M.J.R. T.V. and the Artist as Artist video blog.

Video Painting Unveiling Preamble.

 

So, we have been catapulted into the second half of the year.

This is a good thing! After such a fruitful first half I find myself thrilled at the proposition of spending my holiday break reflecting upon the plans I made and pondering (in a reclining-by-a-pool position) on how to proceed considering all I have seen and learnt thus far.

 

5 Questions I packed for my vacation:

How do I feel now about the Prague Art Scene?

How do I feel about the artists in the Prague Art Scene?

How do I feel about myself in the Prague Art Scene?

Is what I have discovered in the last 6 months suitably reflected in my current paintings?

What exactly is it I discovered?

 

My true aim is to answer these questions visually having pillaged, plundered, shuffled and cogitated my ever mutating conclusions.

 

 

The 'Artist As...' series Is a shedding of skin. Underneath I hope to reveal what it is that I and my peers have in common.

While we still seek to define ourselves we lose the 'we'; lose the universal.

Dreamer, Pioneer,Recluse, Martyr, Child, Conduit, Storyteller etc.  I am all of these things and none of these things as long as I struggle intellectually with a problem which is unsolvable with words.

 

My latest painting is an attempt to answer one of the questions I put to myself at the beginning of the year – What does it mean to be an artist? 

THE ACCEPTANCE painting revealed in the accompanying video to this blog (Artist as Artist) concerns the recognition of 'the other'; The moment when self is destroyed and one reconnects with one.

 

Big thank you to Ed Longmire for making the video.

 

Enjoy…

 

 

 

I enjoy showing people the Prague art scene and what it represents and presents to us.

Simple stories. Short messages. Quick news. Small Aha! moments, guidance, encouragement and perhaps a little exhilaration.
