Dear artist


I see your work right by my city hall. I'm supposed to stop and stare at your work "Little fisher girl". But you know what? that's no little girl. That's a breasty 19-year old with legs slightly apart. So tired of this. So tired of artists renderings of TENDER WOMANHOOD, often in the shape of busty teens with legs spread. Where are all the little approachable 19-year old fisher boys?

I'm no prude. I'm not saying remove it, cover her up. You're just not going to get an applause. AT ALL. My two daughters didn't even react, which is a testimonial to how many naked "girls" there are all over the place, at any given time.

  1. Själv tycker jag de anemiska ungdomarna som står i rondellen efter bron gränsar till ett nationalromantiskt tvivelaktigt formspråk. Måhända jag ger mig ut en natt och klär på dem. Glad Påsk också.

  3. Men det var väl för att han gillade det där androgyna, tror jag. Politiskt tveksam konstnär på många sätt men Millesgården är bra att ha nära till. Bäst gillar jag, förutom Medelhavsvingen, de förvildade murklockorna i trapporna.Är fint.
