a collection of photographs, images, paintings, screen-shots- what do they mean?
Do we take each image in its own right?
Link it to one-we prefer? or disdain?
How do we SEE them?
In context, out of context?
Do we see ART?
Do we see the Painting as ART more so than the Photograph? the movie still?
If we know
what-does it make us SEE differently?
How do we see the body in a painting? In a photograph? On the screen?
Are we forced to go beyond the surface to comment of say-the beautiful light, the brushwork, the fame or failure of the artist? Do we linger over the great works on canvas as we do over a great photograph?
I wonder. Say why you like the picture- here at Red Mug, Blue Linen.
