When did we become so small and so apologetic? Why do we apologize for our humanity? Love what you love, and make no apologies. This is your identity. The most horrendous suspensions of freedom are self-imposed. We imprison ourselves daily, hourly.

We have one life, one shot at all the glorious things of life, and we walk about constricted, apologetic, afraid. We have so little time; we have so little space upon which to spread our love and our talents and our kindness. Run toward life fulsomely and freely.

It runs from us so quickly, like a frightened dog or youth or daylight. Chase it and care for it.

Of course art should be about something big. Something terribly big must be at stake. I don’t see this anymore. Our art is becoming terribly polite and apologetic, much like us. It slinks away like a sagging breast, empty of milk or promise or comfort.

We need to get very fervent again. We need to get jacked up.

‘Sometimes It Snows In April’ by Prince is my new jam.

BECAUSE OF COURSE

I don’t know how he hasn’t made an Instagram comment about his prescience yet because his account is completely dedicated to highlighting his own greatness and we’re okay with that.

Beyonce on the cover of OUT Magazine May 2014 issue

“There is a double standard when it comes to sexuality that still persists. Men are free and women are not. That is crazy. You can be a businesswoman, a mother, an artist, and a feminist — whatever you want to be‚ and still be a sexual being. It’s not mutually exclusive.”

Françoise Nielly (France)

Françoise Nielly’s painting is expressive, exhibiting a brute force, a fascinating vital energy. Oil and knife combine to sculpt her images from a material that is, at the same time, biting and incisive, charnel and sensual. Whether she paints the human body or portraits, the artist takes a risk: her painting is sexual, her colors free, exuberant, surprising, even explosive, the cut of her knife incisive, her color pallet dazzling.
