T is for Triangle

Machine stitched fabric bits under tulle, with dimensional paint edging, on tissue paper "parchment", the directions for which you will find in The Great Library ATC Swap, due out on May 1st.


Made me think of those books that talk about the sacred feminine (downward triangle) and the sacred masculine (upward triangle).

I keep wondering what it would be like to live in a country where the sacred is a lifestyle lived by everybody. In Thailand, for example, 96% of the people are Buddhist. Religious service is compulsory for a year when a boy reaches manhood. Buddhism teaches, among other things how to live without practicing violence and with the practice of service. Imagine living like that.

Of course Thailand has a world famous sex trade and that is not a life without violence, so it isn't like anyone has it figured out. But anyway, I keep wondering.

My plan is for Universal Art Practice. That each one of us would be able to make a little art everyday, all throughout our lives.

Well, see ya tomorrow.
