“It is better to conquer yourself than to win a thousand battles. Then the victory is yours. It cannot be taken from you, not by angels or by demons, heaven or hell.” The Buddha
IN the context of the even heavier burden of hope BEING placed on Barack Obama and, Rahm Emanuel's statement, as Obama's Chief of Staff elect, that … ” You NEVER WANT a serious crisis to go to waste ” IT IS NOT just encumbant on Barack Obama to take individual responsibility of ACTION in the face of CRISES that have come home to roost, BUT … THE COLLECTIVE RESPONSIBILITY of the people to TAKE ACTION in support of the best EXAMPLE of ACTION of their LEADER … IF we are to implement A NEW MODEL, which Robert Peston says we so badly need.
PERCEPTION IS indeed THE MEDIUM
Bridget Riley is about the changes - progressive, sometimes abrupt, sometimes apparently disastrous - that can take place in a given situation.
The situation is presented in the simplest possible terms
John Russell - Sunday Times - September 1963
One of the most distinctive characteristics of Bridget Riley's art is that it "insists" with such concentration that it changes sensory response into something else. The experience which Riley offers is closely related to the expression of emotion or, more exactly, to the creation of visual analogues for sharply particularized states of mind. The very intensity of the assault which her painting makes on the eye drives it, as it were, past the point at which it is merely a matter of optical effect. It becomes acute physical sensation, apprehended kinesthetically as mental tension or mental release, anxiety or exhileration, heightened self-awareness or heightened awareness of unfamiliar or even alien states of being. Bridget Riley Catalogue introduction - David Thompson Venice Biennale, June 1968
ITS these very processes of life - that have to be understood and acknowledged -
before we can awaken to the fact that we are on the journey and committed to continuing
the journey until WE awaken yet again to being fully enlightened -
and in so doing START ALL OVER in the NEW beginning !
