existencialist art

Louis Bourgeois.

“A lot of people are obsessed by the past. […] For certain people the past had such a hold and such a beauty […] You cannot arrest the present. You just have to abandon every day your past. And accept it. And if you can’t accept it, then you have to recreate it. Which is exactly what I have been doing. I am not a surrealist; I’m an existentialist.” Louis Bourgeois, 1997

Preview of Walt Whitman | 40x50cm | Graphite on Paper

I exist as I am—that is enough;

If no other in the world be aware, I sit content;

And if each and all be aware, I sit content.

One world is aware, and by far the largest to me, and that is myself;

And whether I come to my own to-day, or in ten thousand or ten million years,

I can cheerfully take it now, or with equal cheerfulness I can wait.

Walt Whitman
