Very fine piece from Marie Wintzer's line series

Cheryl Penn gave Marie's entire series the thorough blog that it deserves, and here is one that I was thrilled to receive: 

Just beautiful, Marie, from a brilliant series. Thank you so much!

So beautiful-the layering in this series is so rich and dramatic. I love the little birds. to me it looks like the merging on a Science Textbook and hieroglyphics

Cheryl did such a great blog, and I'm so lucky to have it blogged again! Thank you Nancy! And thank you people below, so kind of you. Thom, you mean that my birds might be migratory agents of the DKULT?! :-)))))

Whoa, I had totally missed Cheryl's originally blog--had to go back and read it/gawk.  Great series, and I particulary like this piece.  Is that a glossy reflection I see?  So this is a photograph with a manually attached subtext?  Brilliant.

As Cheryl noted, Einstein expressed his opinion that trying to pinpoint/mark/measure time with a line is pretty pointless since it is fluid/malleable/not necessarily straight in space.  A board--a brushstroke--the dragged "space" between paint markings (except how do we know the paint wasn't stretched by a time-warping black hole?)--a crack in the board (except do we have to indicate when the crack first appeared in history?)--they all and any might just as well serve as a demarcation for some point in time/any point in time as measured against________???? Might just as well indicate a memorable occurrance in time by the flight of a line of birds migrating overhead (except that being farther away from the center of the earth's gravity, their timeline is different than the land-crawling animals...).

Geez', DVS, maybe we are starting to figure out the secret physics of the Shroud's time-traveling capabilities... through hints in Marie's line series.

Wow, the Line Series is a vispo breakthrough & an all-time personal fav. She goes way beyond the scope of her previous work. I like the lower half of this one especially, where you get into that abstract-asemic-vispo "text" that turns up in places in work by NBS & Matt Stolte. Marie makes it uniquely her own in the Line Series.
