The stars are falling
Catch them
Hold them
Burn them onto
The night sky
They fall away
From us
Rushing into nothing

We Dance
Night and Day
The moon caught
By a gossamer thread
Floating round and round
Our earth
While we float round and round
Our Sun
Caught by a gossamer thread
So we dance
Round and round
Night and day

Give me a rocket ship
Let me fly to space
Just beyond the blue line
Where earth becomes
Soundless darkness
I would climb out into
That soundless place
Let all of my sound
My rage, my joy,
My Faith,
My anger, my disbelief,
My sorrow, my happiness-
Let it all out into
Space
Let it fly to the stars

Plum Sky
Plum Sky

I swoon under
The stars in the
Depth of darkness
Overcome by their
Vastness
Rising and arcing
Over this insignificance

This traveling light
Comes to rest at last
And give hope to
Us as we shiver in
The shadow of our
Planet waiting for
It to turn us into
The light

Belief in a One
Who brings light
And with it hope
Circles in the outer
Regions of my exosphere
Like satellites beaming
Reruns of Lucy and Star Trek

The earth
Tilts
Ever
So
Gently;

Do
They
Feel
It’s
Pull
Change?
As
The
Length of day
Changes
They must
Long
For

More
More
More

Their beating
Wings
Their pounding
Hooves
Their swirling
Leaves
All moving
All pulsing
With life

Changing
Rearranging

Creating Beauty Slowly – The Artwork of Maria Kreyn

Fever by Maria Kreyn
Fever by Maria Kreyn

 

“I love it when work is profoundly beautifully made and when it’s difficult to make. When you work on something for a long time, magic happens, beauty happens. That’s what I seen in great works from the tradition, and that’s what deserves to bridge with our art world. It’s profoundly relevant. Human behavior has not changed over time. Everything you have in your mental, genetic, ancestral code reveals itself all the time.”  – from an interview on Combustus with Maria Kreyn

Understanding This New Art Movement of Defacement Part 3

Part 1

Part 2

Part 3 Are these works a metaphor for violence?

As I said before, these works to me seem to be doing violence against the subjects that are being depicted.  I am struggling to understand this.  Is this a protest against the violence in society?  Are these individuals making statements about the violence in their own lives – domestic violence, gang violence, rape, war or whatever is happening that is immediate to them?  Is this simply the out pouring of years of pent up frustration with social system we live in – the economic, military, social and religious systems that cause violence on many levels to peoples around the world?

This piece shows a a different trend within the same group of works – distortion of the face.  These works use old works, or replicas of old works, and distort them or cover the cover the faces on them.  I don’t know why – perhaps to erase the past, to strike at the power of the past on the present course of art?  To try and break free of the past?  An attempt at irony via blasphemy of past past artwork?

From the “Design and Feeling” series by Chad Wyse

That’s all I’ve got for now.  I am probably overlooking something that is obvious to someone trained in art, or to an actual artist.  This is not intended as a criticism of individual artists.  Their work stands alone.  I may not care for their art on a aesthic level,  but that is a personal preference.  What I am interested in is why now are so many artists from such a variety of places and backgrounds doing the same kind of art?  Why are they focused on faces?  Feel free to leave me a message, or yell at me, or ask me to take down your art.  clisawork@gmail.com  If you have some insight however, please let me know.
