"In Search of Vanished Blood" by Video Artist Nalini Malani
What is your approach, or strategy, in bringing potent social and political issues into your artistic work?
Well, first it is a passion, and an emotion, that draws me to something. If something strikes me, then I think about the strategy in representing it. But I like to work in several layers. The first layer is beauty – so the audience is attracted, seduced. It’s a kind of anti-Brechtian point of view. It is the door that beckons you in.
But having brought you in, there are other pages that I hope will unfurl and open. And then finally I’d like someone to say, “Oh, the horror of it.” Like in the “Heart of Darkness.” The horror.
This 90s color block grid sweatshirt is super duper cozy and has a very unique look. This sweater continues a pattern on the front and the back, which reminds us of a Rubix Cube if the colors matched up. Looks right out of Full House!

Learning photography has improve my rendering skill a lot. Now I know how to control the aperture, shutter speed, ISO, so I can produce a better 3D image. Like this image for instance.
This is my first attempt to play with the Z-Depth channel to control the depth of field. I'm sure next time I can do better than this.
So, have you had your morning coffee yet? ☕
"View of Delft" Painted by Johannes Vermeer, 1661. Oil on canvas, 3' 3" x 3' 10." Baroque ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ View of Delft is a painting of Vermeer's hometown and is among his most valued works. It is even regarded by some as the most distinguished cityscape of 17th-century Dutch art. Vermeer produced this canvas at a time when cityscapes were not particularly common and it is one of three snapshots of Delft that he painted, along with The Little Street and the lost painting House Standing in Delft. In View of Delft Vermeer paints the city from a southeasterly direction and in the foreground we can see the Schie Canal which runs through the city. The sky is brimming with clouds and looming dark clouds cast a shadow on the water and buildings. The sunshine breaking through highlights the roofs and this adds depth to the painting. View of Delft reflects Vermeer's concept of beauty and the prominent churches could be a subtle reinforcement of Christian morals and values of this time. It could also be that by painting the Old Church in shadow and the New Church in sunlight that he was portraying the city's spiritual growth. This is a very realistic image of Vermeer's birthplace and it almost transports the viewer to the scene as he observed it. His use of lighting is objective and has a photographic quality to it, demonstrating the artist's talent. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ #art#westernart#westernarthistory#western#painting#scultpure#military#militaryhistory#history#follow#guns#weapons#european#renaissance#renaissanceart#museum#modern#modernart#medieval#medievalart#arthistory#gear#reeanactment#quotes#vehicles#neverforget#artist#gallery#artsy#arts
