I have always loved Madame Butterfly, this is a piece I started a mean while ago and this morning felt compelled to finish. Feeling more and more my art legs are returning. xxx
From Madame Butterfly:Song Liling: Under the robes, beneath everything, it was always me. Tell me you adore me.
Rene Gallimard: How could you, who understood me so well, make such a mistake? You’ve shown me your true self, and what I love was the lie, perfect lie, that’s been destroyed.
Song Liling: You never really loved me.
Rene Gallimard: I’m a man who loved a woman created by a man. Anything else simply falls short.
