The Prodigal Son Returns - This is not a painting or mural. It is stains on a concrete wall that I enhanced to convey my vision.

"there is a place in the heart that
will never be filled

a space

and even during the
best moments
and
the greatest times
times

we will know it

we will know it
more than
ever

there is a place in the heart that
will never be filled
and

we will wait
and
wait

in that space." Charles Bukowski

Wednesday, 8/22 at 6pm // Going Extinct is a darkly fantastical, natural history exhibition about intergalactic, humanoid creatures from the bottom of the sea that are about to become extinct.

The installation attempts to employ some of the typical elements of museum displays, such as detailed descriptive labels and carefully placed arrangements, but seeks to undermine their authority. The exhibit brings in some of the wonder and mystery of curiosity cabinets—precursors of museums—while unfolding an allegory of colonization that is critical of systems of classification and the hierarchies of injustice they enforce. The installation includes an excess of trash artifacts from the imagined civilization—all of which have been modified, made, or recycled by nadahada–as well as a live diorama of “two of the last remaining creature specimens,” housed in a circus tent.

While the exhibition stands on its own, it is meant to be experienced as a guided tour. The Sumerian goddess Ishtar acts as docent and spirit guide, taking visitors on a journey through the seven gates of the underworld, each of which is a separate section of the exhibition. Meanwhile, the guard tries, but fails, to keep order in the gallery. Upon entering the underworld, the creatures perform a “non-reproductive mating dance” ritual for viewers, a kind of multispecies drag striptease, in which the stripped garments become animated puppetry throughout the dance.

Everything shows us where we are. Solgave will not only use rope elements, but tactical real world skill building to forge and strengthen teams, at risk youth, relationships, and classes of students. The vision is VERY clear in my mind and this end goal, while 2-3 years out...everything I do is leading to it. Every part of our day better be preparing us for our dreams. 52 week YouTube transformation project under way. I simply don’t have time to edit and upload yet.

Engraving (with etching) by an unidentified artist after Crispijn de Passe the Elder’s, “Lady and a gentleman seated in a garden”, c1599–1617 (continued)
🐕
Before offering an explanation of what is signified by this emblem print I should mention that such prints were not designed to be read as simple illustrations for the subject matter addressed in the text. Instead, they are illustrations layered with symbolism intended to delight the highly educated folk of the time—those in the “know”—in decoding esoteric meanings.
🐕
Regarding the illustrations to “Nieuwen ieucht spieghel” (New Mirror for Youth) (1617) in which this print features, the addressed subject matter and projected meanings are tailored to appeal to a youthful audience as exemplified by the subject of this print: love.
🐕
From my reading of the image and the Latin verses inscribed beneath it (and I may be completely wrong in my interpretation), the portrayed lovers sitting snugly together are dealing with the question haunting all lovers: how to manage their lives metaphorically smudged together. The chap’s world is all about his two hunting dogs and the hunting of deer as shown in the distance behind him. By contrast, his lady-love’s world is all about the falcon that she holds and the falconry hunting of other birds as shown in the distance behind her. Happily, the lovers’ two different worlds of hunting appear to be resolved with a merging of interests as the distant hunting scene behind the women reveals a male and female couple on the same horse (poor horse!) enjoying the experience of hunting together.

Unidentified artist after Crispijn de Passe the Elder (aka Crispin Van de Passe; Crispin De Passe) (1564–1637)
🐕
“Lady and a gentleman seated in a garden”, c1599–1617, illustration composed originally to “Hortus Voluptatum” (Garden of Love) by De Passe (see the copy of De Passe’s print held by the British Museum: http://www.britishmuseum.org/research/collection_online/collection_object_details/collection_image_gallery.aspx?assetId=126377001&objectId=1560278&partId=1), but this variant copy after De Passe, showing greater regularity in the horizontal lines describing the sky (among other details), is an illustration to “Nieuwen ieucht spieghel” (New Mirror for Youth), published in 1617 (arguably by Jan Jansz.), p. 161 (see http://emblems.let.uu.nl/nj1617033.html).
🐕
Engraving with etching on fine laid paper, backed with a support sheet.
🐕
Size: (sheet) 17 x 21 cm; (plate) 10.7 x 16 cm; (image borderline) 8.9 x 15.3 cm
🐕
Condition: crisp, well-inked and well-printed impression (undoubtedly a lifetime impression based on the strength of the printed lines and the still visible guidelines for the lettered text) backed with a support sheet of archival (millennium quality) washi paper. The sheet is in excellent condition (i.e. there are no tears, holes, folds, stains or foxing, but there is minor age toning and a few handling marks).
🐕
I am selling this small and rare emblem print showing a man holding by leash two hunting dogs and a woman seated beside him holding a falcon with hunting scenes behind the couple appropriate to the animals they hold, for AU$192 in total (currently US$138.78/EUR122.50/GBP109.26 at the time of posting this listing) including postage and handling to anywhere in the world (but not, of course, any import duties/taxes imposed by some countries).
🐕
If you are interested in purchasing this fascinating engraving from the early 1600s, please contact me (oz_jim@printsandprinciples.com) and I will send you a PayPal invoice to make the payment easy.

