Étienne/István Sándorfi, painter

March 31st, 2013

István Sándorfi (In France Étienne Sandorfi, born 12 June 1948 in Budapest, Hungary, died 26 December 2007 in Paris, France) was a Hungarian hyperrealist painter.

Visceral and self-taught in work as in life, Sandorfi has since childhood distrusted ‘things learned’ and has remained true to his personal convictions. He prefers to paint at night, but each day goes to bed later than the day before, thus living in a perpetual time lag, which sidelines him from any social life. Sandorfi reconciles this isolation with his family circle (he is the father of two girls, Ange and Eve) and his emotional life, thereby maintaining a delicate and studied balance between his life and his work.

Saltz on Tilda Swinton in a Box and How Living Art Has Become MoMA’s Crystal Meth

Placing living art in MoMA’s airy atrium has become the museum’s crystal meth. The addiction kicked in big-time a few seasons back when Marina Abramovic, the self-styled mystic guru of staring and making people cry just by looking in their eyes, sat in the museum’s atrium for months as people lined up for the chance to sit across from her and say they were part of the art. It was a spacey, necromantic circus.

Find the dancer inside!

March 18th, 2013

We need to find the dancer in each of us, and the dance in what we do. We need to breathe to move and move to breathe, and so cultivate a sensory awareness of our bodily selves as movement. When we do, we will have what we need to be able to think and feel and act in ways that remain faithful to the body of earth and our bodies of earth.

Empathy is an art form

The Empathy Machine

When you think about Sherlock Holmes, chances are it’s not his big, warm heart and his generous nature that come to mind. In fact, you might think of him as a cold fish. Yet in ‘Silver Blaze’, Arthur Conan Doyle’s story of the gallant racehorse who disappeared, Holmes takes an imaginative leap, not only into another human mind, but into the mind of an animal. This perspective-taking, being able to see the world from the point of view of another, is one of the central elements of empathy, and Holmes raised it to the status of an art.

J. L. Moreno – Acting Your Inner Music

Although psychodrama is a powerful treatment approach in itself that requires years of training, therapy and supervision before one can be certified to practice, Joseph Moreno has attempted to present the basic psychodramatic concepts and techniques that can be integrated into music therapy practice. He describes the roots of his approach as stemming from J. L. Moreno’s early experimentation with music in psychodrama (1930-40s) that he called “psychomusic,” which involved improvised vocal music and/or rhythmic expression, along with instrumental improvisation. Music was generally used by J. L. Moreno to warm up the group, leading to the selection of a protagonist for the actual psychodramatic work.
