Totem In Yellow - 2012
This piece started with this source ARK, (appropriated Random Kitsch.) Then two different parts were captured, manipulated in Photoshop and finally one selection was manipulated in Photo FX Pro.
This piece is not very attractive, on one hand; and, yet, for me, it has this sci-fi feel, that I am intrigued by, on the other hand. It’s programmatic. I’m wondering if this piece might be a good candidate for the giclee “scale-up.”
ARK of course is appropriated random kitsch. My visual experiments are archived here.
New additions to the archive. . .of my visual experiments; aka my naive art.
Note–to scroll through the archive, the link is in the lower left, as in:
More visual experimentation has been plugged in, where the light shines, My Naive Art blog, ummm, a “sub-section” of this blog, in the menu above. To navigate through the gallery, once there lower left button, Older Entries , and tap it to wind your way back along my visual trail, such as it is!
In the never ending task I have set for myself, to post my original visual, art-like, and, art, experiments, some more have hit mynaiveart blog. Demanded at that site is, beyond forbearance, the ability to punch the [older entries] link to track back through the previous postings.
A little lower are the tags, and the tags that indicate the year provide the easiest way to look at the experiments in the order of the year they were produced. That order, incidentally, has nothing to do with the order I post pieces because I’m still only about 80% through the entire opus of experiments.

To begin depriving death of its greatest advantage over us, let us adopt a way clean contrary to that common one; let us deprive death of its strangeness, let us frequent it, let us get used to it; let us have nothing more often in mind than death… We do not know where death awaits us: so let us wait for it everywhere.
To practice death is to practice freedom. A man who has learned how to die has unlearned how to be a slave. — Michel de Montaigne
