chou chen [2007] oil on linen, 40 x 50 cm {SOLD}

"there they sit, the scented three... nameless consorts on day leave from the bedroom tedium of mild-mannered iniquity.
under the chinese lanterns in the arid jasmine haze, they compare pungent notes over fickle bowls of rice and luridly stained cups."*

*verse from "au restaurant chinois" by g.verster, 2004

[chou chen was perhaps the oldest chinese restaurant in paris, located across from the musée de cluny...sadly, it no longer exists; its location now usurped by another trendy café]
