It was a hate painting just like f**king is sometimes a hate f**k.
The canvas was still in its plastic casing, patiently waiting for its turn in the cardboard box it arrived in together with other 10 white canvases. I pulled it out of the box and started ripping the plastic apart just like you would rip somebody’s clothes off. With rage, passion and only one possible outcome. When I finally managed to strip it naked I emptied on the floor the whole of my bucket of paint tubes and I looked for the ones I already had in mind, on my retina, beyond the palpable universe. I was feverishly looking for the colors I felt from the first second, the very first sound. I’ve seen them from the start: flashes of magenta, violet vibrations and blue short circuits. I threw my cup of water directly on the canvas and started to pile the colors directly on top of it, then I started to furiously use my brush. I felt the music entering my body directly opposite the heart, through my back, exactly where somebody would stab a knife. Then it goes up to the center of sight, it creates very many precise but parallel images and then it travels through the arm directly onto the canvas. I worked fast, very fast, much faster than my eyes and hands could handle until at some point I just ran out of breath. That’s how I knew I had to stop. I knew the painting was ready. The air lasts long enough for the painting to be done. Then it’s no longer necessary.
