The Pathos of "No More Morning Dew"

Thomas Pulcini's avatar Thomas Pulcini

We are always interested in the forces of nature and man's effect on his living environment.The origin of my painting's title is derived from this and the impetus,or desire to make a painterly statement of the creative source being about our inner and outer world.The inner world being our mind and our sociological principles, and the outer world, in this case, being the earth's ecological system.Let me explain.As we speak ,in our society thousands of American citizens are being victimized by surveillance,particularly" electronic surveillance",and in this process have had their legal and human rights abolished from the very incipient use of this" sensory overload" technique,in our society.While this is taking place in our inner world,as we speak,within our "eco" system or outer world, over 100 species this year will become extinct on our planet from CO2 emissions.Just as the late beat poet,Allen Ginsberg, stated in 1970 that it was already too late to overcome the posed results to our eco system,the tragic has already occurred.Therefore, I described my painterly urges as "The Pathos of 'No More Morning Dew'". Besides the social implications or message,the painting is a valid attempt in the spirit of De Kooning,Kandinsky,Pollock,Matta,Tworkov, Francis..A unique feature to this particular work is that every mark on this canvas was made by a pallet knife.No brushes were used in the act of composing.I may also add that it was a very difficult photo to take due to the shadows produced by the varnish,even for a well seasoned professional photographer,since it was to be taken in j-peg,not in the raw.(NOTE:My painting was a work in progress,and was just completed ).-Thankyou for your interest.
