The progressive escape of reality towards delusion is expressed in the pictures above. They were painted by Louis Wain, a European artist in the beginning of this century. Since Wain was young, he used to draw and paint cats for calendars, albums, postcards, etc. When he became 57 years old, he  was affected by an unknow mental disorder , which overtook his life as well his art. The last 15 years of his life were spent in psychiatric institutions. His cat’s paintings started to change and to show startling images. Quite revealing of his psychotic condition were the cat’s eyes. See how they become fixed with hostility, even in the earliest paintings, because the psychotic probably tends to think that the world is looking upon him in a menacing way. Another sign is the fragmentation of the cat’s body. They become altered in a strange way under the psychotic’s gaze, and almost always are represented as distorted and phantastic shapes

Over 2,500 feathers were used to make the beautiful one piece tutu. It was assembled by Lemarie Atelier. Made of ostrich plumes, turkey, hen, and cock feathers layered over a tulle and silk net. Karl Lagerfeld designed it for Elena Glurdjidze’s performance in the “The Dying Swan” as part of the National English Ballet’s season of Ballets Russes.

He kissed her.

A kiss about apple pie à la mode with the vanilla creaminess melting in the pie heat. A kiss about chocolate, when you haven’t eaten chocolate in a year. A kiss about palm trees speeding by, trailing pink clouds when you drive down the Strip sizzling with champagne. A kiss about spotlights fanning the sky and swollen sea spilling like tears all over your legs.

And there were a lot more of those kisses after that.
