Palliativity 163: Lost – Amanda Palmer

Posted on September 13, 2012

nothing’s ever lost forever it’s just caught inside the cushions of your couch
and when you find it you’ll have such a nice surprise

nothing’s ever lost forever it’s just hiding in the recess of your mind
and when you need it it will come to you at night

no one’s ever lost forever when they die they go away
they will visit you occasionally do not be afraid

no one’s ever lost forever they are caught inside your heart
if you garden them and water them they make you what you are.

Palliativity 157: Monsters & Men

Posted on July 5, 2012

There's an amazing moment that happens for me when someone really gets my work. I don't have to explain anything: themes, style, references, or forgotten histories. This can occur in many forms: online thru comment threads, live in a gallery, or when I am entranced by the work of another artist who is speaking my visual language.

Of Monsters and Men's psychedelically surreal music video for their song Little Talks:

Hit "Replay". You know you want to ; )

Palliativity 141: We are the Future

Posted on February 8, 2012

When I started this art-blog adventure, I didn't know where I was headed. I knew that no matter where my art took me, I was on the right path; a ronin at the crossroads.

"Occupied: the Art of War" was a battle with my own identity and family history of loss, displacement and cultural survival in a world that would rather forget.

When the Tsunami struck last year and Japan crumbled in an atomic haze, I learned that history happens when you least expect it. Lessons from my family and my studies crystalized out of the aether; I knew that I had been training for that moment all of my life. We must pick up the pieces and breath life once again into the old; dredging up our lives from beneath the deluge. Thus was born the series "Tsunami 2011".

"Apocalypto Neuveau" is where I find my path these days. It's not about history but rather the living memory we all keep inside our hearts. A wish and a kiss in prayer under cesium winter skies. I am no longer alone. All of you have joined me in this collective cry to remember what binds us together : Hope and Memory.

Fight the Future, Save the Past.
