People’s tastes the world over are fundamentally different, from Asia to Africa from Europe to America various aspects of life generate the traits that we see in all humans world wide. Religion of course is a big factor with some, a factor that on the whole was created a millennia ago and tends to be a little out of step with the modern age in aspect as well as in text.
Another factor is the political climate which will created personas under intense political pressures some which some state governments try to impose. Another factor too is pier pressure wanting to or having to fit in in able just to live normally or it maybe a case of just trying to keep the peace.
At sometime in someone’s life,some of these factors,if not all,come into play and shape the individual into the adult that they eventually become. After a time too most become restless and long to break the chains and find a place and a persona they can be happy with for the rest of their lives. People are individuals we are not all the same,we don’t all have the same tastes and neither should we be told to tow the line.
Without these individualistic charms we wouldn’t get the artist, the musician, the activist or even the politician.Having mentioned all this people need to be inspired to create works of any kind and this is true even in my endeavours to create this naturist blog you are reading right now. My inspirations to live a naturist lifestyle come from the outdoors the tranquil countryside and the need to strip away all that is not required anymore, in order to be happy.
Two Jackson Pollock creations
Other more famous people look to other inspirations in their lives to create famous works that live on forever.I admire the likes of Jackson Pollock, George Orwell, Lennon & McCartney, Dylan Thomas and others like Captain Beefheart, Karl Heinz Stockhausen and Frank Zappa too. Sometimes the admiration is more for the way they create their art more that the final result they achieve. Regardless of this they also inspire others to create fine works whether they mean to or not.
Two of these are worth a mention…….
Karl Heinz Stockhausen (German pronunciation: [kaʁlˈhaɪnts ˈʃtɔkhaʊzn̩]; 22 August 1928 – 5 December 2007) was a German composer, widely acknowledged by critics as one of the most important (Barrett 1988, 45; Harvey 1975b, 705; Hopkins 1972, 33; Klein 1968, 117) but also controversial (Power 1990, 30) composers of the 20th and early 21st centuries. Another critic calls him “one of the great visionaries of 20th-century music” (Hewett 2007). He is known for his groundbreaking work in electronic music, aleatory (controlled chance) in serial composition, and musical spatialization. Some of these sound types you find appearing in later works by the likes of David Bowie and Visage and even if you don’t, you will find or see a direct link to it,in the ‘inspiration technique’ that is used.Jackson Pollock too has inspired many artists and musicians alike.
Paul Jackson Pollock (January 28, 1912 – August 11, 1956), known as Jackson Pollock, was an influential American painter and a major figure in the abstract expressionist movement. He was well known for his unique style of drip painting.
During his lifetime, Pollock enjoyed considerable fame and notoriety, a major artist of his generation. Regarded as reclusive, he had a volatile personality, and struggled with alcoholism for most of his life. In 1945, he married the artist Lee Krasner, who became an important influence on his career and on his legacy.Pollock died at the age of 44 in an alcohol-related, single-car accident; he was driving. In December 1956, several months after his death, Pollock was given a memorial retrospective exhibition at the Museum of Modern Art (MoMA) in New York City. A larger, more comprehensive exhibition of his work was held there in 1967. In 1998 and 1999, his work was honoured with large-scale retrospective exhibitions at MoMA and at The Tate in London.In 2000, Jackson Pollock was the subject of an Academy Award-winning film Pollock directed by and starring Ed Harris.
People will say “its crap” and “its rubbish”, or “what’s that” but surely in the long run it is better to have created something lasting than created nothing at all.Naturism is something vaguely similar, in that you have to think about it a lot before you do it for the first time, you have to get your head around how it will feel to be naked around others and because of this just like the creation of art and composing of music,it is incredibly individualistic.It is also different for everyone just like people’s taste in music and art and I’d always say experience it before judging and don’t be influenced by what people say or think.
