Autumn by YuPhotography

I like these birds a lot and so was immediately drawn to this photograph. I realise that for technical reasons the subject had to occup...

Geometric Intermezzo (Part 3) by Einsilbig

This work sits comfortably in its square format with not a trace of tilt or skew, a thing of right angles, muted colours and beauty. It...

The Artefact by TheChanChanMan

What was 'The Excession'? Nobody knew. That was the problem. It was a Galactic scale black swan event, certainly. Seemingly connected t...

Discourse of the analytic by Maurice-Le-Coq

The difficulty in writing a critic is knowing where to begin. This is a grand tribute to the whole history of modern art from cubism to...

Good Friday, 1613. Riding Westward

By John Donne  
    Let mans Soule be a Spheare, and then, in this,
    The intelligence that moves, devotion is,
    And as the other Spheares, by being growne
    Subject to forraigne motion, lose their owne,
    And being by others hurried every day,
    Scarce in a yeare their naturall forme obey:
    Pleasure or businesse, so, our Soules admit
    For their first mover, and are whirld by it.
    Hence is't, that I am carryed towards the West
    This day, when my Soules forme bends toward the East.
    There I should see a Sunne, by rising set,
    And by that setting endlesse day beget;
    But that Christ on this Crosse, did rise and fall,
    Sinne had eternally benighted all.
    Yet dare I'almost be glad, I do not see
    That spectacle of too much weight for mee.
    Who sees Gods face, that is selfe life, must dye;
    What a death were it then to see God dye?
    It made his owne Lieutenant Nature shrinke,
    It made his footstoole crack, and the Sunne winke.
    Could I behold those hands which span the Poles,
    And tune all spheares at once peirc'd with those holes?
    Could I behold that endlesse height which is
    Zenith to us, and our Antipodes,
    Humbled below us? or that blood which is
    The seat of all our Soules, if not of his,
    Made durt of dust, or that flesh which was worne
    By God, for his apparell, rag'd, and torne?
    If on these things I durst not looke, durst I
    Upon his miserable mother cast mine eye,
    Who was Gods partner here, and furnish'd thus
    Halfe of that Sacrifice, which ransom'd us?
    Though these things, as I ride, be from mine eye,
    They'are present yet unto my memory,
    For that looks towards them; and thou look'st towards mee,
    O Saviour, as thou hang'st upon the tree;
    I turne my backe to thee, but to receive
    Corrections, till thy mercies bid thee leave.
    O thinke mee worth thine anger, punish mee,
    Burne off my rusts, and my deformity,
    Restore thine Image, so much, by thy grace,
    That thou may'st know mee, and I'll turne my face.…

We are passionate artists and art lovers with wide ranging tastes and interests. Our long range project is the creation of 'aegian' as an aesthetic hermaphrodite, trying to express the many facets of their being.

While his better half prefers to remain mysterious until she has decided how to start our journal, Mr A admits to having a London degree in Botany & Zoology and owning a succession of film and digital cameras. I am the man behind the lens, so there may not be many images of me submitted. We love beauty and I search for it amongst the mundane backgrounds of everyday reality as well as at fabulous gardens like the ones seen in some gallery pictures.

:fusionrock::fusionrock: :heart: Thank you for the :+fav: on Artifact-Abstraction-

It's unusually good, with a rhythm and feel all of its own. And now, here is your chance to see the 'dream sequence' from STALKER… , of which it reminded me strongly.

Thank you for faving my work!
I watch it all coming in to #AFORABSTRACTION and admire good deal of it. Every so often I might favour a superior sample that I really like personally.

abysmal depth - that's the subtitle of this ever-growing gallery. PROFOUND & Awe-Inspiring. 
The abyss has always held a fascination and terror combined for certain susceptible people, as mentioned in the notes to this piece The Edge Of The World, Mount Lookitthat Void Cliff by aegiandyad , I don't know if you've seen it. Edgar Allen Poe could not leave it alone The Tarn Below Usher House by aegiandyad , his The Fall Of The House Of Usher combines the abyss of madness, of the tomb and of the tarn. Dante mapped its topography The Inferno by aegiandyad and John Martin tried to paint it [cf The Great Day Of His Wrath notes: The Great Day Of His Wrath by aegiandyad . For a fairly complete collection of all my works referencing 'Inferno' you can look here:…
