GAZERNICA

The Decline of Humanity's Ethos

2014

 

Gaza epitomizes the epicenter of the harrowing ethos and pathos of human conscientiousness the thesaurus to every psychological algorithm imaginable or inflictable upon a dispossessed people.

  

For more than 60 years and several generations going forward and counting, the people of Gaza who were culturally and ancestrally uprooted from their homeland have since steadfastly endured the abysmal scourge of survival and strangulated coexistence.   

 

The credibility of present day 'Psychology', therefore, cannot be given a conscientious accreditation if its scientific corpus utterly lacks any or all substantial reference to the psychological traumas inherited by Gazans and the corresponding physical catastrophes they have been continually subjected to.

 

The paintings below which also appear in Gazernica.com, have been re-titled to reflect the physiological fallout from the devastatingly political impact of the world's calibrated indifference to the plight and suffering of the Palestinian people, in particular, to the inhabitants of Gaza

DOM MARTIN

Surrealist poet, writer, artist

"Dom Martin has a special technique of expressing whatever lies deepest in the human soul, and what is more important, of the terrible and eternal problem of our presence as humanbeings in this vale of tears.


His seriousness is undoubtedly, one of the greatest -- if not the greatest ethos of his art. The man lives and reacts through what is true, or to whatever appears to him to be true, and what he executes is his truth. Hence, the intense reality of an expression of art which it appears to me is not very common . . . "

- Dr. Luis Gaspar da Silva
Poet, Statesman

November 27, 1978
