In Magritte’s painting Les Amants a man and a woman are
kissing. But it can’t be much fun because they have
cloths over their heads so they can’t see each other.
I know two lovers who could not see each other correctly.
They kissed a lot but what they saw was not really the
other person. It was a person each one had made up. This
made them unhappy but they couldn’t stop doing it. They
had to make each other up.

James Laughlin, “Les Amants”

    i thought Magritte painted people without faces because he saw his mom after she drowned and her dress had covered her...
