RUBY TUESDAY - VIRGINIA WOOLF SAW THE POTENTIAL OF 'CINEMA' IN HER ESSAY OF 1926 .....

    THAT WHICH WE HAVE SEEN DEVELOPING TO THIS DAY.   SHE SAW BEYOND TODAY WHAT IT MIGHT BECOME - MORE A COMPOSITION OF MOVEMENTS AND ABSTRACTIONS,  AND WHEN SOME NEW SYMBOL FOR EXPRESSING THOUGHT AND FEELING IS FOUND, THE FILMMAKER HAS ENORMOUS RICHES TO COMMAND.  WE HAVE ALREADY SEEN IT IN PAINTING.  AND IN PHOTOGRAPHY -

    FOR RUBY TUESDAY, THESE DIGITAL 'PAINTINGS' ARE REFLECTIONS SEEN IN MOTOR CARS...RECENTLY -








THESE SHOTS REMINDED ME OF WOOLF'S ESSAY, WHICH CAN BE READ IN FULL At WOOLF ON LINE HERE.

EXPERIMENTAL FILMMAKERS HAVE BEEN DISCOVERING THE POTENTIAL OF ABSTRACTION SINCE THE 1970s - ARTIST, BARBARA HAMMER, IS ONE FILMMAKER WHO IS AT THIS TIME BEING RECOGNIZED BY MoMA'S FILM DEPARTMENT - From September 15-October 13 -  A RETROSPECTIVE  - IN WHICH HER NEWEST FILM SHOWN,
'GENERATIONS',  SEEMS TO REFLECT SOMETHING OF WOOLF'S VISION FOR CINEMA.
'GENERATIONS' was made in collaboration with Gina Carducci.  Both used the Bolex camera to capture the final days of Coney Island's Astroland Amusement park.

  1. This is neat. I admit I don't often understand modern art but I do find it appealing. :)

  2. Abstract painting has always mystified me, unless it's been pure pattern, which I can appreciate, because it's always seemed to me that 'anything goes'! In other words 'paint anything, call it anything' and it's art! (The words of a complete ignoramus!) But your concept of bringing the abstract into being from the concrete is fantastic. Not only can I appreciate the very real visual worth, but I can feel 'grounded' in reality. I think this is the way forward for you and I honestly do look forward to more of the same. Congratulations. (I particularly like number one.)
