Where are you now, Cy Twombly?
(from series, ‘i have gone’)
Cy Twombly’s work often referenced the burdens of history and the Ancient and yet, is astonishingly alive and spontaneous, vital. His paintings put me in a place that is timeless and perpetually true – they are not, as so many people seem to think, even remotely childlike in their intention and coherence. Rest in peace and thanks, Mr Twombly!
