Ahhhh must have attempted left quadrant of this painting about a dozen times, Ive thrown absolutely everything at it including thge kitchen sink 🙄its about 12 paintings rolled into one..feels right now🙏🙌I had to sort of invent the foliage/ flowers Van Gogh being the one that illuminated the way with his textured flowers..interestingly enough they say it was Meniere's that killed him.. incidently have also been diagnosed with Meniere's only about a month and a half ago, have lost complete hearing in my left ear..its like losing a limb..most difficult 2 months of my life..currently rehabilitaing my body to get my strength back as I was in a vegetative state...Im not the type to feel sorry for myself if I did that Id be in a veryyy bad place...perhaps it was all the work I did with disabled people & saw how crippling their disabilities were some could not walk eat or pass a bowel motion without someone else doing it for them you realise people are struggling with things that are unimaginable. I was compelled to stay light because my worries seemed so trivial compared to what they we're dealing with everyday. Fact is its hell but you just can't give up Ive abandoned alot of dreams but I shall still paint.

“Where Do We Come From? What Are We? Where Are We Going?” A personal favorite, French artist Paul Gauguin’s “D'où Venons Nous / Que Sommes Nous / Où Allons Nous.” These are the most profound questions we can ask. #Gauguin said the painting should be read from right to left: the three women with a child symbolize the beginning of life; the searching young man symbolizes the precariousness of Being; and, according to Gauguin, "the old woman approaching death appears reconciled and resigned to her thoughts, and at her feet a strange white bird symbolizes the futility of words or the uselessness of vain words.” The blue idol in the background symbolizes “the Beyond."
Connaissez-vous le principe du marathon de lecture ? Non ? Et bien, mon petit bonheur de cette semaine aura été de me lancer dans cette expérience d’une grande richesse littéraire et humaine. Je vous raconte ? C’est parti !

Clio is the muse of history, daughter of Zeus, as all the other muses, and daughter of Mnemosyne, the goddess of memory. The name mainly means ‘to recount’, ‘to make famous’, and she is always represented with a book in her hand or with a set of tablets. She is also often defined as ‘the Proclaimer.

Passing the @louisvuitton store on Fifth Avenue recently, I was surprised by the pursemaker’s use of Gauguin’s Tahitian artwork, as part of a @jeffkoons collab. The art is beautiful, but the acts behind it become problematic the deeper you look. And it seems as though few of our cultural gatekeepers are interested in looking deeply.
As onlookers, do we have a moral obligation if we know art was created by immoral ends? In my new essay I try to identify a middle ground of what can and should be done. To focus on a concrete problem and solution, I zero’ed on one approach — but there are many out there and I hope you’ll share what you think. Link in bio.
