Fine Arts unveils 'Yet Another Reality'
The Daily Campus
Tina Forbes
February 25, 2005


The "Yet Another Reality" portrait exhibition is currently on display in the Fine Arts Building from now until April 8. The gallery features work from eight contemporary artists, who paint and draw heads. According to its press release, "... this 'heady' exhibit isn't simply that all the artists make portraits. Rather, the connection rests in the artists' common interest in demonstrating the implied authority of the photographic portrait. They also reveal the genre's shortcomings." Upon entering the gallery, British artist Julian Opie's vinyl paintings are one of the first sights in the gallery, occupying the right wall. Opie uses a colorful and simplified style based on real individuals.

Across from Opie's paintings, Japanese artist Kumi Yamashita has several conte crayon portraits made from deliberately rubbing the subject's credit card numbers over and over to create a realistic and individualized face.

"Yamashita makes a sharp comment on our impersonal and commercial time," the artist bio information that accompanied her work stated. "I like the credit card (portraits) the best," Karen Marino, a 6th-semester communications design major said. "They're all amazing though."

Austrian artist Gottfriend Helnwein's large mixed media portrait of a little girl faces the gallery's entrance. The press release states, "Helnwein's images intend to evoke associations with mutilation, anguish or internal alienation... his paintings blatantly put forward images that border the line of social unacceptability and comment on the results of post Second World War society."

Russian artist Boris Zaborov had a couple old fashioned-looking acrylic and pencil portraits, noted by the posted artist's information as having a nostalgic mood. Lordan Bunch had some oil paintings exhibited that were based on photo-booth photographs from the 1920s and 1940s. Since the paintings were created from photographs rather than sitters, the facial expressions in a couple of them appeared more fleeting and animated. "By painting these portraits, Bunch is immortalizing lives depicted in small inconsequential photographs...illustrating their stories, contrived or not," artist's posted background information stated. "I like the photo-booth paintings... they were beautiful and realistic," Alexandra van den Berg, a 4th-semester art history major said.

Peruvian-born Belgian artist Till Freiwald had several gigantic watercolor portraits. "Freidwald's images carve out an intimate and meditative space to explore and feel the power of the human image," the artist's info stated.

Jenny Dubnau had a couple oil paintings. Her statement described how she'd create the paintings from photo shoots with close friends.

"I usually choose the image which is the most revealing: it is often also the image which renders the subject most vulnerable, both psychologically and physically," she said in her statement. Lastly, Chinese artist Yi Chen had some of his "Generation E Series" portraits, which were interesting and meaningful collages created from fashion advertisements. "I attempt to capture a new generation of modernized Asian urban/suburban dwellers who are caught up in the waves of globalization," Chen said in his statement.

¿tus convicciones son temporales o lo entendí mal?

el aborto es justificable de acuerdo a las circunstancias y a los circundantes; dado que no es en mi cuerpo donde hipotéticamente se afianzaría el feto no estaría totalmente en mis manos decidir si ese atisbo de vida se concreta en humano, pero no obligaría a la hipotética madre a que se deshaga del mismo, y si el feto no muestra un tipo de deformación que comprometa seriamente su salud o algo por el estilo la incitaría más bien a que lo tenga; no me casaría con alguien que no quiero sólo por un embarazo tampoco, pero lo que los demás piensen o dejen de pensar me tendría sin cuidado

Artist of the week

A master of Realism, Gottfried is one of the greatest living painter. His ability to reproduce reality on canvas is extraordinary and his work forces the audience to look at some of the things we try to avoid with indifference in everyday life. His art states a clear message and is not afraid to scream out loud "WAKE UP".

