Putin Called Elton John and said “let’s talk”.
Putin should first call us up for qa sit down chat.!

_____________________________

Seriously!

Putin should be curious about our Provocative Rooms Project: 12 Rooms/Plus 1 and step into Room 12. Take a look of what’s hung on the wall. His “let’s do lunch” talk with Sir Elton will be better informed.

Actually, we’re not going to pull the curtain on Room 12 until we have completed the first three. Room #1 highlights California’s most contentious controversy: the drought, water, Delta Smelt supremacism. Certainly bound to be provocative: “The Guardian Angel of Hetch-Hetchy: One Damn Beautiful Dam”. (Take a look a its dedicated page.)

Best, review our exhibition summary: Provocative Rooms Project: 12 Rooms/Plus 1.  Each installation room center stages a major painting from our The Provocatives. The completion of all 12 (plus 1) rooms will be one for the history books.

Are we being grossly arrogant? No, just confident that these over-sized works – in size and theme – will do the chore assigned to them.

Be in the vanguard. Invest in what’s coming up. Look to yourself and your list of collectors.

To get this project off the ground  Room #1 is going for a  bargain. The centerpiece painting, preparatory studies and sketches, the installations.

Join us join the future with success.

Give us a call.

EXHIBITION OF THE PROVOCATIVES

Posted: August 13, 2015 in Uncategorized
PICTURE THIS OUT
How Will the Provocatives Show Up at their Exhibition?

EXHIBITION OF THE PAINTING

“Guardian Angel of Hetch-Hetchy: One Damn Beautiful Dam’

______________

  • POINT ONE:  The Provocatives Series sits at the heart of our project. Out-sized in execution and theme. Painted up to provoke, to get-talk-going.

  • POINT TWO:  When completed, each Original Oil exhibited in its own show. The viewer enters and is overwhelmed by the sheer presence of the painting and the force of its subject.

  • POINT THREE:  The Exhibition includes auxiliary pieces attached to the painting’s execution or its theme: preparatory drawings and oil sketches, displays & original works which accent and extend the painting’s theme. These are not space filers but exhibits to elicit a wow from the viewer.

  • POINT FOUR:  There are twelve original paintings in the Provocatives Series. All are out-sized. Their themes related and entwined. When series is completed and exhibited together (with its supportive material) the overwhelming wow factor is multiplied. Ideally, each painting commands its own exhibit with its auxiliary works and displays. This combined exhibition pushes the thematic undercurrents forward. The reason why this pictorial project was embarked upon – its near apocalyptic purpose – will become clear

* * *

THE PROVOCATIVES: THE FINAL EXHIBITION
Painting Titles

[NOTE: See Provocatives PAGE for descriptions and breakdowns of the paintings.]

* * *

ROOM 1: “Guardian Angel of Hetch-Hetchy: One Damn Beautiful Dam”

The inaugural painting and exhibit. Our first “anti” painting. picturing-out the false promise of Environmentalism the Religion with its dogmas, demand for submission, and hunt for heretics. (see below). Unfortunately, Pope Francis has been invited to sit with their tribunal. May God grant him infallible wisdom to walk away.

ROOM 2: “Father Junipero Serra Welcomes the Mi-Wuk Tribe into Heaven”

The Franciscan Missions never made it to the Sierra Foothills. Yet, Junipero Serra would have invited them into Heaven – if they were not already there! The look of this work – what will go into the painting’s composition – will be striking, and a bit surprising. See painting’s description and breakdown.

ROOM 3: “The Triumph of Ronald Reagan”

An out-sized painting trumpeting the achievement of President Reagan: his triumph over the totalitarian state, the upturning of American tax rates – sowing hope sea to sea – and the fall of the Soviet Union.

ROOM 4: “Eve: if Only she had been a Mother”

Would Satan, snaked up in that tree, had his way with her if Eve had time to fulfill her womanly creaturehood: if there truly was opportunity for sex and motherhood in Eden? This out-sized work trumpets a surprising pictorial answer. Is this our “anti” feminist painting? Not.

