An Actress painting
This painting is part of our two canvases dedicated to the harlequin monkeys. “An actor” and “An actress” are paintings that represent the idealistic dream of a chimpanzee to become a human.
There is no time to wait on evolution. It will be faster and easier with a disguise. You put on the mask of a person and oh! A miracle!
You are already a human.
And not an ordinary person, but a woman. A woman! And you experience a brief, explosive, and stressful moment, which you do not even want to hear about ever again.
A brief moment imprinted forever in your subconscious. One that makes you wake up in the middle of the night, curled up in an embryonic position and drenched in a cold sweat. A moment you desperately wish you left behind.
Not even there—it would be way too close, even if you locked it with the most powerful spell in the steel coffin of oblivion on a distant continent on another planet.
Better to wait for evolution to take its course and do the dirty work. Being a monkey is not that bad after all. What do you need to be a woman for?! That’s the Actress painting for.
