DEAR REDAS, STEWART AND ALL THE ART STRIKE FOLK,

  

Here are 3 studies of the renewed symbol of art strike (made with deep respect to source image and with high disdain to traditions) + this letter is an example (manual) how to place it/them in official letters.

 

(I think the original 2 hands breaking the brush should develop following the logic of trialectics.)

 

In 2 of sketches (d cut and e cut): 

 

one can still feel the anachronistic heritage of zetocentrism, but the third (c) comes back to anarchistic letter A which stands behind the original symbol: 

 

 

During the work one embarrassing question showed up – urgency to deal with the number of left and right hands – what ratio to apply or in case all hands are the same if the proper one is the left or the right one. The variant c offers a very simple solution: to reverse when needed. 

I actually suggest using the symbol each time in both variants: normal way (all hands right) in the upper right corner and the reversed one (all left) in upper left corner. This leads us to kind of in between way – that on the symbols are each time 3 hands (trialectics), but we constantly use 2 symbols to balance left and right hands and their symbolic meaning (dialectics).    

WHAT A SHAME WE DO NOT HAVE 3 HANDS!
