AUTOBIOGRAPHY (Gabríel Celaya)
"Don’t take the spoon in your left hand.
Don’t put your elbows on the table.
Fold your napkin.
This, to start with.
Take the square root of three thousand three hundred and thirteen.
Where is Tanganika? What year was Cervantes born in?
You’ll get a zero for behaviour if you talk to your classmate.
This, the next thing to do.
Do you think it’s right for an engineer to write poetry?
Culture is decoration and business is business.
If you continue with that girl we will close the door on you.
That, to be able to live.
Don’t be so crazy. Be polite. Do the right thing.
Don’t drink. Don’t smoke. Don’t cough. Don’t breath.
That’s right, don’t breath. Say no to all of the “no”s, and rest; Die”
This was my painting with acrylic. That small being came out which transmits a sensation of solitude, in a work which it finds strange.
This title is Italian written my way, and in honour of Francesco Ferlisi and his wife Michela. Two people who I think very highly of.
They were some of the first to see my painting and to encourage me to continue painting.
I shall always have the feeling of the time when Franchesco saw the painting for the first time and felt shiver. Until then only two people very close to me had seen my works, but to achieve that a great artist feels such an emotion while contemplating this painting was a real gift for me.
I invite you to visit my website and to enjoy my works where you will see their skill and the cleanness of my works. To me from transit a lot of balance.
