A joke ?
A humorous mood?
In Greek the word ”monk” also refer to a hanger standing in a room.
Is it an implication? Does the artist intend to unmask himself and be exposed to his self and to his viewers?
Who is the “Monk”?
Is it the artist himself?
Is it what he would like to be?
Or is it what he is afraid he might become?
Is it a sign of the times?
The lonelyness of the modern western reality?
One might wonder how many “Monks” can be found out there...
Is that bad? Or, perhaps, good?
Who can really determine this?
