Things are not as they teach us; the world is hollow, and I have touched the sky." From a dying Star Trek character. 08 Aug 06 12:07 what is the hallucination, being at work or in a mountain? 09 Dec 06 19:18 striking piece!

They become images when written down, but images of words repeated in the mind and not of the image of the thing itself." - William Burroughs the only way to find out what people were really saying was to cut up their words and get at the meanings hidden inside Forse il fatto e' che le parole e le immagini lavorano proprio in due sfere completamente dissociate ?

You have an excellent energy and great use of line and color. Well done. king king assemblage of ideas Inside Inside nothing to say on this 08 Aug 06 12:09 "Nothing to say" is a perfect title. Often we do not have words. Situations Situations Resonances inside my head from Gilles Deleuze's world : Deleuze with Guattari saw their task as that of proposing a new concept of desire. Deleuze emphasizes that one never desires something or someone, but rather always desires an aggregate (ensemble). So, there is no desire, says Deleuze, that does not flow into an assemblage, and for him, desire has always been a constructivism, constructing an assemblage (agencement), an aggregate. Desire is established and constructs in an assemblage always putting several factors into play, whereas psychoanalysis reduces desire to a single factor (father, mother, phallus), completely ignorant of the multiple, of constructivism, of assemblages. "Several factors into play" was my intention in this painting. I hope I succeded. atomiclady atomiclady Tentatively crimes crimes Bombardamenti dormi dormi Un brutto incidente = una tragedia Holds Holds Climbing falling falling falling paesaggio paesaggio la nuvola sopra la montagna (con due giraffe nascoste nel cielo dientro la nuvola) l'uomo e la montagna l'uomo e la montagna non succede solamente l'andare in montagna, succedono tante cose contemporaneamente. universal sound universal sound the first sound on earth . . . proxima estacion esperanza . . . proxima estacion esperanza let be influenced by everything that surrounds me ! woman woman the only way one can take photos is by mistake sometimes. this is what my photos look like upon my return from Mali. 22 Mar 07 13:34 This shows how is important what we know about things as said Gombrich. I didn't realize the subject is a woman before reading that the picture was taken in Mali.

Possibly maybe Possibly maybe Lately, I don’t paint much but this is one I like and I think it likes me too . . . Purple men Purple men this is an old painting (1989). At the time I was trying to learn something about painting from a friend, Pietro. I don't really remember what was happening while I was painting this, but for sure I was trying to impress him, of course i knew he wouldn't be impressed with my technique so I thought of putting his face amongst my purple friends. Ballake Sissoko and my frustration Ballake Sissoko and my frustration Getting angry to myself at night .... in the kitchen .... 31 Dec 12 19:52 Seems like getting angry with yourself isn't such a bad thing! The painting is a lot livelier and the combination of colour and additional structure come together in a nice balance here. The question is - what made you so angry? 01 Jan 13 20:10 It just happens that i don't have a studio and so i paint in my small kitchen on the floor. When this happens i take my suitcase where i keep colours and paint brushes from the balcony, i put on some music and i hope to get lost, at least just a little. When this doesn't happen i feel frustrated, boring, eaten up by nothing and pink. Malang Diebate Malang Diebate This was a painting dated 2006. I never really like it until I met Malang in Casamance in 2010, he’s Madya’ s (my kora teacher) big brother. It might seem nothing has really changed but I now like it. Here is a link to the blog where whoever is interested can see a few pictures which inspired me and eventually listen to some music and read some stories.

