Kiss: The Seal of Bliss
Categories: art, love

By Michelina Docimo

Ancient lovers believed a kiss would literally unite their souls, because the spirit was said to be carried in one’s breath. ~ Eve Glicksman

When I started Myartobiography, I included a few pieces that didn’t make the cut because I felt there was still something there.  I thought about the time that went in to speaking with artists, looking at their work, thinking about their words, and then interpreting these connecting moments and creating a new body.  Doing this reminded me of the ending of Cinema Paradiso and how Alfredo collected all the kissing scenes that had been cut out of the movie reels and saved them for Toto.  If you haven’t seen the movie, you may be thinking – where is she going with this?  Maybe you have seen the movie and you’re still thinking – where is she going with this. I’m going to a place where words are replaced with sweet airy nothings and by a miracle we’re still connected.  Enjoy these videos on the art of kissing and kisses in art.  Happy Valentine’s Day.

  2. PERFECT reflection for Valentine’s Day, Michelina! What you are creating here with your site is the sight-sound-motion equivalent of an art journal: from sight-only sketchbook to
    virtually-expanded book…It’s so nice you share it!
