you gotta see this if you haven't. i hadn't til yesterday. paintings by gustav klimt that were lost in a fire. so we only have the black and white photo of it. but it is amazing to behold. he's my man, him. says of himself "i'm not particularly interesting" and it is true. what silly things people ask artists to which there is no answer. but you gotta ask the right questions, then the insides speak. or simply look at his work, there is his inside. ask the work, not the artist. ask it what it tells you. this painting is called "medizin".. and it cures. and it kills in the end. you see death amidst? yes, swallow it. it comes, smiling. with a serpent's kiss. is what i think when i look at this. love.