Riopelle au musée du Québec

Riopelle au musée du Québec

J'ai remarqué assez vite la collection des oeuvres de Riopelle en entrant dans le musée. Ces oeuvres immenses étaient étalées les unes après les autres. Toutes plus colorées les unes que les autres, on sait reconnaître la marque de Riopelle sur une toile. Cependant, je ne suis pas une fervente admiratrice de l'art abstrait et c'est une des caractéristiques principales de Riopelle. Je n'arrive pas à comprendre, après plusieurs années d'essais, comment quelqu'un peut s'extasier devant une toile bigarrée de tache. Qui a-il de s'y génial? Comment peut-on oser comparer ce genre de pratique avec des artistes comme Gottfried Helnwein, qui est peu connu au Québec malheureusement. Monsieur Henlwein arrive à faire des peintures immenses qui couvrent presque les murs de cathédrales autrichiennes à elles seules, et nul ne sait dire s'il s'agit de photographies ou peintures... Bref, il y a de tous les goûts dans la nature mais il y a aussi différents niveaux de talent. Riopelle est l'un de nos plus grands peintres au Québec, je le sais, mais je ne saurais dire pourquoi. Il y a peut-être matière a réflexion. Après plusieurs cours sur l'histoire de l'art, je connais assez bien le parcours artistique de Riopelle. Il a signé le Refus Global et ainsi donné de nouvelles directions à l'art. Il a ouvert des portes. Mais si les portes ouvertes donnent lieu à de telles oeuvres, peut-être aurait-il été préférable de les laisser fermées. Ces oeuvres sont très semblables entre elles. Il n'y a pas vraiment de recherche artistique ou de renouvellement dans son travail. Riopelle jette de la peinture sur une toile à grands coups de bras ou place tout simplement des pochoirs pour mettre par ci par là, quelques éléments figuratifs. Bof...

Café Alt Wien
de.wikipedia.org


Das Café Alt Wien gehört heute nicht zu den mondänen Wiener Caféhäusern sondern ist eher rauchig und düster und unter das Publikum mischen sich oft skurrile Gestalten. So fand 1976 im Café Alt Wien eine beachtete Aktion des Wiener Künstlers Gottfried Helnwein statt.

Gottfried Helnwein
Beautiful Children

Berauschend und bedrückend, begeisternd und irritierend – das sind die Bilder von Gottfried Helnwein, die das Wilhelm-Busch-Museum vom 13. März bis zum 12. Juni in seinen Räumen zeigt. Im Mittelpunkt der Ausstellung steht eine repräsentative Auswahl seines Schaffens. Von frühen Aquarellen bis hin zu großformatigen Digitaldrucken, die Kunst des Künstlers ist ein ständiges Ausprobieren, eine Mixtur der Techniken. „Die Technik hat mich in gewisser Weise nie interessiert, ist immer Mittel zum Zweck“, erklärt der Künstler selbst. Bilder, die glauben machen, dass es sich um ein Foto handelt, sind Ölgemälde. Andere Werke, die wie gemalt erscheinen, sind Fotografien. Der Effekt der Irritation ist vom Künstler gewollt. „Die Reaktion des Betrachters ist für mich Antwort auf meine Arbeit“, sagt Helnwein. „Die Wahl meiner Motive und Bildkompositionen ist rein intuitiv“, so der österreichische Fotorealist weiter. Dass er dabei viel Kritik übt und mit seinen Werken auch aufrütteln will, steht nicht in Frage.

Gezeigt werden knapp 60 großformatige Gemälde, Handzeichnungen und digitale Fotografien. Die meisten dieser Bilder waren bisher noch nicht in Deutschland ausgestellt. Sie wurden in Zusammenarbeit mit der Ludwig Galerie Schloss Oberhausen und dem Künstler ausgewählt, dessen Ausstellung The Child (Fine Arts Museum of San Francisco, 31.7-28.11.04) erst kürzlich vom San Francisco Chronicle zur besten Museumsausstellung des Jahres 2004 gewählt wurde.

Die Serie „Epiphany“, bei der sich Helnwein historischer Aufnahmen bedient und sie durch Hinzunahme von Kinderabbildern in einen neuen und interpretationswürdigen Kontext stellt, können verstörende Wirkung haben. Das Kind ist in Helnweins Arbeit seit jeher zentrales Thema. Modelle sind meist die eigenen Kinder oder Kinder von Freunden und befreundeten Künstlern. Gezeigt werden die Kinder nicht selten in schockierenden Zusammenhängen, gedemütigt, entstellt, als Ikonen der Leidensfähigkeit.

