Ein kurzes intensives Fest, 200 x 170 cm

Das Leben ist ein Fest, ein kurzes intensives Fest*

A woman tumbling through the sky
Half man, macho like those male Expressionists**
Would she dream and fall and die
Letting go of her tomorrows
And dance her last eternal dance
Of joy, relieved from sorrows

* “Life is a celebration, a short and intense celebration”, a quote by Paula Modersohn-Becker, a female German expressionist who lived her short life intensely through her art
** the painting is inspired by male expressionist painters like Willem de Kooning. The art scene was particularly macho at that time. They would meet up at the Cedar bar. The painting arena was compared to the boxing ring.

Spring time came
Never saying
If it would stay or go
If it would shine or snow
It just happened out of the blue
Announced itself with a big bang

The fickle time stayed
Fresh green grass would start to grow
And the sky, not knowing what to do
Turned bright lemon and cadmium yellow
