That's the title of one of my favourite songs. The most lethal, the most essential thing is to hear your own voice. Also, keeping up with the idea of writing as catharsis, this one blog is dedicated all to myself. More solipsism would be hard to find. And I like it like that. Oh, and this is a queer (and self-proclaimed 'ADULT') blog so go ahead, make your day... mine is done.
The first time I saw @clementlegrand's work I could not stop thinking about Picasso's drawings. You know which, right? The one-line pencil drawings that Picasso did that you cannot tell where they start and where they end? They have always fascinated me. I love that sense of movement, of artistry, of easiness. I've always said it, if it looks easy when the artist does it, it probably is very difficult to achieve.
Add to that a touch of Mondrian, a homoerotic disposition and a brush with the classics and I'm hooked. I love his references and the idea that art can quote art without looking like an imitation. All his work has a playful yet erotic disposition that really talks to me. I like the idea of two men getting it on, have you noticed?
I think that artists like Legrand, who work with different media and experiment with different outlets, are the most interesting. Another artist whose work I would not mind on my walls, mind you. So if you are one of Instagram's denizens, you should give him a follow. He's super nice and he sometimes lets his followers look at where his inspiration comes from.
I would not mind having that last one on my wall. It does bring back memories...
P.S. and I love his philosophy: "ATTENTION: ÂME TORRIDE, NE PAS S’ABSTENIR."
