Would you play with me?

if i were water, if i were fire
if i were the sun in the skies
if i wouldn’t talk, if i were a stone
would you still play with me?

if i were silent, if i were a fault
if i were a swearword in mouth
if i were a slave since my birth
would you still play with me?

if i were out of the game, if my scores were unknown
if i were the power in the ground
if i were a crime like stupid
would you still play with me?

would you still play with me?



pencil, charcoal, kid, child worker

The rocks inspired my paintings, but I didn’t want to paint only what was there. These rocks came alive in my mind; they had personalities. And so I drew them not as the weathered formations that exist, but as living organisms that twist and merge, that form into impossible shapes. This to me is the spirit of the region, an area that is rich in both natural and cultural beauty.