Wie kontrastreich Helnwein arbeitet, zeigt sich bei der Auswahl der Exponate. Zwei seiner aktuelleren Arbeiten sind raumgreifende Panoramabilder irischer Landschaften. Immer menschenleer und entvölkert bringt Helnwein seine direkte Umgebung auf die 5 x 1 m große Leinwand.

Der an der Wiener Akademie ausgebildete Maler bekennt, von der Rockmusik und Walt Disney mehr beeinflusst zu sein als von Mozart und Leonardo da Vinci. In den letzten Jahren hat sich zwischen ihm und dem amerikanischen Rockmusiker und Performancekünstler Marilyn Manson eine kongeniale Zusammenarbeit entwickelt: Die Ausstellung zeigt eine Reihe von Arbeiten, die zusammen mit Marilyn Manson entstanden sind.

Zur Ausstellung ist zum Preis von 24,50 Euro ein Begleitbuch „Gottfried Helnwein: Beautiful Children“ erschienen.

Celeb sightings, eh? Let's see.

A week ago last thursday night, down in the wharehouse art district near fourth street in LA, there was Ah-nuld, Sean Penn, with his pencil thin mustache and his hair long and conbed straight back, without Wynona Ryder,who is saying in a lot lately, Kevin Smith, Leo Di Capprio (sp) Beck, TV dudes, Danny and Chris Masterson, Marilyn Manson and Jason Lee, all at Jason Lee's loft for an art exhibition to kick off Jason Lee's Foundation for the arts, which seeks to support new artists. It was covered by the local reporters and photographers. That very small girl from A Knights Tale, I believe was there. Very pretty, long skirt long brown hair, I can't remeber her name.Others were there as well, but I am bad with faces and names, so that's all I remember. A ton of money was raised therough the sale of various paintings that night, all by one amazing artist. - Gottfried Helnwein. The art was spectacular. I drank a lot of water.

"Comic Release: Negotiating Identity for a New Generation"
Austin Chronicle
By: Wayne Alan Brenner
October 15, 2004

Jill, Tasty on the Floor, by Zak Smith

"Comic Release: Negotiating Identity for a New Generation"
Arthouse at the Jones Center, through Oct. 24

 

Here's the good news about "Comic Release: Negotiating Identity for a New Generation," the touring exhibit curated by Vicky A. Clark and Barbara Bloemink: It's well worth seeing. It's well worth seeing if you like to give your eyes a treat or you like to give your mind's teeth something complex to chew on or you appreciate the vernacular of comic books and graffiti or even if you don't.

If you're familiar with the surreal work of cartoonist Glen Baxter, say, then you might feel a slight tingle to be looking at a large original of his; if not, you may still be delighted by his The English have always adopted a relaxed attitude to sexual fulfillment at the end of one hall. If you fondly recall the Gottfried Helnwein self-portrait used as the cover of a Scorpions album, then you'll likely enjoy the Disney-dropping message of the artist's mixed media work American Prayer, and you'll probably even forgive the misspelling of his name on the nearby title card. After all, what evocation of comic-book history would be complete without a typo or two, and who's got time to read text, anyway, when there are such vibrantly graphic treasures as Michael Ray Charles' painting (Forever Free) Beware and the Reed Anderson/Daniel Davidson video "Macho Shogun" to enjoy looking at?

There's much to enjoy here, from the colorful mushroomy phantasms of Takashi Murakami to the sculptural collection of individually painted glass bottles by famed tagger Barry McGee, from the New Yorker-ish miniature portraits by Juliette Borda to Peregrine Honig's Gorey-tinted Awfulbet as rendered in ink and watercolor on 26 separate brown lunch bags. (You especially want to walk around to Arthouse's streetside display window, where Miguel Rodriguez's life-sized busts, Considering Informative Action, will give you a deeper appreciation of both superheroes and the potential of fired clay.)

A smattering of the pieces in "Comic Release" seem little more than images that are fun to look at, and there's nothing hella wrong with that. The few innocuous creations are a welcome balm, in fact, as much of this show works the sociopolitical plow for all it's worth, using the sharpness of popular comic-book icons and design methods to dig up fresh perspectives on gender, race, class, and all the rest of the ground our lives are necessarily seeded, if not ceded, in.

