Return to a world of art and poetry

Lucian Freud

Impressions upon a visit to Lucian Freud´s exhibition in Lousiana, Denmark.
 
Solitude is heavy, our subjective isolation is inescapable. The eyes gaze nowhere, time trickles away, endlessly. The only task left for these subjects is to endure the blankness of temporality. For time flows so slowly it appears to be still. There is no resistance, a species of quiet resignation, the carnality of their human condition is effortlessly lived. Their globular faces weigh them down as if they were made of lead. The overworked faces manifest the elimination of all activity; which has turned life into a simple and plain permanence.
 
There is no despair, just a timeless patience. An imposed fortitude in the regions of choiceless existence in which they sojourn.
