Franz Klein_Turin 1969
Salvedor Dali_The Persistence of Memory 1932
Mark Rothko_Black on Maroon 1959
If you “gentle readers” haven’t watched the video or glanced at the links following the artist’s name, you will miss the concept.
The stone house is located in a area called Vogal Flats off of Big Tujunga road. All the stone cabins were torched in the Station Fire. When we were leaving the interior of the cabin (while filming) we looked down and saw the clock. Thats all team Pasadena Adjacent needed. “The Persistence of Memory” was our art history instructors favorite painting to use in espousing his theories. You may remember him; Danny Danashavari PhD. He was the commenter on our last post who explained our epistological breakdown
We had my concept. The images made my case.
Love this…I can’t wait to see the film sequence.
The last one is really funny.
Did you ever see the documentary on Rothko that aired on PBS in the early ’80s. That’s when I learned about him…and saw a painting locally (but where) that I just loved.
Look what I came across while searching Norton Simon’s site:
http://www.nortonsimon.org/collections/highlights.php?period=20H&resultnum=287 – He had us do all these chicken wire sculptures (1979/80) and talked about how for a time he worked on ordinary objects in unconventional use and appearing to defy gravity.
He published a book with phrases in shapes…CIRCULAR REASONING spelled out in a circle.
Good use of the title too.
Very smart title , your video is very impressive, mainly that clock detail there!Beautiful!
By the way, thanks so much for your gentle visit in our Bonjour Luxembourg and about your comment, in fact I could not understand that English word “hoot” ( your wrote : the bronze sculpture piece is a hoot).As my English is not good, I must confess ( my mother language is Portuguese and now I’m trying to learn French here ), I could not understand the meaning.
Anyway, I hope you liked that picture in my blog.
Your blog is wonderful, congratulations!I’m enchanted by your beautiful posts here!
Wonderful connections. Amazing to find the clock; plus that burned out shell of a house has a face.
(If Leia knows as little French as I, she might be satisfied with “drole.”)
Does life imitate art or does art imitate life.
This series is so cool and proves, once and for all, that your artistic eye never rests.
Ditto de above video commentators, PA. I like the video of those ruins. Except it was somewhat ruined by the persistent munching of someone in it. So, I’m left wundering what they were eating. Sorry, butt us K9’s are easily distracted when we feel food is around.
I’m going to second Susan. This is very impressive. I’m going to think about this for a while.
A little paint, some new curtains…
(Was the clock really already there??)
I love this post, yes ma’am.
I always think about your posts for a while. I can’t get big woman out of my mind…
This one is visually beautiful and very engaging. The surroundings look a lot like central Texas.
I love the Rothco reference. He is a favorite of mine.
I didn’t see Klein’s or Dali’s names at first.
I have the theory that great artists cause us to see through their eyes. Your post validates that!
did this make anyone else cry?
or maybe, no one else is perimenopausal.
love this, PA, fascinating connections, haunting documentation
What a nice cabin it must have been at one time. Who owns the land?

Was this your talking about a reasent burn sight? Seems they have been systematically burning everything down. Mining mountains…I think we are past the end of the world. Momma’s gonna flip. (new Equators)
I dreamed a sea urchin dream two nights ago…premonission: tital wave..(So America?)
The Field Team of Pasadena Adjacent visited the burned area May 16th and recorded the event. Most of the bured area pictured in the slide show is from the rim of Charleton Flats campground. Exceptions being the Chilao camp green entrance and Nature Center (most of the campground south is toast) The center of green of Charleton Flats is the old growth pines that were saved (bark photos). I thought the fire stopped at Newcombs Ranch but this is not true. We went past Newcombs Ranch onto a road descending into Horse Flats campground at the base of Mount Hilyar. The area appears to be burned. The fire traveled up the dirt road called the Santa Clara divide.
There are plans on returning where the Team left off. Maybe today.
the slide show
I knew you couldn’t wait to go back. That slide show is quite a documentary. I’ll return for further viewing.
I love this.
The slide show made me cry.
