Painting is the beginning

 

the first attempts

 

to nurse, to embrace, to map and understand the wounds and mistakes

 

of history

Painting is the beginning

 

the first attempts

 

(strokes of sanity)

 

to erase, to elevate, to excel and invent new lines

 

for society’s rebirth

 

A painter

 

may have the reputation of being excluded and drawn to herself,

 

but within her making

 

her painting

 

is for the concern of all

Enter, enter, go in

 

the landscape of painting

 

awaits you

 

bright and open

 

shinning on the walls of the end

 

The colour of colour

 

the delight of vision

 

the Nature Morte of our perception

 

pinned, nailed and soaked into the piece of canvas

 

 

Forget about the orbit, the sun and the diamant ...

 

The painting

 

takes you to the very seamstress of Being

 

freed of the constant need of the body to survive

 

At some point throughout a person’s life

 

one should acquire a painting

 

- and a good one -

 

and then use it, look at it, stare at it, dwell by it,

 

it will function like an Icon of Life
