Another response to the Baselitz catalogue:

Take a look at A Big Night Down the Drain and you see shame, vulgarity, brazen sexuality and embarrassment.  This painting was based on a night at a club where an irish poet came out on stage with his penis hanging out.  Baselitz saw utter rawness, despite the attack on the audience.  The other point is the act itself and the setting in which it takes place.  Dead center stage, on show hiding absolutely nothing.  attack/joke/accident.

This approach is very common with me.  The imagery is loosely based on movement, not a point in time but rather a segment.  As if to try to tell a story with one cell in a comic book.  Things get ran over or muddled, forgotton and other things stay the same.
