Visual Arts and Design

There are two of us in this affair,
painting and me,
It takes its own time,
making something, to take time to look at.

We fight and fuck for as long as it takes,
it takes its own time!

Making the complex less so,
revealing the most basic meaning,
living through painting: unique being,
NOT a plastic facsimile, one of many,
NOT made for instances,
NOT made to be thrown away!

Painting is not easy,
doesn’t have to look pretty,
returns humanity to humanity.

Starts dialogues,
changes things, but I am not sure how or what.

Paint and I, together, time to find out.