Fresco of a Stag in the Courtyard of Ambras Castle (Schloss Ambras), Innsbruck, Austria. The courtyard of the upper castle, decorated between 1564 and 1567 is among the best-preserved examples of fresco from the sixteenth century. The representations of princely virtues and muses, female and male heroes, and diverse heroic acts sought to display the royalty as exemplary. They relate to their commissioner Archduke Ferdinand II, patron of the arts and host of lavish festivities. The ground level is articulated with painted diamond-pointed blocks. The most striking scenes are depicted on the west wall: a Bacchic procession with carts, satyrs, and bacchantes between the first and second floors, and Orpheus playing music before the animals between the second and third floors. On the north wall, allegories of the liberal arts – music, geometry, arithmetic, astronomy, stand in architectural niches.

#Poussin represents here the exact moment in which Armida's hatred is turned into undying passion. Tasso introduced his poem with an #Allegoria in which he explained how many of the characters and events in the "Gerusalemme Liberata" symbolized different concepts. Rinaldo portrayed, according to the poet, war-like temperament. If directed by #Understanding, this would lead to positive results, but if guided by #Concupiscence it would lead to harmful effects. As argued by #AnthonyBlunt, therefore, the #Dulwich canvas depicts an #allegory of the human struggle between #Reason and Concupiscence.

The king of beasts, lions were often imbued with powerful symbolic attributes by medieval writers. According to the early thirteenth-century clerk William of Normany, 'It has three especially peculiar characteristics. In the first place it always dwells upon a high mountain. From afar off it can scent the hunter who is pursuing it. And in order that the latter may not follow it to its lair it covers over its tracks by means of its tail. Another wonderful peculiarity of the lion is that when it sleeps its eyes are wide open, and clear and bright. The third characteristic is likewise very strange. For when the lioness brings forth her young, it falls to the ground, and gives no sign of life until the third day, when the lion breathes upon it and in this way brings it back to life again.' Christian writers interpreted the lion concealing its tracks as an allegory for Christ concealing his divinity, it sleeping with its eyes open as Christ's continued spiritual life after his bodily death, and the revival of its stillborn cubs as Christ's resurrection. This Spanish mural was executed around 1200 in Burgos, and is now in the Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York.⠀

132 pg first draft of the feature. Will cut it down a bit and polish, but I’m extremely excited about its potential. A whole different animal than the short. Scifi that speaks about current issues, the feature is dramatic, prescient, aggressively political and never holds back.

Floral Bouquet by Jan van Huysum (1682-1749)
Jan van Huysum was one of the most celebrsted painters of floral stillifes of his time. He was a master of the so called Trompe-l'oeil, which means in his painting he reached such a precise amount of realistic detail that the viewer would be tricked into believing it was real (a good example would be a fly sitting on top of a petal). His florals are extremely delicate and he used a broad variety of flowers which symbolised both status and certain meanings. What is truly interesting however is the composition which can be seen in many of his works. If you look closely, you can determine a spiral or S-like shape in the way some florals are bound to the ground, already starting to decay whilst others still prosper and strive towards the light. This so called serpentine form or spiral is a typical motive for baroque art and goes hand in hand with the philosophy of the time that centers around vanity and embracing life in the remeberance of death. The arranfement of the florals therefore mirrors the cycle of life.
