Mark Lombardi: Art and Conspiracy

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

 Talon    716




Neo-conceptual artist, Mark Lombardi, created elaborate diagrams detailing the “the uses and abuses of power” in what he called Narrative Structures. One of Lombardi’s most famous Narrative Structures was “George W. Bush, Harken Energy, and Jackson Stephens, ca 1979–90.” This particular diagram drew connections between James Bath and the Bush and Bin Laden families.

Lombardi tragically committed suicide in 2000 at the age of 48. (Though some, like his mother, consider his “suicide” dubious and suspect foul play.)

12 years after his death, a documentary about Lombardi and his art was released. The film, Mark Lombardi: Death-Defying Acts of Art and Conspiracy directed by Mareike Wegener, delves into Lombardi’s painstaking research process, “which filled thousands of note cards and file cabinets.” Wegener sets out to position Lombardi’s art not only within the neo-conceptual framework, but within the “centuries-old traditions of landscape painting.”

However, what’s particularly interesting about Lombardi are not necessarily the conspiracy connections he explored in his work, but the conspiracies surrounding his death, 9/11, and his art.

That power (life, influence, magick) moves to a pattern is to my mind a give-in, mapping it is probably best suited to the artistic rather than the logical mind.

Think golden-ratio, earth-grid, lay-lines and the such...things we understand little but which may/do underline the natural order of things. 

The tells are there for great minds to see, but those same tells break minds too.
