Tangled Up in Zen — Artistcoveries (Reblog)

Samhain/All Saints: The Great Cloud of Witnesses — Sabbats and Sabbaths (Reblog)

Therefore, since we are surrounded by so great a cloud of witnesses, let us also lay aside every weight and the sin that clings so closely, and let us run with perseverance the race that is set before us.  [Heb 12:1. NRSV] As we approach the celebration of Samhain as well as All Saint’s Day, […]

Cézanne: ‘The Father of Modern Art’ — msamba (Reblog)

Paul Cézanne is perhaps one of the best-loved painters of Western art. Yet the popularity of his still life and landscape works has perhaps tamed the radicality of his vision in our own eyes. It is easy to forget that these seemingly traditional 19th century Post-Impressionist paintings caused ‘a landslide in art’. Jacky Klein explains […]

Murder At The Gallery (Tuesday Poetics dVerse)

It was at the Turner Exhibition.
Hutchings was a quiet lad, for a copper;
he had a passion which no one suspected — and it got him killed.
I took the call and we all piled ’round.
There he was, wrapped up in bubble wrap,
sequestered in the store room
next to ‘Snow Storm’; not one of my favourites.
Someone had taken a scalpel to him,
a right mess he was, poor lad.
When we got to his flat there were art books all over,
though not a morsel in the fridge. Evidently Hutchings —
I shall call him George — used to feed on art.

A History of Fruit and Art — Where Creativity Works (Reblog)

“With an apple I will astonish Paris.” – Paul Cézanne, 1839-1906 Fruit’s existence is one of my favorite parts of being a human. It sounds silly, but the sensation of eating something that is explicitly designed by nature for that purpose fills me with a wonderful sense of contentment. Fruit is beautiful to look at, […]
