For all of my Design-Obsessed Peeps -- Weekend Treat/CONTEMPORARY ART

Peeps,

Nothing compares to the luxury of sleeping undisturbed save for the lucid dreams of sailing through falling rains towards open seas, or flying weightlessly over ancient cities of fog-obscured piazzas and towering gold-tipped spires.  For between dusk and dawn, the realm of endless possibilities and infinite probabilities becomes reality; Everyman and super-hero intertwine and coexist, and the absence of a totem precludes that jarring dissolution much favored by Dom Cobb.  Inception to the sound of endless waves, the taste of salty kisses, and the fecund smell of a new eternity seems a construct most appealing to my receptive mind. 

Upon my return this morning, I had the opportunity to examine the contents of an art portfolio holding papers and prints destined for the frame-shop.  A surprise came in rediscovering several drawings by artist Tim Beard.  The works were riveting, lyrical, and entirely relevant.  A close friend, upon viewing them, gasped that, “they are so beautiful.”  I heartily agreed and forwarded one such gem for your enjoyment. 

A review by Fausto Lorenzi reads, ‘Beard is without a doubt interesting in his reaction to the depersonalization and lack of expressiveness that dominated the American Art scene.  Since Warhol, a culture of mere symbols has developed; the mundane elevated to become aesthetic myth.  Beard instead traces a map of individual stories; tribal signs, like ghostly footprints, sometimes menacing and disconcerting, have their presence rooted in magical symbolism.’

Sincerely,
Shane


PS:  Hope that you are enjoying the summer.
