The Old Masters – re-interpreted 141

For those of us who lack absolutely everything to do with the venerable art of …well…Art, it behoves us to inveigle our way amongst the knowledgeable bods by means of a carefully constructed facade of confident opinion; and there’s no better place to practise your skill than here in the relative safety of the Institute.

Missing from this morning’s baroque ‘n roll-call, is this artist. Google also seems unwilling to throw up a name. A stout effort nonetheless, and one worthy of our malicious attention. Don’t hold back.

In the days before the…rubenesque… ballerinas were replaced by the more emaciated (and less visible) specimens, rehearsals were alive with bons mot and heavy punnage.

“Giselle-of-a heavy hey Rudolph”… “Too right Mikhail – mine weighs a ballet ton”… “Aah [gasp] Watch out for their grand jeté lads. I feel a Nutcracker coming on.”


About Freud Fission Chips

Despite the banality of the name, FFC has led an intensely varied life. Grateful for surviving almost three years as a 'troepie' (soldier for non-South African Readers) in the Angolan war, he determined to wring as much out of life as possible. Currently providing Business Analysis services, trading on the stock market and developing web pages to pay the bills, FFC also dabbles in wildlife, landscape and people photography, writing, and far too many interests for his own good. He has also travelled extensively in southern Africa (working on the sound theory that a moving target is more dificult to hit). These peregrinations also include over 1500kms on foot through some of the worlds most spectacular scenery. It hasn't all been plain sailing, beer and skittles, and endless beds of roses... Chief amongst the prerequisites for surviving Africa, with its mind-bending characteristics, is an appropriate sense of humour.... So, for now, he will be recounting the amusing among the annoying, the frustrating wrapped in the funny and extracting the mirth from the melancholy... Oh yes, there might be some alliteration too.
