To wait

“I said to my soul, be still, and wait without hope For hope would be hope for the wrong thing; wait without love, For love would be love of the wrong thing; there is yet faith But the faith and the love and the hope are all in the waiting. Wait without thought, for you… More To wait

Love is masochistic – Cendrars

Chagall (1887-1985) “Love is masochistic. These cries & complaints, these sweet alarms. this anguished state of lovers, this suspense, this latent pain that is just below the surface, almost unexpressed, these thousand & one anxieties over the loved one’s absence, this feeling of time rushing by, this touchiness, these fits of temper, these long daydreams,… More Love is masochistic – Cendrars

today -> part two

Stanzas, Sexes, Seduction It’s good to be neuter. I want to have meaningless legs. There are things unbearable. One can evade them a long time. Then you die. The ocean reminds me of your green room. There are things unbearable. Scorn, princes, this little size of dying. My personal poetry is a failure. I do… More today -> part two

“Desire itself is movement Not in itself desirable; Love is itself unmoving, Only the cause and end of movement, Timeless, and undesiring Except in the aspect of time Caught in the form of limitation Between un-being and being.” Apollo and Daphne  :::::: BERNINI

Play the game *****

PLAY THE GAME. Endanger your work even more. Don’t be the top dog. Seek out the face-off. But be unmindful. Have no thoughts in back of your head. Keen nothing secret. Be soft and strong. Be sly, enter the fray but hate to win. Don’t observe, don’t test, but be ready for signs. Tremble, quake, shatter,… More Play the game *****

Esoteric Klee – Goethe – (and me) part 2

Klee, as a lover of lines, started drawing them sometimes in an ephemeral way, sometimes not. Klee’s creativity later on included “parallel figurations”; works he did during his “inner circle“: which means those works that are symbolic and universal in their intent and what I would name Esoteric Art: when the picture is conceived as… More Esoteric Klee – Goethe – (and me) part 2

Klee and Goethe- Part 1.

Paul Klee’s humor was always a component of his poetic vision. Parallel to this; Goethe -one of Klees’s biggest influences – wrote in his diary “Humor is born when things slip outside the orbit of reason, and reason lets itself be teased by them”.

“Learning How to Forget” : Master Duchamp

That’s what Duchamp said in a recent publication of interviews Calvin Tomkins did in the ’60’s.  When I was talking to a friend the other night he mentioned he’s interested and currently investigating the moment or lapse that happens immediately after listening to inspiring music and the visualization of that moment before the mind intervenes. I find… More “Learning How to Forget” : Master Duchamp
