SALVADOR DALI and the DIVING SUIT - Mary E. Martin

SALVADOR DALI and the DIVING SUIT - Mary E. Martin | Art, Literature and Philosophy | Scoop.it
Back stage with Dali, it was as if he couldn’t see me and—given the oddities of time travel, perhaps he couldn’t.

More time travel in SyberSpace? A surreal experience when Dali lies gasping on the stage.

Spirituality of the ineffable which, to me, has a spooky air of mystery and magic to it. | Art, Literature and Philosophy | Scoop.it
We hear lots of talk about spirituality but what is it—really? Probably everyone has some definition—so here is mine just for me. Of course, it’s yours if you like it. Spirituality is that search for something I can rarely see. But somehow I’m convinced that a hint of something meaningful lies beneath, beyond or behind …

SPIRITUALITY IN ART ~MARK ROTHKO - Mary E. Martin

SPIRITUALITY IN ART ~MARK ROTHKO - Mary E. Martin | Art, Literature and Philosophy | Scoop.it
An old woman, seemingly in another dimension, appears and then disappears in a moment. Didn’t she have a message? It’s very odd, very ambiguous and strange.
Mary E. Martin's insight:

Have you ever been so moved by a painting or other work of art—perhaps reading a passage in a novel—that you wept? Many have been so affected by MARK ROTHKO’S art work that they have wept exclaiming at the depth of the spiritual experience. I’m looking into the connection between spirituality, creativity and art of any kind.
