Anonymous asked: Your posts of the female physique in art pholotgraphy, paintings and the like are beautiful and tasteful. What is your understanding of "transcendental modernism"?
Thank you so much! That question requires quite an extensive answer, and I unfortunately do not have the time to devote to answering it in the depth it deserves. However, the Transcendentalism I refer to in my blog name all at once references the Transcendentalism that became a cultural and spiritual movement in the mid 1800s, after the publication of Ralph Waldo Emerson’s “Nature” essay, and a poem I wrote,
The Transcendental Modernist
I am a transcendental tale
A modern myth of woe
An axiom of gimping frailty

I have made a study of Transcendentalism, so I don’t feel this fully answers your question, and it also doesn’t give enough of an explanation to satisfy my inner perfectionist! If you are interested in discussing this further, feel free to message me on here with your email, and I’d be more than happy to start a correspondence over this, but please be patient in the response time for the reply emails, as I have been pretty swamped lately with the Masters Fine Art classes I’ve been teaching. :)
