Art world links which caught my eye…
Dali and Disney
The Disney Company is the source of much evil these days, as they are collaborating with communist Ch1nese. But back in the day, the film studio just wanted to entertain, and were often very innovative in their efforts.
In 1945-1946, Disney studio artist John Hench worked with surrealist painter Salvador Dali to storyboard an animated short. Animation would have been an excellent medium for Dali’s hallucinatory, shifting imagery. Unfortunately the project was not completed at the time due to budgetary reasons.
In 2003, using the mysterious story boards created by Dali and Hench, the project called Destino was finally completed, using a combination of computer and traditional animation.
RICHARD BLEDSOE is a visual story teller; a painter of fables and parables. He received his BFA in Painting from Virginia Commonwealth University. Richard has been an exhibiting artist for over 25 years, in both the United States and internationally. He lives and paints happily in Phoenix, Arizona, with his wife Michele and cat Motorhead. He is the author of Remodern America: How the Renewal of the Arts Will Change the Course of Western Civilization:
“Remodernism is not a style of art, it is a form of motivation. We express the universal language of inspired humanity.
“We do not imitate what came before. We find in ourselves the same divine essence of love and excitement which has inspired masterpieces throughout history. We are strengthened by drawing on traditions thousands of years old.
“We integrate the bold, visionary efforts of the Modern era into a holistic, meaningful expression of contemporary life. Remodernism seeks a humble maturity which heals the fragmentation and contradictions of Modernism, and obliterates the narcissistic lies of Postmodernism.
“Remodernism is the return of art as a revelation.”
