Pentti Sarpaneva

Although I usually post on paintings, I’ve fixated lately on modernist jewelry. This example by Pentti Sarpaneva is a great inspiration. The creation of modernist jewelry is described by Philip K Dick in a breathtaking way in his novel The Man in the High Castle. The [Edfrank piece, jewelry] “represents nothing” and conforms to no external standards of design. It is completely disconnected from the sensible world, an object of “content, deprived of form” and immune to human attempts to project meaning into it. It exists—to ov, if one prefers—and nothing else

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.
