This is really an engaging figural piece.

'Another side' of Ruela, eh?

That being said, in the context of the 'series' it ties in with: Dude! You have a wicked sense of humor! lol! ;-D

Mmmm. Interesting 'aesthetic'... Very tempting to use this as my desktop photo but I see past your physical attributes and respect you as a human being.

Oops. Hope my keyboard isn't damaged: I just drooled all over it (you sexy European Gigolo, you!).

Much.... er.... respect...

Oh, Mr Decker, he's not about humour; he's a tease!

Well, we all know that that's a load of bollocks.

(She slaps herself around the face whilst claiming that it didn't have any sexual impact)...

You and I both know that, while we're young and attractive, we can dismiss youth and beauty as being puerile and superficial. Once we've entered the saggy years we can acknowledge youth as tragically unaware of itself as being beautiful yet irrelevant in the face of our physical being as having lost something of the right shape... yet beautiful, young people are more of a draw-card that ever.

Sigh. I know that I'm still 'attractive' to even the young and have it confirmed on virtually a daily basis. I also know that nothing looks as it once did.

Let's have a beer and a little cry into it...

Ruela said...

thank you thank you ;))))

I'm "American" (by default) and stuck in the middle of Texas (fer Chrissake!), so it's funny, ya hear me? Funny! ;-p

Now, as for youth and all, the only six-pack I've got left is in the fridge. How 'bout a Newcastle? (and a left-over Xmas napkin...'sniff')

Sorry for taking over your comments with this slight tangent, but it seems your work has "touched a nerve" with the ... 'seasoned' contributors. ;-)

It's just my goodbye to Discharge 6

Leaving all behind...

Anonymous said...

Leave 'em guessin' and wantin' more...way to go!

Gives me an idea, if only I have the time... ;-)

Ruela said...

Please don't tell me!!!


Iryna Harpy said...

No, Ruela, don't thank me, THANK YOU!

In all seriousness, if it's your way of leaving Discharge 6 behind, I want some serious leaving Discharge 6 all BEHIND... You really are just a tease! ;)

Messy Decker, TEXAS!!! Now I'm feeling uncomfortable (read as being synonymous to terrified). Do Texans really wander around with double barrels down their pants? I've noticed that Jerry Hall seems to carry a tote bag instead of a delicate handbag. I have seen mags with pearl-handled 22's discreet and feminine enough to pop in your handbag for after 5, so I'm trying not to imagine what her sawn-off pearl-finish shotgun looks like.

Don't concern yourself with the six pack. I'm far more partial to a good slab nowadays (I don't know whether this translates into USA-ese). In fact, I'd rather a crate of Vodka (the cheaper and stronger, the better). It's called Spiritus in mah neck o' the woods... may be known as Rubbing Alcohol or Nail Polish Remover in yours.

As regards the festive napkins, I'm good with anything that can hold the snot. None of this bunny-soft tissue paper for me!

Yours respectfully and crudely,
The Old Harpy

anything unnecessary must be removed,

Is discharge Dada? No, it is not. Influenced by and with a similar attitude to, but not Dada..

Is discharge Fluxus? No, it is not. Influenced by and with a similar attitude to, but not Fluxus.

Is discharge art for intellectuals? No, discharge is for anyone and everyone who appreciates creativity in all its myriad forms. Be it static visual, audio or moving image; the written word or the deconstructed, non-linear form. The spoken word and noise.

All creativity is the springboard for discharge. It highjack’s a multitude of genres and disciplines and transposes them onto the internet. discharge is electronically transmitted art, be it via blog, myspace or whatever format possible, it can also be produced and seen in classic formats.

The discharge Chapbook. The discharge Building by Parts book. discharge has no rules. All contributors to discharge are responsible adults. discharge has no leaders although it has an elected body of rotating editors who oversee rather than dictate the flow of the group.

The aim of discharge is to profile creative people and to do away with the pretension of the art world. Everyday people creating art everyday to an exceptional quality.

Art by barrow boys and girls. discharge is international.
