and uses - or misuses - it for its own ends.

 

I say "steal", but the problem is that people take part in the loss of their own energy, because they like the circus game and the distractions. The entry price into the human game is energy or…

A Quote by MORRIS BERMAN....

"The Re-enchantment of the world":

The sickness of contemporary life,

pervaded with heavy drug use and alcoholism,

stems from the futile attempt of scientific culture

to eradicate holistic perception.

But holistic cognition is a primary ecological

perception of nature rooted in biological substrate,

and present before the ego ever rises".





-another short quote-



"Commodification of knowledge necessarily means

a loss of nuance, and we see…
