KEY BULLET POINTS FOR Ardor—Armor—Armoire
-Aesthetics of Magick/occult mysticism etc.
-For the record, I don't believe that Magick/Supernatural stuff is like, TRUE about the universe. But I have enthusiasms for the VIBES—the aesthetic effects that are formed when thought structures become imaginary and unreasonable: magical thinking! Aye——and how vivid and real these effects can be..
-I think some key points pertaining to OOO relate to my feelings about this :)
-I wanted to show myself how I truly felt about the set-design/architecture in the movie SUSPIRIA
-By approaching my feelings about some of the architectural shapes in Dario Argento's SUSPIRIA, as well as the moody bedroom set-design of its villian, the evil witch Helena Markos; I wanted to discover resonances within my own natural humors and enthusiasms for SUCH MAGICKAL GEOMETRY AND GREAT SETS——BY MAKING THIS ARMOIRE SCULPTURE ANX ACCOMPANYING PAINTINGS W/SAND, LED CANDLES< ETC.
-What happens with my experience as I check out Rockefeller Center for instance, with all its soaring Art-Deco magickal action--as it draws a line of continuity between CLASSICAL CIVILIZATIONS (Egypt, Greece, etc.) (which pertain to WESTERN CIV'S idyllic fashioning of its self image?) as reminisced through such a misty golden fantasia! And NOW celebrating 20th Century American Civilization's Ingenuity with misty golden energy! HOW SHAMEFUL—JK!— But what's going on with the MAGICKAL aspects though?
-What was going to become of me and my art, after the problem happened when I started to envision myself living in a GRANDILOQUENT BEAUX-ARTS APARTMENT? This is not my reality. When I walk out of my apartment, I do not descend an amazing ART-NOUVEAU STAIRCASE. Nor do I live in a fantastic new highrise on 57th street, like 157 W 57th St. or 432 Park Ave.
-I wanted to build a sculptre, that crossed emotional purposes in my personal universe of Magickal feelings: A SCULPTURER that feels as if it could serve as an Armoire in Helena Markos's bedroom, A SCULPTURER that feels as though certain of its components are inspired by luxury lobby decorations (the waterfall inside it), A SCULPTURER that begins to feel imposing, demonic, like a big smoking kiln, a furnace, a scyscraper on fire! >>> A SCULPTURE AND PAINTINGS THAT HAS SOMETHING TO DO WITH PERSONAL MAIGKAL AND WESTERN CIV HUMORS/FEELINGS! —KMFA
