You don’t have to get a job that makes others feel comfortable about what they perceive as your success. You don’t have to explain what you plan to do with your life. You don’t have to justify your education by demonstrating its financial rewards. You don’t have to maintain an impeccable credit score.
You have to pay your own electric bill. You have to be kind. You have to find people who love you truly and love them back with the same truth. But that’s all.”
“His body smelled like a precious-wood forest; his hair, like sandalwood, his skin, like cedar. It was as if he had always lived among trees and plants.”
I’d love to hurt you
I’ve got you, Inside me
What do you care, if you want to
You should pay if you wanna go down
Don’t walk away
Don’t walk away, love
Don’t walk away
Just stay right here
Curator’s Monday 146
Federico Infante (b.1982, Chile/USA) - The Lightness of Being
Chilean-born, New York painter Federico Infante’s paintings are the honest dialogues: “I remember when I was a kid and for the first time, I heard the sentence “painting is a language,” and honestly, I don’t think it made too much sense at that time but the fact that I still remember that moment is very significant to me. That idea kept bouncing in my head creating a sequence of numerous events in my life that made me decide that the only way that I’m going to be satisfied with my paintings is if I can express myself as authentically as possible using this “language.” And that is how I start every painting - there is an honest decision to alter the elements every time that I start working so I can learn and challenge myself. Painting becomes a personal language only if I build my own way to represent things. So, yes for me the decision of the subject comes from an interaction with the expressive abstraction of my backgrounds - the character, the building or the landscape needs to emerge from this “language” because otherwise we will be imposing an idea instead of having a dialogue. And honestly, is it possible to have a language without dialogue?” (src: interview with artist by Bertrand Delacroix Gallery)

Interviewer: Are you happy?
Léa: My only way to know the world is through emotions, feelings, pleasures and sadness, laughter…You know that when I’m in a plane, I’m crazy, I clean all my table, I have OCD, I go to the bathroom and wipe the sink for hours. It’s a little inconvenient because I can’t be as crazy now because people recognize me. Last time, I felt ashamed in front of the air hostess.
Interviewer: You didn’t answer my question.
Léa: I had wine at lunch.
