"Au Bout du Voyage"
"La chute d’Icare"
"Hiver à Vienne"
La peinture est mémoire. Mémoire de sensations fulgurées dans les coups de pinceau, les grattages, les recouvrements de la peinture à l’huile.
Un tableau de Gérard Stricher est travaillé comme un matériau mouvant, il bouge, il vibre afin de porter le regard vers l’immatériel.
Ecoutez la couleur, mesurez les impossibilités de la peinture et trouvez à chaque tableau, les rythmes dans leurs retentissements, s’animer.
Le monde sensible est un fond musical qui transparaît en sourdine à travers les couches de peinture et imprégnations de la toile pour ressurgir à la surface.
Résonance intérieure de l‘émotion exaltée dans son extériorité.
Il s’agit ici de remettre en question la recherche de soi, approfondie par le doute.Une forme de voyage vers l’autre également.
The painting is a memory. Memory dazzled feelings of brush strokes scrapings, the recoveries of oil painting. The table is stricher Gérard worked in the moving material, it moves, it vibrates to the eye intangible. Listen to the color, measure the impossibility of painting and to find each table, the rhythms of the consequences to life.
The rational world is a musical background that shines softly through the layers of paint and impregnation of the fabric to regenerate the inner feelings of his exalted surface.
Inner resonance of exalted emotion in its externality.
This is here to challenge the selfishness, deepens doubt.
A form of transportation to another also. Here because of an invitation to think, to give ourselves a charmed, taken out of the work Designer carrying her generosity, eternal love, he brings us his artistic commitment.

Polish doctor that refused to perform abortion named a “hero”
Dr Bogdan Chazan was visited by an expecting mother (32 weeks into pregnancy), who already had 5 miscarriages before and was worried about her health. It turned out that the fetus had hydrocephalus, undeveloped brain and was missing many bones from its skull. The Doctor refused to perform an abortion and didn’t send the woman to another hospital which could do so (according to polish law, if a doctor doesn’t want to perform an abortion, he has to choose another hospital which will agree to do so). Chazan was named a “local hero” and “true warrior of Jesus in the name of life of the unborn” by many polish politicians and catholic activists. He used conscience clause as an excuse for his actions.
The woman gave birth to the child through a C-section. She and her husband spent 10 painful days watching their deformed child die a horrible death. When she finally decided to speak out, she said:
“During these 10 days, no priest, no pro life activist or even dr Chazan came to see the child, to ask if they can help. It was really hard to look at our child. We knew what was coming, but it was still very hard to cope with”
Congratulations, pro-lifers - another “life” saved, another “happy” child and “happy” family.
though i think he got fired now? not sure if its true
i hope it is
Yep, that’s exactly what Jesus’d do, right?

Anonymous said: the part where sam makes a devil trap in his own blood is one of the most under rated spn scenes. he frickin bit himself to save his brother! my fave soulless sam moment hands down
It IS a very underrated scene. I mean he’s SOULLESS he’s not supposed to give two shits about anyone……yet…… he does. Clearly. Even as he says he doesn’t really care about Dean, his actions say different.That is so monumental and it’s just brushed off in the show and with the fans.
I don’t really get it.
THIS IS THE SHIT WE GREW UP WATCHING WERE THE WARNER BROTHERS ON ACID OR WHAT
Best ending ever. The “freeing of Tony Stark” as all the suits explode is emotionally resonant and just wonderful. To all the people who are complaining that “he blew up all his suits” — you are totally missing the entire point of the movie.
Tony can always build more suits. His problem was that, traumatized and emotionally scarred (and Tony, despite all his surface ego and bravado, has always been emotionally needy and unsure of himself — factors that Downey’s performance has always showcased…), Tony was hiding behind the suits, making suit after suit, more comfortable as a tinker/mechanic than as a superhero or a true loving partner to Pepper. The Clean Slate Protocol — which, touchingly, he had obviously built in to potentially use someday — is a gesture of great personal courage. He has learned, through that vast swathe of “Iron Man 3” storyline where he’s deprived of his suits, or his suits don’t come through for him, that HE is Iron Man. “You Know Who I Am” — his “egotistical” nametag in Bern — becomes an ironic metaphor for the entire movie, which is ABOUT “who is Iron Man — does the suit really make the man?”
And the answer is no. Tony, himself, without the suits, IS Iron Man. It’s his bravery, his willingness to lean from his mistakes, his brains, his creativity, his adaptability and his humanity that are Iron Man/Tony Stark, for they are one and the same. The suits without the man in them are JUST suits — they are expendable, they can be built again, they can be blown up at will. And the arc reactor is not Iron Man, either, by the way - it, too, is expendable, and by ridding himself of it he rids himself of another crutch.
This is why I loved “Iron Man 3” and thought it was the best of the three Iron Man movies, or at least equal to “Iron Man” the first. It really tells the story of a hero who grows and learns something important about himself through the course of the movie. It proves again that Tony Stark/Iron Man is the most human of superheroes, which is, of course, why so many of us love him.
And if there ever were Oscars that fairly considered superhero movies and other genre fare, RDJ’s amazing, complex, touching and human portrayal of Tony Stark would have won something by now — it’s twice the performance of many actors who actually have won the award. Just sayin’.
Ann Friedman's Disapproval Matrix for handling criticism is a thing of genius, not to mention essential internet-age literacy. She explains:
Critics: These are smart people who know something about your field. They are taking a hard look at your work and are not loving it. You’ll probably want to listen to what they have to say, and make some adjustments to your work based on their thoughtful comments.
Lovers: These people are invested in you and are also giving you negative but rational feedback because they want you to improve. Listen to them, too.
Frenemies: Ooooh, this quadrant is tricky. These people really know how to hurt you, because they know you personally or know your work pretty well. But at the end of the day, their criticism is not actually about your work—it’s about you personally. And they aren’t actually interested in a productive conversation that will result in you becoming better at what you do. They just wanna undermine you. Dishonorable mention goes to The Hater Within, aka the irrational voice inside you that says you suck, which usually falls into this quadrant. Tell all of these fools to sit down and shut up.
Haters: This is your garden-variety, often anonymous troll who wants to tear down everything about you for no rational reason. Folks in this quadrant are easy to write off because they’re counterproductive and you don’t even know them. Ignore! Engaging won’t make you any better at what you do. And then rest easy, because having haters is proof your work is finding a wide audience and is sparking conversation. Own it.
The general rule of thumb? When you receive negative feedback that falls into one of the top two quadrants—from experts or people who care about you who are engaging with and rationally critiquing your work—you should probably take their comments to heart. When you receive negative feedback that falls into the bottom two quadrants, you should just let it roll off your back and just keep doin’ you.
