Were the Dadaists Time Travellers? and other questions I’d like to ask Hans Richter   Pick-button-0f29c6c075c514ef3a12253f1d60018e

The movie camera – that bastard son of a thousand alchemists, illusionists, inventors, and old showmen – could have been purpose built for the Dadaists and the Surrealists. If it had slipped into obscurity or been written off as gimmick after they had made use of it, its journey into existence could have been said to be worthwhile. It's as if their paths were always destined to cross. In the Hans Richter show Encounters – "From Dada till today" at Martin-Gropius-Bau you can see the very gen... [more]

In the world of television, there is a theory which is commonly referred to as the 'Seinfeld Is Unfunny' trope; put simply, it refers to the retroactive viewing of a thing which, though innovative in its day, seems expected in the modern world. Paradoxically, things fall prey to the Seinfeld Is Unfunny phenomenon precisely because they themselves were the first to carve out the particular style which now renders them passé or wholly predictable in the eyes of the viewer. (The pop-culture t... [more]

a historical note (written Oct, 2008)  
9/6/09 Posted 9/6/09

I believe my cereal box work to be inspired by the Dada movement. The reason I say this is because from what I recall about the period art was a reflection, a mirror of life. Now I want to qualify my spin on those concepts by confessing that I have never been a painter, but I know that representational art (painting & sculpture) obviously draws on themes and imagery from life and many artists have both mastered the concept(s) and pushed the envelope. Think of 2 Spaniards-Goya & Dali-both expert and re... [more]

Welcome to the School of Cubist Empiricism

“Art is life is art” Specifically the initial work I’m putting up here represents only my most recent efforts, later I might add links and/or additional content which is reflective of my college years and immediately afterward. The work shown here evolved out of my development of what I believe to be a school of thought, or rather of design methodology and project development, at least from my perspective. After I attended a museum lecture series at the Norton Simon in the fall of 2004 I had an artistic breakthro... [more]

La Guerre Belge

“WAT IS ER AAN DE HAND IN BELGIE?” hoorde ik een onbekende in mijn hoofd roepen toen ik de kleur van het zeewater probeerde te doorgronden. Waarom iets schilderen wat je kunt fotograferen? Dat deel ik alvast met sommige digitale kunstenaars. Maar goed: politiek? Waarom niet? Dan kom ik nog eens de barbaren tegemoet die vinden dat kunst teveel navelstaarderij is. De gedachte dat kunst één of ander maatschappelijk nut moet hebben komt immers dikwijls neer op de ultieme wens alles krampachtig... [more]
