Meet Rudi, 42, the romantic high priest of digital collage!

NO TALKING SHOP, NO DAILY GRIND. Paris, 42 rue de l’Yvette. Thursday 15 May 2014, forty minutes past two. I have a feeling there’s still a few hours needed to finish organizing my drawers and I’ll be back in the studio free from all my digital fever. Which will allow me to enjoy other delicious moments. For example making some beautiful still lifes with my Rollei SL66. Or exploring the dunes in Ostend. Hunting for driftwood on the North Sea beaches. Listening to Toru Takemitsu and Robert Ashley. Will I be continuing with New Still Lifes for much longer? Certainly until 30 June. But after that? I think it would take a torrent of encouraging hits on my website. With that hope… happy holidays! Buddha bless you!

 

Here I Am, Bewitched by Emile Verhaeren’s Poetry, Dreaming as Ever…

Emile et  James (Ensor) à la BNF de Paris.

Paris, 2 Rue Vivienne, Institut National d’Histoire de l’Art. Ovale Room, seat 82. Tuesday February  4 , 2014, 2:12 PM.  In short , a surprising morning, hard to narrate. At first, things looked simple. I was concerned about New Still Lifes.com’s rank ( N° 1,679,771 in the world according to Alexa.com ) so I set off to the  Bibliothèque Nationale in  order to write an article that would surely draw hords of internet visitors. On site, to sharpen my wits, I open the collection of poems by Émile Verhaeren with which I kill time while going across town. Lo and behold, the reading of poem XVIII from « Heures du Soir » (the little yellow book on the right of the photo)  shatters my convictions.  » Minute facts, the thousand nothings in life » confides the poet to his sweetheart ( and myself as a reader) « A letter, a date, a humble anniversary,/ a word uttered as in the days of yore / Exites your heart and mine in those long evenings ».  Bewitched by Emile Verhaeren’s poetry, I begin daydreaming between the lofty walls of my dear Ovale Room. Minutes go by, and in the end I am lazily happy to watch them fly off. Far, far from Alexa.com… May Buddah bless you.