ROOM 5: “The Mother of Israel and Her Seven Sons on the Temple Mount (God’s Jewish Footprint)”

This work pictures-out the story of II Maccabees, chapter 7. A horrific yet hopeful tale of life trumpeting over death. The out-sized theme of this painting touches upon the universal & historic fact that Israel (the Jews) possess eternal right to Jerusalem and the Temple Mount. Though this story occurred hundreds of years before there was any entity called Palestine, this painting will be provocative for that.

ROOM 6: “The Three Great Repentants: St. Mary of Egypt, St. Moses the Black of Egypt, & Jeffrey Dahmer of Milwaukee.”

Boy, this one will certainly get-talk-going! The Egyptians lived in the 3rd or 4th Centuries. St. Mary was a notorious prostitute, St Moses the Black was a thie and murderer. We know about Jeffrey Dahmer! Need to visit its description and breakdown on the Provocative PAGE to get the drift.

ROOM 7: “The Martyrdom of Father Pro: Men of Mexico Unsheathe Manliness and Slay the Spirit of 1917”

This is a story from Mexico’s Cristo Rey revolt.

Want to solve the immigration problem? Restore Mexico to her true self. Mexico was castrated of her nationhood & manhood by the Marxist Revolution of the early 20th Century. Until Mexico (and all of Central America) rid itself of the residue of the Revolution there will always be an immigration problem. If you wish to tag this as the “anti” immigration painting, go ahead.

ROOM 8: “Archangel Michael Slays the Totalitarian Spirits: Fascism, Leftism, Islamism (The Three Evils)”

Our interpretation of the familiar image of the Archangel spearing the Devil. Here, the scrawny, smarmy body of Che Guevara substitutes for the arch-demon. Che is the stand-in figure for the Left’s Evil Spirit. Will out-sized point of the painting will be a bit disturbing – to evil1

ROOM 9: “She Died on Ruby Ridge (Idaho)”

To get the sense of it, suggest reading the brief the painting’s brief description and the article linked. Tag this not as an “anti” painting but a Constitutional one.

ROOM 10: [Under Wraps] Except to say that this is our commentary on 9/11 and Islam’s jihad..

ROOM 11: [Under Wraps] Except to say that the Slaughtered Innocents will be quite pleased.

ROOM 12: [Under Wraps] Except to say that the Humptey-Dumptey of our Post-Modern Age will have a great fall; The splatter of this egg will fry even on the black robed steps of SCOTUS.

BONUS ROOM: “Martha,Martha”

An out=sized glorious  thank-you to the wife! You (she) will be surprised at its quiet monumental picturing-out. And pleased.

 * * *

THE EXHIBITION OF THE PROVOCATIVE
“GUARDIAN ANGEL OF HETCH-HETCHY: ONE DAMN BEAUTIFUL DAM”

First, go to the Provocatives PAGE and take the temperature of the painting’s theme and composition. Much there. The linked posts epand the theme. Pope Francis’ ecology encyclical takes a fall. The Guardian Angel of Hetch-Hetchy was not pleased!

The Original Oil is hugely out-sized at 78 117! It overwhelms: not only by its dimensions but more so with the moral imagination of its composition. There’s much there.

When the viewer enters the exhibition room he’s drawn to (should say by!) the Guardian Angel’s commanding presence. At the same time, he is taken the man-made splendor the Angel is standing sentinel to – Hetch-Hetchy’s Damn Beautiful Dam. The look of the Guardian – catching the viewer’s eye – on the ready to step from the frame and slay any marauder who dares to demolish mankind’s man-made splendor. Climate change be damned!

More can be sensed by popping over to the painting’s breakout chart on the Provocatives PAGE. Here, we’re sketching out an impression of its inaugural exhibition.

THESE POINTS

Exhibition Room:

Rectangular with Original Oil hung on wall opposite of entrance. Room size proportional to the painting’s dimensions, which at nearly 10’ (vertical) makes for a forceful showing. Distance between painting and entrance should not be too great, for as the viewer steps there’s no second guessing of its commanding theme. Its vision is quickly intuited.

