” Will it be here… a place which will not elude us ? “

“Will it be here that we shall find a place
which will not elude us, or which if it remains
does not exert on us a culpable attraction?

Or must we, leaning over the deck and
watching the shores glide by,
move forever onward?”

― André Gide, Urien’s Voyage

“Painting over misdeeds… Art refused to wait”


“Art should comfort the disturbed and disturb the comfortable.”

– Banksy


Not every artist makes pretty and profitable pictures.

Some artists have a need to say something that matters right now. Banksy elevates and summarizes a visual ‘speech’ about mankind’s many and varied questionable behaviors without regard to personal profit or aggrandizement.

These Two haikus evolved this morning after reading the news article below (about the origins and current statements of graffiti art).

Image: One of the Banksy murals that appeared in Paris, reworks Jacques-Louis David’s painting “Napoleon Crossing the Alps.” and references a French law banning head coverings in public.

Cruelty and greed

“…the two most beautiful words in the English language”

“Summer afternoon – summer afternoon; to me those have always been the two most beautiful words in the English language.”

Henry James


“Some of us aren’t meant to belong. Some of us have to turn the world upside down…”

 

“Some of us aren’t meant to belong.
Some of us have to turn the world upside down
and shake the hell out of it until we
make our own place in it.”

― Elizabeth Lowell, Remember Summer
