Helen J Young - visions of Nepal - Kintsugi towers

Helen J Young
in July of 2014 (how time flies), Free Planet featured Oxfordshire artist Anna Dillon's exuberantly colourful landscapes.

I'd never seen Anna Dillon's paintings in the flesh, I just random'd upon them in one of my normal everyday internet grazing frenzies. 

Today, the wife and I decided to go for a picnic-walk, and I chose a walk that began at Cholsey (train station) and ended at Didcot (train station) which would take us through the village of Aston Tirrold where Anna Dillon lived, it was her last day of Art Weeks so it seemed opportune. Her work was as vibrant as the artist herself, great to meet her.

We discovered that there were other artists exhibiting under the Art Weeks banner in the village, so 'when in Rome'... my personal favourite was the (abstract) work of Helen J Young whose paintings were based on a recent trip to Nepal. This twenty or so paintings are mostly white-n-blue but the layering/texturing/rendering/ripping of the paint she uses is key to the form's success.


The edges of Young's three red Nepal abstracts caught the light like Mark Rothko's Seagram Murals... and her clay (Didcot Power Station) towers that we talked about, smashed and repaired with gold using the ancient Japanese technique called 'kintsugi' are also charming. Both below...

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.
