Has art lost connection with humanity? Has art lost its way? Does it answer our innermost human needs? Is the disconnect too great or can it be revived literally with the kiss of life?

Do you share my concern about the way the visual arts are heading?. Do you feel there is a disconnect with humanity . Where is the romance and the passion? Where is the love, spritual and erotic. Where is nature, the awe and the the passion, the body and soul? Can this disconnect be repaired?
In this digital age even the human act of making marks on paper or canvas is being denied creating a further remove.
Can conceptual art, installation art and performance art feed and nuture our needs?

H u m a n; has a history.. " individual " has appeared in the last period. ..they say Mozart was the first individual compositor. ( and when U listen to Mozart; -after becoming him- -becoming Mozart, first- ; U can feel your individual thoughts..a f t e r him..)
S O; sometimes w e lost who we are; (or still we lose, who we are, or are we human or an animal from the herd-instinct.) a n d; M U S i C; MAKEs u s, H u m a n, (first o f all ) ( compositors are HUMAN- T O T E M s ; -Moulds or MODELs- ) ..a n d, SO; D o e s ; ,Painters; &Writers; e.c.t.


N o w aDays; w e; can appear; " a s iNDiViDUAL s " ; " Human-b e ings " ..(the conditions of the world has improved .. SO; ; we do not act with HERD-instincs ..)
a n d ; " m u s i c " , is not art. t h e n .
... (art History has devided art, into parts; SO;" H u m a n architecture " might b e i n s t a l l e d ; in a r t.. U architects of art History ,Architecture; h a s emerged in fine arts, too.) It is a decipline in art; (cinema is the 7.th art) ..if there w i l l be; a Total-art withSOUND; than, it should b e; " SOUND ART " ; (only Sound; can perform all actions in ART).. (MUSiC is BABY-M i l k; b e provided; t o BABy-HUMAN-state, for them to BEperfect-H u m a n s..RATiONAL)

w h a t is " CONTEMPORARy; SOUND; A R T "; t h e n..F i r s t of all, U have to be a perfect-human; matured-individual, -that means u can walk in slippery conditions and U still can stay; H u m a n.-.) t h e n ; in art; there must b e, very interesting and wild and contrary sounds; t o destroy U'r iNdividulaity and your HUMAN-L a y e r.. M a n y Creatures ; that can take birth from the SOUND..will attack U'r m i n d and U'r BODy.. and they will MAKE; U'r " SOUND-B o d y " ; perfect.. (add a SOUND Body; by making " SOUND-creatures "; enter U'r Body; from U'r EAR..
SO; U have a better SOUND-BODy; in U'r B r a i n ; and that body exists from the " creatures " .. (that U have this creature-structure in U'r SOUND-Body ; too..that also means U can create, with , only sound, too..)

...l e t art; A WAY..Say my " EAR; can hear " ; ; a wide-range o f sounds.. (5 octavs and; tones of the sound, too.. -like I can see the SOUL s;in colors; ; with myEyes-; , I can see " sound-creatures " with m y E A R s..
..and I play Piano to t o u c h these, b e ings; only.. ( so this is not music) ..b u t there are SOUNDs; that a c t..
..t h e n, U'r E A R; has to be improved; by the composer to that; L A V E L; ; (or that sound art; m a y, take a way the curtain; that has been o n U' r Conscious; or laid in U' r EAR s..by ,who do not want U to hear or see every-THiNG..)

S O; what is art..and how DOES; it, change, and in which w a y.. I t depends, , who these HUMAN; a r e..if they are strong-iNDiViDUALs; (not living in herd s -or even in a family- ) t h e n they need " WiLD-Visions-SOUNDs-Writings-dances; e.c.t. " to strenghten their multi-B O D i E S;i n every,m e d i u m from art..

...e v e r yART-decipline can, i n s t a l l a " WHOLE-BODy " ; into our " HUMAN-chassis ".. that means; I must have my; " PAiNTiNg-BODY " that can act; as a painting, and so, n e v e r opens his M O U T H.. -and tell every thing with meaninfull picturings..- ..SOUND-BODy; ALPHABETH-BODy e.c.t.
M U L T i; BODiES; can be fed, -and installed in Human; ONLY; b y , contemporary a r t..
When come to " K i s s " of Life..if there is an artist, with; that; MULTi; B o d y, then; what ever H e/she DOES; in a n y ; a r t M e d i u m; that will b e the KiSS of L i f e ; by a TOTAL; H U M A N.. t h e n..

S O; " i n d i v i d u a l "; can be; DEViDED; b y 7 (7arts); and there will be still " ONE(7) WHOLE Human-Body " .. (but u can not devide a " enlarged-and-eXtendedHUMAN; even to 2)

What makes a "good" abstract painting?



