The Magic of the Cities.

Zen promotes the rediscovery of the obvious, which is so often lost in its familiarity and simplicity. It sees the miraculous in the common and magic in our everyday surroundings. When we are not rushed, and our minds are unclouded by conceptualizations, a veil will sometimes drop, introducing the viewer to a world unseen since childhood. ~ John Greer

Rio de Janeiro Park


"Parks and gardens are the quintessential intimate landscapes. People use them all the time, leaving their energy and memories behind. It’s what’s left behind that I like to photograph." - Michael Kenna

Performance

(iPhoneography)
9th Cultural Corridor Roma Condesa
In the mid-1990s a number of contemporary art galleries located in the Roma neighborhood came together to make a joint project, in addition to increasing its convening power, managed to recover public spaces, rehabilitation tissue social networks and coexistence in the area. In the last decade the Roma and Condesa colonies have become important centers of artistic production, leading to the proliferation of countless new cultural expressions.

In order to relocate these territories on the map and in the minds of the inhabitants of Mexico City, this event aims to revive this corridor, this time with a renewed spirit for disseminating valuable projects and initiatives that rotate on two highly topical aspects: contemporary art and design.

Because we live in when you need to generate projects, and promote contemporary culture help restore the social fabric, to restore confidence in city life and foster networks achieve coexistence. Contemporary culture, involving a variety of genres such as art, design, music and fashion has been an effective means of social networking in addition to promoting the education and training of informed individuals who can best meet your context condition.

It is done this event twice a year: the last weekend of May and the last weekend of November.

Quieting The Mind






Picasso once said that it took him four years to paint like Raphael, but it took him a lifetime to paint like a child.
To see things in their original beauty, we must crack the shell of preconceptions with which adults are saddled.
 Zen has little to do with ideas, and its masters consistently point to the concrete. 
We are surrounded by magic. 
We literally have to go nowhere.
John Greer

Art Lesson



Painting is easy when you don't know how, but very difficult when you do.  ~Edgar Degas

It is a mistake for a sculptor or a painter to speak or write very often about his job.  It releases tension needed for his work.  ~Henry Moore

An artist is someone who produces things that people don't need to have but that he - for some reason - thinks it would be a good idea to give them.  ~Andy Warhol

The world today doesn't make sense, so why should I paint pictures that do?  ~Pablo Picasso

Painting is just another way of keeping a diary.  ~Pablo Picasso

A man paints with his brains and not with his hands.  ~Michelangelo

Painting is poetry that is seen rather than felt, and poetry is painting that is felt rather than seen.  ~Leonardo da Vinci

I don't paint things.  I only paint the difference between things.  ~Henri Matisse

The aim of art is to represent not the outward appearance of things, but their inward significance.  ~Aristotle

The artist's world is limitless.  It can be found anywhere, far from where he lives or a few feet away.  It is always on his doorstep.  ~Paul Strand

Dia de Muertos



Las Calacas



Tequila for The Dead


The Day of the Dead (Día de los Muertos in Spanish) is a holiday celebrated mainly in Mexico and by people of Mexican heritage (and others) living in the United States and Canada. The holiday focuses on gatherings of family and friends to pray for and remember friends and relatives who have died. The celebration occurs on the 1st and 2nd of November, in connection with the Catholic holy days of All Saints' Day and All Souls' Day which take place on those days. Traditions include building private altars honoring the deceased, using sugar skulls, marigolds, and the favorite foods and beverages of the departed, and visiting graves with these as gifts. Observance of the holiday in Mexican-American communities in the United States has become more important and widespread as the community grows numerically and economically. [Wiki.]
