Consciousness and Fine Art with James Tunney

Post by Soul_of_Shu »

Well worth a look for the artistically inclined, this highly illustrated and fascinating conversation covers the artwork of Hildegard of Bingen, Jean-Michel Basquiat, Andy Worhol, Carl Jung, Francis Bacon, Frank Auerbach, Norman Rockwell, Paul Cézanne, Glorianna Houghton, Édouard Manet, Georges Seurat, Hilma af Klint, Wassily Kandinsky, Francisco Botticini, Leonardo da Vinci, Filippo Brunelleschi, William Blake, Gino Severini, Sir Joshua Reynolds, Jack Yeats, Oskar Kokaschka, Franc Marc, Max Beckmann, Sean Scully, Ian Fairweather, August Macke, Piero della Francesca, and Nicholas Roerich – as well as Tunney's own work. Special emphasis is placed on expressionism in painting.

Here out of instinct or grace we seek
soulmates in these galleries of hieroglyph and glass,
where mutual longings and sufferings of love
are laid bare in transfigured exhibition of our hearts,
we who crave deep secrets and mysteries,
as elusive as the avatars of our dreams.