The two side walls – which are always a challenge to curate –   Larger pieces are placed nearer to the Original Oil, and, as much as possible, their coloring complementing those of the painting. This draws the room’s sight-lines to the ting. The main draw. Since straight parallel walls are monotonous at best – and can’t be bowed or sledge-hammered in sections – their winged expanse can be broken up by stand alone displays. (See below for what’s hung.)

Original Oil on the Anchor Wall:

Seems as if the Louvre was raised along the Seine for that mysterious of all Greek statues, Winged Victory. Regardless of how one enters the room the statue is perfectly viewed: positioned on her raised platform as if on a ship’s bow; at the correct height, correctly distanced from the wall and ceiling above, the subtle hues of her marble shading into the tones about her. Same with Michelangelo’s David. Standing within its monumental niche – arches and domes bending marbled submission to the statue, a curving parade of piers approaching – the marble David rises into view as if Florence’s Accademia Gallery – and all the city – was built for him, alone.

The same for The Guardian Angel of Hetch-Hetchy: One Damn Beautiful Dam.

Have yet to calibrate the details. The Original Oil commands the anchor wall (it’s tagged “anchor” for securing all the room’s sightlines and themes. Alone. Not so much hung as seated against the wall. Even the hues and lighting played upon the wall add to –shall I say it? – the painting’s near regal sitting. Like the David, much prefer our Guardian Angel – even though being a painting and not a statue – to be set within its own monumental arch, commanding the pull and bend of every line in the room. This takes into account the key doctrine of hanging a picture – it is something that is approached.

We will see.

The Side (Wing) Walls:

The exhibition includes supporting materials: preparatory drawings and oil sketches, and displays augmenting the painting’s theme. Drawings and oil sketches record the several stages of completing the Original Oil. They are, hopefully, works in themselves. The displays touch on the history of building the dam, its place in the greater California Water Project, the near suicidal campaign to dismantle it, and, crucially, the adult recognition that the only viable solution is the doubling – or, better yet, tripling to – California’s reservoir capacity.

[See the breakdown chart on the Provocatives PAGE for samples.]

The right side wall (and displays) used for a selection of drawings and oil sketches. A painting such as this requires multiple testing of point-of-view, composition experiments, and color choices; which fauna & flora from the abundance of the Hetch-Hetchy and Yosemite Valleys; which look says perfect guardian angel, scavenging the visual history of angels for models. What’s put on the wall will tell the story of how the Original Oil was conceived and painted.

The left side wall (and displays) used to highlight & illustrate the painting’s theme: the force of it beyond its execution. This is in the tinkering stage, but will include the building of that Damn Beautiful Dam, the world wonder that is California’s Water Project, and even a strong visual statement about the marauding effort to tear down and scatter. Subtly, comes to an exposure of Environmentalism the Religion. Nothing changes for the good until flays out for all to see the falsity of that. (What’s placed on either side of the entrance door seals that! See below.)

Won’t leave it at that! The left side wall will be crowned with a greater – and more hopeful visual statement: how California will get redemption by tripling its reservoir storage.

The Entrance Wall:

The viewer won’t note it when he enters. It will take walking towards the main event, the painting, and turning around. Something striking, even comical, is exhaling a low whistle.

On either side of the entrance door is a paired diptych. Not as monumental as the Original Oil, but near to; more loosely composed, but with enough serious handling to elicit a smile. Done up, so to speak, as a teasing Daumier or Hogarth – though never cartoonish.

On one side is a frightening visual of California if goose-stepping black-boot Environmentalism is permitted to run amuck: a picture of a haughty Delta Smelt sitting grossly, beastly on his throne with deceived elites offering slaving homage as the State lies in ruins round about.

On the other side, equally monumental, is an image of a sturdy gallows along the banks of the Sacramento. On its crossbeam is a much mangled Delta Smelt hung high and utterly alone while the Peoples of California go about their business flourishing and producing.

This sheer presence of these twined painting, exhibiting the choice of defeat or hope will certainly get-talk-going.

Yet, across the exhibition room, with a twinkle in his fiery, fondling his sentinel sword, is the Guardian Angel of Hetch-Hetchy. He sees all. He knows.

