When A Selfie Becomes A Self-Portrait   8 comments

kenne & joy painting-blog-2Kenne and Joy — Computer painting by kenne

This image started as an iPhone selfie and evolved to become a self-portrait.
I’m sure the purest of the art world would not see this as a self-portrait painting.
For me, however, smartphones, cameras and software are tools,
just as paint, canvas and mirrors are tools. Each can be art
without having been done by a Rembrandt or a Sontag. My desire is for others to become a tourist in my reality.

Interpretation is the revenge of the intellectual upon art.

All Souls Day Selfie   Leave a comment

All Souls Procession

All Souls Day Selfie — Grunge Art by kenne

All Souls

THEY are chanting now the service of All the Dead
And the village folk outside in the burying ground
Listen–except those who strive with their dead,
Reaching out in anguish, yet unable quite to touch them:
Those villagers isolated at the grave
Where the candles burn in the daylight, and the painted wreaths
Are propped on end, there, where the mystery starts.

The naked candles burn on every grave.
On your grave, in England, the weeds grow.

But I am your naked candle burning,
And that is not your grave, in England,
The world is your grave.
And my naked body standing on your grave
Upright towards heaven is burning off to you
Its flame of life, now and always, till the end.

It is my offering to you; every day is All Souls’ Day.

I forget you, have forgotten you.
I am busy only at my burning,
I am busy only at my life.
But my feet are on your grave, planted.
And when I lift my face, it is a flame that goes up
To the other world, where you are now.
But I am not concerned with you.
I have forgotten you.

I am a naked candle burning on your grave.

— D. H. Lawrence

We spent a day and night at Edgewater Casino, along the Colorado River at Laughlin, Nevada
before diving the “Loneliest Road In America” to the Great Basin National Park.

Mirror, Mirror On The Wall — Selfie Or Self Portrait   Leave a comment

Self PortraitMirror, Mirror On The Wall — Image by kenne

Selfies

Before the iPhone

and selfies,

there was the

self-portrait.

Children drew stick-figures

of themselves,

and still do.

Artisits painted

reflected images

of themselves,

and still do.

The images of life

 we find most

fascinating

are of ourselves —

mirror, mirror

on the wall . . .

Tell me your stories

of unknown pleasures

as seen in the eyes of others.
