Twists and Turns







Thought process of entwining, spiralling, interlocking bits and tangling mazeward travels. Heavy and light like ice cream sodas. Happy Day unto you and your kin.

Let's puncture his back all over and send him through the labyrinth nude on a very cold day. We will twist his head around backwards, like one of the rungs of hell in Dante's inferno, so his tears will flow down his back and their salt will sting the puncture wounds. Yes.

There is an interesting topic on Ed's blog today. I am not sure I agree with how he describes his idea - that sincerity is somehow inextricably linked to optimism, but that there is a "new" kind of sincerity that has to have a knowing wink of irony - embracing the opposite of the seeming sincerity simultaneously, if that makes sense. I posted a geeky comment, but still. I think FB you will be interested in his post.

Yes MM, i just posted (fearful of sounding stupid) on Ed's post. I am suspect of some of the paradigms he is setting up - as you suggest. I keep thinking that a "sincere" artist can only be someone hopelessly out of touch like a grandma painting still-lifes of teacups in her kitchen or something. I mean, aren't all artists 'sincere' in wanting to create good work - wanting to communicate? sincere intentions, yes? the knowing wink is pretty boring anyway. so done. I should have posted this on his blog. I think 'sincerity' is a bad term.

that earlier post(on ed's blog) about the artist who uses the star wars mythology in his work sincerely - my first reaction to that was that the artist may say that but is going to the trouble to point it out in order to be clever. i mean, come on. but when it gets down to it i don't really care. i wonder - is the artwork any good. does that make any sense. babbling.

my head hurts.

mountain man said...

FB I couldnt' get through the comments on that post with the Star Wars example. My attention span can be shockingly short at times.

Sugar is good for the head aches. As are tabs of acid. You choose.

I am throwing the charm of foofoo on your heads so you both fall asunder into slumber chambers in the earth. There are poor rhyme schemes there, but the atmosphere is subtle, like chalk dust.

Everything is so sweet. Couples are falling in love everywhere I look.

Chimney Sweep said...

Romantic Comedy, you sound nice. I hope you are not insipid though. Please don't be.

Romantic Comedy said...

Listen Chimney, it ultimately isn't going to work out between anyone. So Don't worry. The insipid levels are kept to a minimum through dilapidation.

I am a changeling.

Tears in the Supermarket said...

I heard this Backstreet Boys song and I started to cry in front of the hot pockets. I am not kidding.

Bits and Pieces said...

Woe is you. That is fairly pathetic. The sun is shining where it isn't supposed to. Do you receive my meaning?

Ned said...

Tears are not for the supermarket. Stay home with your tears.

i am bored out of my mind at beige.

Mountain Man said...

I am sorry FB. When do you get to escape?

fairy butler said...

i have to suffer another half hour. i am ridiculously ahead with my work, so bored. i am thinking i will call in sick tomorrow. i can't take it.

Mountain Man said...

I just had a studio visit. Thank goodness the lass was friendly as my mouth hurts from the canks. Ick. I talk like I have a retainer.

fairy butler said...

much of the day was spent thinking, but now even that has gone. had horrible sandwich for lunch with some kind of sewer proscuitto. foul. i have to go and pick up some craft project supplies. i agreed to do this tote bag project/fundraiser for young curator person. why? why do i get myself into this stuff?

Mountain Man said...

Pretend you have canker sores like me. Call in sick. Definitely.

fairy butler said...

good to hear studio visit was a success! a different wizard/witch possiblity?

Mountain Man said...

I don't know. We're all dumb and generous like that until it comes time to do it then you want to kill yourself and them. Benefits kill me. Like where is the benefit for us?

fairy butler said...

i get a percentage of my sales on my creations. at least. i said i would do 5. am i insane?!

Mountain Man said...

Actually it was with a painter lass who was SO NICE and is curating a show that I am going to be in so it turns out that if you wait long enough stuff plops into your lap. The show opens in Dec. at 67 gallery. I am really happy to be in it. I will have a little painting in the show. 12 x 16 inches. Just a wee thing.

Mountain Man said...

It depends how fast you can crank them out. I am happy you will get a percentage. Will you let us know about this event?

fairy butler said...

excellent. i am a big fan of the stuff that plops effortlessly. it is pretty much the only way things happen for me. sad.

Mountain Man said...

Me too. I like plops from nowhere. Hurray for plops.
