A Route of Evanescence, (1489)

X
A Route of Evanescence,
With a revolving Wheel –
A Resonance of Emerald
A Rush of Cochineal –
And every Blossom on the Bush
Adjusts it’s tumbled Head –
The Mail from Tunis – probably,
An easy Morning’s Ride –

Democracy in America

A win for Hillary Clinton

The first presidential debate

X
X

 Trump alternately bullied; boasted;

dithered; rambled and lied.

Trump loves the “deal’:

leveraging/conniving

for his personal gain/credit

– for and ALL about Trump.

“It’s business!” he exclaimed.

Trump hopelessly lacks a moral compass-

necessary for a world leader.

X

X

Clinton was consistent:

prepared; wry- not scolding; coherent;

steered; danced and stung.  

X

X

CLINTON stood UP as PRESIDENTIAL.

CLINTON exemplified+ testified

to her capacity/experience

as a skilled/balanced

COLLABORATOR/ IMPROVISER/ NEGOTIATOR

critical characteristics at the solemn + swiftly changing

WORLD table

in a crisis. 

Words matter when you run for president. And they really matter when you are president. And I want to reassure our allies in Japan and South Korea and elsewhere that we have mutual-defence treaties and we will honour them.
It is essential that America’s word be good. And so I know that this campaign has caused some questioning and worries on the part of many leaders across the globe. I’ve talked with a number of them. But I want to—on behalf of myself, and I think on behalf of a majority of the American people, say that, you know, our word is good.

PLEASE CLICK on the link to THE ECONOMIST’S analysis below: 
http://www.economist.com/blogs/democracyinamerica/2016/09/win-hillary-clinton

PERIOD.

 

 

 Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton and Republican counterpart Donald Trump faced off in the first presidential debate of 2016 at Hofstra University in Hempstead, New York. Right from the start, the two dived directly into attacks. They engaged in testy exchanges over trade, the U.S. economy, race and foreign policy. It seems Clinton may have got the better of Trump, with sixty-two percent of viewers in a CNN/ORC poll saying the former secretary of state won.

LOS ANGELES, Sept. 27 (UPI) — Zach Galifianakis is against having Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump on his awkward Funny or Die talkshow, Between Two Ferns.

“No. That doesn’t interest me,” the comedian said during an interview with The Los Angles Times after he was asked if Trump’s campaign was interested in appearing on the show after his opponent Hillary Clinton did to much fanfare.

“Doing it the other way doesn’t interest me. He’s the kind of guy who likes attention — bad attention or good attention. So you’re dealing with a psychosis there that’s a little weird,” Galifianakis continued.

 

“I wouldn’t have somebody on that’s so mentally challenged. I feel like I’d be taking advantage of him. And you can print that.”

Galifianakis also shared how he felt Clinton had a good sense of humor during her appearance and was game for the type of off-putting questions he normally presents during the show.

“I was very impressed with her,” he said. “I walked away from that whole interview going, ‘She’s cool.’ I thought she was cool, and I don’t know if that was my impression of her before that.”

Galifianakis has also had President Obama appear on Between Two Ferns in 2014 in order to get young people to sign up health insurance under the Affordable Care Act.

PRESIDENTIAL DEBATE #1  26 SEPTEMBER 2016

I AM SO NERVOUS.

CIVILITY IS GONE.

TRUMP IS NOT A TEMPLATE OF HONOR, RESPECT NOR A HUMANITARIAN.  
WHY IS IT THAT AMERICANS  DO NOT CALL HIM OUT?
I HOPE THE MODERATORS CALL TRUMP OUT + DO NOT COWER TO HIS  ALPHA
BULLYING /SPIN!
MORAL COURAGE, PLEASE!!!!
I CANNOT UNDERSTAND A TRUMP SUPPORTER’S BRAIN
– CREATING A DEMONIC/CARTOON OF HILLARY CLINTON
WHICH DISMISS HER LIFE-LONG CONTRIBUTIONS
YOU ARE RIGHT TRUMP/ERS:
HILLARY CLINTON IS CROOKED FOR AMERICA.

BOTTOM: DAY OF THE DEAD SKULLS FULL OF FARMER’S MARKET FRESH VEGETABLES

X
X

Please note:
Creating + viewing the color YELLOW is like holding water!

X

My work needs an actual encounter.

X

The BREATH series are GOLD on the dawn’s yellow.
The  iridescent gold vanishes during a unique equation/matrix
of the ambient light and the position of the viewer.

X

The ICANFEEL series are the same color -yellow/GOld,
and, depending on the ambient light and position of viewer,
the color shifts and the luminosity of the graphite pencil incised into the surface glistens.

