Inside My Mind

there is always art. in the search of it.
the interested party rather than the interesting – one.
beyond the landmasses  connected by a bridge
-Schiele before the war – Colville witnessed afterwards.

there is the refrigerator. the bedroom
womanhood for a day celebrated
‘but the boys are coming home and you need a rest Rosie’.
-sing for us on stage. don’t move – this is England.

there is always art. and i search for you.
the woman whose mind is more interesting
and our conversations can go all night.
-if i only i could paint – but drawing letters exposes you….

do not move from the sunlit window’ – (my own quote)

there is always art. in the search of it.
student before the student
master of the generations studying one another
homage to the teacher.

lettered pictures…..you…..not on the wall
but in my hand….

* Schiele before the war – Colville witnessed afterwards:

Egon Schiele; 12 June 1890 – 31 October 1918 was an Austrian painter who created THE BRIDGE an oil painting in 1913

Alex Colville: 24 August 1920 – 16 July 2013 was a Canadian painter who created THE NIJMEGEN BRIDGE while on tour as war artist with the Canadian Military during WW2 in Holland

*there is the refrigerator. the bedroom

Alex Colville painting entitled REFRIGERATOR 1977

Egon Schiele painting entitled BEDROOM – which is very similar to the Vincent Van Gogh painting of the same title

* ‘But the boys are coming home and you need rest Rosie:

Rosie the Riveter is a cultural icon of the United States, representing the American women who worked in factories and shipyards during World War II until the end when they were laid off to allow the men to go back to work

*sing for us on stage. don’t move – this is England:

The Windmill Theatre in London was  a variety and revue theatre. The Windmill remains best known for its nude tableaux vivants, which began in 1932 and lasted until its reversion to a cinema in 1964.
