Lightening / Blitz / Relamparo
Lightening / Bitz / Relamparo was the titel of an art exhibition I had in Spain a couple of years back. Thinking about a way to describe what I do and how ART comes about in general I had came with this word and fittingly translated it into the three languages I use.
Why do I do what I do? That is simple. Art is a form of communication for me. I bubble over with an idea and before I burst I convert the mental image I am pregnant with into colours and forms on a piece of canvas and give it a wee bit of my soul. But, where does the idea come from, how is it germinated? Admittedly, I roam museums, leaf high gloss magazines for inspiration but the actual moment of conception is emotionally charged. I am a walking litmus paper absorbing my suroundings till everything suddenly falls into place. A strong feeling - basically a sensation of hate, outrage or love - fires off the second when the picture surfaces from the heap of images filed away in my mind. Does a business person not feel the same when a new enterprise idea shoots through his or her mind? There is a flash of lightening. In German one speaks of a "Geistesblitz". In Castellano it is the "relamparo" which suddenly lightens up the darkness and catches the moment, immortalising it.
What does sex have to do with it?
Well, I launched a brave attempt at trying to explain this as well on my vernisage back then in Spain. I will give it a second try here too… next time...
