    (via Artist Interview: Anoka Faruqee’s Optical Paintings Will Twist And Bend Your Perception - Beautiful/Decay Artist & Design)

    When walking towards a painting by Anoka Faruqee your eyes refuse to settle. Turquoise, formed into an elongated triangular band, is pinched between two golden curves. The turquoise is misbehaving. Instead of sitting still it appears to flex and blend into the yellow. As you get closer the painting changes, and at arm’s length another dramatic shift occurs, the previous turquoise and gold bands of color atomizes into narrow, serpentine, overlapping lines with several more colors, no longer just turquoise and gold. Looking across the room your eyes settle on another painting. This square shaped canvas is a warm gray that seems to dance. Upon closer inspection the pleasantly worked surface transforms into a swirling design of forest green and cherry red lines. Faruqee calls this series of paintings the Moiré series, after the illusion with the same name. The history of Modern art is often told as a race towards extremes, but will that be true of 21st century art? Anoka Faruqee’s work seems to place less emphasis on ‘pureness’ than other abstraction. Faruqee’s work suggests that we can be more complex, and where artists over the past sixty years searched for the strongest statement, maybe our searches will lead in different, more nuanced directions. …

    While working on Buk…

    I was naturally a loner, content just to live with a woman, eat with her, sleep with her, walk down the street with her. I didn’t want conversation, or to go anywhere except the racetrack or the boxing matches. I didn’t understand t.v. I felt foolish paying money to go into a movie theatre and sit with other people to share their emotions. Parties sickened me. I hated the game-playing, the dirty play, the flirting, the amateur drunks, the bores.”

    Charles Bukowski

    How about some quotes?

    "I feel that ‘man-hating’ is an honorable and viable political act, that the oppressed have a right to class-hatred against the class that is oppressing them." — Robin Morgan, Ms. Magazine Editor.

    "I claim that rape exists any time sexual intercourse occurs when it has not been initiated by the woman, out of her own genuine affection and desire." — Robin Morgan

    "To call a man an animal is to flatter him; he’s a machine, a walking dildo." — Valerie Solanas, Authoress of the SCUM Manifesto

    "The male is a domestic animal which, if treated with firmness…can be trained to do most things." — Jilly Cooper, SCUM

    "I want to see a man beaten to a bloody pulp with a high-heel shoved in his mouth, like an apple in the mouth of a pig." — Andrea Dworkin

    "Q: People think you are very hostile to men. A: I am." — Andrea Dworkin

    "Men who are unjustly accused of rape can sometimes gain from the experience." - Catherine Comins

    "All men are rapists and that’s all they are" — Marilyn French, Authoress

    "Men use the night to erase us." — Andrea Dworkin

    "The annihilation of a woman’s personality, individuality, will, character, is prerequisite to male sexuality." — Andrea Dworkin

    "Men love death. In everything they make, they hollow out a central place for death, let its rancid smell contaminate every dimension of whatever still survives. Men especially love murder. In art they celebrate it, and in life they commit it. They embrace murder as if life without it would be devoid of passion, meaning, and action, as if murder were solace, stilling their sobs as they mourn the emptiness and alienation of their lives."
    — Andrea Dworkin 

    "Men are rapists, batterers, plunderers, killers; these same men are religious prophets, poets, heroes, figures of romance, adventure, accomplishment, figures ennobled by tragedy and defeat. Men have claimed the earth, called it ‘Her’. Men ruin Her. Men have airplanes, guns, bombs, poisonous gases, weapons so perverse and deadly that they defy any authentically human imagination."
    — Andrea Dworkin, Pornography: Men Possessing Women 

    "On the Left, on the Right, in the Middle; Authors, statesmen, thieves; so-called humanists and self-declared fascists; the adventurous and the contemplative, in every realm of male expression and action, violence is experienced and articulated as love and freedom."
    — Andrea Dworkin, Pornography: Men Possessing Women. 

    "The institution of sexual intercourse is anti-feminist" — Ti-Grace Atkinson

    Feminism is the theory, lesbianism is the practice.” — Ti-Grace Atkinson

    "Rape is nothing more or less than a conscious process of intimidation by which all men keep all women in a state of fear" — Susan Brownmiller; Authoress of Against Our Will p.6

    "When a woman reaches orgasm with a man she is only collaborating with the patriarchal system, eroticizing her own oppression." — Sheila Jeffrys

    "Politically, I call it rape whenever a woman has sex and feels violated." — Catherine MacKinnon 

    "All sex, even consensual sex between a married couple, is an act of violence perpetrated against a woman." — Catherine MacKinnon

    "You grow up with your father holding you down and covering your mouth so another man can make a horrible searing pain between your legs."
    — Catherine MacKinnon (Prominent legal feminist scholar; University of Michigan, & Yale.) 

    "The more famous and powerful I get the more power I have to hurt men." — Sharon Stone; Actress

    "Ninety-five percent of women’s experiences are about being a victim. Or about being an underdog, or having to survive… women didn’t go to Vietnam and blow things up. They are not Rambo."
    — Jodie Foster; Actress - as quoted in The New York Times Magazine.


    "And if the professional rapist is to be separated from the average dominant heterosexual (male), it may be mainly a quantitative difference."
    — Susan Griffin, Rape: The All-American Crime. 

    "The proportion of men must be reduced to and maintained at approximately 10% of the human race." — Sally Miller Gearhart, in The Future - If There Is One - Is Female.

    The stupidity of a few of the ilk dilutes the hard work of those who actually fight for their beliefs.
