Loneliness


I did paint this (or more exactly, I’ve drawn this) with pastels, a technique I do not use often… First, because I cannot afford good quality pastels. Second, because it’s a delicate technique, which needs fixing – and I was not able to find a satisfying fixing stuff… But maybe, someday, I will solve the two problems and I’ll paint more with pastels… An illustrious example give me courage: Degas…

This one is a very personal pastel – more by its subject than by anything else… The year is 2000. It represents my elder son, doing what he does most of the time: looking at movies… A lot of movies… more they are controversed and non-conventional, the better… He is the only one of my children with some interest in art – even if it isn’t painting or another simpler-to-be-done art form but the 7 th art. He realised some 9-10 home made films (with a digital video camera and a Mac with iMovie you can do it too, I suppose…) In fact, even if bizarre and sometimes violent and “controversial” , his films are surprinsingly interesting. In some of them I played a small part, too… Unfortunatelly, the raw material of films is money and that’s one thing I do not have. He’s willing to sell his future corpse to science, like the legend says Rodriguez did (to make “El Mariacchi”) but nobody manifested any interest, for now…

And he, just like myself, is “waiting for the miracle to come” (Leonard Cohen)…

    Dragul meu,

    Inainte sa citesc istoria acestei picturi, am privit-o cu atentie si am fost surprinsa sa descopar ca este o poveste a femeii care este prizoniera imaginii, instrainindu-se de SINE. Extraordinar mi se pare ca toti peretii nu sunt de fier sau beton ci dintr-un material textil sau drapati cu un material textil, in spatele caruia poate sa fie orice, deci evadarea este prezumtiv posibila. Faptul ca pe ecranul televizorului nu apare nici o “imagine” demonsetraza ca “imaginea nu exista” este o iluzie, care nu are decat rolul de a ne rapi si poate distruge existenta.
    Acum, revenind la povestea adevarata, voi cauta un text care iti va explica de ce intuitia ta a
    redat imaginea fului transpusa intr-o fetita.
    Pe scurt ideea este ca atunci cand ne pierdem asemanarea cu chipul adevaratului CREATOR, nu mai suntem barbati. Suntem eve, persoane care, indiferent de sex zamislesc diverse creatii: biologice sau artistice “muritoare”. Faptul ca fiul tau este redat foarte tanar, ma face sa sper ca mai devreme sau mai tarziu, va redeveni ceea ce suntem cu toti: lumina din lumina si va crea opere nemuritoare.
    Meriti si tu merita si el. Sunt sigura de acest lucru.
    Cu mare drag,
    c.

  2. Draga Carmen! ma bucur sa te vad (aud/citesc) din nou, la fel de spirituala ca întotdeauna! Sper si eu ca va fi cum spui…si poate ca va fi, cine stie?

  3. This painting has a Van Gogh look to it. Don’t get near your ear with any sharp objects.

  4. Scisors, razor blades and sharp kitchen knife are banned! Only some blunt knifes and some saw are allowed…With the saw I cut my cucumbers… And thanks for the reference, I hope it’s not only the occasional madness which suggested you the approachment, Bill…

  5. sa stii ca o sa cuceresc bucataria ta retro
    precis ai pus muraturi si sunci la afumat
    piciorul unui poet in saramura si foi de dafin
    cateva erori poetice inshirate pe franghia rufelor decadente
    iar eu, un epsilon descojit de miez
    un fugar pe o panza dintr-o expozitie inchisa
    din cauza de mucegai pe panze, ni se explica
    atat rece de mov in suflete
    ca un balet de papushi pe o sarma imaginara
    ca o viata irosita la carciuma cu barbati infantili
    care isi masoara orgoliul de metraj egoist
    mustata lor de culoarea cocorilor tomnateci
    caprele lunare
    rumegand din afectiunea noastra neconsumata..

    acum poti inchide cartea de bucate
    lasand un semn
    la foaia cu ciorbe pentru amantii miopi ca mine.
    ==
    sa traiesti Danule in armonia artei tale

  6. Sa traim, A! Si eu si tu si Carmen si totzi cei care dau importantza poeziei si picturii… Ca e plina lumea de materialisti…

    Mersi pentru frumosul poem – o sa-l pun in cadru…

    Dane, ai surprins exact “spiritul” lumii in care (neprefacem ca) traim…