 

 

 

 

POST-MODERNISM:
OUR FOE, OUR NEMESIS,
THE SLAYER OF OUR MUSE,
THE GOUGER OF PICTORIAL EYES

Good Lord (Great God), Give Our Hog-Bristle Brush the Strength & Courage to Paint the Enemy into a Corner & Out the Door

* * *

On almost every page, of this and our companion site, we’ve been quite critical of Modernism: both its worldview and its expression in Art.  And rightly so. Some have taken issue with that; not by crossing swords against our stance, our observations, our hard-hearted reasoning, but by welding an exasperated astonishment: “How can anyone not be Modern?”

What’s exasperating, really, is their refusal to sit down for an honest chat. Over beer & coffee, we’d be happy to tell why we hauled Modernism out back as we gave it a whack or two here & there. Big deal!

The Great Modern Project is (in truth) what makes us Westerners; though it’s not been much of an Age of Reason Modernism has a bit to go before its course is run; and  if it would stop being misdirected by the bastardy of our day, still much to offer.

Modernism has always been adolescent in its look-about, always in need of having its ears tweaked and its neck scrubbed. Glad to do our part: take Past Masters & Times as  pumice soap to the dirt its magnate flesh picked up rolling and wallowing in byways and misdirection. Modernism’s first gasp into history was so giddy, so full of itself, it needed our stepping in.

Gave it all we had, though it didn’t much appreciate the guiding hand. Modernism bypassed the threshold into adulthood: went traipsing down the thorny, stony path – like so many bleating lambs and yipping pups – into Post-Modernism’s (moral, political, philosophical, aesthetic, pictorial) slaughterhouse.

(Sets one thinking: even before Modernism was weaned as a pup – let’s say in 1910 – or had its first lamb-chop butchering, had it already packed its bag for the apocalypse?)

Yet, anyway, mind well. Modernism is not (is never) our philosophical or pictorial nemesis or foe. Have never said that!

That tag we gladly pin on where it belongs – Post-Modernism.

As a worldview or as a squatter occupying the Arts, Post-Modernism is our arch-enemy. Make no drown dead bones about that! Open a couple of the links below to get the point.

In fact – the boots-on-the-ground truth is – we’ll take to the trenches to defend Modernism against the plundering Post-Modernism ravages against it. Do it, even as we must admit we’re rescuing our foe’s battered wayward parent; for Modernism, in a careless, thoughtless moment of pride, had sired this philosophical and pictorial bastard upon the body of a whore not of its making.

Well, there it is!

OUR CHORE

How does the point of this post color up our Guardian Angel? We’ll find it: the way he clinches the eye of the viewer, the brilliant beckoning hue of his wings, the authority of his grip on his commander’s sword. We’ll find it.

* * *

Environmentalism is one of the Three-Headed God of Post-Modernism. The other two: Multi-Culturalism & Gender/Sexual Continuum (Queer) Theory

* * *

Environmentalism the Religion has its own Sacred Scripture, Priesthood, Rituals & Litanies, Sacraments & Sacramentals, Infallible Dogmas, Catechism, Heresy-Hunters, Inquisitions & Excommunications, Sacred Space, & Stories, Idols-Makers, Tithe Enforcers, & Mission Work

Environmentalism the Religion is (as is the wont of the Three-Headed Post-Modernist God) is the forever enemy of true religion (in short, Jews, Christians, Greeks & Latins).

Environmentalism the Religion has declared a War of Religion against Reason, Heart, & Human Flourishing; against every Man, every Woman & Unborn Babe.

* * *

THE RIGHTEOUS KNIGHTS OF HETCH-HETCHY’S  O’ SHAUGHNESSY DAM GO OFF TO WAR (Like Christian Soldiers) AGAINST THE THEOCRATIC OVERLORDS OF ENVIRONMENTALISM THE RELIGION.

Environmentalism the Religion crashes down, crushes the liberty and labors of all Men:  crashes and crushes with its suffocating dogmas, the bondage of its rites and the theft of its blackened roped off holy places; its pack of inquisition wolves obsessively on the hunt for heresy and apostates; howling orders to its brigade of fagot gatherers to haul in the wood for the pyres of shame and excommunication.

