Abstract Art..........................Abstract Expressionist.................Expressionism.............Could Even Throw In Conceptual Art, Process Art, Non Objective Art, Non Representational Art, Others.............(Other--Like That).....Well Past The Point Now That Such Words Have Any True Meaning Or Validity..............(Besides, Must Put Something On These Pages To Keep The Search Engine Robots Satisfied).....No, Will Leave Words, Categorization, To Those Who Take Pleasure In Such Things............Energy And Thought Behind The Fluid Process Of Creation Are The Only Things Of Import Or Concern.........If Icon has Any Value At All, It Is The Reflection Of Evolving Energy Behind That Image.........Energy Of Thought Is Creation

20110924_158.jpg-Contemporary Artist-Environmental
Recent Study - 2011-9

It Is 2050 And 9-12 Billion People Inhabit Earth(True Number No Longer Applicable For Any Suitable Purpose)......Sea Levels Have Risen 8 Inches So Far, Forcing Millions Inland............To.........Areas Which Cannot Sustain Further Growth.................Further Rises Are On The Horizon, Creating A Certainty That The Entire 40 Percent Of Humans Living Along Coastal Areas Will Have To Migrate To The Interior........Temperatures Are Rising Globally, Droughts Are Widespread And Spreading...........Famine Is Becoming The Norm, Disease Widespread, Hunger, Malnutrition And Starvation Affecting Well Over Half The Population.............Amazingly, This Scenario Will Shift From A Distinct Possibility To A Probability If We Do Not Take Immediate Measures To Correct Our Negative Impact On This Planet

Truths--World Without Art

20110924_10.jpg- Louisiana Abstract Artist
Recent Study - 2011-9

Not A lot Of Time Left..............Must Reverse Our Negative Impact On This Planet..........So Many  Species(Billions, In Fact) Have Come And Gone Through The Millions Of Life Years On This Planet........Those That Are Gone Could Not Adapt Or Change To Natural Conditions Or Events........But At Least, To My Knowledge, Extinction Was Not Of Their Doing.......In Our Case, Extinction, If We Do Not Quickly Change, Will Be Of Our Own Making..........We Do Have A Brain Which Can Direct Us Successfully Through Nature's Changes(Even Now)..........If We Would But Listen To What Nature Is Telling Us Through Her Many Reactions To Our Environmental Abuse.........If We Don't, Our Tenure Here Will Mark Us As One Of The Least Successful Species Ever..............So Much For Brains..............Could Learn A Lot From The Not So Lowly Mayfly............Been Here 400 Million Years And Counting!

p8040063.jpg-Abstract Painting- Creative Evolution
Recent Study - 2012-8

Imperative Of Re-Invention..............A Must For Our Species...........We Continue On A Lateral Aberrant Path.........Must Return To That Clearly Defined Path Of Growth And Development..............As All Successful Things In Nature...........Must Give Up Some Of The Things So Dear To Us--Massive Consumption, Greed, Competition To Excess, Endless Other Patterns Which So Clearly Define Our Species........Really Would Be Giving Up Nothing But Shallowness Of Empty And Unfulfilled Presence........Simply Existing, However Briefly, However Long..........Not That Difficult To Achieve, This Re-Invention.........A Matter Of Constant Awareness..............A Matter Of Reacting Positively And With Thought To That Awareness

Silent Perspectives -- Art And Environment

20110924_154.jpg- Contemporary Expressionist-Feral
Recent Study - 2011-9

United Nations Estimates Are That Africa Lost About 23 Million Hectares(About 2.5 Acres) Of Forest In The 1980's And Another 20 Million In The 1990's................A Recent Report Notes That Africa's Deforestation, 0.4 to 0.7 Percent Annually, Is Probably An Underestimate.............(Satellites Apparently Have Difficulty Distinguishing Between Human Changes And Seasonal Changes..............It Is A Problem Throughout The World.....How Does One Tell People Not To Cut Wood For Heating And Cooking And Small Crops And Indeed Money To Barely Live On?..................We Are The Solution...........We Can(Must) Provide The Basic Needs Of These Individuals.........They Are Faced WIth The Dilemma Of Survival...............If We Take Care Of That Basic Need, Forest Regeneration Will Happen, And, Quickly

p6020096.jpg- Children Of The Sun
Recent Study - 2012-6

Let's Hear It For Poison Ivy!...............Seems The Magnificent Vine Is Flourishing In Indigenous Areas Because Of Its' Fondness For Carbon Dioxide.........Another Of The Multitude Of Ways Nature Takes Care Of Herself..........In The Long Run Preventable  Global Warming Will No Longer Be A Problem For Nature........She Will Have Taken Care Of The Problem And Its' Cause

