fcuked day …

To scared to get in the shower

To scared to take a shit

To scared to breathe

To scared to breathe

It’s a motherfucking day

That I haven’t had this bad

In a long fucking while.

My money is on the fucked

Flashback bullshit.

The one where I can’t breathe …

So upside down I go,

Flat on my back …

breathing slowly

taking photos.

thats it.

the painting #feels

What I discovered today, was this shit, like the rain … also soothes shit, way faster than anything else can (except the sedatives! … gotta love the sedatives!) …

So I did the do, and enjoyed the hell out of it …

I’ve never used ink before and it turns out ink on house paint makes this marvellous mess. Btw … I re-purposed the ink from an old printer I dismembered ;)

abstract art : the Need to paint.

thats the feels today … and paint I did … threw that paint onto canvas till I felt better ;) … 1st of 2018 and I reckon theres gonna be A.Lot of this sort of shit happening … good lord I’ma gonna have to get creative with the paint sourcing ;)

All I can say, is it was a good mess and I needed it.

unfucking ‘mindfulness’.

Karakia:

Atua

Tukua

Homai to Aroha

Ae.

Translation:

My god.

I let Go.

Bring Love.

I Agree.

.1

I didn’t want to do ‘outside’ today: it’s too peopley out there … the influx of holiday makers argh …

But … I was pondering on being all mindful and shit, wondering “what the fuck am I going to take a photo of .. fuck, should’a left this whole thing till next fucking year” … when I spotted this:

So, the photograph is a macro shot of an abstract of mine on one of our walls. It’s huge … the actual painting that is. It’s part of my story, hence the blood red ;)

But, apparently one of the first rules of thumb when painting, is don’t add a semi-gloss to an acrylic. Pfft … Fuck … I didn’t know that back then, and I still do it and don’t care.

So, what I noticed today … that I love … and still love … Is the cracks … the places where it hasn’t come together but has moved around each other to form something else … the colour that the red holds without intruding on the rest …

I guess I found beauty in the ‘imperfection’ of it.

“mauri” [2017]

Mauri

mauri:

the essence

or life force

of anything

everything that is

created

has mauri

the birds

the trees

the ocean

the fish

the rocks

the mountains

all contain

mauri

our unborn

have mauri

at the smack of conception

they have mauri

that mauri

enables life

and growth

and relation

and communion

it exudes

and floats

and gushes

and flows

its mauri

mauri continues

long after

it is breathed

and inhaled

exhaled

and moaned

its mauri

te mauri

came

te mauri

left

returned to where

he was sent from

loved without being seen

touched without being felt

blessed

and gone

to the arms of the

tipuna

I

Love

You

abstract art [whitewash]

This was a process I started in last years paintings, but I hadn’t quite grasped what I wanted to express with them … other than the obvious.

This year, the #whitewash theme has presented itself throughout my new series. It’ll be interesting to see how they all turn out.

Basically though the #whitewash theme is in response to what colonisation has done to the indigenous process, thought patterns, belief systems and way of being.

They are a challenge.
