mona lisa

"...since art is a vehicle for the transmission of ideas through form, the reproduction of the form only reinforces the concept. It is the idea that is being reproduced. Anyone who understands the work of art owns it. We all own the Mona Lisa."

"in the dutch mountains

I was born in the valley of bricks

where the river runs high above the rooftops

I was waiting for the cars coming home late at night

from the Dutch mountains

I was standing in the valley of rock

up to my belly in an early fog

I was looking for the road to a green painted house
in the Dutch mountains

in the Dutch mountains


I met a woman in the valley of stone

she was painting roses on the walls of her home

and the moon is a coin with the head of the queen

of the Dutch mountains


I lost a button of my shirt today

it fell on the ground

and it was rolling away

like a trail leading me back

to the Dutch mountains


to the Dutch mountains

I met a miller on the back of a cow

he was looking for the wind

but he didn't know how

I said

follow the cloud that looks like a sheep

in the Dutch mountains

in the Dutch mountains

in the Dutch mountains

mountains mountains


~ Henk Hofstede - Rob Kloet - Robert Jan Stips

"Het zorgeloze kunstenaarsvolkje

Ik had met Frans weer oeverloos gedronken,
En toen getwist. Een fles kwam op mijn kop.
Maar het revolverschot in korenveld bleef uit,
En ook mijn oor zit er nog onversneden aan."

~ Gerard Reve

"At some point we’ve got to stop asking ourselves what is the meaning of everything, maybe it’s not so very important what it means. It’s probably more important what the sense of it is.. they are two very basic and different things."
