Am in no mood for longish posts. I want to be parsimonious with words...adopt a minimalist approach, a bit like those traditional Japanese rooms, holding the bare essentials.
Been checking some Iraqi artwork, I am fanatic of Iraqi art...I usually get very excited, almost ecstatic...I surprised myself this time...It felt drab, dull, bland ...lost its luster, lost that quality of gripping me...of taking a hold of me and leaving me breathless... almost lifeless.
How come ?
A general fatigue no doubt. The artist must be tired too.