Environmentalism the Religion unfurls its jihad, scorched earth banner, “It’s a Consensus; All the Experts Say”: the Great Lie forged in the Satanic Mills of its captive media, academia, foundations, and the bureaucratized state.

Christian Soldiers and Righteous Knights, armor up with the sword of truth, the shield of courage – the fight to save the Damn Dam of Hetch-Hetchy is upon us.

NOTES ON AN IDOL

Maureen Mullarkey (First Things)

  Growing mightily all the while is the cult of environmentalism, a burgeoning state religion summarized in the catechism of sustainable development. It is the ascendant idol of our time, as magnetic—and totalizing—as the Leninist-Stalinist doctrines were to Milosz’ contemporaries….. There is little need to wait for the climate encyclical to know which way this trolley is headed. On its website, the Pontifical Academy of Sciences announces an April 28th conference: Protect the Earth, Dignify Humanity: the Moral Dimensions of Climate Change and Sustainable Humanity.

WHAT IS THE APPEAL IN LOOKING LIKE A BRANCH OF THE UN?

 Guy Noir – Private Eye,

 [O]ur underground correspondent we keep on retainer in an Atlantic seaboard city that knows how to keep its secrets, also seemed quite excercized about this, as he communicated recently:

Much better to sound like a government official than a Pope, even if we insist we are no NGO. When there is a “Speaker’s Line Up” and an “official presentation,” you realize we have ceased to be dealing with religion and are instead competing with government and celebrity machines. How long before we see The EarthKeeper’s Bible or Spiritual Disciplines for the Environmentally-Aware…?

Here were are: Augustinus, “For Pope’s Environment Encyclical, an unusual line-up of presenters for official Vatican press conference, including climate change radical” (Rorate Caeli, June 10, 2015):

he Vatican has just revealed in today’s Bollettino the line-up of speakers for the official presentation of the “Environment Encyclical”, Laudato Si, on June 18 at the New Synod Hall.

The most interesting is probably Prof. John Schellnhuber, Founding Director of the Potsdam Institute for Climate Impact Research, proponent of a “zero-carbon world,” known for his “aggressive stance on climate policy,” and for having famously declared in 2009 that the “carrying capacity” of the Earth is less than one billion people! He is also known, according to Augustinus, for his “intense advocacy of rapid de-industrialization in order to stave off global warming.” You’ve really got to read the quotes to believe this guy’s for real. And, last but not least, he is an advocate of a real form of “World Government,” something advanced also in the cause of climate control. One has to wonder why the Vatican selected him to be the sole layman and environmental “expert” to present on the occasion of the debut of the Pope’s new encyclical. Really.

GETTING ALL PETERED OUT ON POPE FRANCIS

“Petered Out”?

Our underground correspondent we keep on retainer, Guy Noir – Private Eye, caught me completely by surprise this evening by walking right through my door at 6:37pm, unannounced and visibly agitated, and handing me a print-out of an internet article that quite apparently had him all riled up.

“This is harsh, no doubt,” he said, chewing on a cigar stub. (Since when did Noir take up cigar smoking?) “But I have to admit that Ann Coulter-like broadsides aside, it raises a point that deserves comment,” he added, a gravelly growl in his voice. [Open link above. Read the rest. Insightful.]

The Communist President Of Bolivia Offers A Blasphemous Idol To Pope Francis Showing Jesus On The Communist Symbol Of The Hammer And Sickle. Pope Frances Rejects It And Says: “This Is Not Right!”

By Walid Shoebat

Bolivian president Evo Morales presented pontiff with crucifix depicting Jesus nailed to hammer and sickle, which pope returned after a brief examination saying “this is not right”. So many people accuse  him of being a communist. But this is just another proof that he is not a communist.

