Duane Michals, The Human Condition (sequence), 1969….so true, still today.


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.

    Michaels shows us women as steady in this picture and in Annunciation, with the men going through motions fulfilling desires/objectives, leaving or arriving, blurred by a slow shutter speed. True, often the story of man meeting and leaving the woman. He tells the stories well, and one could possibly fault him on composition, but that would weaken the messages. Works both ways, though, especially today.
