today i:

  • wrote 2000 words on femme identity in an email to joy
  • opened and subsequently immediately closed my art history notes seven times
  • watched an hour-long lecture on a topic totally unrelated to any of my current classes
  • contemplated doing some christmas shopping; decided against it

guess it must be finals week

I can easily imagine Signac scoffing at Matisse’s timidity, his relative heliophobia, saying to the younger man: “Your desire draws you to the sun, as the left half of the picture and the slight disequilibrium it produces show-so why not leave the kimono in its proper place,
in an interior scene, and why not extol natural light, without resorting to these studio tricks? Why come to Saint-Tropez to paint this intimiste scene? I know the sun can’t be painted (as Delacroix said), but I have a method whose main goal is to transcribe its brilliance, a code that allows you not to copy it, since that’s impossible, but to generate it. You should try it. But you’ll have to give up this consistency of local tone you still rely on, and these veiled contrasts you have such a liking for.”
