An Actor painting
This painting is part of our two canvases dedicated to harlequin monkeys. The main character is a chimpanzee who has worked hard to become an actor.
He has found the best tailors to sew his costume of a clown. The most skilled sculptors have sculpted the mask he will put on. The moment for his first performance has come. The spotlight is on him and there is no turning back. The stage is his. The moment of truth has arrived.
The chimpanzee puts on his mask and becomes human.
But our chimpanzee is not an ordinary monkey,
but a particularly resourceful and cunning individual. He handles himself deftly in any situation. He doesn’t need much time to understand that he was probably better off as a monkey.
This job of being human is more complicated – it’s not for everyone. Better to remain an authentic monkey than a mediocre human. He should be recognized for having a sense of things, don’t you think…