This exhibit's worth, I told you at the beginning, is the good news. The bad news is evident only in the wide world beyond the gallery, where the human race continues doing to itself and its surroundings the sort of things that fictional – whether visual or textual – tragedies and farces are created from. The only bad news is what some of the artists of "Comic Release" are expertly commenting on.

February 2003


A major theme in The Golden Age Of Grotesque was a hearkening back and drawing influences from various points in history, including the present, which were grotesque, decadent and debaucherous, as well as those which were deemed as such. One of these which is the most prominent, both in history as well as Manson's inspiration for The Golden Age Of Grotesque was the art and artists who were deemed as "degenerate" by the rising Nazi party in 1930's Germany. Though not always drawn from so explicitly, this has always been a major theme in Manson's art; the dichotomy and constant battle of expressionism and censorship. A theme which still exists in America today. Although art may not be banned today (at least not often successfully so), the suppression of progressive, new and innovative ideas in art and expressionism exists very much so. And if not by banning, by self-imposed societal standards as to what is "beautiful" and "ugly", something which can oft be just a dangerous and damning. A theme which Manson has always fought against.

In Europe, and specifically Germany, after World War I, the growing apathy of the youth and the increasing disillusionment towards the government after their betrayal unto them by being led into the most horrific war ever known to man up until the time, gave rise to the most progressive movements which the art world had ever seen. The youth which were filled with feelings of disillusionment and apathy, used this rage, their ennui, or boredom, to their advantage and begun such movements such as cubism, dada, surrealism and expressionism. Unlike how it's viewed and taught in schools today, art to them was something tangible, something that affected change, it was an escape, and for some a necessity in keeping sanity. Virtually the entire civilised world was in a state of disarray after World War I, and the art movements of this time reflected and expressed this global disposition. Art, with such incendiary movements such as dada, became ugly, became shocking; art was the artist's revenge against the world who had led him astray and beaten him down and its ugliness and harshness was the mirror that reflected the degradation of the society around him, it was the artist as the prolific and incendiary creation of the society he lived in.

But not everyone is able to find their salvation in art, nor did everyone appreciate the scathing and grotesque reality which was often depicted. And though the artist was able to portray society and save himself it did not however save the plebian aggregate masses, who needed a more literal and immediate solution. The world economy had compleatly deteriorated (as this was the time of The Great Depression), currency and money had become literally another form of toilet and wall paper. When the Nazi party came to power, through terror and blackmail namely, it was promised that all said problems would be alleviated and Germany would be restored to its great and empiric state, something which was also done. Though in the process, in restoring all which was purely and patriotically German, anything deemed un- Germanic or unglorifying to the fatherland was demonized, villified and ridiculed. Most familiar and recognizeable were the book burnings of works deemed un- Germanic and the mass persecution of the Jews. But along with these came the persecution of art and expressionism.

Shortly after coming to power and the Nazi's restoration of German patriotism came the persecution of art, entertainment and those who participated in them. Many and most of the progressive works of art were deemed "degenerate", confiscated and either sold, burned or set on display as a ridiculed spectacle in what came to be known as "degenerate Art" Museums. Works of artists such as Salvador Dali, Pablo Picasso, Paul Klee, Max Ernst, Edvard Munch and, two of the most notable of the era and to our purposes here, Otto Dix and George Grosz. The traveling "degenerate Art" museums were some of the greatest and most progressive art exhibitions which the world has ever seen or known, yet ridiculed and demonized in place of the praise they were deserved. Paintings were often auctioned off, vandalized or hung askew in mockery.

This is where the term LOW ART GLOOMINATI comes into play with Manson's lyrical poetry. LOW ART as a synonym for "Degenerate" Art, which is purposefully evoked as an empowerment to expressionism; by demonizing oneself beforehand, it leaves little rest for any one possessing critical and belittling eyes to condemn. Which is also in itself a belittlement towards this belittlement of progressive art; to empower it through its evocation. And 'GLOOMINATI' as a play on the words, the prefix gloom juxtaposed with Illuminati to insinuate Marilyn Manson as a dark, overly sinister misery spreading entity, which again is done so sarcastically as they bring nothing but joy to myself and anyone else who gets "it".

