Winter

I was lost. In this cold wilderness. And panic had begun to set in.

Joan Miro

8 08 2015

Joan Miro never called himself a surrealist. He experimented with surrealist techniques and had an interest in Dada but never aligned himself with any particular movement… Inspired by his Catalan roots, Miro’s landscapes make us feel the harsh contrasts of the Spanish landscapes. The painting reproduced above makes us feel the dry, almost desert-like land against the blue sky. A solitary rooster and a few scattered objects – cartwheel, stones, ladder taking our eyes up into infinity, floating clouds – all evoke the hot dry summer in an agricultural landscape. They remind me that working the land and earning a living from it is not necessarily a romanticized, pastoral idyll but more likely hard work in a difficult environment.

Daniel Cohen. He has a great eye for comedy. And you can never get too many laughs. Unless you’re around my friend, Victor Genoa, who is right out of control in the laugh department.

 





The Living Room

I loved the way you could sit in our sunken living room. Like you were in the arms of mother earth. And anything wonderful was possible.
