René Magritte
René Magritte
(1898 – 1967)


๏ เรอเน่ มากริตต์ (René Magritte)

René François Ghislain Magritte หรือเป็นที่รู้จักกันในชื่อ เรอเน่ มากริตต์ (René Magritte) (21 พฤศจิกายน ค.ศ. 1898 – 15 สิงหาคม ค.ศ. 1967) ศิลปินชาวเบลเยียม

“My painting is visible images which conceal nothing; they evoke mystery and, indeed, when one sees one of my pictures, one asks oneself this simple question, `What does that mean?’. It does not mean anything, because mystery means nothing either, it is unknowable.”


CAT62 René Magritte มีผลงานที่น่าประทับใจมากมาย เช่น…

  1. ภาพ The Son of Man หรือ Le fils de l’homme ในปี ค.ศ. 1964 … 😀

    The Son of Man

    “Everything we see hides another thing, we always want to see what is hidden by what we see, but it is impossible. Humans hide their secrets too well…”

    ดูภาพนี้แล้วนึกถึงภาพยนตร์เรื่อง The Thomas Crown Affair (ในปี ค.ศ. 1999 นำแสดงโดย Pierce Brosnan กับ Rene Russo) รวมถึงเพลง The Windmills of Your Mind ด้วย… 🙂

๏ Lyrics for: The Windmills Of Your Mind

Round, like a circle in a spiral,
Like a wheel within a wheel
Never ending or beginning
On an ever spinning reel
Like a snowball down a mountain
Or a carnival balloon
Like a carousel that's turning,
Running rings around the moon
Like a clock whose hands are sweeping
Past the minutes of its face
And the world is like an apple
Whirling silently in space
Like the circles that you find
In the windmills of your mind.

Like a tunnel that you follow
To a tunnel of its own
Down a hollow to a cavern
Where the sun has never shone
Like a door that keeps revolving
In a half-forgotten dream
Or the ripples from a pebble
Someone tosses in a stream
Like a clock whose hands are sweeping
Past the minutes of its face
And the world is like an apple
Whirling silently in space
Like the circles that you find
In the windmills of your mind.

Keys that jingle in your pocket,
Words that jangle in your head
Why did summer go so quickly?
Was it something that you said?
Lovers walk along the shore
And leave their footprints in the sand
Is the sound of distant drumming
Just the fingers of your hand?
Pictures hanging in a hallway
And the fragment of a song
Half-remembered names and faces,
But to whom do they belong?
When you knew that it was over,
You were suddenly aware
That the autumn leaves were turning
To the colour of her hair

A circle in a spiral,
A wheel within a wheel
Never ending or beginning
On an ever spinning reel
As the images unwind,
Like the circles that you find
In the windmills of your mind
