Tulip Dance Painting by Abrishami $2750 at Emerys Fine Art. Hessam’s site…..The French press has called Hessam’s artwork “A statement in the fluidity of human figures…with tension between each figure, a kinship that provokes the viewer to seek reasons for such a relationship.”
Earth tones breaking into abstraction. I am striken by color and the relationship between colors placed together. One is immediately attracted or repelled by art simply because of the interaction of color and the individuality of its perception. Abrishami’s colors are bold and awakening. When the artists strike with color it awakens the mind and makes it receptive to meaning.
I am also intrigued by the motion and flow of the figures. The sweeping curved strokes envoke dance. Well Done!
Below are writing links, video links and images from a January 7th 2017 (1/7/17, or 20170107) poetry performance of Janet Kuypers’ Austin poetry feature through “New Year, New Poems” live in Austin Texas.
The theme of the night with other features was about poetry and messages that reflected coping with upcoming changes in the future, and Janet Kuypers covered this very explicitly in her show of all 2017 poems that talk about taking charge in your life and making YOUR future the way YOU want it to be. Her “Beginning Anew” show was also accompanied by acoustic guitar from John, and in her second poem.
Janet Kuypers' poetry show "Beginning Anew" live 1/7/17 in Austin w/ John's acoustic guitar (Sony).
Before the show started she also released copies to most everyone there of a chapbook of the writings she was performing in her show (in the order they were performed), and all of the pieces from this reading were also released electronically in a “Beginning Anew” chapbook, which you can download as a PDF file for free any time.
