Embarrassment

The occupants of this lift, are pretending not to see the person in a wheelchair three feet before them and the prominent sign that advises them that they should give priority to wheelchair users.

This is by no means unusual.

Kitsch

 

Pictures that deal with matters of taste and decorum, and as always that big question, “What is Art?”

Five Years Ago

2 September 2011

 

The Thames estuary is where conflicting weather systems frequently meet and produce, foreboding, but also sublime cloud formations. These photographs were taken on one fifteen minute car journey from the supermarket to our home, along the sea front of  Southend upon Sea, where humanity also meets and clashes in other British day-tripping ways,

The Elements Which Dwarf The Elephants

#leighonsea #turner #photography

Joseph Mallord William Turner, RA, has a connection with two Leighs:  Mike Leigh's acclaimed bio film, "Mr. Turner," and the sky above Leigh-on-Sea and the estuary which influenced Turner and which is much photographed by Mrs. Monk.

Her task is never complete because it never ceases to shift as the clashing weather systems do their magic unpredictably so, and every single day.

Meanwhile, we are always aware of the pitfalls. One man’s "sublime" is another’s cliché.

abstract

Abstract art is non representational art. Abstract photography is photography pointed at the real world but not intentionally representing the real world. There are other definitions of abstract art, but these photographs are intended to satisfy this criteria. Photographs of "abstract" paintings or other medium do not qualify to appear in this set. This kind of photography is a hard sell these days, because photography is a medium with potential to show a great deal very badly and abstract art intends to show very little very well. Nevertheless the rules will be broken from time to time.

Ai Weiwei

The show that made us renew our subscription with  the Royal Academy. They lost our patronage when they went crazy with the pricing and now they have seen the error of their ways. Our small protest is not exactly on the scale of sacrifice made by Ai Weiwei.
