Inside the trickster's head:)
The monoprint of the firestone that I used in the rara avis dc is my trickster and trigger.
Because it't also a face, a comet, an island and a bird and maybe a sleeping beauty.
This week's theme for the drawing challenge is "trickster".

Reflecting on the theme of this weeks drawing challenge,
"the coat", the kimono passed my mind.
I've used one of the images of dc 159 as starting point for a
And found on the web this painters coat here
And also this: "coat" poem by Yeats.
William Butler Yeats, 1916
I made my song a coat
covered in embroideries
out of old mythologies
from heel to throat;
but the fools caught it,
wore it in the world’s eyes
as though they’d wrought it.
Song, let them take it,
for there’s more enterprise
in walking naked.

It's about 20 years ago that I've made these pieces.
In search for meaning and wondering why after the passing of my father.
I started with two pieces but soon I decided to combine them.
They're painted and collage, each +/- 20 x 30 cm, 8 x 12 inch.
A kind of key, a reference or a clue, and still good memories ...
And his tool was the Morse key.
And another "key" was on my mind.
Constantin Brancusi, The beginning of the world, 1916

|"Under the boardwalk"|
Looking back at my exhibition (link) of 2012 where I showed my
yellow collages on a white background, I wondered how they
would look on a colored background.
By using photoshop I've colored the background. Who's afraid of ...:)
Just click the images to see a larger version. The white image is the original one.
