WILD / HARD / ROUGH
"WILD / HARD / ROUGH - this word combination immediately conjures up images of Charles Bukowski, loudly demanding a bottle of red wine, provoking the audience, and leaving the scene in a whirlwind, with an inebriated admirer in his arms.
WILD / HARD / ROUGH - and this puts us squarely on deck of the MS Europa, where we come to the unpleasant realization that our course depends on how much balls the captain has.
WILD / HARD / ROUGH - our thoughts take another leap - this time to primitive wood sculptures, to metal sheets that deform themselves, are torn asunder, and to concrete, broken, weathered, raw.
And regardless of all this: my studio lies on the Wild river, my favorite material is hard stone, and when the weather is cold and drizzly, my voice gets rough"
Wild.. out of control/untamed..wild animals..to be wild about something..somebody is getting wild..he's playing the wildman
Hard...hard/unrelenting..as hard as granite..harder than steel
Rough...uneven..coarse..unplaned wood..with rough manners..rough nights