"....the LOW ART GLOOMINATI aimed to depress."


Manson in Rodent Blackface


"All the art we have done, has many levels, but in regards to Mickey...his image was also considered to be 'degenerate' by the fascist government in 1930's Germany. In America he represented so much more. These are pieces of the imagination, no more, no less."

Marilyn Manson
February 2003


The photo in the middle of The Golden Age Of Grotesque album booklet is Manson is made up in Black Face. Black face was a type of theatre makeup in the early Vaudville and American theatre where, before blacks were allowed to act, a white was made up with black face paint with a white ellipse around the mouth and occasionally white circles around his eyes. The principle involved is similar to men dressed in feminine guise in the Shakespearean days when women were not allowed to partake in theatre acting. And the same in traditional Japanese theatre today.

The fact that Manson is dressed in Black Face is representative further of his art being deemed as "degenerate" by judgemental society, just as black culture was deemed as "degenerate" and forced into dimminuative servitude throughout American history, yet also embraced by white culture simultaneously. Just as today when 70% of the consumers of rap music, a phenonenom from the streets of black culture, are from young middle class whites. The dichotomy of fascination and demonization.

Also hearkening back to Manson stating that, "I will be called 'degenerate,' but I will not allow my art to be labeled as such!" This "degeneracy" is not a literal one, just as the art in the "Entartete" K?nst, "Degenerate" Art exhibitions of Nazi Germany were in context and reality anything but degenerate. They were some of the greatest and most progressive works of art ever on display but villified and belittled as "degenerate" because that's what those who were in power ingrained this fascist morality and standard of beauty unto society. Just as Manson has fought against the today self imposed "The Fascism Of Beauty" which society willingly imposes upon itself. Manson gazing into a mirror, mockingly and uncaringly of of society's fascist standards, admiring his own "degenerate" beauty.


"Before the Civil War, and before slavery was abolished, there was a form of entertainment called minstrel shows. These minstrel shows started in 1828 and were popular from 1841-1870. The white performers would cover their faces with burnt cork. This style of make-up was called black-face make-up. The performers would then go on stage and mimic the "down on the farm" lifestyle of the slaves on the southern plantations. This was done through music, song, dance, and acting. Although this type of show today would be considered racially degrading, in the mid-1800's it was popular with the white audience of the time. After the civil war these minstrel shows lost their popularity. But some of the minstrel acts moved onto the vaudeville stage, bringing their black-face make-up with them. These performances in vaudeville led to African-Americans themselves putting on black-face make-up and creating vaudeville routines. Initially African-American performers put on black-face so that they would be accepted by the audience, since the mostly white audience had never seen African-American entertainers.

Topsy & Eva, a vaudevillian musical-comedy play by the Duncan Sisters, a retelling of Uncle Tom's Cabin
with the central focus on the novel's inversed pair of children, Topsy and Eva, instead of Uncle Tom.

"Very few, if any, of the thousands who brought Uncle Tom's Cabin to the stage did so to promote Stowe's message. When the Duncans discovered the possibilities of using the novel to expand their own career, surely they had neither the proper role for Christians nor the horrors of slavery in mind. The stories they told about how they became Topsy and Eva are all tempered by the fact that they appeared in response to press interviews. The most broadly distributed version appeared in The American Magazine in August, 1925. The sisters were established vaudeville stars by that time. 'A little more than two years ago,' Rosetta told an interviewer, 'a man came to us to see about doing something in motion pictures.' After several ideas were broached and dismissed, 'finally he said . . . "I guess we'll have to black you up."'"... UTC & Slavery

Manson playing the saxophone for the Grotesk Burlesk
evocative of the "Nigger-Kike," "Degenerate" Musik of the 1930's


Along with works of art and literature that were banned, confiscated or burned, the Nazi intrusion in German life also extended to music and entertainment. Both swing and jazz were banned, demonized as "degenerate", labeled as "Nigger-Kike" music. Nightclubs and record stores were raided to smash the perpetuation of them and the dissuade interest through fear and terror. Similarly, forms of theatre such as Cabaret and Vaudeville were also deemed as such, with night clubs and theatres who housed such performances either raided or shut down. The term "Swing Heil" Manson sung in Doll-Dagga Buzz-Buzz Ziggety-Zag was a matra coined during this time period, as a mockery toward the Nazi "Sieg Heil" which sought to smash and efface them. Two films which portray this quite well are Swing Kids and Cabaret, more of which can be read about in The CELLULOID section.