Whats she doing? She 05 May 14 16:46 There is a lot happening - density, push pull. Very little cliche and some nice surprising areas here and there. I like it, bravissimo! 05 May 14 17:04 What an honor as a first reaction to this lively piece... you managed to motivate Hillel to step in with some welcome words of encouragement. Kristina, take a moment to savor a happy sense of feeling pleased with yourself.Kagan.. are ya paintin' at all at all? 05 May 14 17:20 I called Hillels's comment ...... I need to understand what i'm doing. 05 May 14 17:34 Kristina... do excuse me as I'm a bit slow - I can't figure out that message of yours. What do you mean by you called his comments?And as far as not understanding what we're doing - join the (sizable and growing) club. :o) 05 May 14 17:36 I sent Hillel an email saying i wanted to show the painting. He must have felt obliged ... Perhaps ....... 05 May 14 17:54 Haha! Don't tell me - a certain female charm? Well done... we must needs muster all the arms of persuasion we possibly can. Old (Master) hands' involvement like Hillel are notoriously difficult to invoke. 05 May 14 21:10 There must be something in the words Hillel uses to describe paintings......the right words, always, powerful words. Bellissimo ! 06 May 14 00:51 No feeling of obligation Kristina, I just figured I would respond to your email here (I'm ok by the way). Your last paintings have seen a marked improvement and I felt compelled to respond. That you somehow or other got something out of the lesson of the 8 astounds me because I explained myself so poorly.Sorry, I'm not doing much painting JP, I'm too busy replacing my parts. I am not too sure that keeping people alive when their parts start wearing out is worth the effort.Everybody knows that when your vehicle gets so old that you have to start replacing everything, it's time to junk the heap.Hope you're both alright - regards to all. 06 May 14 20:14 Time to head off to Cuba Hillel. There they know how to treat old cars well. Also I'm reliably told by Kristina, who has travelled extensively on the island, that it's teeming with fully-qualified medical doctors even in the most remote of locations. In addition, I reckon you'll know just how to appreciate the good cigars, and the good music. Even a bit of tropical sunshine might step up the momentum of that cold Canadian blood circuitry of yours.My unwarranted advice is to tell Donna to convince you of a month's rest and recuperation there in the real deep south. 06 May 14 21:29 Hillel you haven't been to Cuba yet? I'm sure you'd enjoy it. They love old cars and if doctors can't help you can always try with santeria ...... :-) O O This was a gift received from friends many years ago. It was a painting of two black women at the market with fruits. I never liked it, so I used the canvas for this one. The title O was a difficult choice, too difficult.... Perhaps I should call it Desire, but what's the difference anyway? Saurus Saurus I needed the sun to like it 01 May 15 15:58 Hello Kristina... not sure what's going on here but it sure seems to be a festive piece. It's a wizz of movement and colour.Please do keep on insisting that we badly need also to celebrate! 01 May 15 22:40 Thanks JP. Today was probably the first time i looked at this under the sun, during daytime and it appeared to me as something completely new and finally also the photo taken shows more about it. It's funny how i saw it different, finished, completed .... Something detatched from me , of it's own ..... almost i asked myself who did this ..... I was happy this morning for this and celbrated all day, yes yes..... Infact. Presence of a brain Presence of a brain Painting on canvas Again Inside Out Again Inside Out I am reloading the painting again. I've only added a golden triangle (which doesn't look gold from the photo)and a nipple. Plus I've included the frame of it in the photo. Now it's back on the wall, groovin . . . 07 Jul 17 15:08 I must say I got taken aback by that frame. Having seen your paintings come together in the log I didn't expect to have them tamed by a shiny shiny window like that. Still, now that I look at it a bit more, although it does render a certain bourgeois respectability, the painting itself is, thankfully, as riotous as ever. 07 Jul 17 16:48 The painting has been finished in it's frame. I never bothered taking the canvas out of it, only to twist it upside down, yesterday. I dislike frames too but that's where it is and i guess it's the only part my husband likes : the frame ! At least it doesn't end up behind doors, that's where the canvas reside .... So the fact that it's franed and hanging on the wall makes it funky, he's the one ! and reading and reading Self-portrait. Reading my book on the red arm chair, with headphones. "Suddenly, and against all probability, a sperm whale had been called into existence, several miles above the surface of an alien planet. And since this is not a naturally tenable position for a whale, this innocent creature had very little time to come to terms with its identity" No title No title I have refinished a painting i thought was done. Why start with a new canvas.... Phase: Feb 2018 Phase: Feb 2018 I am going back to the paintings I don't particulairly like.
