You Never Never Listen Land

This is a response to old trope strongholds that have worn out their welcome.

Here's digital the process in sequence:  

A Whole New World

The world has once again grown wearisome, dreadfully dull, insane, illogical in the worst way possible, dehumanizing, cutthroat, & lamentable. It’s tiresome and over.

So, I’ll envision an entirely new world: part Alice in Wonderland, part Hieronymus Bosch, part Dali, part Miro—

 

It will be phantasmagorical—fantastical, a visual masterpiece, colorful beyond the human visual spectrum, lush, opulent, ridiculous, illogical in the best way possible, no limitations to creativity, a paradiso, an egalitarian utopia, every step taken makes yet another symphonic note in its everlasting opus.

 

Some inhabitants include or rather a Mad Tea Party will ensue with the following residents (in no particular order and subject to change):

 

Einstein, Beethoven, Dali (of course), Hoch, Mitchell, Fine, Tanning, Huxley (perhaps), Miro, Lennon and Ringo, Rumi, Hafiz, Carroll, Robin Williams, Prince (definitely Prince), Cohen, Cave and Ellis, Bosch, Kahlo, Carrington, Amos, Hepburn, Bradbury, Pop (of the Iggy variety), Reed, Sacks, Ernst, Riopelle, de Kooning, Martin, O’Keefe, Kusama, Klee, Kandinsky, Sage, Beauvoir, Sartre (maybe-maybe not he may be too much of a downer), Murakami and Murakami, Falcor, Ono, Wilde, Chagall, Rachmaninoff, Lear, Goethe, da Vinci, Millay, PegasusMarquez, Michelangelo, Mose VinsonVan Gough, Dahl (perhaps), Hesse, Dr. Seuss, Sendak, Rilke, Bowie, Betty White, Poehler, Melissa McCarthy,  Lauper, Kate Mckinnon, Chanel, Rothko, Jay de Feo, Redon, Holiday, Simone, Leadbelly, Harlow, Harvey, Captain Beefheart, Diana Ross (potentially Bob Ross too), Waters, Cummings, Auden, YSL, McQueen (Alexander so there’s no confusion), Idle, Gould and the rest TBD.

 

This new world teams with pandas, narwhals, elephants, foxes, hummingbirds, hawks, blue jays, crows, bees, whales of all variety really except killer whales (because they fucking suck and nothing that sucks is permitted), fox gloves, oak trees, orchids, really damn near everything in the Amazon because it’s majestic, all the majestic things.

 

It will never get over 75 degrees.  

 

You can eat or drink whatever you want without ill side effects.

 

There will be no children in the procreative sense.  However, at any given time residents may choose and have access to themselves at any age.  It will be quite common to see a 5 year old Kit hanging with a 5 year old Dali, Einstein, Kahlo, etc or an 11 yr old Kit with an 11 yr old Wilde, Auden, Harlow, etc.

 

The residents are all QUEENS. And we can move forward and backwards, sideways, “upside down /inside out/ round and round--” through time, space, dimension and theoretical realms yet undiscovered.

 

There is no death only rebirth. And the only law governing us all is LOVE.

How a PJ Harvey Concert Morphs into a Trippy Lisa-Frankesque Rainbow Cloud

Hi folks. Here's a behind the scenes look at one of my digital-photomontage mini "fugues." Each sequential photo (seen below) represents another phase of the photo editing/manipulating process before reaching a final result. Most of the time one of these sessions can last anywhere on average from 1-4 hours (sometimes longer) depending on the creative flow.  In many ways this process is related to analog painting: shifting perspective, applying new layers of color, adding and subtracting elements, using various tools, etc. All of the images you'll find under the digital photomontage tab on this site are created in this manner. It's also why the original image is included in the series. A fun fact about this process: many times these sessions can produce up to 100s of images. Some of which are obviously slough offs and some of which veer on their own path of becoming entirely new works of art themselves. Therein lies the wonder of creative play. Maybe a future post will feature the slough-offs. Until then happy arting.
