Mobile Photography & Art – Flickr Group Showcase – 15 April 2018

Share

Urgently contemporary, this weeks mobile photography and art flickr group showcase is a huge thrill and I know all about thrills. This week I chatted with a friend, one I’ve not seen for such a long time. The most charming man, the most fragrant and also the most generous. Slipping back into rambling conversations about, art, photography and sex, we absorbed and absolved one another as we nudged the English language to its limits. Art as in life, is about desire and the mobile photographers and artists that we have featured in this weeks showcase, have satiated mine. There’s real humanity in this showcase, with insights into love and longing with the under current narrative, stimulating and deeply rewarding. Enjoy!

I didn’t know I was even supposed to HAVE issues until I came to America”, a quote from a book I am currently reading – Americanah by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie. A fearless contemporary construction about immigration, racism, American dreams and love. Adichie has the unique ability to meticulously and deeply humanise language, capturing a familiar plot but making it fresh. I read vast ranges of books, never fixating on a genre. I am the same when studying photography and art. I’m influenced by and interested in artists who break rules about genre. I’m interested in images with multiple levels that repay close inspection, ensuring I go to unexpected places. A coherent image makes me suspicious, I prefer faltering because it’s in those wobbles that I see the chafing and the uneasiness, the sketchiness of thought and vision. When viewing demiurgic imagery, I am intellectually and creatively and sometimes erotically wired. Constructing a book is similar to creating an image, it’s knowing what to include as well as omit. Allowing the viewer space to complete the construction, in their own imagination, constraining the compulsion of the artist to complete. Sculptors address the deletion of material in their own analogous way. Michelangelo: “The more the marble wastes, the more the statue grows”.

Luminous throughout, this weeks Mobile Photography and Art Showcase is essential to your weekend viewing, smacking of indulgence but then as artists, viewing art, can never been seen as overindulgence, it’s the intensity of these pleasures that raise not only our emotional temperature but our physical temperature too. There’s plenty of heat in this showcase of desire, a hybrid of art, music and cinematic crowning climax. The presentation is elegant and dynamic enough as a form of expressive choreography, high voltage moments blended with reflective contemplation, suggesting there’s much at stake, enjoy!

The past only comes back‘, wrote Virginia Woolf in her unfinished memoir, “when the present runs so smoothly that it is like the sliding surface of a deep river. Then one sees through the surface to the depths“. I confess, I am a huge fan of Virginia Woolf, the English writer who is considered to be one of the foremost modernists of the twentieth century and essentially (to me) a pioneer in the use of stream of consciousness as a narrative device. I ‘discovered’ Woolf’s work as a young girl, long before my eldest son attended boarding school, in Lewes, where she died, drowning herself in the River Ouse, not far from her home. Woolf above all was a pioneer for women, she is a reminder to us all that we must follow our creative urges, we must make up for the time lost (essentially in the West), where we are now freed. One of the many things I love about mobile photography and art, is that women are owning it. I am not against male work at all but I love, the freedom it gives to women, and men are adoring us, even more for it. The creative coalescing between all of our work makes for a richer, deeper picture. We speak to each other, through our imagery, We are all part of this powerful show and how it plays on, rejoice!

“Mercy is radical kindness. Mercy means offering or being offered aid in desperate straits. Mercy is not deserved. It involves forgiving the debt, absolving the unabsolvable. Mercy brings us to the miracle of apology, given and accepted, to unashamed humility when we have erred or forgotten”. This is a quotation from a new book I have been reading this week by Anne Lamott. I have several of her books and enjoy reading them over and over, this one entitled ‘Hallelujah Anyway’, is just perfect for Easter Day and for our Mobile Photography & Art showcase. You see, mobile imagery is created by some of the most wonderful artists, living today, in our world. So many of these artists cast doubts to their talents and they should not. Whenever I am lucky enough to talk with these artists in person, I feel it. The most important thing and I say it time after time, is to believe in yourself, in your abilities and to be kind to yourself. Life, this life, is not a competition. It’s not about winning the next one, or being in the next exhibition, it’s nice when it happens, if you want it to but don’t centre on that. Have mercy on yourself and on others and let your talents shine through.  I will see it, whether I’m representing a competition or not, I will see your work, keep going, do not stop but rest and take a break when you need to. Keep paying attention and feed your souls.

Happy Easter!

When I was a young girl, one of my great pleasures was creating plays with my best girlfriend. When I say ‘plays’, perhaps they would be better described as audio recordings, on cassette tape, like a radio show. Rachel and I would spend hours on the scripts and each take on multiple roles within the same recording. It was not just due to economic necessity that we each played multiple parts, it was also hugely fun. These plays were complex and sophisticated and allowed us to express all the emotions we had building inside us, from outside sources.  With today’s technology, it’s so much easier to turn turn narration into surreal fantasy sequences. Our mobile photography and art flickr group showcase, that we publish every single Sunday, boasts footage from still photographs turned into video footage, it builds and builds to a heightened series of impressions, giving an intensity and visual fortitude that can’t be found elsewhere. This is a technique that will make many viewers slink into pure fantasy, full meditation, pure bliss. Each image represents a performance, as this video rolls you will realise authentic emotion, in our current world, where over-analysis negatively impacts so much of our pleasure, this insanely brilliant format allows you to binge on creativity.

Enjoy!

As I crashed spectacularly to the ground from my mountain bike early this morning, I was reminded of a dear friend talking to me about resilience. Not that I need reminding, I have met with enough adversity in my life to know that this is a psychological trait buried deeply into my psyche. There was nothing to do, I picked myself back up, swung my leg over the cross-bar, dropped a few gears and I pushed myself up the climb, I stood over my bike and I powered up that hill. The word ‘resilience’ derives from the Latin for ‘to jump again’.  Mobile Photography and Art requires resilience, there is no shortcut to sustainability and to sustain it, is a difficult task. You all pull it off, with your incredible talent, boundless enthusiasm and inventiveness. Ultimately, it is not just about individuals, it is about all of us, as one, we all affect one another, as we regulate our emotions, fulfilment is what keeps us coming back. Enjoy!
