The God of Small Things - NOWNESS
"Lucian Freud’s Holland Park studio is an otherworldly space normally barred to all but the notoriously reclusive painter’s select group of sitters. It was a coup when filmmaker Tim Meara was granted access to shoot what would become his short film, Small Gestures in Bare Rooms. Freud himself no longer uses this studio—approaching his tenth decade, he finds it increasingly difficult to get up the stairs—but the paint-soiled sanctum is a testimony to the countless hours the artist has spent re-working his canvases, wiping his brush after every stroke and endlessly refining his obsessive depictions of the human body. Tim Meara created the film over six months, interviewing members of Freud’s inner circle and re-staging moments from their stories as “silent portraits,” with a voiceover by the novelist Francis Wyndham. During filming the unthinkable happened—Freud agreed to appear on camera, prompted by the memory of the birds of prey he used to keep in his Delamere Terrace studio in the 40s. For half an hour, the painter allowed himself to be filmed walking along the canal in London’s Little Venice, a kestrel perched on his arm. The full version of Meara’s short—destined to be a feature in time for Freud’s 90th birthday—can be seen beginning March 10 at the Pompidou Center, as part of the museum’s Freud retrospective."

"I assure you that I do not paint the world in desolate colours for my own pleasure. After all, I cannot change my eyes. As for my lack of convictions, alas I’m only too full of convictions. I burn with suppressed anger and indignation. But my ideal of art demands that the artist shows none of this, and that he appears in his work no more than God in nature. The man is nothing; the work is everything."

["The man is nothing, the work is everything." comes from a letter from Flaubert to novelist George Sand.]

"I think that the greatest characteristic of genius is, above all, energy. Hence, what I detest most of all in the arts, what sets me on edge, is the ingenious, the clever. This is not at all the same as bad taste, which is a good quality gone wrong. In order to have what is called bad taste, you must have a sense for poetry; whereas cleverness, on the contrary, is incompatible with genuine poetry.”

[The above quote appears to come from The Journals of Grace Hartigan, 1951-1955: http://isola-di-rifiuti.blogspot.com/2011/08/reading-notes-journals-of-grace.html ]

"What seems to me the highest and most difficult achievement of Art is not to make us laugh or cry, nor to arouse our lust or rage, but to do what nature does — that is, to fill us with wonderment [to set us dreaming]. The most beautiful works have this quality. They are serene in aspect, incomprehensible [inscrutable]."

[Bracketed parts within are the differences between the translation Lucian Freud reads and another translation of a letter from Flaubert to Louise Colet: http://www.comesaunter.com/2011/02/gustave-flaubert-on-the-highest-achievement-of-art.html ]

David Adam: Could the answer to global warming be in architecture - to paint it white? | The Guardian
"It sounds simple, but the effect could be dramatic. Study after study has shown that buildings with white roofs stay cooler during the summer. The change reduces the way heat accumulates in built-up areas - known as the urban heat island effect - and allows people who live and work inside to switch off power-hungry air conditioning units.