Pope Francis Bolivia

The response of the pope after being handed the wooden crucifix during a formal ceremony, he examined it for a few seconds before returning it to a Bolivian presidential aide expressed irritation, muttering the words “eso no está bien” (“this is not right”)

While many try to make a controversy that the Pope accepted the gift, it is obvious that the Pope said “eso no está bien” (“this is not right”) TWICE at 00:14 and 00:22. Regardless of what Vatican commentators stated or who said what, the video is clear that the Pope returned the improper gift stating that it was “improper”. Even the Pope looking disturbed was obvious and his words were clear to anyone who understands Spanish.

Pope Francis is presented with a gift of a crucifix carved into a wooden hammer and sickle, the Communist symbol uniting labor and peasants, by Bolivian President Evo Morales in La Paz, Bolivia, Wednesday, July 8, 2015. Apart from the carved hammer and sickle, Morales gave Francis another politically loaded gift, a copy of "The Book of the Sea," which is about the loss of Bolivia's access to the sea during the War of the Pacific with Chile in 1879-83. Morales said things have changed with this pope and the Bolivian people are greeting Francis as someone who is "helping in the liberation of our people." (L'Osservatore Romano/Pool Photo via AP)

The Catholic Church has been the greatest enemy against Communism. When the communists took over Mexico, the Catholics with both faith and arms in the Cristero War; when the atheist communists were slaughtering tens of thousands of Christians in Spain, the Pope declared a crusade that was led by Franco; in the communist regime in Romania, the Catholics were slaughtered and horrifically tortured because they defied communism. There are communists in the Catholic Church, but the Church will never embrace communism.

WISE WORDS FROM FR. “Z”

Where is the liberal ‘c’atholic anger at insult to the Pope and the Church?

dukesofhazzard1Where is the liberal catholic anger and frustration at the insulting gesture of the hammer and sickle “crucifix” offered to Pope Francis and the Catholic Church by Bolivian President Evo Morales? Look at the liberal catholic sites… do you see any commentary?

Let’s play this out.

How would the libs react were someone to give a Confederate Battle Flag to the Pope during his visit to these United States?

What would Amerika and Fishwrap say if the Pope, handed the flag, smiled and nodded and mummured quiet comments?

Would they say that it isn’t about “ideology“?   “No, no!”, they’d explain,  “It’s a symbol of… rights of states and .. and … tradition!”

During papal visits, Popes are presented with all sorts of things. Sometimes the junk, such as paintings, winds up on the walls of Vatican offices, as it did in ours.

Let’s imagine that the Pope were to be presented with a painting of Our Lord crucified during the burning of Atlanta. Instead of Our Lady and St. John by the Cross, you see Gen. Lee and Jefferson Davis. Above the Lord’s head, in place of INRI, DIXIE.

Would there be any official statement that that wasn’t about ideology?

Would there be any liberal reaction?

But, my bad.  I keep forgetting that Roe v. Wade, Doe v. Bolton, Dredd Scott v. Sanford  – denying personhood to human beings – were liberal non-ideological projects too.

FOR THE LATEST, FOR UPDATES: AN EXCELLENT SITE

Climate Science Coalition of America

* * *

What Eco-Fascism, Post-Modernism, Islamism want (and will never get) is weather/climate stasis. Steady, unchanging nature minus the very footprint & breath of man. The very existence of man – men, women & unborn babes – is the Original Sin. To redeem nature, to save the earth, footprints such as theirs must fade, their breath crystallized

Clean air & water, an abundant and healthy food supply – even the set aside of natural wonders for pleasure – is not environmentalism. Those goods are duties of stewardship, the work of Mankind’s mandate.

Environmentalism is the Religion of negation – of the utter reduction, retrenchment of men, women, & unborn babes: the extermination of man & his works.

Environmentalism is the Dark Lord Angel slaughtering, clearing the killing fields of earth of human flesh down to the threshold of the Gnostic Knowers, the political elites who preserve their stale lives by slopping their door frames with the blood of  “lives not worthy of life”.

This is the ideology – the wont for totalitarian supremacy – behind, under-girding the mongering over “climate change”, so-called.

The Guardian Angel of Hetch-Hetchy stands sentinel. Not even the once manful City on the Bay can toss the Great Giant from his post, smash the dam, and “restore” the valley before its found purpose quenching the thirst of every San Franciscan man, woman & unborn babe.
