About kinneret

Hello, and welcome. I'm writing this blog under an alias. Why an alias? I started to write what may be described as an "American Gothic" novel (sort of Henry James/ Franz Kafka with violence) with some autobiographical details. ..when I started this blog I just decided to use the alias. This blog is about art and art history, but my interests also include literature, film analysis, psychology, forensic psychology, faerie tale analysis, cognitive therapy, cognitive linguistics, classical theater, World War II, and Russian and British history. My favorite writers include Kafka, the Brontes, and Philip K Dick. Thank you for reading this blog and I will happily reply to any comments.

    I see the Hopper Ash Can School, 21st century, here. That is a very good school to me.

      Thank you for your comment! Interesting comparison– Hopper updated via Blue Velvet. People are constantly looking up Neo Rauch (of all the art and artists I have on my site). I’m not sure why. it reminds me of Francis Bacon. I like it but I don’t know the reason for such extraordinary appeal. I suspect it’s trendy.
