Visit with Jim – Kintsugi

Today’s post and read is about the Kintsugi esthetic.  Similar to the Wabi-Sabi concept, this takes us in a new and novel direction with regards to imperfection and acceptance.   This also seems to extend the concept of imperfection into the realm of intentionality.  The story starts several centuries ago, ~15th century.  A shogun sends a […]

Visit with Jim – Wabi Sabi Esthetic

If life is constantly changing, nothing can be complete or perfect.  Acceptance of this idea is perhaps a path forward to peace and freedom. The more I read here, the more any race to achieve perfection begins to sound like a fool’s pursuit.   Imperfection and impermanence… Wabi – sabi…  Slow down … Find beauty in imperfection and […]

Visit with Jim – Streets of Seville and Cordoba

As I have shared, I am exploring several areas to learn more about this space that is macrophotography and use it as a springboard for my photographic artwork.  What would be a new way to wander the streets of international cities and take a fresh look at what surrounds us?  How would the narrow street […]

Visit with Jim – Break Your Own Boundaries

The beauty of the acrylic pour lies in the […]

Visit with Jim – Breathe and Exhale

Today’s post explores the concept of calm, breathe and peaceful reflection.  How does art prompt specific emotions and reactions speaking to us on a deeper level, not simply a ‘that’s a neat image’ plane.  Recently this set of photos called Curves in Gold struck an interesting chord for me.  My cousin saw the posts in […]

Visit with Jim – How do I pick my glass?

Today I will begin to share how the glass is picked for the macrophotography artwork that finds its way on to your walls.  I harken back to a trip to Murano Italy a few years ago where my wife and our boys were traveling.  We were in Venice and took a day trip to the […]
