I am officially fed up blogging about Friday treats. They just are so repetitive, they ended up boring me. So anyway, tonight I went to this art exhibition of Fabian Perez, where the artist was. Lovely paintings, as expected, but it was so darn crowded. I saw the artist, but did not speak to him. I didn't want to look like a groupie. I didn't buy a painting either (surprise). It lasted an hour, but it made me discover something: I don't like art crowds. Being there reminded me of a quote from The Picture of Dorian Gray:
"You must certainly send it next year to the Grosvenor. The Academy is
too large and too vulgar. Whenever I have gone there, there have been
either so many people that I have not been able to see the pictures,
which was dreadful, or so many pictures that I have not been able to see
the people, which was worse."
I guess there were plenty of people to see, but in the end they remained invisible, hidden by the crowd they were a part of. The paintings looked more alive.
