Protesters Leave Dakota Access Pipeline Area; Some Stay And Are Arrested

In an amicus brief filed in U.S. District Court earlier this month, the leadership of the 16 federally recognized Indian tribes located in North Dakota, South Dakota and Nebraska — a group known as The Great Plains Tribal Chairmen’s Association — wrote in opposition to the pipeline.

The Dakota Access Pipeline, they argued, cannot be understood without considering the history of the federal government abusing tribal sovereignty:

“From this history, a pattern emerges wherein the United States consistently utilizes the legal narrative of the time to segregate, take from, and discriminate against Indian tribes. [The Dakota Access Pipeline] is simply the latest example of Native peoples of the Great Plains being subjected to varying legal standards and shifting political winds to justify the subordination of Indian treaty rights to non-Indian pecuniary interests.

”… In addition to the irreparable harm to the free exercise of Native religious beliefs … there is also irreparable harm in the form of historical trauma and psychological distress which stems from the consistent failure of the United States to live up to its obligations under its Treaties with Indian tribes generally, and under its Treaties with the Great Sioux Nation here specifically. Treaties matter.“

Saint Mary Magdalene, fragment (c.1522-1524). Workshop of Luca Signorelli (Italian, c.1445-1523). Oil on panel transferred to canvas.

Signorelli’s drawings bear a close analogy to the method of Michelangelo. He aimed at powerful truth rather than nobility of form. He had a vast influence over the painters of his workshop, some of whom would have completed this work.



The water protectors at standing rock are being kicked out by police.

The local police and politicians are siding with the corporation over the citizens of their state. The pipeline threatens drinking water for the entire length downstream of the Missouri river. Article 2 of the For Laramie Treaty guarantees that the reservation won’t be disturbed. The pipeline’s path would cross an important river that is one of the borders of the reservation. Any possible oil spill would damage their sacred land and impede on their religious rights.

Donald Trump personally profits from this pipeline being built and is having them ignore the still-pending environmental impact study so they can begin drilling as soon as possible.

The oil going through the pipes is going to be shipped out of the country. All this so a corporation (and President Trump) can profit at the expense of the American people.

Extremely rough version of using wintergreen oil to photo transfer onto canvas paper. I couldn’t quite remember how we did it in foundations, but as I did it, I started to remember a little better. It’s a little weird doing it on canvas paper because of the texture so I’m not sure yet if it will be successful.

Alright everyone LISTEN UP. This is yet another example of why you don’t touch a lamp with your bare hands. The oil on your fingers transfers to the glass, get really fucking hot and then can make the lamp explode. Now this particular example is a minor explosion but please note, this explosion can hold a lot of energy and can seriously hurt someone. Either way the lamp WILL blow and this was the THIRD lamp of the day that blew because someone put their grimy fingers all over the lamp when replacing it. This is extremely annoying because a) these fuckers are expensive and, in this case, b) the theatre I’m working in has shit-pore access to the lights and it takes a MINIMUM of five minutes to access and change a lamp when they die. We are in tech right now so we had to stop three times for a least five minutes each to change lamps that had exploded because someone didn’t know what they were doing. I know I’m preaching to the choir, but for the love of god if you’re not sure about something or don’t know how to do something PLEASE ASK! Doing something wrong can cause someone else a lot of time to fix it, and in some cases, a body part (thankfully that didn’t happen today, but I’ve heard the horror stories). And for those of you who see someone doing something wrong, SAY SOMETHING! At worst you’ll embarrass yourself a little if you’re wrong and learn something new, and at best you’ll save others, and possibly yourself, trouble down the road.

This has been your ranty PSA of the night.

Annunciation with St Emidius (1486). Carlo Crivelli (Italian, 1430/35-1495). Oil on wood transferred to canvas. National Gallery, London.

The painting was executed for the Annunciation Church at Ascoli Piceno. Saint Emidius was the patron saint of the city; in his hands the model of the church can be seen. The city received some liberty rights from the Pope in 1482; this explains the inscription “Libertas Ecclesiastica” at the bottom of the painting.
