Einstein's Lost Theory Describes a Universe Without a Big Bang. In 1917, a year after Albert Einstein’s general theory of relativity was published — but still two years before he would become the international celebrity we know — Einstein chose to tackle the entire universe.

Einstein's Lost Theory Describes a Universe Without a Big Bang

For anyone else, this might seem an exceedingly ambitious task — but this was Einstein. Einstein began by applying his field equations of gravitation to what he considered to be the entire universe. The field equations were the mathematical essence of his general theory of relativity, which extended Newton’s theory of gravity to realms where speeds approach that of light and masses are very large. But his math was better than he wanted to believe — his equations told him that the universe could not stay static: It had to either expand or contract. Einstein chose to ignore what his mathematics was telling him.

Sabine Tress. La Llorona (2011-2016) Third Eye Drawing. I am happy to be back showing in Provincetown this week at starting on Friday.

Third Eye Drawing

I will have 40 small drawings and 11 paintings in the gallery for the month of December. If you are interested in any of the work but can’t get to Provincetown please don’t hesitate to contact me or the gallery. I posted some of the drawings last week. The ones I’m posting today are a bit of a departure. Because I was making so many I had the chance to play and experiment quite a bit. I am doing this to try to break some old habits. I am ambidextrous to begin with and I do use both of my hands while working, but this approach of closing my eyes was really helpful. Ahtcast: Artist Interview: Brigid Watson.

ahtcast: Artist Interview: Brigid Watson

Boston based painter Brigid Watson is ahtcast's guest this time around. You may remember Brigid from The Mixed-Media Tapes recordings where she spoke in depth about color, and metaphysics. I have invited her back for a full length interview here on the podcast. Brigid answers my questions about drawing, how long it takes to finish her thick impasto paintings, and where her titles may or may not come from.

Biographie de André Brink

Comme Nadine Fordimer ou Breyten Breytenbach, il est connu pour son combat contre l’apartheid. À travers son œuvre, il n’a de cesse d’explorer ses sentiments ambigus à l’égard de son statut d’Afrikaner. Sa « schizophrénie culturelle » se manifeste d’ailleurs dans la double rédaction à laquelle il se livre : il écrit chacune de ses œuvres simultanément en anglais et en afrikaans. Alors que ses premiers romans sont centrés autour des problèmes inhérents à l’apartheid, à partir de 1994, il s’intéresse davantage aux défis posés par la nouvelle ère ouverte par son abolition. André Brink naît dans une famille de la classe moyenne ; ses parents sont des descendants de colons installés au XVIIe siècle, fidèles au parti nationaliste pro-apartheid. En parallèle, Brink entame une carrière littéraire. Landscapes — Tollef Runquist. KEN BUGUL - Personne n'en veut.

The penetrating power of rhythm: The elemental energy of landscape and ritual forms much of the focus of Charles Gore’s work in this exhibition.

Talking Art Review by Lesley Sharpe

His interest in art, performance and ritual, evolving from his initial training at Chelsea Arts College and the Wimbledon School of Arts, and later studies at the School of Oriental and African Studies (SOAS), has shaped the paintings, photographs and music which have been brought together for ‘Art in Unconventional Spaces’. These dynamic compositions frame moments of perception, but continue to expand through their engagement with the viewer. Such expressiveness is difficult to ignore: Gore’s work explores the complex relationship between art as figurative object and art as subjective expression and experience, a relationship particularly evident in his African photographs, many of dance and ritual, which capture the rhythm of intensely-felt emotion, freedom and joy.

Lesley Sharpe, November 2009. Présentation de la pensée. L’unité de la pensée de Maldiney © Rajak Ohanian En abordant la lecture de Maldiney et habitués aux classifications académiques, nous avons du mal à déterminer ce qui y relève strictement de la philosophie et ce qui est de l’ordre, ici, de la psychiatrie, ou là, de l’esthétique.

Présentation de la pensée

Or, quelle que soit la façon de concevoir l’articulation de ces différents domaines, il y a – en tout cas – une unité dans la manière dont Maldiney les aborde. John Cage and the Northwest School.

Tougher than the Rest: Joan Mitchell's Tree Paintings and Black Drawings

Taken together, they offer an extended examination of a painter’s process as her sensibilities shift from a dominant mode expression to something altogether different. Cheim & Read, at 547 West 25th, has mounted a show of eleven paintings and pastels based on trees, while across the street at 514, Lennon, Weinberg is displaying twice that number, mostly small to midsize charcoal drawings alongside a few oil paintings. The two shows overlap in terms of time period (the sixties for both, the seventies and nineties for Cheim & Read); they also each feature an oil painting from 1964 that’s a close sibling of the other.

At Cheim & Read, the canvas is “First Cypress,” measuring 88 1/2 x 78 inches; at Lennon, Weinberg, it is smaller (63 3/4 x 51 1/8 inches) and untitled. There is nothing ingratiating about these paintings. But Mitchell was not using paint in conventional ways. Hunterian Art Gallery Collections: GLAHA 52297.

Photographie. Richard Long. TURNER. The Web's Largest Art Information Service. Apichatpong Weerasethakul: For Tomorrow For Tonight. This November, UCCA introduces For Tomorrow For Tonight, a new installation by leading Thai film director Apichatpong Weerasethakul that leads visitors through a cinematic narration of night. Night, a time for sleep, darkness and quiet, is the natural space for dreams and desires, a time as the artist says, “when you can’t see and your mind takes over.” Weerasethakul leads us with his subtle language of suggestion to consider a compressed reality of memory and dreams, that is both immediate and infinite.

For Tomorrow For Tonight blends video, images and sound from three of his original films and one sound work to create an intensely lyrical atmosphere. The photographs that accompany the video works allow us to pause and contemplate these “frozen moments”, and the jarring sound evokes the stark contrasts found in contemporary Thailand.
