Innocent nude posing – A page from an old diary and some related illustrations

Again, this post belongs in this blog as well –more than elsewhere…

INVISIBLE FORMS

I was going to title this post: “Nude posing in the age of innocence”, quite more elegant, but it would not be strictly true according to the text that justifies it, as well as the artwork attached.

Neither the writing nor the photographs are mine in origin, this time, but I have contributed to both things with some significative edition: translating the old manuscrite text by my sister from Catalan to English and composing a coloured mosaic with modified versions of an even older picture in black and white.

All of it goes about nakedness, innocent or saucy, and the shift between the two ways according to one’s needs and the pressure of life.

I will show first my mosaic, figuring an X (which may mean anything you want; but to me means a crossroads in life: the point in the way when innocence still shimmers briefly before changing to…

Three years of ‘Something Beyond’

Three long years have passed since Ari F started this bog with a hopeful project in her mind. She had time to publish only a few introductory pages and six posts from 2015/11/06 until 2016/01/07, but left many drafts more or less complete –which I edited, sometimes finished, and published for her in her name. Many of… Continue reading Three years of ‘Something Beyond’

A Pictorial Tribute (II) – Delvaux’s ‘Ari’ better explained and illustrated

Originally posted on INVISIBLE FORMS:
In a post here, and also in my sister’s blog, from past January 18th:  «A Pictorial Tribute – Delvaux’s “Ari”, and a sort of family portrait» , I commented on the resemblace between the young woman in red depicted by Paul Delvaux in “Rosine” (oil on canvas from 1968) and my…

Some of my Heroines… and a Little Hero

–This is a very fragmentary draft left by Ariel, and I do not feel capable to complete it beyond the few notes I have added to this moment –mostly to make it understandable and more or less presentable–. The subject and the fictional characters Ariel chose are so deeply hers that any tentative I could… Continue reading Some of my Heroines… and a Little Hero

Perro Semihundido – Half-buried Dog – A beloved work by Francisco de Goya (seen from beyond…)

Half-buried Dog (Perro Semi-hundido, in Spanish) is one of the names usually given to this painting by Francisco de Goya y Lucientes. It shows the head of a small dog looking upwards to something invisible to the viewer. The dog itself is quite lost in the vastness of the rest of the image, which is […]… Continue reading Perro Semihundido – Half-buried Dog – A beloved work by Francisco de Goya (seen from beyond…)

Xan mo ilo! – Eat my heart!

Xan mo ilo, kamlale! Pale si ma e zhivindi jag… These are Rromani words meaning “Eat my heart, my beloved ones! While I still keep the flame of life…” So why do I want my heart eaten?… How?… By whom?… To the first –rhetorical– question my answer is simple: because I need love now beyond… Continue reading Xan mo ilo! – Eat my heart!

A Variation on “Showing off Long Legs” – Made for boys

– I think this mod is better -it is also cheaper- than the original set: it is super cheap 🙂 Does anybody wish to make a comment? Does anybody opine that boys may aspire to look cute, dressing chic and girl-like?… Shouldn’t boys (and grown men) dress like they feel like dressing, disregarding all social… Continue reading A Variation on “Showing off Long Legs” – Made for boys
