(ii) Thomas Cap de Ville PAGE OF PENTACLES
18 rue de l'Échiquier, 75010
Exhibition 28th January - 6th February 2017
And because I am happy and dance and sing,
They think they have done me no injury.
The Chimney Sweeper, William Blake 1795
INTELLECT We are like a pregnant woman in labour. We are inspired. We want to realize our fantasies in our own ways. We are possessed. The desire is true.
TRANSITION We turn our back on our problems. Metaphorical transition. We see a wall. We are able to go beyond it.
FEELINGS We fully embrace our own sincerity through self-expression. We have heart. We are ready to take risks. We find validation in ourselves.
CONQUEST / PURPOSE We want to create our own language. Weakness or strength, narcissism can elevate us if we choose. We know life is hard but we are able to face the emptiness and the fullness it holds. We are comfortable with our own femininity. We are ready to play.
NEW ERA Our position is clean. We are gamesters. Our guts are out on show. We don’t follow. Immediate pleasure without destruction. It is a new chapter.
Goswell Road publishes PAGE OF PENTACLES to coincide with the exhibition, a sixty-page book, featuring all of the drawings on show. PAGE OF PENTACLES is Thomas Cap de Ville’s first solo exhibition, and the accompanying publication is his first book.
