DelARTe: Still Green and Ethical, and as always: "pro bono, contra malum!"
New in: MMXVI
Still @ it, DelARTe 2016 (MMXVI)
A new America may be upon us, are you ready? Will Wally vote?
Aus dem Museum (fuer Ungewollte Kunst) <=> From the Museum of Unwanted Art
Could be the Museum for Unintended Art
by poking the magenta rabbit.
Do the rabbit, Alice did!
We must sail the ocean blue,
and our saucy ship's a beauty.....
Or: Prelude to Hunting of the Snark
If one is to believe our astronomers there might be a black hole in the middle of our bubble;
imagine an image of an ancient black hole that may or may not be there anymore,
making a "chirp" sound derived from the speed of gravity (whatwever that might be)
by way of an interference gravitometer. It doesn't get better than that!
Here is one derived from the
corona on Jupiter:
calls for a more down to earth
Or just unwrap the image. Beware though: To unwrap it is to change it.
Mr. Schroedinger where are you when you're needed? Or was this just another wrap? Mr.DeMill.
Speaking of illusions brings us to Translation, which seems to work only with the simplest of texts.
Truth be told: There is no such thing as a translation. There is merely interpretation,
hopefully done in the sense that the author had intended. This realization makes
a thurow understanding of a text a precondition, which is usually not a given
( German <=> English services are available on request )
By Heinrich von Kleist in
1810 & still
"Über das Marionettentheater” <=> "On the Marionette Theatre",

The red shoe still rocks!
Run and chew, but better not run in high heels,
especially not in
In the news lately: The red-shoe story is no longer fiction,
nor is the shoe a prototype, it is now a product.
The only difference: Bluetooth
connectivity instead of USB cable.
Here are the five initial chapters of the red shoe story:
Chapter 1 Chapter 2 Chapter 3 Chapter 4 Chapter 5 .
Inspirational art activities:
Just to remind you!
Getting it out of your chair and into view at a gallery has its own rewards.
The art you engage with is a reflection of your self.
You are in communication with the artist
even though what you are thinking is not
necessarily what the artist was thinking,
but therein lies intellectual groth and progress.
Otherwise you'd be just looking at wall paper.
Color and presentation play a major role.
Tough demands on the chromatose.
Definition of "chromatose":
Those who are esthetically challanged
having no sense for color combination and presentation.
(Remember: You heared the term here first)
Another bubble is bursting, are you prepared?
Trust nature to provide color reference.
Presentation, e.g. framing, will help you blend your art into your environment.
So, when you buy art expect to purchase appropriate framing as well.
The simplest images can be enhanced with lush presentation.
Enough, the point is made.
Drawings are getting rarer, as art shifts to computer art.
Wether the drawing is done in graphite or drawn with light.
In Prismacolor or drawn with Spagetti
White on black or black on white
Or black on white, white on black, or chalk and color.
Drawing up to the plate, e.g. voting,
will make a vast difference at the galleries!
Things are in a mess. We all know it.
So, make a sensible move for heavens sake
( You see, the white king moves next,
or will it be a queen?).
Back to the more mondane aspects of art:
The muse, the model.
Matisse and Kokoschka used a stuffed manequin.
Personally I prefer a real Model. So, don't be shy
you might hang in a museum some day as part of art history.
Contact me, you too can make a difference in art history.
Click or poke on a red shoe in the picture above
and see what's happening in the studio and
how you might become an ikon of art history.
Got to run and chew, you know!
Soon Sister Wendy will be linked again.
And thus the empire was forged.
