The Invisible Exhibition

Since Thursday there has been a little show of my paintings up in the entrance hall. So far, not only has no one commented on them, but I don’t believe that anyone has even noticed them. I do believe that I’ve discovered the formula for producing an invisible painting. What you do is the following: first you contrive your life in such a way as to end up in an Old People’s Home full of nice, but culturally innocent, inmates. Then you take your brush in your right hand and apply various coloured tinctures on a prepared surface (usually paper) to form a design – a series of lines, shades and shapes, which might result in a «painting». Repeat this periodically over several months and then, and this is the tricky part, get someone to group them together and display them on a large stand in the entrance hall. And there you have it – invisible paintings (painted by an invisible man).
