Niki de Saint Phalle

Sortie de l'ecole / School's out! Original color lithograph, 1995.

Niki de Saint Phalle, a French-American, was born in 1930. Her rebelliousness often created friction with others that led her to a nervous breakdown at 23. Painting offered her an effective therapy and a way for an artist. In the 1960s, she shocked people by her performance of shooting paint-buried-reliefs with a gun. Since then she has produced works centering women as their theme. Her "Nana" series gained universal acclaim. Organic form and vivid colors of her works provided a new approach to sculpture, and Niki has also worked on monumental architecture, theater, and filmmaking. Her sculptural garden, "The Tarot Garden" inspired by the Tarots, was completed in 1998 after 20 years from its inception. Niki keeps on challenging new materials, while pursuing the life-long theme of self-reflection and wish for freedom.In October 1998, Niki paid a long-awaited visit to Japan. Niki passed away on May 21, 2002, in San Diego, California in the US at the age of 71. The world mourned the death of a wonderful woman with courage and conviction.

Snowy night in South Korea. December 17th. 2006.

아직 끝나지 않은 12월엔 별로 많은 일이 일어나지 않은것 같지만, 정말 많은 일이 있었다.
눈처럼 하얀 세상속에서 살고 싶다.

Is that alright

9crimes.jpg

Leave me out with the waste
This is not what I do
It's the wrong kind of place
To be thinking of you
It's the wrong time
For somebody new
It's a small crime
And I've got no excuse
and Is that alright

Give my gun away
when it's loaded Is that alright
If you don't shoot it
how am I supposed to hold it
Is that alright
Give my gun away
when it's loaded Is that alright
with you
Leave me out with the waste
This is not what I do
It's the wrong kind of place
To be cheating on you
It's the wrong time
She's pulling me through
It's a small crime
And I've got no excuse
and Is that alright

I give my gun away
when it's loaded Is that alright
If you don't shoot it
how am I supposed to hold it
Is that alright
I give my gun away
when it's loaded is that alright
Is that alright with you
Is that alright

I give my gun away
when it's loaded
Is that alright
If you don't shoot it
how am I supposed to hold it
Is that alright
If I give my gun away
when it's loaded
Is that alright
Is that alright with you
Is that alright

I give my gun away
when it's loaded

If you don't shoot it
how am I supposed to hold it
I give my gun away
when it's loaded
Is that alright with you no
