what is it?
the artist wouldn’t explain
but refer to aristotle instead:
‘it’s not what the aim of art is
to explain what you see on
the outward appearance of
things and subjects
but the inside significance.
you know from the movies
of stories about famous nudes
and their creators.
this one’s a sketch of a moment
expressing the innermost
stirrings of the artist
who fell in love with his female
that seemed to have come alive
thru’ one moment of coincidences
where all ingredients for a great
passion happen at an instant:
the lovers/the space/the envying
neighbours/the stealthy meeting/
most passionate encounters
on cat paws/whispers/the inner
explosion of not crying-out
at the point of orgasm –
all that in one painting
all that depicted with lines/colours/
and figures/well :
one aspect of an interpretation.