20110924_54.jpg- Lyrical Abstraction-Natural Logic
Recent Study - 2011-9

Amazing...........A Few Countries Are Paying People To Have Children To Aid Faltering Economies.........Shouldn't We, As A Global Community, Step In And Offer The Resources And The Aid(Both In Plentiful Supply) Necessary For The Development Of The Affected Countries Without Resorting To The Now Extreme Measure Of Population Growth?......Indeed, Wouldn't It Be Wise For The Global Community To Offer Stipends(At Least Until Population Growth Is Stabilized At Acceptable Levels) To People Not To Have Children(Or At Least No More Than One)?..........That Is Exactly How Serious The Problem Is..........But There Are Solutions...........Solutions Which Are Derived Of Global Agreement And Cooperation

p8030010.jpg- Neo Expressionism - Feral Image
Recent Study - 2012-8

That Marvelous Movement Of Color And Formed And Formless And Tone And Texture(Or Lack Thereof).........Total Absorbtion Into Something As Simple As A Few Strokes Of Paint(Or Whatever) On A Surface.................Total Absorbtion Into Something Else................Dimension Even

may26_12_01.jpg- Non Representational Art
Recent Study - 2014-5

We Are Presently Witnessing The Most Important Events That Have Ever Faced Our Species..........Yes, Repeatedly, They Are Events of Our Own Doing...............Yes, Repeatedly, They Are Events Which Were And Still Are Preventable And Reversible............Yes, Repeatedly, They Are Events Which Are Soon To Reach A Point, If Corrections Are Not Made, That Indeed Will Bring A Void Of Darkness And Emptiness To This Earth Which Will Surpass Any Of The Previous Five Catastrophic Episodes

Yet Another Study(Add To The List)..........Earth Is Hottest It Has Been In "At Least" 400 Years................O.K............So.........We Know The Studies................We Know The Causes(Us).............We Know The Effects.................So.....................So Why Aren't We (Expletives Deleted) Doing Something About It!?

p1303063.jpg- Contemporary Southern Artist
Recent Study - 2012-1

It Was This Time Last Year That I Was Writing Of Coming "Events" On These Pages..............Had No Idea That A Year Later I'd Still Be Cleaning Up Katrina's Mess........No Need Any Longer To Write Of Natural Events Which Lay On The Horizon.........They Are Going To Occur...........In Many Means And Methods...........Locally, And, Globally.............Any Point, Any Time...............Intensity Of Events Will Increase And Will Further Increase As We Continue Our Assault On This Splendid Little Earth.............Of Course At Some Point It Will Abate...........(After "Cause" Is Obliterated)...........Only Remaining Question Then Will Be "What Is Left" For Nature To Rebuild From?

p2140057.jpg-Contemporary Artist - Environmental
Recent Study - 2013-2

....Off To The Necessity Of Invention, Re-Invention........Creation, Re-Creation...........It Is The Imperative Of Species, Nature......Not To Evolve And Grow Is The Eternal Drought Of Emptiness And Ultimate Exclusion

may26_45_01.jpg- Fractionalization
Recent Study - 2014-5

Aeons Ago, When I Was Doing Photography Exclusively, I Could "Do No Wrong".............Showing All Over The County, Collections, Museums, All That Other Stuff That Now Makes Little Sense..............Sure, Nice View Camera Work, Nicely Printed(Archivally, Of Course) By The Current Standards Of The Way A Photograph Should Appear.........The Imagery?--"Knock Off Work"--In The Tradition Of Weston, White, Evans, Strand And A Host Of Others.............Ego Was "Flying"........Thought I Was The Hottest Thing Since Sliced Bread..............Don't Know Exactly What The Catalyst Was, But Things Changed..............Almost Overnight...............Thus Began The "True" Journey...........Exploration Of The Many Unknowns(And Not "Self" But The Whole!), A Deeper Commitment To Nature And use Of Just About Any Material That Came To Mind...........In An Instant, I Was Liberated......From..........Fear Of Unknown.................For Absence Of Fear Is Freedom
