Because I am not living I cannot teach anybody anything.

Why should a painting reveal itself through words?A painting should talk to the world through sketches, strokes and colours.Why should it carve words?May be, Man In Painting is an exception.He might have got this unique gift of expressing his feelings through words rather than through colours.A painting is trapped inside the two dimensions of space.May be we can add one more dimension and call it a three dimensional picture.But for the painting both are the same.The main concern of a painting is time, rather than space . Each day Man In Painting sees hundreds of people , trapped either in space or time.All of them are, in one or other way, Men/Women In Paintings.One day they might also realise the paintings in which they all are living .Man In Painting have almost forgotten about the painting in which he is living.Is it so important?Or is the moving world out side more important?Each day is a 24 hour movie.60 moving frames in a minute.Have you ever thought that all the paintings watch this world as non-stop entertaining movies ?That is the truth.All the meditating trees around you,painted to the lower end of the vast blue sky is watching this moving world silently.They are having more fun than the moving world who had to stop and watch things.Man In Painting want to tell the whole world about what he see in this world without labels and divisions.Often people come in front of me , watch closely and comment according to their education.So each day, i study something about me from them.And that is a very good thing to learn.Because i am not living, i cannot teach anybody anything.That is the greatest virtue every painting has got.Being a non teacher is important.Man In Painting quickly realises this and remains silent.That is why all his talks ends suddenly without conclusions.He understands that his duty is to watch,watch and watch till the painting fades and cannot be seen anymore.

@mano
true.It is always a question of power...we are all in the habit of excercising it, in all the spheres of life ...we ourselves should find our own ways of deconstruction....Perception,judgement,prjection everything belongs to those who have power.
only the "dead"(living dead and the non living dead-both) have no power...

Right, it is so hard to be just an observer. We tend to be didactic so easily without realizing what we are and whether we need to be what we tend to become unwittingly.
