A must for your collection – Ron Burkhardt – The Notism Movement
Notism exalts the Beauty of Memory. It’s symbolic of primal loss; the fading reality of nature’s perfection. These hieroglyphic scribbles and scrawls manifest in a unique pictorial language that reflects urgent efforts to preserve our personal histories and rapidly fleeting histories.
It symbolizes our attempts to form a connection between internal memory fragments and nature’s raw symbols, textures and colors. The haunting pain of life passing by is laid bare in textual writings that serve as metaphors for our past; a visceral loss of the profound feelings that accompany our recall of emotionally charged events.
Notism (“NO-tizm”) also assaults information overload and helps us preserve the organic power of communicating through intimate, hand-written notes.
