About

Graphic anthropology: The study of humanity through its imagery and iconography.

This page is not a professor telling you what it means. Although I have several years studying anthropology. It is more the artists creation of the images, that may be studied at a later time, by graphic anthropologists, to determine the nature of our culture. From my point of view.

The written work is just as abstract as the images.

I consider myself primarily as a painter. This blog was pulled from my online art show,  at the link Abstractions of Violence on the main page (but its no longer a slideshow). The written word you find here is a mixture of academic writing on anthropology, and various attempts at fiction. Sometimes the images say far more than any words I may apply to them.

    Greetings from the moon.

      Hello, how is the view from the moon today?

      • The view is horrible, I see the flashes of bombs exploding in Syria.

        Its a terrible thing to witness. It sometimes seems that everyone has their hands over their eyes and ears. Powerlessness. Like watching someone being abused from a distance. Who will stop it? Someone else?

      • When we know the problems are far away we are full of calm, although on this way we are complicit of murders and when we believe we can not do anything, stupid we become also.

        Willful ignorance is a problem. No one but the children of today’s connected world can say they didn’t know. Pretending that everything is fine and nothing bad will happen near us is a frightening attitude. We may all be judged by our grandchildren, by the future. When we are asked ‘what did you do?’ Things won’t change until everyone admits that something is wrong. The world is addicted to ignorance and denial, oil and pleasure, greed is rampant. Nothing can happen until the addict admits they are addicted. Be aware is the best we can do, and speak, write, paint an opinion. We must try.

  2. Yours is an unusual blog, remarkable even, both for your artistic skill and social perception that animates your art. I look forward to your posts and feel honoured that you call in on mine.
    Best wishes
    Neil
