I will only say, to aid the better understanding of the canvases, that aayer red leaned, according to necessity, toward a blackish maroon on one side, toward a garish vermillion on the other; it gave in submissively, faithfully, with a love so great for the multitude of greens that surrounded it, that even its very shape took part in that perfect bipolarity.

But such was not the case for my old and dear friend, who had always looked at her, and who longed for her. Then the green of Lucretia, the beautiful Lucrecia, began to vacillate, to move away little by little, so little by so little that I scarcely seemed to hear very far away a peal of bells coming from the convent of Los Jeronimos.

He is thirty-one years old, given that he has painted for twenty-four years, and that he has painted since he was seven. Where do greens rise up simultaneously, twinkling as well, correspondingly changeful—since every shade of one demands the exact shade of the other—so that balance can be maintained? The frosted glass turns the green aquatic. That is what I do with my paintings here in my studio, my friends. In their simple enumeration I would fill ten volumes and then, if I wanted to enumerate the relation of every green enumeration with every other one, a hundred volumes would not be enough.


The viewers will leave with their pupils full of senselessness. For a long time I searched for the cause of my disquiet, but with no success. Not one word more! On the other hand, as things stand now, as they are today, life circulates in a great balanced complement and I, poor Ruben de Loa, in the image of the Creator himself, can bestow total life, one more point, one more conduit, let us say, for it to circulate happily through.

He smoked a pipe, as a painter should. Then I thought a change of subject would be wise.

Juan Emar – Wikipedia, la enciclopedia libre

Translation copyright by Megan McDowell. The bronze bells of Los Jeronimos tolled the noon hour. You juam say a small part; I, a large part. Greenish grey, grayish green, jungle or young eucalyptus, say it how you like, but it has an effect on you.

His jaguar features remained unchanged. A group of clouds comes and suddenly we have miles and miles of green, just like that, all at once.

Outside the studio, I said to my wife: I saw only some small, fleeting greens, fatuous fires that mischievously wander the streets of this city and all cities. Help WWB bring you the best new writing from around the world. But, I tell you, this is not what knowing is, you have not gotten inside your green. I will crush them, grind them up, tear their insides to pieces to extract and expel all the reds of their blood.

Then, among the rings of smoke, I began to examine my dear old friend. And yes, there were the invisible greens.

From “Ayer” – Words Without Borders

And we both emra pale. At times the red was jun and sinuous, coiled like a snake; at others, it was a blotch torn into pieces; others, a little point of spicy red pepper; others, beautiful branches of an advanced cancer; in sum—perfection, what the hell!


As a result, the reds that complement the greens, complement not only them but also your entire studio. My dear friend, until next time then, very soon. Very well, I or anyone elsethink of a jungle.

But, from the moment they exist, they can never stop existing, since if they stopped existing the sudden spark of a match would be enough for. Upon turning, I almost fell to my knees.

Finally I said in a low voice: You eamr forget that I am not a happy man. Makes viable the circulation of life through. While my wife and I were there contemplating the paintings, with our friend behind us, his hands lifted, a toucan belonging to an elderly neighbor lady let out its wild song. Is it possible to paint like this?

Anyone who knows the theories held by the painter regarding complements, will understand that every one of those reds was the exact, meticulously exact, exacerbatedly exact, complement of its group ajer greens.

Those of all the hours of the day and of the night; those of all the years of history. But let us keep within the limits we have set.

And saying this, he darted about into several corners of the room, and from under various pieces of furniture he took twelve paintings and lined them up along the foot of the wall opposite the window. Well, before such perfection, a question suddenly took hold of me. The greens of your canvases are greens of your studio, of your atmosphere, of this wide hole in which you live and work.
