So Keanu is scheduled to appear at Foundation Beyeler in Switzerland and speak about Gauguin since there's a new exhibit there. Apparently this is bogus and heinous to "The Observer" - dig the groovy headline. An actor, speaking about art, what the hell? How dare he climb out of his box?

It sounds absolutely fascinating. I so wish I could go!

Thank you for posting MmeRenard I like it when his voice is trembling in some parts of the reading, as if he feels the characters emotion ... and also the sudden and mysterious sadness when he lowered his voice.

You're very welcome, Misty! I love it, too. We're having a pretty brutal winter here, and it was like being transported to Tahiti for an hour! I've seen quite a few of Gauguin's paintings, and have loved them since I was a wee child.

Yeah, with banana leaves, golden flowers and the like by the way my father was a painter ... but to be honest I am not really knowledgeable in art movements

A small 'reality show' in Beyeler Foundation, Keanu Reeves relates himself (and most people) to some of Paul Gauguin's aspirations

PS: I reposted this from another thread which I cannot delete

I am sorry I forgot there is already a topic about Gauguin here.

Oh so, I forgot to tell this story. It is a quick one, but it starts with Keanu Reeves. I came across Keanu Reeves speaking about and reading from Gauguin's book,(thanks to this site of course).
I love art, and Gauguin's work with color and native scenes was something I got into.
Later on there was a contest for a book cover. They requested that the book cover art be in the style of Gauguin. I jumped at the chance to enter.
I looked at his styles, and decided to go for his portrait style.

Though I think they went with a landscape or skyline or something, I was pretty proud at my painting, and it was all because being a Reeves' fan had bought in an opportunity to try something new.
So in a way, Keanu Reeves...I guess...inspired me to step out of my shell artistically :D. Maybe my entry will show below?
