The Thursday Morning Pleasing Image. No. 1. Tree


What does the tree represent? Is its place in the Christmas household a reflection of nature’s hold over man or man’s destruction of nature? Or does it represent something else entirely? Is it, in some way, a mirror held up to the difficulty of coming up with a new quiz once a week and my decision to probably just do a monthly quiz on the last Wednesday of the month or something like that? Is this image of the tree the artist asking himself, “but what are you going to do with all those collages you made now, you absolute spanker?” And is ‘artist’ stretching the point slightly? Maybe. And am I just going to post all the collages on a Thursday from now on because they bring me joy and there’s the off chance they might bring it to you too? You bet your sausage I am.
