Artist's Description

messing around with ink in water, makes such a beautiful mess of delicate swirls that seem like they could swallow anything, like a spiders web, a web of engulfing lies and deceit… the most appropriate songs came out of it too…

SoundgardenBlack Hole Sun
In my eyes, Indisposed, In disguise
As no one knows, Hides the face
Lies the snake, The sun In my disgrace,
Boiling heat, Summer stench beneath the black,
The sky looks dead, Call my name, Through the cream
And Ill hear you, Scream again
Black hole sun,Wont you come and wash away the rain
Black hole sun, Wont you come, Wont you come

MuseSupermassive Black Hole
I thought I was a fool for no one
But ooh, baby I’m a fool for you
You’re the queen of the superficial
And how long before you tell the truth?

and then my poem… Fluttering Folly
the truth, floats, down
flutters, falls, on my eyes
I see the real you, past your lies…

I see your inside, the dark , black of it
its beautifully broken, a mess of hurt
a tangle, of lies, a facade, so fake…

beautifully black, can be hideously nice
especially, when you get away., once, twice, thrice
but it will soon begin, the infest…

your heart is on the line
but i, want to make you fine
for i want to colour your world, like, you, mine…

i will open your curtains, bring in, the sun
it will burn bright, white
bringing in, truth, the light…

you need a patch, a stitch, some thread
you need, grace, love, a heart, a head
think, before, your truth is dead…

clean up your eyes, il clean mine too
refresh your soul, become new
shed the fear, tell the truth…

sweep you corners, take out the trash
retrack, retrace, the collision, your life crash
it will be gone, in a flash…

for the truth, it will, set you, free
your eyes will opened, you will see
that life is better with honesty….

Title is a song by Frou Frou
