Daily dose of Art- EMPATHICS


EMPATHICS
Originally uploaded by rsconnett
A painting by R.S. Connett recently displayed in Miami. He has a number of fantastic paintings up on Flickr, including this one. The description of this painting is rather long, but begins...

''This painting illustrates some of my fancies about human communication in a higher age of human evolution. I dream of communicating "empathically" through technological enhancements to our abilities. Empathy is superior to telepathy, and certainly to verbal language. It is to communicate with emotion. This would be a grand language! There would be little chance of misunderstanding.''

Some of his stuff is very engaging, I particularly liked the SMALL BANG THEORY--the purple explodey one. He's probably a candidate for Baltimore's Museum of Visionary Art...

Thanks for mentioning that- I remember hearing about that place years ago, but I've never looked into it. I'll go look for it next time I'm in the area.
