Defence and Illustration of Classical Voodle

"A voodle must be both abstract and figurative. Abstract as a wall, figurative as a representation of space. Voodling is optimistic because everything is always possible, nothing is ever prohibited: all you need is to be in touch with life. And life itself must be optimistic, otherwise everyone in the world would continue to watch TV soaps...To create a new world where man and objects exist in harmony, that is a voodle's aim. As much political as poetic, it explains this passion for expression...almost like painting."

As the voodle is not an art which films life, but is something between art and life, Sam Renseiw montaged footage from his recent application delivery for "The Silent Language", paraphrasing a JLG statement: "Unlike painting and literature, the voodle both gives to life and takes from it, and I try to render this concept in my voodles. Literature and painting both exist as art from the very start; the voodle doesn’t." View the short piece by clicking here or on the links above.
