faith in Black

so yes i paint

big paintings

on drop cloths

middle sizes, small too

on wood, on paper

in black

black oil (black ivory)

with a squeegee

or my fingers

i use gloves

still very direct process:

i put the drop cloth or the wood panel on the floor or the paper sheet on the table

and i go:

i put the oil paint directly on the surface, directly from the tube

and i go, happens what happens

the beauty of the discovery and joy of the irruption : oh what did i do what did i do ?

it is fast, very fast

it wants to touch the whole, the whole all

i am a creature of the earth, quite big and very small, who breathes and will die and

i got to know lately the order is like this:

-the planets

-the stars

-the galaxies

-the universe

= d u s t

so i do invocations, i dance around the fire, i embrace everything for a short short while

i think with words that bang together

and let go
