JAMAL’S EMPTY CHAIR

~Jamal Khashoggi’s Daughters~

We promise his light will never fade

“his legacy will be preserved within us”

Noha Khashoggi and Razan Jamal Khashoggi are the daughters of Jamal Khashoggi

Jamal Khashoggi’s daughters write for The Post

After the events of Oct. 2, our family visited Dad’s home in Virginia.

The hardest part was seeing his empty chair. His absence was deafening. We could see him sitting there, glasses on his forehead, reading or typing away. As we looked at his belongings, we knew he had chosen to write so tirelessly in the hopes that when he did return to the kingdom, it might be a better place for him and all Saudis.

This is no eulogy, for that would confer a state of closure.

Rather, this is a promise that his light will never fade, that his legacy will be preserved within us. Baba said it best:

“Some depart to remain,” which rings true today. We feel blessed to have been raised with his moral compass, his respect for knowledge and truth, and his love.

Until we meet again in the next life.

‘Your Body is My Canvas’ …. “🎨 Alexa Meade, American Installation Artist 🎨 …. “!!

ALEXA MEADE

WHAT A DISCOVERY!

I just found Alexa Meade today. It’s a treat for my senses.

A reprieve from daily life.

Amazing talent!

RedLineBAlexa Meade (born 1986) is an American Installation Artist best known for her portraits painted directly onto the human body and inanimate objects in a way that collapses depth and makes her models appear two-dimensional when photographed. What remains is “a photo of a painting of a person, and the real person hidden somewhere underneath.”

She takes a classical concept – trompe l’oeil, the art of making a two-dimensional representational painting look like a real three-dimensional space – and turns it on its head by doing the opposite, making real life appear to be a painting.

~Wikipedia~

RedLineB~~Your Body is My Canvas~~

~~Published on Sep 6, 2013~~

Alexa Meade takes an innovative approach to art. Not for her a life of sketching and stretching canvases. Instead, she selects a topic and then paints it – literally. She covers everything in a scene – people, chairs, food, you name it – in a mask of paint that mimics what’s below it.

In this eye-opening talk Meade shows off photographs of some of the more outlandish results and shares a new project involving people, paint and milk.

THE STORY BEHIND THIS DOOR 

De luto la bandera puertorriqueña en San Juan
La icónica enseña amaneció pintada de blanco y negro

~Julio 5, 2016~

Como una metáfora de lo que ocurre en el País, así se puede calificar el cambio de los colores de la icónica bandera de Puerto Rico que desde hace más de tres años engalana una de las puertas de la calle San José, en el Viejo San Juan, y que esta mañana apareció pintada de blanco y negro.

“…. captures the pain felt by Puerto Ricans on the island …. “

After PROMESA ….

It’s going to be a bumpy ride!

HortyRex©

By Andrew S. Vargas

 In San Juan’s historic center there is a giant colonial door bearing an image of the Puerto Rican flag.

Known appropriately as “La Puerta de la Bandera,” the mural boldly asserts its presence from the side of an abandoned historical building on a busy commercial strip, where on any given day a gaggle of tourists flashing peace signs can be found taking turns at photos.

Since it was first painted by local artist Rosenda Álvarez four years ago with permission from the building’s owner, La Puerta has emerged as an emblematic fixture of Old San Juan and a symbol of national identity.

Several weeks ago, surprised visitors and residents of San Juan were greeted by a somber black-and-white re-imagining of the island’s beloved red, white, and blue bandera.

While Álvarez’s latest work seems to evoke a mood of patriotic mourning, Boricuas might also recognize parallels with the defunct Puerto Rican Nationalist Party’s spare black-and-white cross.

For his part, the building’s owner was originally unaware of the changes, but he has since expressed his full support for Álvarez’s decision. The general public, however, was more divided, with some even trying to mobilize fellow islanders to repaint the flag.

IOTD” is image of the day, a concept I came up with. I teach visual meditative therapy – or in easy terms – a mini mental holiday. For some people it is very difficult for them to get their image right. I post an image a day for people to use in their mini mental vacay. Some are serious, some are silly, and some are just beautiful!”

THE MAYA CELLO 

We wanted to give another shout out to Juleez for painting this incredible cello.

She does amazing work!

“Prolific” “Amazing Color” “Truly Unique” “Mesmerizing and Compelling”

These words and phrases that are often heard describing Borden’s work. A master of color and creating astounding combinations using them, is one of Borden’s trademarks of her artwork.

Julie Borden earned her BFA from the renowned, The Rochester Institute of Technology. To date, Julie has completed more than 700 commissioned works of art.

This artist is truly a testament to the statement, “Art has no boundaries”.
