Sunday Random Quote

Sunday, September 30th, 2007

A quote from Karel Appel that was written on the wall of the KMSKA in Antwerp. Here’s my best effort to a translation:

I never try to ‘make’ a painting,
it’s a scream, it’s naked,
it’s like a child, it’s like a caged tiger.
I am the surgeon of space
and paint human spaces.
My painting tube is like a rocket
that writes in its own space.

Karel Appel 1957

My last piece of Brussels Airport art. It was hidden behind some ugly internet café, but the view in the other direction was a little bit better.

Considering the subject, I really like the light effect on my first photo. As you can see on the second photo this was just a coincidence, but I think it definitely adds soe musteriosity to the subject. Maybe somebody should try to experiment with lighting and paintings. No, that’s probably been done before as well, but I wouldn’t know of any artist who did…

By the way, I am completely aware that I still have a crappy phone camera. It really needs replacement if I want to take more and more photos of art I come across.