Again, a the theme of the war between expressionism and censorship which has always been integral to Manson's art. And much of the imagery Manson portrayed within The Golden Age Of Grotesque is evocative of this very time period. With these particular examples Manson identifying with the persecuted, which Manson is no stranger to from religion and entertainment. Along with Blackface, Manson playing the saxophone on The Golden Age Of Grotesque and live in the Grotesk Burlesk is another facet which is evocative of those forms of entertainment which were deemed "degenerate". The saxophone being an instrument synonymous with Jazz music makes this a befitting reference.

Exhibition catalogue for "Entartete Musik" exhibtion. The "Nigger-Kike" Star of David is seen pinned upon the black Jazz performer. Propaganda which coincided directly with the "Entartete K?nst" villification in mid to late 1930's Germany by the Nazi Party.

"Some Jazz 1919, Music by S.J Stucco.A very interesting cover for this instrumental Fox Trot. It appears to be a two person vaudeville act with the African American performers in black face. This was not unusual. At the time, there were very few Black performers on the White vaudeville (Keith) circuit, most were required to perform in black face." ....Jass.com

DITA VON TEESE

interview by Wayne Chinsang

W: As I said, you've been the model for artists like Chas Krider, Gottfried Helnwein, and Olivia. Also, you've obviously performed with Marilyn as well. Is having your art form bleed over into other people's art an important part of what you do? Do you strive to collaborate with other artists?

D: I feel most honored to not only have met these artists and seen firsthand how they work, but being a subject of theirs is amazing. I don't impose on them to work with me. If they see something in me they want to do with me, I let them do as they will. I spend so much time imagining and creating my own photographs and shows, that it's nice to let it all go and let them take over and see what happens.

OH, YOU MAY NOT ADMIT IN FRONT OF YOUR MOTHER OR WIFE THAT YOU KNOW WHO DITA VON TEESE IS, BUT YOU DO. SO DOES WAYNE CHINSANG. AND HE'S NOT AFRAID TO ADMIT IT TO ANYONE.

"Dita" da artista

Marilyn Manson e Dita Von TeeseNon sarà stato il matrimonio dell'anno, ma certamente quello celebrato giorno 3 tra il reverendo del rock Marilyn Manson e l'ex coniglietta di Playboy Dita Von Teese si può annoverare tra i più particolari, visti i protagonisti in gioco... Luogo dell'evento: castello irlandese di proprietà dell'artista austriaco Gottfried Helnwein. Abbigliamento richiesto agli invitati: rigorosamente ottocentesco. Durata dei festeggiamenti: quattro giorni (secondo la tradizione irlandese).

FRÜHSTÜCK BEI HELNWEIN
Posted by ju* in Seitenweise, Bilderladen

Momentan fühle ich mich netzübersättigt. Wenn ich via Internet zuviele bisweilen vielleicht lustige, aber dennoch sinnlose Informationen aus fremden Leben aufnehme, sitze ich plötzlich vor dem Rechner und fühle, wie mein Inneres sich in zäh umherschwappenden Schleim verwandelt. Keine Knochen, kein Gehirn, nur Geschleime. Das ist mir natürlich unrecht.

Dennoch kam ich gerade via einiger Umleitungen zum "Federboasimulant" welcher mich milde winkend an Gottfried Helnwein weiterreichte.

