THE RED COUCH AND THE VISITOR - THIRD Painting from the serial: In the Artist Studio - 2017
The Artist Studio belong to our contemporary classical mythology. This painting is the third in a serial with the theme from the artist studio. It belongs together with 'The Red Chair in the Artist Studio' and 'The Cat in the Artist Studio', all homage to the paint dots and blotches on a studio floor.
The chair or especially the couch was essential in an artist studio. Here one could lay down and relax, but more important to sit or lay down and look at the painting one at any time are working on. For most, one work more looking at a painting, than actually painting on it.
Secondly, one gets investors and 'normal' people who just love art, visiting the studio. What's better then than sitting on a paint-stained couch? Parties are also an essential part of many artists studios, with or without some good wine ...
Still, the most important part of a couch is looking at the painting you work on. I remember one time a close friend coming to the studio with her five-year-old daughter. The daughter was rather silent for a long time, and then she said: 'I believed you painted here in the studio, but all you do is just looking and looking'. A correct observation of the work in an artist studio.
