Art Where No Men Tread



As I see those lands ahead

Those lands where no men tread,

I see that wondrous piece of art

Which pulls me so strongly,

So strongly to its heart.

I will find a way to tread those lands,

And along those lands I'll go.

I’ll reach that painting,

That painting which pulls me,

Pulls me into it so strongly,

And to that painting I will bow.

    A fine write and pic Gold.
    Oh lol, on a quiz prog it said 'After the war certain musical works were experimental; some not very good and rather trashy'. It was a question on your favourite love-to-hate musician, Stockhausen!

    • Goldfinch60

      Thanks Orchi.

      Beecham was not the only one who did not go much on Stockhausen then.

      Thanks so much for the honour Andy - you've done it real justice with a fine write. And yes I will print and keep this.

        A wonderfully flowing and very inspiring tribute to Michael's abstract artwork - - he will love to read and keep this posting dear Andy.

        • Goldfinch60

          what a tribute Andy...
          I must go check the piece of Michaels art to which you refer... He is a fine artist I know and seems to be able to turn his hand to many forms and styles..

          • Goldfinch60

            Than k you Neville. Yes he is a fine artist, I enjoy so much of his work but he abstracts always speak to me,

            Reflecting upon this, together with the comments so far and the picture reproduced here I am having to admit to myself that i have been guilty of taking Michael's work for granted.

            I do so agree he is a fine, undoubtedly very talented, master of the visual art in many genres as we have all seen.

            I guess i am making an excuse for my taking for granted when i tell you that i am always in "the written word" mode when i see these pics so rarely take time to appreciate their fineness.

            I feel guilty now lol.

            A fine tribute from you Goldfinch revealing how 'trippy' your meditations upon this artwork become.

            • Goldfinch60

              Over the years art has been another thing that I have got into and I always look into the depths of artworks to see what is within in them that talks to me.
              If I had my way I would be living at The Ashmolean in Oxford, I have been there many times and there is one painting there that I have stood in front of for many hours and each time I see something new.

              It must be the mushrooms that I have found in the wood. LOL.

              Yes Michael's art work is masterful and we are blessed to have him here among us. And I too tend to see things within the picture. For one at first I thought it a foot, then I looked at it again here and I see it's a hand in a glove. Wonderful visual art to go with wonderful poetry from both of you. ; ) AP

              • Goldfinch60

                Thank you AP, I see many things in Michael's art but so many people look but don't see when they look at artworks - I see.

                Good eve Andy, I know you and Michael have a sense of humour, so do not take any affence at what's coming next, the first thing I thought of when I saw this painting was that it was a bandage fron the local A and E department! Lol seriously though great tribute and artwork, Bill

                • Goldfinch60

                  Thanks Bill, I can understand what you mean but in any artwork you must really look at it to see what is within it.

                  What a great short poem

                  • Goldfinch60

                    Thank you Melissa, much appreciated.

                    Art, and in this case fine art, has a captivating, one might say living property, that transcends the page to become a conceptual sphere in which both the eye and the mind may see much and derive much. An excellent work, and a fine tribute to Michael. Joe

                    • Goldfinch60

                      Thank you Joe, yes I certainly think about art in that way.
