Kenton Nelson Saving Grace

"The objects I chose were designed to hold something, but I didn’t fill them up. They remained empty. They were little symbolic shrines to thirst."

Karim’s paintings distort our idea of idealised female form, a response to what he calls the “unconvincing onslaught of media superficiality”.
Have a look… 


When people treat you like they don’t care, believe them.

"Bodies have their own light which they consume to live: they burn, they are not lit from the outside."

"Summer for prose and lemons, for nakedness and languor,
for the eternal idleness of the imagined return…"

- Derek Walcott, from "Bleecker Street, Summer" (via weissewiese)

"Someone can be madly in love with you and still not be ready. They can love you in a way you have never been loved and still not join you on the bridge. And whatever their reasons you must leave. Because you never ever have to inspire anyone to meet you on the bridge. You never ever have to convince someone to do the work to be ready. There is more extraordinary love, more love that you have never seen, out here in this wide and wild universe. And there is the love that will be ready."