Murat Oktay Danış • ..DO; U, express U'r feelings,and i d e a s , when U write with Alphabeth Letters.. (this is not abstracting) ..

..but u can write with U'r hand on a paper to l e t, Alphabeth L e t t e r s; ABSTRACT U' r B r a i n, t o o..(U should write , for that reason; o n l y..).Like letters abstract the things in U' r w o r d s..they have to abstract U' r brain, t o o.
..so only a truely abstracted m i n d; can, a c t in abstraction, as that artist d o e s " t h i n g s " with his hands i n art s... be u'r self and go on with u'r daily d e e d s; in the medium of art' s.. (it automatically will be installed in t o , the medium..)

" truely-Abstracted-Brain ; o f U'r s" shall abstract U' r DO i n g s, (DOing T H i N G s) i n art too..U shouldn't try to abstract when U have to abstract, there in the art-doings.. that is the natural way of A b s t r a c t i n g , D O i n g s, I guess..

Jaabi Faarai • Hi Murat, do your writings take time to write?
it looks like reliefs low down at the end of last paragraph, seems they reached the sea...



Jim Foster • I walk three miles around a Reservoir- from parking along a huge irrigation ditch filled with water. On the other side of the irrgation. ditch are geological cliffs and rock settlements. These cliffs are 40-50 ft, real rugged and have pedestals. The Native Peoples had to have used them for council meetings and perhaps total sheepherder like camps. Any time I take someone with me- they don't even see the cliffs but are talking full blast- telling me their story .

I prefer quiet and let the place talk to me. All this is within the range of intermittent clouds having real personal dimensions. I feel like every bird call is an innocent setting for me to realize I am in their place- this is- The Wild !!!- You keep walking and things start to be important that never were before. I usually fish where the inlet comes in and dumps new water. Every bird in the world could come here and be at home. Art works come from out of nowhere. They are not always understandable. I do a lot of things without understanding any art intended.




Murat Oktay Danış • Y e s , Jaabi..My writings take t i m e; 4X1writing; time. .that means, there are 4 person and 4 pen in them..and in fact, t h e y are; the minimal amount, -cut into; 1/4- in Alphabeth letters. (one has to read them 4 t i m e s..and in every read ing session, ; they had to find a new writing i n t h e m...) (they are; ;" SQUARE Writing s " )
..in fact ;I think; m y writings, Take their b i r t h in the , d e e p-s e a. (or in the ocean of that B R A i n..but can not reach to the shore to walk in crocodile or fly in the air..b u t in my paintings, these appear, t o b e. I guess..

..and a sentence that Jim has said.
" They are not always understandable. I do a lot of things without understanding any art intended. "
..people sit and write if they are to e x p r e s s;(or eXplain) something, ..they use alphabeth to shape " things " ; or to transmit, what has been shaped, inside, their thinking.

L e t me , tell " U " why I write..(my One-page;-4Writings; hand-writings..)
First of all; to " WORSHiP "2 the ALPHAbeth..I draw every letter correct and carefully and straight..(that means I install them into my brain ) ..then when they are installed in my brain, they must have changed my t h i n k i n g.. (my intentions..)


...while these " letters" being drawn by my hand; there o c c u r e s a passage; in my HAND.. (what goes from m y BODY; into that Alphabeth's Dark L i n e s; -into the letters- , and what comes into my BODy; from t h e r e; -from the Land of the ALPHA b e t 's-..I do not know, ,nor MyRatio; , only b e ; " inbetween ",)

Writing i s , the " Wagina; o f the art " to, m e.. there happens someThing in between my body and " ALPHA b e t h's ; other-side, L a n d s " ..and " these THiNGs " they will a p p e a r ; in the PAiNTing; a s " realms should reach to, ; their; WORLD s " ..(in the PAiNT..)

..instead of Medium-PAiNT; Writing itself can give birth to these NEW-THiNGs....a very instant birth takes place while writing. (when writing, the instrument U use is Alphabeth; not U'r Brain..so U'r brain-originated thinkings, shall change BASE; as they begin to include ,alphabeth letters..)
.b u t D O E S; ; any one OPEN; their Thinkings, to that " alphabeth affection " ...or do they love to put their-thinkings into these letters; and infect that " solid-ABSTRACT-TOTEM "..-named Alphabeth.-
(thinkings can enfect the Alphabeth letters ; -because they have different signs in them; ..would U let U'r thinkings DO; that..o r, DO t h e reverse..
W E; n e e d ; a balance and Equilibrium; .propvided i n the w r i t i n g.

- B O D y ; c a n, b e coded on letters,(as every letter can have color, sound, movement ,dance, sign . e.c.t.) -of Alphabeth's- and then , be transfered; in t o; the PAiNT i n g -or into other art mediums- .. o u t of; " any art intended "..
