Part of the same series, this painting takes the viewer to Helene Cixous’s words: “I would like to write a painter. I would like to write like a painting. What is a painter, after all but a birdcatcher of instants?”. The painting is about how history is naturalised and how nature is mythologised through a series of narratives to oneself and to one’s community: an attempt to pictorialise history as is felt.
