Painting with Body Parts #41: Cherry-Coloured Funk Edition

painting with body parts, Uncategorized

I was listening to a song by The Cocteau Twins.

They’re an interesting duo,

With ethereal voices and transporting verses.

A song I hadn’t heard before was randomly selected for me as I was listening to some 80s/early 90s tunage a couple of weeks ago.

The lyrics intrigued me…

Because they made so little sense on a logical level;

Somehow I felt them,

And understood them on a deeper, ineffable level.

But the title just said it all —

It had managed to sum up my entire mood as of late.

I knew at the very moment I read the title and started listening that I had to make a painting that felt just like that title.

To me at least.

This is “Cherry-Coloured Funk”… inspired by the song of the same name by the Cocteau Twins from the album “Heaven or Las Vegas”.

I tried something different this time.

I have always enjoyed collage, since I was 13.

I was hit with a bolt of inspiration, and it appears that I am moving in a new direction where my art is concerned.

I am just going with it.

But I still love pouring paint all over my body, and feeling it slide over and around my wavey curves.

It makes me feel like my body is very much a part of my art.

That makes me so happy.

So I guess I am pulling myself out of my own cherry-coloured funk.

Beetles and eggs and blues and pour a little everything else
You steam a lens stable eyes and glass
Not get pissed off through my bird lips as good news
Still being cried and laughed at from behind
Down far behind this fabulous, my turn rules
Beetles and eggs and blues and bells and eggs and blues
Beetles and eggs and blues and pour a little everything else
You steam a lens stable eyes and glass
Not get pissed off through my bird lips as good news
You’ll hang the hearts black and dull as the night
We hanged your pass and start being as you in ecstasy
(Still being cried and laughed at before)
Should I be sewn in, hugged, I can by not saying
(Still being cried and laughed at from light to blue)
And should I be hugged and tugged down through this tiger’s masque
And should I be sung and unbroken by not saying
You mind not saying
He’ll hang that heart’s black and dull as the night
(Still being cried and laughed at from behind me)
We hanged your pass and star being as you in ecstasy
(Still being cried and laughed at from behind me)
Should I be sung and unbroken by not saying
(Still being cried and laughed at from behind me)
Hugged and tugged down through this tiger’s masque for key

(Lyrics by The Cocteau Twins)
