2014 – 2017 ‘ The Artist & His Female Nude ‘ Oil On Canvas

The human condition in contemporary painting is a subject that I’ve explored for a long time in painting , through languages of all kinds in Art , after 27 years of exploration of this huge subject .   I can finally say that this painting is my breakthrough painting.

‘The relationship between the Artist & his Muse is a complex subject  drama and love . The narrative begins into which journey it takes , one must wait and see … the visual journal continues my friends …….IMG_1456

The Great Chilean Poet Pablo Neruda and quite simply falling in Love

This Particular poem has great significance in my life as a  Artist and a man , it inspired and introduced me to a wonderful woman full of beauty courage and truth and from that moment I fell in love with her  for eternity .

‘ Tonight I can write the saddest lines ‘

Tonight I can write the saddest lines .

write for example , ‘ The night is shattered and the blue stars shiver in the distance .’

The night wind revolves in the sky and sings .

Tonight I can write the saddest lines .

I love her , and she loves me too.

Through nights like this one I held her in my arms .

I kissed her again and again under the endless sky .

she loves me and I love her too.

How  could one not have loved her great still eyes

Tonight I can write the saddest lines .

To think that I do not have her . To feel that I have lost her .

To hear the immense night , still more immense without her .

And the verse falls to the soul like dew to the pasture .

 

what does it matter that my love could not keep her .

The night is shattered and she is not with me .

This is all.In the distance someone is singing . In the distance .

My soul is not satisfied that it has lost her .

My sight searches for her as though to go to her .

My heart looks for ,and she is not with me .

My voice tried to find the wind to touch her hearing ..

Another’s .She will be another’s . Like my kisses before her .

Her bright body , her infinite eyes .

Because through the nights like this one I held her in my arms .

My soul is not satisfied that it is lost her .
