Hunting season

I'm so happy for two reasons. Yes that new collage is done and it breaks my heart to put it for sale!
And then, Martin has installed a new tool in my gallery... when you click on a painting, the quality of the image is truly good (which was not the case before because the image adapted to the size of the screen, or something like that). That is so so cool! : ))

That collage about hunting is supposed to tell a lot.

If you're curious about the content, you get details just here : )

Crazy cowgirls vs floating cowboys


Drugstore Cowboy par YopEater

(I'm having a little thing with Gus Van Sant at the moment. I had never seen these two. Really loved them. Crazy ones!)

PS: "Even cowgirls get the blues" ... such a good title!!!

Conan's love bites

Do I mind showing legs and skin? lol, no of course not, I don't mind, actually I don't care.

But that kitten playing with my shorts' threads, the surprise of the claws in the skin.. followed by the caress from his fur... the sun and its shadows.. a simple moment, simple pleasure.Little Heaven.

Loup 's mojo

In case you wonder, a mojo is a magic charm or spell ....

I think Loup gets some mojo already with older girls ...

I'm looking for you

your heat
your sweat
your hopes
your sand
your promises
... your mirages.

Summertime, where are you hiding?

I want to walk in slow motion, to feel the wetness on my skin, to dream of ice cubes as I dream of chocolates.

And now this is my favourite one. (Oh forget about the Janis Joplin one, I can't stand it...)

When size matters a little bit, but not really

Run like hell

When I'm in Bretonie, there's one thing I love to do there, that I hate doing in Paris. It's running.

When I run there, alone, with animals around, birds and rabbits... I do enjoy every second of it.

When I run, I don't know if it's to escape something, or to reach something. I like both concepts together. What I know is that I do not run calmly, lol... like slow motion to watch the surroundings, I need to push limits here.

My favourite part though is that break I make when my body just begs for it, just before getting on the way back. A few minutes for myself. Luxury.

Art made of blood, semen, piss and shit?

Soooo shocking!!! Yummmy! :-)))

Andres Serrano, I knew him from this fantastic photo he made for Metallica's album, Load

the original artwork was called "Semen and Blood III", the visual was actually made of bovine semen and blood between two sheets of plexiglass.

Andres said about it: "Lars and Kirk were very into abstract art pretending they were gay. I think they knew it bugged me. It was a statement around all that. I love art, but not for the sake of shocking others. I think the cover of Load was just a piss-take around all that. I just went along with the make-up and all of this crazy, stupid shit that they felt they needed to do."

The thing is... I LOVED that cover, that visual from the very beginning. It was kinda disgusting, looked like blood and saliva to me. But the movement, the shape, it seemed very alive. The colours too.
Once I learnt it was made of blood and semen, I found it even more beautiful. Just regret it was of bovine origin and not human.

Maybe this Piss Christ is his most famous work, because of the controversy it brought...
(Recently in Avignon, the photography frame was even destroyed ... The gallery director plans to reopen the museum with the damaged works   "so people can see what barbarians can do ").
This Piss Christ is actually a photo of a plastic crucifix immersed in the photographer's own urine.
Serrano defended his work as a criticism of the "billion-dollar Christ-for-profit industry" and a "condemnation of those who abuse the teachings of Christ for their own ignoble ends". His work was also damaged in Australia, and neo-Nazis got violent at a Serrano exhibition in Sweden in 2007.
Enough controversy to make it really interesting to me. Besides, honestly I love that pic. I did not know how it was made, but I found some warmth in it, the light, everything, I liked it. Now I know it's a Christ in urine, it makes it crazily interesting! I love it.
Yes it's shocking, but the criticism are not always against religion (mine would be of course!)... Some say it's the Christ's glory despite the world ugliness, etc.
Sister Wendy tells her view in the most adorable and open-minded way here.
Yes, shocking and provocative... but it pushes people to talk, and I do love that!
You can see more of his work here
I love his work on weapons, guns, the "objects of desire" series.. (btw, I love the titles he gives to his art pieces, so very important!)
I'm still wondering about his next show  ... It's pretty extreme... huhu... : ))
I was surprised by that Evil shit ... not by the shit itself (which looks like a yummy brownie, really), but the title of it "Evil shit". Makes my imagination running already. Which Evil ? And if Evil can produce such shit, it makes Evil very real... you can build a whole story around. I like it. ** shrugging **

Je t'aime, moi non plus

Conan and Satan, both aware Summer is in the air already.
(I truly thought Spring would be enough to them, but nenene!)

(from youtube): "this song should be sent into space to prepare aliens for the French"... lol !

Some things that you find

are beyond your control

Like... there's thunder, it's raining, I'm just back in Paris. It's hot. My imagination wanders through the rain drops. Beyond my control.

I love you and you're beautiful.

And I love that song : )
