Peter Clarke (1929 - )
Geisha


mixed media
50 x 35cm

I've been a geisha for many years & I've loved
my profession & being a part of this tradition.
But, occasionally, looking at businessmen, getting
drunk while swilling beer & sake, the thought
does occur to me - my secret ambition! -
that what I'd like to do sometime is let my hair
down &, with great passion, show them how the
rhumba should be performed.
