Hawaii Museum of Art
Hiding in the Shadows
Back in the day, there was Truth, Honor, Beauty, and Freedom.
That was the Romantic Ideal.
And Modernism killed all that.
In Modernism, everything is Art.
The only question: Is it good Art?
Well, punk. Is it?
Diffraction of Being
Temporary Exhibit: Hand Shadow on Wall. Industrial Light and Gypsum.
Age industrial hum of the creaky AC added to the angst of the moment as
the intermittent clink of the fan bushing created an unsettling aura
that disturbed one's very essence of being. And even
the normally tranquil hand blown glass on display rattled in
reverb as it took on the role of an impromptu megaphone
destined to echo the horrors and destruction that the modern world
had wrought to the land.
Mixed Media: Spot Lighting on Wood Gallery Floor with Assorted Shoe Leather & Scuff
this piece, the artist (and that would be me) tries to monetize his
existence. Not just a desperate cry for attention and help, but
an earnest plea for your hard earned
cash as well. Signed copies available in the lobby. Limited
Digital Prints on order by phone. Angling ever upward, the notion
that a person's progress is a spiral progression is questioned.
As one asks: If the focus leads off page, where does it
(Exhibit Temporarily Removed for Cleaning)
Self Portrait in Glass
In this piece, the artist questions the notion of knowing and being and the distance to the self.
You Say Potato, I Say...
In which the artist asks: Is it Art?
Well, if you got this far down the page, it is.
So, um, Yea! I enjoyed my time at the Hawaii State Art Museum (spelled with a Hawai'i these days, if you please).
10AM-4PM except for Sundays (check Internet listings as hours are subject to change).
Oh, and did I mention? Admission is free!
