Funny thing

Funny thing happened to me yesterday: Says a (real) SOMEBODY to me that, in general, South Africans don’t like new things such as my idea and ‘execution’ of ‘imaginaries’ but that it wonderfully fits in the predicted fashion and other trends for the next 5+ years in Europe and America. ……

Next thing he shows me on his laptop the latest developments in the production of yarns and fabrics and I’m amazed ….

PERCEPTION 2

Recently I posted a picture with the title ‘Perception’. I referred to the book ‘Doors of Perception’ of Aldous Huxley and the classic movie ‘Lawrence of Arabia. This is another imaginary situated against the early morning mountainous backdrop of the emptiness of the Little Karoo in South Africa. And as always with my imaginaries: I’m watching you!

Looking back

One of my first ‘imaginaries’ was created in the period I was still exploring the basics of Photoshop. This morning I tried to alter it a bit but I’m not very satisfied with the color versions. Personally I prefer the B&W. The thumbnail at the bottom is the original of September last year.

Imaginary Street Art 10

Some name it murals most others say it’s graffiti and there are also people who call it street art.

Paintings are perishable and so are wall paintings, graffiti, murals etc. I’m not a painter but I can photoshop a little bit hence my Imaginary Street Art (or is it ‘Imaginary Murals’ etc.?).

I don’t have any illusions; even my imagination is perishable.

This is the last of the imaginaries out of a serie of 10.
