Art Talk

The lovers

The other man

"I get it."

"That would be a first."

“You have a thing for the nerd.”



“He never looks at me, though.”

“He sits like he’s got something
to hide. Know what I'm sayin'?”

“He’s inscrutable . . . an enigma . . . a-a-a genius!
But why do I bother. You'd never understand.”

“I understand. I understand that a dude doesn’t sit
like that unless his creator short-changed him.”


“You’re the one with all her marble hanging
out and about. Heh. Not that I mind, baby . . . ”


“That’s it. He’s so dead. I’m gonna—”


“Seriously, just watch me—”

"Uh huh. You do that, Samson. Meanwhile, I'll just
lie here and dream what he could be thinking of . . ."

"I bet I know."

“You don't have the slightest inkling! Not the
first clue. Oh, but it's no use! No use at all.
I'll never know. My white matter will never be able
to penetrate his grey matter . . . the dark depths
of such humanity . . . that fine, tormented soul . . ."

The Cleveland Museum of Art.)

OMG. Too funny!!

Damn, thinking grey man. I had such hopes for you. ;)

Great job! Thanks for the letting me in on the truth behind the austerity. I always suspected the statuary were putting on airs.

It's always about that, isn't it?

Charles Gramlich said...

I didn't know classic sculpture could be so fun.

Sarah Hina said...

Jason, who knows? Maybe he had some great insights on that subject...or maybe he is sitting like that for a reason. How embarrassing! And cold. ;)

Thank you! I love anthropomorphic art.

Chris, indeed it is. Or at least, oftener than we'd guess, I bet...

Charles, don't get me started. I could have a whole separate blog for this stuff. In fact...

White matter, grey matter... I guess it doesn't matter. Men will be men, eh?

(Sorry it took me so long to get over here today... I've been reading a good book!)

Sarah Hina said...

Aine, what else is there to think about after awhile? Must get very boring sitting there...and, uh, frustrating, too.

(um, I guess I'll forgive you... ;))

Very clever, Sarah!


It would be fun to see a whole book of those! Keep up the great creative work. :)

Fun-frickin'-tastic, Sarah! Just excellent!

Sarah Hina said...

K, thanks. :) It's fun to mess around a little, and try to capture something light-hearted.

Now, back to business. ;)

Vesper, yay! I'm glad you smiled at this. I, myself, had a giggle. :D
