INTRODUCTION to the Che Pasta Cafe (Honolulu) exhibit
This show is brought to you as reproduction of what is digitally always there on your desktop.
The exhibit is conceived by the artist, for the world Webism Group. Their works are rapidly gaining recognition as a convincing new 'ism' (the first of this millennium?) through online unique global artist group projects. Digital art that you, the viewer, can interact with, and at your convenience, or at the same announced time for all the different time zones.
The show is part of a larger group challenge; I invited other Webists to also create and post on the Internet their perceived images of Hawaii. This linking of the Che Pasta Cafe show with simultaneously displayed other world artists' works presented online provide for me, a fellow Webist, this exhibit's inclusion in the new global art movement of presenting original art online. For me artists become more than contacts that can lead to overseas shows. It's access to creative minds from different cultures that display in alliance, new global visual art that builds an alternative global visual arts scene and entity, and with dated published documentation.
For example, I have curated Truly Virtual Web Art Museum since 1997 while I continued art software processing. You can go there and see archived, always available, online digital art exhibitions granted to aproximately 50 world online artists. Shows remain virtual and accessible, a 24/7 world museum stop on your desktop. As such the accumulating art remains acessible as orginal works of onlne art, now historical after the passing of "show dates." There are works in the "permanent collection" here at least seven years old, when the "museum" first went online.
You can GO TO this particular Webism global show, the Che Pasta show addition to the Webists' online exhibition, "Destination Hawaii". Be aware that the world can see this show digitally, as just one of many artists' vision on the subject of Hawaii and as a destination. The works are objective artifacts of multiple world views of contemporary Hawaii and as a place to visit. It should be required viewing by the staff at the Hawaii Tourist Authority. As a local boy I am curious to see Hawaii through foreign eyes, then become enlightened to others' perceptions of the islands so I can grow as a local artist and individual.
PYGOYA: ABOUT THE CONCEPTUAL CONTEXT OF THIS LOCAL ART SHOW
I AM A MEMBER OF THE WEBISTS, A NEW ART GROUP DEDICATED TO FILLING IN ORIGINAL ART AND CONCEPT/PROJECTS FOR ONLINE VISUAL ARTS CYBER CULTURE. IN SUCH A CONTEXT, THIS ART SHOW IS A REPRODUCED ART EXPERIENCE THROUGH COPY PRINT. IT WAS DOWNLOADED AND PRINTED FROM THE ORIGINAL WEBIST PAGE. THROUGH SUCH TRADITIONAL VENUE WE GAIN LOCAL RECOGNITION AND SHARE OUR PICTURES OFFLINE. MANY VIEWERS LATER GO ONLINE TO THE LATEST GLOBAL REAL TIME VIRTUAL SHOWS, NOW KNOWING WHERE TO SEARCH.
PLEASE DO PURCHASE A PIECE OF ART HISTORY, AS WE WEBISTS CAN USE THE SUPPORT TO DO OUR CALLING. WE SEARCH FOR CYBER PATRONS THAT WANT TO HELP BUILD ONLINE VISUAL ARTS CULTURE THAT PROMOTES WORLD PEACE AND HARMONY. ALL ARTISTS NEED SUPPORT.
