The show as you talk about it reminds me of the story of a picture but you don’t answer the phone to hear it. Instead I take from the wall Henri Rousseau’s “The Merry Jester” which I am thinking of sending to you because it is JUDO. Soon you will notice how thumbs disappear in the sickening depths of its holographic greenery. What a flower arranged landscape. No anatomy or scale; the result of Rousseau often painting from the zoo gift shop.
Beginning with a postcard, the painting is a middle ending in a postcard. This with four distinct planes of flora, some along with fauna, any of whom could be the Jester or the jest fulfilled just now that the story of painting is a hologram. I will refer back to your JUDO about jokes and their makers. But refer forward to my JUDO about jokers. Since this postcard is a new work of art, anticipate it. As you said, the energy of the object redirected.
I’ll see you the tenth,
