What is it with Trump. Rolling back the protection of wild life. Is it just because his son likes to hunt, fancying himself as Hemmingway. The picture of him holding up an elephants tail with a knife he has just used to cut it off. His father, Donald Trump senior abuser of women and supporter of child molesters wants to really be a royal family and lord it over everyone. Lets get together and dethrone him.
Trump is a menace to society. Already we are feeling the effects of his handy work. The Keystone pipeline has sprung a leak. That means if there is an aquafer below the spill the water will be unusable for god knows how long. This is but one thing. With the roll back of so many laws put in place to protect us from predator bankers and oil speculators by thoughtful Obama he is destroying our environment, all for what/ Money. He is all about money, that’s all he knows.
Now the sex scandals. I hope all the women he abused come out of the woodwork and tell their stories as they have done with Rob Moore and Al Franken. He is silent on the Moore issue but blasting Franken. Let’s get this twit impeached before he goes berserk and destroys the world we live in and have put up safe guards for our children and grandchildren. Do what you can to banish this lunatic.
Looking back through some old work I found a work called ” Anger ” !966. I was living in Manhattan at this time and the Viet Nam war was raging. There where anti war marches all over the place. Even a march on Washington to levitate the White House. There was a lot of anger in the air as body bags where arriving daily from the war. I vented my spleen on a few paintings.
This painting represents Adam and Eve being tossed out of Eden. I am not a religious person as I feel most wars are bought about by religion. Right now in this country the president, Trump, is using religion to sow discord and anger thought the nation. He, Trump is a fool. Apparently he watches Fox new and believes their dishonest reports. He is angry because he cannot get his own way the way he was able to in private business by bullying.
Ron Morosan a good friend and artist has just recently written a post on Arteidolia.com. It was fashioned on an interview. He focuses on the fifties through seventies. I was active in those years. There have been many articles lately on that period of art that was overshadowed by OP,POP, Minimal, Colour field and other groups that arrived on the scene. It was not that these groups where not good artists it’s just that figurative expression somehow became ignored. Now galleries and collectors are going back and looking at some very fine art that was ignored.
As a painter I have always thought in terms of space and time. Though space does not exist in painting it is always a thought. Time certainly does not exist in painting unless one goes by the date it was painted. Einstein and Hawking’s feel that time and space are connected. I don’t think that can be so as space can be defined and time cannot be defined. I’m not a physicist and could be wrong about this. On the other hand as an artist space and time are constant thoughts while painting.
Another thing I think of constantly as an artist is the forth dimension. I feel it exists but only can be experienced through constantly being in search of the truth. In art one cannot fake the truth. It is through constant searching one can come upon the fourth dimension. It is often , ( but not always ) while painting a breakthrough can happen . It is as if one breaks through a barrier into another dimension creating something very special, commonly known as a masterpiece. This does not diminish other works as they are all steps to achieving the breakthrough. It is not an easily state of mind to arrive at and not achieved that often. Hence the masterpiece.
What a nightmare Trump is. He scares the daylights outta me. I not only get the feeling he is mad but somehow know he is. I lived through a horrible experience, “The Blitz” of ww 2. and it was no fun believe me. Trump avoided the draft, I only wish he had experienced Viet Nam. He may have had a different approach to war. This painting gives you an idea of how the thought of war makes me feel. I have two children and two grand children at the age I was when WW2 started. Why should they be subjected to the same as their Grand Dad was.
