Just had first afternoon in studio since the end of term. Have spent the day prepping for new large scale work. Note, how white it all is, not for long… Sad news today of the suicide of Robin Williams, so often we lose our artists to overdose or suicide. We all face the same darkness, some of us need to pierce it stronger, harder with more struggle than others. Suicide the biggest killer of men in first world countries. That’s raw desperation, the tick tock all of a sudden ‘ just fucking do it’ o’clock.
A few weeks ago, a boyfriend of mine said..’We all fear death and question our place in the universe but the artists job is to not succumb to despair but to find an antidote for the emptiness of existence’…
True that. Rest in peace Captain, nana’s got the whiskey. x x x