X

The GoldBirdSONG series are line drawings on 100% cotton rag board.
The color pencil is Canary Yellow.
I drawLISTEN- total dive off a cliff,
then cut them up the long boards
and
then honed LISTENing as I make the parts
into VISUALsonICS.

 

X

My art is an experience of witnessing- listening with your palms open.
My art is a performance.
It is akin to the visceral/sensual experience between
looking at a photograph of your beloved
and
being in the actual presence of your beloved.
A/LIVE.
LISTENING/ RECEIVING/ OFFERING
with ALL your senses.

Metropolitan Diary

I Work at the Guggenheim

By OB ASKIN

Dear Diary:

X
I work
at the Guggenheim
which is slanted
trying balance
I list there
I drift there
and say
do not touch

X
People
You may ask me
what’s it mean
when it’s blue
and nothing else
but you mean
is it priceless
I say do not touch

X
People
you are slanted
taking notice
of titles
and oil on canvas
recent acquisition but
paintings
do not touch

X
I see
faces in the blue
which you can cry with
which you can play with
faces in the gallery calling
you say do not touch

When I returned from NYC to my TC homeland,
I needed to adjust to the vastness of space, botanical green
and the unique blue of the Minnesota sky.
I was a P. S. 1  Studio Residency Fellow
– 1 of 41 artists worldwide to receive this prestigious award.

X

It was August when I returned to my birth certificate home.
I lived my life while in NYC on 115 Mulberry Street, Little Italy.
It was HOME to me – more HOME than my birth certificate home.

X

I found a loft in St. Paul.
St. Paul reminded me of TriBeCa : the scale.
It was a massive space in a warehouse of mixed small businesses.
The building was owned by Henry Zaidan,
 a real estate developer and an Egyptian with dual citizenship in Canada.
Henry was/is a remarkable Renaissance man.
I miss him.
He has since returned to Montreal where people have dialogues and discourse.
Henry understood art and was an astute art collector.
I observed him as I would present my NEW work.
Henry possesses exquisite sensibilities.
He collected my art for his private collection.
He was HOME to me.

X

I received the BUSH ARTIST FELLOWSHIP.

X

I needed to learn to unfurl my wings after the compressed NYC blue sapphire life.
I bought rolls of 5′ width paper.
I taped brushes on the ends of branches.
I mixed blue paint.
I created lengths of instantly blue paintings.
Actions of blue.
Singing the blues.

X

A cousin from Arizona visited my studio.  
I showed him my BLUE PAINTINGS.
Jonathan’s response: “Catherine, that is allot of BLUE.”

Black is associated with power; 
elegance; formality and mystery.

X

Black denotes strength and authority;
it is considered to be a very formal, elegant, and prestigious color.

X

In heraldry, black is the symbol of grief.

X

Black was one of the first colors used by artists
in neolithic cave paintings.

X
X
X
X
X

Yellow is a symbolic color that brings joy and delight. 
The third chakra, located at the solar plexis,
is said to be yellow.

X

The
“solar plexis”
is associated with the power of the sun (solar-sun).
Yellow, then, is associated with positive thinking.

X

The solar plexis is where we/I gather
y/our/ my courage
and
y/our/ my will power.

The yellow color I selected for

BLACKMOVESYELLOW

series shifts suddenly, and slowly,
the color vacillates from gold to citron
depending on the  source/ intensity of the ambient light
and the position of the viewer to the work.
My art needs an actual encounter.
It IS a performance that needs to be witnessed/ experienced.

X

I mixed several variations of yellow like a sound engineer working with a sonic.
Refining.
Refining.
Discerning.
Refining.
Discerning.

Touchstone.

X

My art is silent sonics.
You listen to it with attentive, receptive open palms.
The space is the silence between the notes.

X

Each painting is a composition of disparate parts:
 filmic + sonic + poetic.

X

The line quality resonates with rené marie’s
 flowing/ deepening  sonic grace of her voice.

X

rené marie  and her band improvised on my writings when she was @ the Dakota.
Astounding.

X

Then there is Charles Lloyd’s sonics:
a testament of the presence of the sacred.

X

I listened to Charles’

WILD MAN DANCE

as I worked in the studio over and over and over and over and over and over and 
over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over…

X

Charles’ art is always a revelation,
a harkening of ALL that is only visible
to the heart, by/ for the beloved
and calls out what is luminous in y/our my soul.

X

His sonics are one continuous river of reverence.
Blessing the wild.
Blessings of the serene.
Blessed are the explorers who listen to the Oracle of Delphi and hold a divining rod.
