` Fuck me, Know me, Love me!!
"Hay gente en ocasiones que deseas que fuera un libro, para así poder cerrarla con un sonoro y seco golpe de la mano, sin marcar la página, y devolverla luego para siempre al lugar en que por derecho corresponde: los mustios anaqueles de una rancia biblioteca."
— Roger Wolfe  (via hachedesilencio)


In 1940, knowing that France was falling into the hands of the Germans, the workers of the Louvre took action. All 400,000 works were evacuated and sent to the south of France. In secret they transported the priceless paintings and statues, and held by wealthy families in Vichy,where they would remain for five years, only returning at the end of the war.The quick action of the workers without a doubt saved the masterpieces from becoming part of the over 5 million works that were looted by the Nazis during the war.

"Maybe it’s not in the perfection of life that things make sense, but in the chaos."

Café Kiss, by Ron Hicks


London based artist - Emma McNally took her degree in English and Philosophy and as an artist is self-taught, developing a subtle drawing style which fuels the complex mark-making of her large works in graphite on paper. She also works on a small scale, layering tissue paper and pouncing holes in the surface.

‘I like graphite’s materiality: its mess and dirt as well as its capacity to leave the cleanest, sharpest percussive marks and lines. I feel like I’m forging land formations when I use it, or scattering particles, or spiralling vortices of smoke and water,’ she writes. 


"The flower bloomed and faded. The sun rose and sank. The lover loved and went."

"A nuestra edad sabemos que nada es para siempre. Nos enamoramos pero sabemos que no será pasa siempre. Por eso nos arriesgamos, por eso nos entregamos hasta quedarnos vacíos."

"No importa si cuando llama el amor
yo estoy muerta.
Siempre vendré
si alguna vez
llama el amor."
