Derek Jarman´s "Caravaggio": Chiaroscuro, Baroque and the ashes of Pasolini.
#DerekJarman, was a bold and unapologetic filmmaker and artist, highly influenced by Pier Paolo #Pasolini, whose work he emulated in his career. 1.- Image
@Dexfletch 2.-His films, such as "#Caravaggio," pay homage to Pasolini's aesthetic and thematic concerns, while also reflecting his experiences and perspectives as a #gay artist living in #Thatcher's #Britain.
3.-"Caravaggio" is a visually stunning and thematically rich film that remains a highlight of Jarman's career. It is a meditation on the power of #art to transcend time and space, as well as the ephimeral nature of #fame and #celebrity.

Collectors: It's not just about status or money, it's about supporting artists who have invested years into developing their craft. Artists have been overlooked for far too long, yet continue to pour into what they are passionate about. Artists make our world a much better place.
Being an art #collector, whether in #cryptoart, #nft's, traditional #art, or many other art forms - it must primarily stem from a love for beauty, skill, creativity, nature, meaning, and thinking. Great art makes us appreciate, connect, aspire, reflect, and adjust perspectives.
As collectors, we help to recognize these talents in original artwork. Collecting from underrated, undervalued, underappreciated, unknown #artists who display stunning aptitudes for creating is a joy and a privilege, as it communicates to artists that they are valued and seen.

As a non-manga reader who is familiar with the events and the ending of the Attack on Titan's story, here are some of my thoughts which have been asked for so here ya go.

Be civil!


The main problem I see with people disliking the ending is they believe Eren's charcater was wasted.

For me it was the ending that befit his charcater whilst also not disregarding the cruel world they live in. ImageImageImageImage
Eren is a 19 year old who has always been highly emotional to the point he was called edgy. Since childhood he constantly promised to kill all titans, a glimpse into his childish mindset which is kinda psychopathic. He's always loved his friends Armin and Mikasa above all. ImageImageImageImage

Don't look into her eyes! Spectacular opus-sectile mosaic of the Gorgon Medusa covering the entire orchestra of Kibyra Roman theatre in south-west Turkey - unearthed in 2009, the mosaic is still in-situ, 11m across and 95% intact. #Roman #Archaeology #Art #Turkey ImageImageImage
To clarify for all those interested this mosaic has been perfectly preserved for two millennia, created in the 1st-2nd century AD. It is made of segments of differently coloured exotic marbles from around the empire fitted together perfectly, a technique known as opus-sectile. Image
The mosaicist even put glints in Medusa’s eyes! #ancient #art #masterpiece Image

I can't say this enough, lakini it's really important kwangu and I think to any person in the arts who would like to make it sustainable.

This is my thinking, based on observation, learning and experience.
Jana at Blanket or any public space that I interact with people it's always "unatoa project lini? Umepotea wapi?"
Customer based intervention - it's not like doing things for people and what people like/popular at the time but knowing who likes what and why..about your art.
