Rui Vasquez - Artwork ( + Trio: Sharrock / Puschard / Godard )

Decades ago I had the pleasure of becoming a fan of his work, a sentiment that remains to this day.

Rui Vasquez

Obra de: Rui Miguel Pinto Vasquez:
Titulo: Sem titulo, Tamanho: 65cm,
Técnica: Terra-cota engobada

I also leave you with other images of some of his work in addition to three musical video clips I enjoy.

On an entirely different note, and having absolutely nothing to do with the artist or musicians at hand I leave a quote that has been on my mind since the "official busting of the proverbial Bubble" in 2008, and relative to that which has in my opinion come to be from the 1980s on....
- I leave said quote because the foundations of that which so many had fought & died for is laid waste in my opinion.

"We shall defend our island, whatever the cost may be, we shall fight on the beaches, we shall fight on the landing grounds, we shall fight in the fields and in the streets, we shall fight in the hills; we shall never surrender." - Churchill

Contrary to the work above (music & art) the present is not a pretty picture at all in Europe and one must not forget one's past, lest their be the cruel repetition of unholy deeds.
Recent law and action in this continent unfortunately proves what I say.

News in Portuguese from December 1 - Hungria passa lei que pune os Sem-Abrigo - LINK

- In English - Hungary bans the Homeless - LINK (BBC)

I also saw a bulletin from the above artist's wife's FB wall and leave you with it
(in Portuguese - 11 mitos sobre a FOME - LINK
- in English - UNESCO - on Hunger - LINK - regarding the subject of world hunger. One should bear and in mind that 1 in every 7 humans is starving and that the famished are spread across the globe. In the USA alone there is an estimated 50 million.. )

Many are the manoeuvres in today's world that not only ruin economies they cast intolerable suffering upon others, upon fellow Men.. This must be stopped.

In keeping with the month at hand - I also leave continued blessings and wish all a safe December.

Desta vez, como escolha musical deixo algo que me parece ligar bem com os trabalhos deste escultor, algo que me foi enviado como presente por uma pessoa amiga, que sabe que gosto bastante, entre outras musicas e linguagens, deste tipo de coisa.
