Tres y Muerte

Tres y Muerte by Clinock. 17×14 in. 43×46 cm. Acrylic on paper.

Chapala, Jalisco, Mexico. October 2019.

“there is a place in the heart that
will never be filled

a space

and even during the
best moments
and
the greatest
times

we will know it

we will know it
more than
ever

there is a place in the heart that
will never be filled
and

we will wait
and
wait

in that space.”


―  Charles bukowski

Chapala, Jalisco, Mexico. October 2019.

“Making art isn’t an aesthetic operation; it’s a form of magic designed as a mediator between this strange, hostile world and us; a way of seizing the power by giving form to our terrors as well as our desires.”

Pablo Picasso.

Lola and Smudge

Lola and Smudge

Lola and Smudge. 17×14 in. 43×46 cm. Acrylic on paper by Clinock.

I painted at an artist residency in Chapala, Jalisco, Mexico in October 2019.

My Mexico paintings are always very influenced by my sensual experiences in this other culture that I have grown to love over many years of creative visits.

Lola and Smudge is the first of the Chapala paintings that I will post here until they are done.

just spring

 

rite-of-spring

In Just-
spring          when the world is mud-
luscious the little
lame balloonman

whistles          far          and wee

and eddieandbill come
running from marbles and
piracies and it’s
spring

when the world is puddle-wonderful

the queer
old balloonman whistles
far          and          wee
and bettyandisbel come dancing

from hop-scotch and jump-rope and

it’s
spring
and

the

goat-footed

balloonMan          whistles
far
and
wee
