Artist's description:

This work is named by the quote : "Le ciel d'un jour à l'autre est humide ou serein, Et tel pleure aujourd'hui qui sourira demain." from André Chénier
Translated in english as : "The sky from a day to an other is wet or serene, and such cries today who will smile tomorrow."
But it won't stop reminding me a Brazilian song of Chico Buarque.
"Amanhã vai ser outro dia
Você que inventou esse estado
E inventou de inventar
Toda a escuridão
Você que inventou o pecado
Esqueceu-se de inventar
O perdão
Apesar de você
Amanhã há de ser
Outro dia
Você que inventou a tristeza
Ora, tenha a fineza
De desinventar
Apesar de você
Amanhã há de ser
Outro dia
Você vai ter que ver
A manhã renascer
E esbanjar poesia
Como vai se explicar
Vendo o céu clarear
De repente, impunemente
Apesar de você..."
Translated as :
"Tomorrow will be another day
You invented this state
And invented to invent
All darkness
You who invented sin
Forgot to invent
Although you
Tomorrow is to be
Another day
You who invented the sadness
Now has the finesse
of disinvent it
Although you
Tomorrow is to be
Other day
You'll have to see
The morning reborn
And wasting poetry
As will be explained
Seeing the sky clear
Suddenly, impunity
