Break a leg

Available from
Printed image size
60x60 cm

"break a leg" acrylics on panel,
flowers are given when a performance is complete.. you can’t say good luck upfront but have to say break a leg.. otherwise it’s bad luck.. what if we give the flowers upfront will this change the state of mind of the performer, will it be a less good or even better performer because you praised him before he delivered? Anyway it’s just a role someone played, we all know this but it can get under our skin as if it’s a real thing.. I wonder if looking at a performance it changes the way you look at things afterwards and influences your feature decisions.... I think it thing it’s certain it’s nice to be distracted every once and a while and not think about our day to day life…

Divertissement series

For our pleasure… to entertain.. more interesting what kind of feeling do we get from this entertainment? Does it brings us happiness and makes us feel better or does it makes us jealous because the other is better at it then ourselves? Can we even experience vicarious shame? Why do we want to be entertained? Is it our lack of imagination, creativity, or are we simply lazy or is it indolence? It also simply distract us and even forget about our day to day life for a little while. It can bring you new insights. I believe that we use some of the information given during the show and it has influence on further process of our life.

One thing is clear.. some of us are born entertainers and some of us simply don’t have a choice..
