Real art has the capacity to make us nervous. Susan Sontag


I thought of this quote the other day in context with this image I made. I have in fact no knowledge of weather it is art or not, that is for others to say, but it manages to make me nervous as it does to others that have seen it. Why? I do not know still I made it my self.  It was one of these day where we had been walking around in Guadalajara in Mexico being tourist. It was an ordinary day in most all aspect except for the fact that I was taking all kinds of strange images that I felt compelled to take. At that moment I did not know why nor had I any thing in my mind that I particularly thought of. When in San Miguel de Allende I added some more of strange images and thought nothing of it. I do this from time to time, knowing that one day I will use them in some form, but this time things felt different. Then it started raining and I sat by the computer with nothing special in mind. At that moment this image came to me and I started working. For couple of ours I worked on this image in Photoshop and it was like it already had formed in my mind. I knew exactly what I was after and what I wanted. Still the outcome was to my surprise. I did not take it I made it. I love it when that happens
