The Strange Story and Fabulous Draping of Selene (Diana) and Endymion

If Cate Blanchett can wield the invisible Nenya ring as the mind-reading elven queen Galadriel, and in another life be married to Brad Pitt born old and aging backward as Benjamin Button, then they ought to make a movie about the love life of Selene and Endymion in which these two actors would excel, as they do in all their roles. 1,663 more words

My Butterfly. My Axe.

She does a terrific job with that crusty old axe. I wish I had butterflies that big in my garden. The use of black-and-white makes the person leap out of the picture, as if three-dimensional.

Random first impressions of an observer, regardless of anything intended by the artist (of which we know nothing, and have not asked): In the piece below titled, In a Cage, the man is escaping into, and taking refuge in the old abandoned house through one window that is not boarded up, a place that has also granted refuge to birds. The birds are surprised at his arrival, but curious and not unwelcoming. He is consoling the nearest bird, assuring it he means no harm. He is naked because he has run here suddenly, without notice, without time to dress, and this is the way he typically dresses at home. His black-and-white appearance emphasizes by contrast the colorful character of his refuge, where, after lingering a while, he will become colorful, too. Rather, he will regain the color he has at home, after he warms up from the chill of his harried escape. The character of this refuge is not in mere color, but in condition, an old, abandoned place with a sense of history, nostalgia, warmth and seclusion. Padding naked through the house will be a mildly exciting exploration for him, and take his mind off his naked vulnerability and pursuers. The man is young, possibly a teenager. His skin-tight shorts enhance and sharpen the impact of his nudity. He is beautiful in every visible respect, including movement. As to the fork-legged banana-bird and it's seeming deceased companion: does not fit my story, but then what kind of story would it be if everything always fit? Life never allows that, why should art? Thank you, Ms. Unglaub, for this intriguing use of nudity, for the fascinating design and beauty of this piece, and for the fun of playing with whimsical notions about it. It does not need any interpretation at all. It is just a delight to look at. Visitors, what do you see in this picture?

QuasiNudum often explores the question, "What is nakedness or nudity? What makes it partial or whole?" This gripping piece, titled Transfer, by Josephine R. Unglaub could be asking such questions. Or are the questions not asked by the art or the artist, but inspired in the observer? In this piece, who is the observer, really? Isn't she looking right at you, asking you something? Inviting you someplace? To transfer to another venue? The nudity here is both delicious and haunting, inviting and challenging, and simply beautiful.  Thank you, Ms. Unglaub.
