Thank you Rose!

Thank you Rose!

Hey Rose,

After seeing your exhibition "Picky People Notice" at the SMAK last Monday, I realized that I was on the wrong track.  

I had forgotten to be pure and work from my gut.
I had repressed the fact that the support (= the material being worked on) is an extension of what is being painted and is almost as important to me as the subject.
I had become a slave of the like (see my work "Sitting like a dog in our ordinary life") and thought I only had to paint perfect pictures.
I had become afraid of shocking people because I think differently. 
I forgot I live in the year 2023.

I want to paste, rip, glue, shout, throw, tell and share opinions again.
I want to be myself again. 
I want to be different again.

I was dead for a quarter of a century.

I am rehabilitating as we speak Rose,
Thanks for reading me,
