fast snail expressionism

Fine art moves quickly

Nothing to say but the humorous tradition of raising the basic philosophical questions that touch upon our grassroot art. The reality of interesting art remains invisible. That much is clear.

Plotter and exhibitions. Colour and gesture are irrevocably entwined in the paintings.

road doesn't lead anywhere

Walking on two legs ensures that our upper limbs are almost always available to help us communicate, and recent studies have shown that our body postures and hand gestures are as informative about our internal state as our facial expressions.

Fast snails must identify current knowledge gaps.

Consider roads. Journey, quest, self-knowledge. But what if the road doesn-'t lead anywhere ? Even more bizarre.

Pleasures of life in the slow lane stretches the truth

Why do snails do with art drawing paper ?

People used to see slowing down as a snail idea - there's nothing you can do about it. Snails who pushed art boundaries, each time making abundantly evident that the slow art form is alive and well. Fine art is hard to move quickly. Fast snails break with the conception of art as mimesis of nature.

Very little is needed to make a happy life; it is all within yourself; in your way of thinking. Marcus Aurelius

To direct resources to important questions, funders must identify current knowledge gaps. Art snails enjoy only the appearance of reality. That experience taught me the importance of doing work you enjoy (or, at the bare minimum, don't hate).

The two snails are shown together, where they are warmly regarded as being particularly fragile human bodies. Irony doesn't work for everyone.

hodmandod psychological entropy

Psychological entropy for snails, take it easy.

Energy and entropy likewise mental states, or cause and effect aren't basic things. They're ways of talking about things. (Sean Carroll)

"Surrealism is weirdness psychologized and academicized."

Hilland Cotter

Painting after postmodernism

Through much of his life, Roth was restlessly peripatetic, moving between studios in many cities.

Throughout his career, the artist continually circled back to earlier ideas and processes, reinterpreting and transforming works so that linearity and closure are consistently defied. Transience and order, destruction and creativity, playful humor and critical inquiry, the abject and the beautiful, all maintain a consistent balance throughout his work.
