Some more cardboard plants pretending to be real plants.
instead of clogging up my tumblr with paint macro photos i’ve turned an old cargo account into a process journal because i prefer using this place to just document stuff i like and flickr sucks
fickle minded fickles on Flickr.

Anna Gribanova（Анна Грибанова Russian, b.1981）
Clarice Lispector, from Água Viva
Sometimes I get electrified when I see animals. I’m now hearing the ancestral cry within me: I no longer seem to know who is the creature, the animal or me. And I get all confused. It seems I get scared of facing up to stifled instincts that I’m forced to acknowledge in the presence of the animal.
I knew a “she” who humanized animals talking to them and giving them her own characteristics. I don’t humanize animals because it’s an offense—you must respect their nature—I am the one who animalizes myself. It’s not hard and comes simply. It’s just a matter of not fighting it and it’s just surrendering.
Nothing is more difficult than surrendering to the instant. That difficulty is human pain. It is ours. I surrender in words and surrender when I paint.