Und plötzlich war ich 12 und saß frühstückend in W.s Esszimmer. Da nämlich klemmte Helnweins “Self-Portrait 29? am völlig mit Schallplatten und Büchern überfüllten Schrank und ärgerte mich, weil ich, den Mund voll Kaffee und Honigsemmel, unentwegt hinstarren musste und “Wah, wäh, Gabelaugen!” denken. Ich habe diesen Umstand all die Frühstücksjahre hindurch geschickt verborgen. Helnwein jedoch hat meine dunkle Faszination sehr wohl gespürt und mich immer wieder einmal auf verschiedenen Wegen kontaktiert, immer zur richtigen Zeit, immer passgenau. Gerade wieder, also: passgenau. Ich bin fasziniert, die Bilder laufen in meinen Kopf, als hätte ich eine Direktverbindung, ich muss nichts erklärt bekommen, ich bilde mir ein, die Intention zu verstehen, den Spaß, die Dunkelheit. Wahrscheinlich kommen viele der Bilder nur einem latenten Gefühl entgegen, das, wenn ich nicht gerade schleimgefüllt am Rechner sitze, in mir summt wie ein kaputtes Kabel.

Did you know? DID YOU KNOW?

It was done not with razors or slingblades, but with serrated saw teeth in the stall of a teenage hell. It was done not in a single nor double motion, but hundreds; each sliding over an open wound at speeds reaching barely that of coagulation. It was done not with a tear in the eye or with a frown in the heart, but in blissful agony. It was done not for an end result, at least not entirely, but for the feeling of being alive enough to hurt. It was done slowly. It was done deliberately. It was done with you in my eye.

There was liberation in those strokes. There was excitement in the unknown. There was a sense of control and a dictation of self realization in each drop. There was motivation that couldn’t be understood or even explained, and that was power in the first degree.

But that time has long since past, and now the only thing left lies semi-transparent behind ink and scar tissue; forever my mark of secret remembrance. Granted there are times when it throbs to have companions of perpendicular proportions, but that requires the death and dissection of a love struck Mr. Gosh. As ready as we may be, he still has his reservations.

Did you know? No, you didn’t. Would you care? No, you wouldn’t.

El sexo, el alcohol, la sangre.

Tres momentos dionisíacos de la vida humana:
no hay escapatoria, o uno u otro...

Cesare Pavese

Esas tres ventanas de la experiencia humana, el sexo, el alcohol y la sangre, son de lo más delicioso que nos pudo haber sucedido. No obstante al mismo tiempo son monstruos que si no se manejan con cuidado pueden causar las más grandes atrocidades. Y ya pensandolo con más calma, no sé pero me da la impresión de están profundamente ligados a nivel químico: la temperatura se eleva con el alcohol corriendo en las venas, mezclandose con la sangre, los cuerpos se desean, se juntan. Y si la temperatura se eleva demasiado la sangre su derrama con todo y alcohol por la pasión exacerbada del sexo. Una verdadera trinidad multiforme

Hola, me gustó la foto de Helnwein está enigmática, como que habla de que los cuerpos oscuros y distantes están cargados de dones dionisiacos: lo dionisiaco no sólo es la embriaguez, sino hay que verla desde la superficie apolinea, lo dionisicao subyace a las formas estetizantes, quizá de ahí los ojos luminosos de la oscura figura...

Hamletmaschine said...

AZUL: Pues sí, "conócete a ti mismo" sigue siendo una premisa tan válida y presente como el día en que se vislumbró por primera vez... digamos que explorar esas profundidades es encontrar nuestros propios límites... el problema se presenta cuando se descubre que no se tienen límites, que nunca se llega a tocar fondo, salvo con la propia vida de por medio... la fortaleza está en la reflexión entonces, en cómo destilar belleza también de nuestros instantes de debilidad y de vicio... Besos y abrazos a ti también.


ENIGMA: La trampa del hedonismo es el hastío, acompañada de poder absoluto la búsqueda de placer siempre es destructiva y vejatoria. Es fácil olvidar que se está vivo cuando se experimentan los placeres, el mundo deja de ser, la conciencia de altera... es fácil perderse en su laberinto... también se doma a los sentidos.


HIPSTER: Las puertas de la percepción son químicas, tal y como le aseveraba Huxley y lo experimentaba en carne viva Henri Michaux. Creo que esta trinidad, como todas las trinidades, son en realidad facetas de una misma cosa, una misma experiencia que, al no poder describirla en su totalidad, se fragmenta en mil pedazos... en los Misterios, a esto se le llama "El vuelo de Orfeo".


