My Inspiration for February III

29 Feb

Words for February: Marc Chagall, Russia, and blue: piercing Kees van Dongen blue, spiritual Rothko’s blue, Chagall’s soulful and dreamy blue, hints of night blue on paintings of Georges Rouault… blue… I’ve been inspired by Manic Street Preachers, two very good books; Fathers and Sons by Turgenev, and The Return of Philip Latinowicz by Miroslav Krleza. Two brilliant films as well: Good Bye, Lenin (2003), and Sonnenallee (1999); the latter is story of teenagers crazy for rock music and girls, on the East side of Berlin in the 1970s. The clothes, the music, superb!
