"MA CHÈRE AMIE, LE SOLEIL SE LÈVE DERRIÈRE LÁBSTRACTION."

MY DEAR FRIEND,

IT’S GOOD TO HEAR FROM YOU. SO THE SUN IS RISING BEHIND
ABSTRACTION, GOOD TO KNOW! I LIKE THE GRIN IN THE TITLE AND
THE CHEERFULLY OFFSET POLYGONS.

YOU KNOW IT’S ALWAYS SAID THAT PAINTING IS DEAD. MAYBE THE
ACT OF WORKING IN A DEAD MEDIUM IS EXACTLY WHAT INTERESTS
THOSE WHO DO IT; THIS OVERLY LADEN, FROZEN, LIFELESS—THE FACT

MY DEAR FRIEND,

IT’S GOOD TO HEAR FROM YOU. SO THE SUN IS RISING BEHIND
ABSTRACTION, GOOD TO KNOW! I LIKE THE GRIN IN THE TITLE AND
THE CHEERFULLY OFFSET POLYGONS.

YOU KNOW IT’S ALWAYS SAID THAT PAINTING IS DEAD. MAYBE THE
ACT OF WORKING IN A DEAD MEDIUM IS EXACTLY WHAT INTERESTS
THOSE WHO DO IT; THIS OVERLY LADEN, FROZEN, LIFELESS—THE FACT
THAT IT’S ACTUALLY IMPOSSIBLE TO BEAR, TO TAKE. IS THAT IT? NOT
TO FORGET: PAINTING AS CODE FOR ART, AS A REFERENCE MEDIUM, AS
THEY SAY. AND YOU HAVE GONE FOR TWO FURTHER CODES WITHIN
THE CODE: MOTIF AND WORK PROCESS. THE TIMELESS, REALLY. THAT’S
WHAT IT’S ABOUT FOR YOU, RIGHT? ABOUT PAINTING AS A TIMELESS
AFFAIR INTO WHICH YOU EMBED YOUR ABSTRACTED SUNRISES AND
EXHIBITED FRAMES.

AND THAT COMES BACK TO YOU AS A PAINTER, AS A STYLISED FIGURE
WITH A STRIPED, FLANNEL SHIRT AND CAP—PLEASE—WHO, IN TUNE
WITH NATURE, A LONER, SEEKS OUT THE ETERNAL QUIET OF THE SUNRISE
AND THE STUDIO, WHO CASUALLY WIPES HIS PAINTBRUSH ON HIS
TRACKSUIT PANTS, AND WHO IS AHEAD OF THE GAME IN THE QUEST
FOR WISDOM. THERE’S NO ESCAPE FROM THESE KINDS OF FIGURES,
BECAUSE THEY’RE INSIDE OF US, JUST LIKE THE MALICIOUS WRITER-ASFAILED-
ARTIST OR THE BRUTALLY HONEST FRIEND.

BUT AS IS USUALLY THE CASE, THESE FIGURES ARE NEVER TRUTHFUL.
BECAUSE I CAN SENSE JUST HOW MUCH YOU PUT YOURSELF INTO THIS
THING ART, IT’S NOT TRUE. BECAUSE I CAN SEE THAT THIS LONGING
THAT YOU ARE LIVING OUT IS REALLY THERE, IT’S NOT TRUE. BECAUSE
I KNOW THAT YOU KNOW ALL THIS AND DO IT ANYWAY, IT’S NOT TRUE.
FOR THAT IS—AT LEAST, PERHAPS—ALL THAT REMAINS, I MEAN THAT
DESPITE-IT-ALL, THAT PERSEVERANCE. AND THAT IT HURTS, THAT’S
THE MAIN THING. A FRIEND OF MINE ALWAYS SAYS THAT YOU’VE GOT
TO GO WHERE IT HURTS, SO I HOPE THAT WHAT YOU DO IS HURTING.
AND IT SHOULD HURT US, TOO, ALL OF US.

IN THIS SPIRIT, MY FRIEND, KEEP UP THE GOOD WORK!
AND BYE FOR NOW.

J.
