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.

    What does this art work say to you? I’m at a loss….unless it is that man is part of his environment.

    Interesting thought. Some works of art (such as religious Medieval or Renaissance) had definite messages whereas modern art often seems nebulous. I knew this artist was depressed (since later committed suicide) so I didn’t feel positivity here, perhaps from that knowledge– I feel a sense of alienation from the image. The figure also seems to be holding up her arms to face in despair, kind of like Munch’s The Scream, and the erratic zigzag lines to the right (to me) suggest unrest.
