LUCA DEL BALDO

Painting on death, face and body

Bien plus que le squelette, c'est la chair,
je veux dire la charogne, qui nous trouble et nous alarme;
qui nous apaise aussi.


(Emil Cioran, Paleontologie)



Clement Greenberg: "In today's world, it's impossible to paint a face."


De Kooning's response: "That's right. And it's impossible not to."
