I could stare at this picture for hours as a kid as my father had (and still have) the poster framed on the wall. Through the years I’ve been scared, intrigued and fascinated by this very painting. I guess one of the reasons is beacuse when looking at it you keep playing possible scenarios over and over in your head thinking about the story, the before and after this particular scene. I doesn’t matter how many times you’ve seen it, it really doesn’t.
Now, I know we’re a little of topic here but since I’ve been thinking a bit about defining moments I wanted to share something outside of fashion that have had an affect on my own visual expression. From the 29th of May The Modern Museum in Stockholm will hold an exhibition with his paintings and I’m hoping to see my favourite one! I’m taking dad to see it too.

Yes yes yes! I can see Columbine written all over it! Somehow it does represent your taste in a way, I can see it. And as much as this isn't what I'd normally describe as "my taste" I really love it too! So lovely you're taking you dad to the exhibition! :)
