Revealing Cover for In the Beginning

Here’s the projected cover for In the Beginning, an eBook that will be available very soon.  I’m revealing it in this blog so anyone can make comments or suggestions. Please keep in mind that eventually this book will be available on Amazon, so the cover has to look good as a thumbnail.

In the Beginning tells the story of the experiment that became Post Conceptual Art’s New theory, including UnGraven Image art, and then the discovery of how that art can actually change how people see — and how that new way of seeing seems to fulfill Bible prophesy for the Latter Days.

So that you can see about this for yourself, the eBook of In the Beginning, will be available for free, as a gift during an upcoming Crowd Funding campaign, to fund a larger book and eBook that entitled Genesis. The fastest way to get your free copy and news of the funding campaign so you can have first dibs on the Early Bird and Door Buster rewards (think: original art) is become a member of my newsletter. [ UPDATE: The revised version on this eBook will be available and announced in the winter of 2021-22.]

The art image in the cover is from my Genesis Sunsets and also Duets series, and the sub-series of “Hands”. Here, I am doing a visual duet with Michelangelo’s creation of Adam from the Sistine Chapel. All of my strokes for the sunset are the original letters of Genesis 1-2:7. You will find more on both sunsets, including art and inspiration and a new SHRM Activity in the upcoming ebook.

Romp through Modern & Contemporary Art in What Are You Looking At?

What Are You Looking At? by Will Gompertz is a wonderful romp through the narrative history of art from Impressionism to the present day.

What Are You Looking At? by Will Gompertz Gompertz is an art insider, the former director of London’s Tate Gallery and now the Arts Editor for the BBC. He knows where the bodies — or paintbrushes– are buried. He shares his “secrets” in a gossipy tell-all style laced with with and laugh provoking humor. Art stars of the past 150 years come alive and dry history becomes a stand up comedy routine, which is how this book first began. What Are You Looking At?, began as stand-up comedy at a Fringe Festival. Although funny and irrelevant, Gompertz always manages to pay homage to the great art and artists that populate his pages.

Obviously, the prime audience for this book is people who are interested in art, or want to find out why a dead shark in a tank, a cube, or a canvas filled with drips could fetch such high prices. However, this is also splendid book for entrepreneurs or anyone who is involved with launching a radically new idea in any field because it shows the oft repeated history of innovators.

The history of modern art is populated with people who failed. And failed. They were mocked. They were rejected by those in the establishment. Where mocked. Yet, somehow, the radical innovative artist caught the attention of at least one person, who would support and help propel their ideas, which led to ultimate and great success. These relationships and their anecdotal stories, between artists and other artists (such as Manet and the younger Impressionists or Picasso and Braque),artists and dealers, and artists and collectors that make this book special.

The book takes off from the moment its cover is opened with an impressive and helpful road map–like timeline that elegantly visually shows the innovative, influential artists connected to the next radical (and innovative, influential artists) who they influenced. Even though I knew the history of Modern and Contemporary art, I saw connections in new ways.

Aside being a good gift for artists to give to family and friends who, well, just do not see Contemporary Art as Art, this book is also be a fun and even revealing for those who “know“ art history.

Note: Judy Rey Wasserman only reviews what she likes and is worth sharing with her friends, which includes readers and Twitter followers. This includes art shows, books, movies and sometimes even TV shows that deal with art or artists, or scientific and inspirational topics covered by the blog at artofseeingthedivine.com.

Einstein is the Scientific Grandfather of 21st Century Post Conceptual Art

Albert Einstein is acknowledged as one of humankind’s great scientific geniuses. Regarded as the father of modern physics, Einstein’s theories led to quantum physics and string theory.

Now, in the Twenty-first century his work and ideas have helped inspire a whole new theory of art, Post Conceptual Art, plus a branch called UnGraven Image, founded by Judy Rey Wasserman.

Few are those who see with their own eyes and feel with their own hearts.” — Albert Einstein

This radically new art depicts the strings of elementary physics using symbols as traditional strokes in a painting. Einstein’s contributions to our understandings of wave-particle duality helped point Wasserman to the attributes necessary for symbols that could be used to represent the strings.

Torah font is the only symbol set in the world that is binary (duality), phonic, and alpha-numeric. Based on the science alone, it is the most elegant symbol set available in the world to represent the smallest waves/pre-particles of our universe. Torah font is also the basic and original font of the Bible.

All religions, arts and sciences are branches of the same tree.” —Albert Einstein

The first and introductory video for Post Conceptual Art both quotes Einstein and uses one of his favorite pieces of music from his beloved Mozart for its score. There were actually two other Einstein quotes in the preliminary version. [Note: see the video “Painting with the Big Bang of Genesis” at http://ungravenimage.com]

Joy in looking and comprehending is nature’s most beautiful gift.” — Albert Einstein

Judy Rey Wasserman’s first basic Essence Portrait of Albert Einstein was created according to the tenets of Post Conceptual UnGraven Image Art theory. Each and every stroke is a Torah font symbol (letter) from Genesis 1. This text was specially chosen as it is the primary physics text of the Bible, especially the first few verses. When the Creator says, “Let there be light” the first waves and pre-particles of our universe are created. The Genesis description of initial creation of our universe has much in common with Big Bang theory.

Everything should be as simple as it is, but not simpler.” — Albert Einstein

Genesis 1 (Albert Einstein), 2010, by Judy Rey Wasserman

The basic Essence Portrait of Albert Einstein visually references the dualities by playing strong dark areas opposite white ones.  The dark area is also symbolic for the unknown that Einstein explored.

Since this is a basic Essence Portrait you can expect to see more work by Wasserman based upon this work, but usually using color, photography or video in the future. [Note: for more on the new Essence Portraiture, its place in art history and some initial variations on basic celebrity portraits see: “Essence Portraits—The Art of Seeing the Divine in the Twenty first Century” below this article.]

