When breaking glass roofs pay attention to your choices of footwear - bump incl. in the price
This painting was originally something else. In 2004 it was trying to be an abstract companion to The Expecting Woman with The Kiss to Gustav Klimt, but failed miserably. The Woman went South-West, and Gustav to Helsinki. So now it had a light green background with big pink lipstick spots all over. Four years went by until something started to happen : it was to be a rude statement in a solo exhibition in an art museum, where at the same time was a huge show about Fashion Photography. There it went, with stretchers' lines showing and a little bent. And came back after a month. They said it could have stayed for another month but too late. I already had taken it down with all the rest. I was not going to put it all back. In the guest book someone indignant wrote : " Is this supposed to be art ? " I chose to suppose he referred to those Fashion Photos. The painting has been so much kicked around from one place to another, but there it still is, with a cute bump and everything. It has balls.
