Title

Kandyskin VI (Envy)

Description

VI. ENVY
Every- avant-garde movement paints a mustache on the one that came before. Duchamp had bearded Mona Lisa; Leonardo returns the favor on Picasso's Les Demoiselles d'Avignon. The veiled, siren allure of the brides takes flight, dancing, at the bachelors' attempts at revelation.

Not to be outdone,
invideos envydiduals
unwill even her wariest veil.
Unvarying ever their siren wail,
unfailingly unavailing,
the brides tripped barely [the bride stripped barely] by their bachelors, even!
(transcription of the text in the painting)
