Jean Cocteau wrote “Art is the marriage of the conscious and the unconscious.” This is a quote in which I am in complete agreement. Although there are many subtle variations of statements I can make about my paintings, drawings, and sculpture over the years, this idea is a unifying thread that connects my work. I feel artists that use forms of automatism and embrace the unconscious in the act of letting go in collaboration with decisions made in the conscious mind have a pathway to create a uniquely personal statement.
HAP AND LEONARD season two, episode 1 special screening at the Jean Cocteau Cinema, followed by a Q&A with Joe Lansdale and George RR Martin.
Set in the late 1980s, HAP AND LEONARD is a dark comedy set in a swamp about two best friends, one femme fatale, a crew of washed-up revolutionaries, a pair of murderous psycho-killers, some lost loot and the police. Based on the novels by Joe R. Lansdale, follows Hap Collins (James Purefoy), an East Texas white boy with a weakness for Southern women, and Leonard Pine (Michael Kenneth Williams), a gay, black Vietnam vet with a hot temper. When Hap’s seductive ex-wife Trudy (Christina Hendricks) resurfaces with a deal they can’t refuse, a simple get-rich-quick scheme snowballs into bloody mayhem. Chock full of eccentric characters, “Hap and Leonard” provides a country twist on the classic mystery thriller.
Join us for an evening of HP Lovecraft. He is back from the dead and, finding himself in a world even less literate but no less horrific than his own, he has done what any self-respecting reanimated horror author would and gone into the self-help and advice business. Do you have problems? Post-modernity got you down? Terrified of gibbering cultists or eager to learn how to join them? HP Lovecraft is here to help. What’s the worst that could happen?
How do you reconcile a commitment to non-violence when faced with violence? Why do the poor often seem happier than the rich? Must a society lose its traditions in order to move into the future? These are some of the questions posed to His Holiness the Dalai Lama by filmmaker and explorer Rick Ray. Ray examines some of the fundamental questions of our time by weaving together observations from his own journeys throughout India and the Middle East, and the wisdom of an extraordinary spiritual leader. This is his story, as told and filmed by Rick Ray during a private visit to his monastery in Dharamsala, India over the course of several months. Also included is rare historical footage as well as footage supplied by individuals who at great personal risk, filmed with hidden cameras within Tibet. Part biography, part philosophy, part adventure and part politics, “10 Questions for The Dalai Lama” conveys more than history and more than answers – it opens a window into the heart of an inspiring man. If you had only one hour, what would you ask?
