Courtyard, Trindade; kitsch


Courtyard, Trindade, oil on card, 14 x 17 cm

A picture in a "Japanese" vernacular, via French Intimism. 

The courtyards visible from my flat have enormous potential as subjects: art as the revealing of secrets, the hidden made known. Art of this sort is the opposite of propaganda and kitsch, which deals in falsehoods. 

  Next time I will try to capture the lady responsible for the washing, though she only ever appears fleetingly to hang or remove her laundry.