SANDRA BECERRIL: Hola!!! Qué gusto verte por aquí! Pues sí, faltaron muchos, yo dirá... de los más sublimes a los más infernales, el potencial del cenobita, jajaja... igual te mando un abrazo todo tuyo...


NOEMI: Afortunadamente todo salió bien, eso es invaluable, un abrazo muy solidario....


LESLIE: Hasta el exceso de vitalidad es medio nocivo a veces, jaja... pues yo también me preguntaba dónde andabas, y por supuesto se te echaba de menos... y sí, para variar también el gozo debe ser dominado y entrenado... Abrazos a ti también, nos seguimos leyendo...

: )


NUESTRA SEÑORA DEL CAOS: No olvides las Furias... creo que esa última Trinidad, la que incluye los giroscopios, es la más dionisíaca de todas. Feliz embriaguez!

Delirio, Muerte y Deseo son para ir a una fiesta de inmortales, en casa de Isis de preferencia... la última fiesta de todas, por cierto.

Un abrazo del caos debe transformar a los hombres en seres errantes y desprotegidos, lo acepto sabiendo que eso no cambia nada, le envio un saludo desde este lado de la catedral...


NAXOS: Oh sí, Helnwein es genial genial genial, él y Derek Jarman son mi principales inspiraciones visuales en las pocas veces que he podido planear una obra o incluso los cortometrajes en los que estoy ahora involucrado... es la proyección de una mirada iluminada, una figura que se mantiene alerta aún en sus excesos. Hay reflexión en esos ojos de luz, pero no iluminan, oscurecen, también en busca de la verdad...

JEAN GEORGES: Gran comentario, paladeando se disfruta casi cualquier cosa, desde un encuentro entre amigos, hasta la más amarga separación entre amantes, desde un vuelo transatlántico, hasta la más abismal caída al infierno... genial.


SEÑOR K: Es lo que yo digo también, si el riesgo no es igual o mayor a la apuesta, el juego no vale la pena... pero hay que tener cuidado para vivir y después contarlo... saludos!


PIKGU: Qué gusto verte por aquí, pues sí, Pavese hubiera sido un excelente blogger, no me cabe la menor duda, brillante autor. Y gracias por tus palabras, es un gran aliento... abrazos...


ERDRICK GOUNIER: Debilidad es cuando se es timorato y no se pierde uno mismo... para volver a encontrarse, hay que llegar al fondo de las emociones, aunque también hay que saber llegar ahí, nada fácil de explorar estos abismos. Besos y abrazos a la chica roja...


PLÁSTICA: Pues en cierta forma lo somos, con traje y corbata o con una pijama, pero en el fondo podemos estar en plena orgía... emh, no tienes blog? Saludos y gracias por tu visita.


SILENCIO: Gracias por ese dato que me envió... el amor está detrás de todo, incluyendo la inocencia y la corrupción, el desastre seduce... y bien orquestada, la locura seduce también... saludos!


BLUE SADE: Mejor tríos, como los tres tristes tigres o los tres ratones ciegos... en el Apocalipsis se comenta que lo que ahí se describe será vivido durante la tercera parte de la noche... que pasará en las otras dos terceras partes? Cada quien puede dar su versión, jaja...

Libertad es el derecho que todo hombre tiene a ser honrado, y a pensar y a hablar sin hipocresía. En América no se podía ser honrado, ni pensar, ni hablar.

Un hombre que obedece a un mal gobierno, sin trabajar para que el gobierno sea bueno, no es un hombre honrado. Un hombre que se conforma con obedecer a leyes injustas, y permite que pisen al país en que nació lo hombres que se lo maltratan, no es un hombre honrado....Hay hombres que son peores que las bestias, porque las bestias necesitan ser libres para vivir dichosas: el elefante no quiere tener hijos cuando vive preso: la llama del Perú se echa en la tierra y se muere, cuando el indio le habla con rudeza, o le pone más carga que la que puede soportar. El hombre debe ser, por lo menos, tan decoroso como el elefante y como la llama.
