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.

    Very intersting, but too many ways for me to go with this to understand it. I just have to keep on looking.

    For me, some of the work is very good,, and I could return to it often over a long period of time.

      I think what I like about it is that it shows what can be done with mixed media that isn’t just say pop art, surrealism, dadaism, or cubism. This is a more human kind of art but unlike hyperrealism, where you know the artist has to have a high level of technical skill, this is medium where color and selection and shape is important. I actually can draw well (not as well as Bottecelli, obviously, but still) so I will be more likely to attempt some paintings with realism, although to be honest, when I have drawn my family members they didn’t always think it looked like them even if it was realistic.

    Portraists and photographs of people run into the problem of many people, if not most, don’t like the way they look. It is more usual than unusual.

    Good point! Some people have a better reason for dislike of their appearance than others, and much is based on what one is used to. There are many people I see often during a week, I am used to them, and at the same time I am spared the misfortune of having to look at myself.

    If she does, she isn’t saying. After more than 50 years, she has learned to live with it. (Irony)
