Solipsism

“Waiting for Chirico” Joel Peter Witkins: 1994

In its Sadean sense, (attempting to be a free thinker; unrestricted; not confined, yet threaded to dogmas; societies’ conventions)-I am a solipsist who, feels that the idea of ‘deity ‘ is a criminal notion that the human mind has been able to formulate from an element of imagination against its own freedom. I admire the philosophical atheism of de Sade or Bakounin: “The State Capital and God are barriers to fell”! (Naz 2016)

Soul Seeker

Image; Man Ray

The most attractive game for the soul seeker, (the child wishing to play), is the game of mystery. How many meandering corridors of mythical labyrinths have our forbearers wandered through, and how many more passages will future generations congregate in, illuminating the walls with candles of desire to find the treasures hidden in the vaults of the divine halls. (Naz 2015)

I Conspire

“Bacchanalle” by miniaturist Oliver Bush

I conspire against all order(s) whose reason(s) takes to its haughtiness, and in turn conspire against the “immense, explosive, inexpressible phantom” (Swinburne), (those who would subdue the imagination). The junction between the liberation of desire and political emancipation.(Naz 2016)

Beating Hearts

Félicien Rops (1833-1898) “Messe Noire”

The beat of our hearts that responds to the invisible drum of time, the rhythm that stirs our streams of blood; blood that must be spilled: blood that will pearl, blood to exchange, the blood of desire that irrigates the spaces of desire- life.
(Naz 2015)

Divine Androgyny

The magnitude of the power of the Divine Androgyny wherein is the Majestic zoosperm of creation and the uterus of reception, and in whose breasts burns the Eternal Flame, whose Mystical Heat is melded in Infinite Universes. (Naz 2015)

Joel Peter Witkins

Joel Peter Witkins (1939-) Has been cursed as a Satanist for his work: The heroes of his pictures – transsexuals, hermaphrodites, freaks of all ages, genders and nationalities, dead children, animals, old people, and just pieces of bodies, which Witkin shoots in morgues, making different compositions of them: Complex tableaux resonating with extremes of life and death and religious connotations.

Vice & Virtue

Marcel Schwob once said that “bad characters are much more interesting than honest [virtuous] men, since they are original. Virtue is the same everywhere; only vices leave their mark on personality”. In- Apollinaire, G. ‘And the Cubist Life’: Cecily Mackworth. (1963)