Beyond science Albert Einstein had much wisdom and humor to share with us. Included here are some of his thoughts and advice have helped inform both how I see the world and my art. Along with other artists these quotes can inspire anyone in any endeavor. So, let’s let Professor Einstein have the last words here.

Albert Einstein quotes:

He who can no longer pause to wonder and stand rapt in awe, is as good as dead; his eyes are closed.”

I want to know all Gods thoughts; all the rest are just details.

Imagination is more important than knowledge.”

Logic will get you from A to B. Imagination will take you everywhere.”

God always takes the simplest way.

Insanity: doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.”

Great spirits have always encountered violent opposition from mediocre minds”.

Strive not to be a success, but rather to be of value.

Post Conceptual Art (May 2008)

Post Conceptual Art marries the concepts of conceptualism with figurative art. The focus is on the strokes – and each stroke is a symbol, usually a letter from a text(s). The strokes are then used, as artists have always used strokes, to create a narrative image.

Thus, Post Conceptual Art unites the two streams of found throughout art history. One, usually considered more Western is representational and logical, using scientific and geometric understandings of perspective and form, perspective, light, anatomy, etc. The opposite stream is often referred to as Eastern and is symbolic, less concerned or not at all concerned with any realism.

The name, Post Conceptual Art specifically refers to contemporary Conceptualism; however the roots of that movement branch back to humankind’s first art.

A quick Google for the words: “opposite of conceptual art,’ turned up the Affordable Art Fair, coming in a couple of weeks to Bristol. Geared at new collectors it offers information about art movements and terms. According to the AAF, “The term figurative is now used as the opposite of abstract or conceptual, and extends to anything that depicts a subject taken from life, be it a landscape, objects (a still life) or the human figure.”

According to Wikipedia, “Conceptual Art is art in which the concept(s) or idea(s) involved in the work take precedence over traditional aesthetic and material concerns.” Thus the concept or idea behind the work is paramount.

In Post Conceptual Art the focus is on the stroke. The stroke is a symbol, and thus an idea, a concept. The concept may add up to create more and more concepts in the work, just as a letter (letters are symbols) can combine with other letters to create a word (thus a new symbol made of symbols) and then sentences, and so on. While the individual symbol-strokes in Post Conceptual Art may be letters that are from attributed texts (such as the Bible, a poem, a quote) or they may be from text’s created by the artist just as Conceptual Artists Lawrence Weiner and Jenny Holtzer create their texts.

However, in Post Conceptual Art the symbols may add up to create the additional meaning of texts the also visually combine to create imagery that may or may not have any obvious reference to the text(s).

Since the focus is on the stroke, whether or not the individual stroke can be seen or is semi or fully covered with other strokes and glazes, then the symbol used for a stroke, or the symbol set selected for a work is of paramount importance. Again, the strokes convey the conceptual significance of the work while also combining to create a figurative work.

Post Conceptual UnGraven Image uses the set of Torah Font letters. Originally the artistic experiment by Judy Rey Wasserman to use this symbol set began based on the Abrahamic theology of all Christians and Jews, whatever branch or denomination that when the Creator speaks the world into existence the letters of those words are the essences of the physical universe. Other attempts to paint the chemical symbols of atoms (nucleus, electrons, photons, etc.,) to somehow form an figurative image revealing the energy that was always present had proven not to be viable. The theology posited the idea of a set of letters that Wasserman thought she could try to use as strokes. At the time of the original experiment, Pissarro, Monet and the Impressionists who strove to paint the light, a specific form of energy were on her mind. The experiment worked, but Wasserman was “translating and inventing ways to use the new symbol-strokes as this was painting in a new way.

Wasserman knew that Hebrew Torah font letters are binary, meaning that each and every letter could be created using combinations of the one or more of two of the letters, yud and vav in the font. [Note: just like English, there are many other Hebrew fonts.] Binary means the Torah font letters not only elegantly serve to represent the strings of elementary physics, but also reference binary applications and concepts in the other sciences and mathematics. Binary is simultaneous for duality, thus important concepts in most of the world’s religions, such as good-evil, yin-yang, and holy-profane, thus adding more reference significance for the symbol-strokes.

Hebrew is a phonetic language, meaning sound vibration is also pictured in the strokes. Physicists describe the strings as energy or pre-matter (depending of the view of the experiment) and energy vibrates, thus also representing sound gives further relevance to the strokes. Plus, the Hebrew alphabet is used as numerals, also.

Is there another set of symbols that can pack this much information and reference, to science, spiritual teachings, sound and literature? So far, no other phonetic binary font has been found in any language. What has been discovered by the artist is that every Torah font letter can be made with one or two brush or pen strokes, something not possible with any font of letters in English, for example.

Post Conceptual Art using Torah font letters for each and every stroke is a renaissance of the origins of art, as it serves to combine the arts, science and spiritual healing.

Archeology, art history and anthropology agree that the original artists were the shamans of the group. They were responsible for the creation of the cave paintings, the masks and the artistic items used in the ceremonies and culture of the group. The shaman was also the basic scientist of the group. Another name for shaman is “Medicine Man/Woman” – a person who was a healer, using both spiritual and medicinal, even perhaps operational techniques, such as tooth pulling, bone setting and removal of objects embedded in a body by accident or warfare. Shamans were also the original physicists. They provided a context for how the world was and is created, linking the cosmos, other dimensions and we gather from aboriginal anthropology, a story about how the world, or physical universe, began. They conveyed their understandings through chants (music), story-telling (literature), and visual art. Their visual art depicts their visions of the universe, visions that were simultaneously about the origins of the world, healing, and spiritual growth.
