Cy Twombly

Recently, Cy Twombly has been occupying a lot of head space in twosee... His aesthetic perfectly describes the way we feel going into SS08.

After looking at his Wikipedia entry, we were delighted to see he still inspired people to forget themselves...

"...On July 19, 2007, police arrested artist Rindy sam after she kissed one panel of Twombly's tryptich Phaedrus. The Panel was an all white canvas, and was smudged by Sam's red lipstick. She is to be tried in a court in Avignon in October for 'Voluntary degradation of a work of art'. Sam defended her gesture to the court: 

"[trans.]...All I did was a kiss. It's a gesture of love, when I kissed, I wasn't thinking, I thought that the artist would've understood... This gesture was an artistic act provoked by the power of Art."

Let's just say that as we approach the new season, the store will be undergoing a serious transformation. The interior will be inspired in part by the beauty of Cy Twombly's paintings.

Let's hope that we don't fall foul through our own unrequitted love though. It seems that Rindy was made to pay for her 'Act of love', as the defence claimed:

"...Agnes Tricoire, lawyer for the plaintiffs, said the kiss was "as aggressive as a punch," causing damage that was just as hard to restore.

"I do not share the same vision of love. For me love requires the consent of both sides,""

She was ordered to pay 1500 euros on November 16th, as well as a symbolic one euro to the artist himself for damages...
