Trent Jaklitsch - Alyssa Monks - TONE

Free Planet has featured the photorealism gone painterly works of Alyssa Monks before. Now, film maker Trent Jaklitsch has created an indulgent sensual lingering piece called TONE that reinforces Alyssa's claim that it's, "All about the paint," and not necessarily just about the photo-realistic depiction of a moment.

TONE is mesmerising stuff that demonstrates the vast range of painterly techniques involved in Alyssa's emotiono-realistic paintings.

You like my new word: Emotionorealistic?

and then Jaklitsch's earlier piece on Alyssa herself, and her newer work. The incidental music at the start and end of this vignette is Spiegel im Spiegel by Arvo Pärt. The cinematic skills, the control of light and shade, the sculptural stillness on show LITERALLY brought tears to this blogger's eyes.

Alyssa Monks is a painter living and working in Brooklyn, NY. After years of painting figures behind steam covered glass and water, she is going Outside to paint something different. [source TRENT JAKLITSCH]

Alyssa Monks has an INSTAGRAM page, if you want to stay abreast of all her latest (looser (landscape)) pieces.

Wallace Thornhill - The A-Z of Electric Universe - forthcoming new book...

eleven years ago, (American mythologist) David Talbott and (Australian scientist) Wallace Thornhill brought out their seminal and eponymous book on the Electric Universe.

The thing about Wal and David's co-authored EU-book is it drew together mythology and science in a totally unique way that (iff valid-ified) will TOTALLY REWRITE how Science looks at fundamental issues like The Age of the Solar System, how it was formed, and what our Alien Sky might have looked like to early man - with illustrations peppered throughout written/carved history to back it up.
I just got word from Wal that (while this 2007-published book won't be updated for a more Electric Universe-friendly audience/academic community) he is working on a new book he's tentatively titled THE A-Z OF ELECTRIC UNIVERSE.

Excited as me? Not even possible, my friend....

Electric Universe - charge exchange reaction - outer planets of the solar system

Prior to starting today's blog, I'd like to note that, "Iff electric boundary layers in plasma sheaths of these star-forming Birkeland Currents actually exist," then it safely demonstrates how and where planets orbit their star. Plasma sheath layers = orbits, and should become more off-plane as the outer planets are allowed to orbit a 'fatter' orbit potential in the solar polar vector.

Q: can large electric fields power Jupiter's super-massive auroras?

...of the seven episodes out of a planned 'ten reasons the universe is electric' this might be the most important one yet... it really makes the case for An Electric Universe that modern science is SIMPLY IGNORING... at the moment.

Time to watch, again or for the first time,  David Talbott's 2013 lecture Exposing the Myths of Settled Science.

art - mike philbin - black, black, paint it black...

yeah, I know, "Black's the new black," all over again. Swings and roundabouts. Once more round the sun, dear art friends.

But here's what started it.

And here's the most recent Black'd Work, with the addition of metallic silver conversing with metallic gold.
