Umbrella, Caio Fern, 2014, acrylic on canvas.


am i back to painting? uhh, i sincerely don’t know.

i only wanted to do a nice ornament for the new umbrella box i bought yesterday,
it is made of wood and will be by the side of the front door, so i thought it would be a nice touch to paint an ornament to hang on the wall right upon it,
so i will see the real umbrellas’ handles and see the painting upon it and my eyes are going to have an umbrellas’ feast … isn’t it wonderful ?
the ornament by the side with flowers i copied from a dirndl i saw lately.
why women don’t wear dirndls all the time?
as the Welter Konig i will make a law demanding every women to only wear this.


fighting till lose all excuses and reasons . ME FIRST !!!!! acrylic on canvas by Caio Fern 2011

first day and I spent 6 hours on that…. not happy I’ve worked on this piece for 4 days and maybe ( i said MAYBE ) it is done.
I know that the first and second version are easier to like , understand and digest. But I had to eat the logic and eliminate all smell of Idea from it. I can’t accept my working illustrating any idea or concept , i had to make it get more personal and less literary.
The harmony must to come from the form by itself…. and not by what it represents…. listen, i have nothing against illustration or conceptual art… but it is just not my thing.
For the ones that liked more the first version… I am sorry, I do appreciate people’s opinion and I like a lot to share, but I can’t live under it. ME FIRST !!!
