Mike Philbin - Dichotomy Paintings - one death, five new births

May 13th 2016
R.I.P.


let's call it one death, it's actually the three 100x50cm canvases above, this set of three... I'd already destroyed a set of three 100x50cm four-colour'd paintings. I'd already destroyed a set of three 40x60cm three-colour'd paintings. It's been a while since I looked at my paintings and thought, "Yeah, you'll have to go in the next cull."

I realised there was something wrong with the above set of three, INSTANTLY, because I'd tried too hard to Thinky Them into existence, little sketches and measurements and everything, "I know what I was trying to do when I created them but I really fucking hate them, with a passion." Now they're gone. Axed them after breakfast and coffee. Good riddance. Their replacements will be more relevant to the Family, less contrived.

The five new births are a radical departure from the safe world of dark-light left-right I'd gifted myself, they break the borders, they show canvas between the two worlds, they're all 60x40cm and they're dangerous and I love them. In fact, the fifth of these images convinced me how bad the above three were, hence this new post.

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.
