...and here for portraits of the Lost & Beautiful.

The idea that comes to mind when looking at the some of the best paintings and drawings, the best work really in all sorts of art forms, is that they embody an acknowledgment of their own imperfection. And this suggests humility, humanity, honesty. Life is off-kilter, unfinished, damaged...so, in a way, the best works are a manifestation, a mirror, of these aspects of life: not an idealization of one aspect (perhaps beauty), but an amalgamation of the mistakes and corrections of a journey or process.

maker of things, eg. paintings, drawings, diaries, inept photos, odd little books.

    "the napper.
    I think that is appropriate...
    because these photographs are dreamscapes.the stuff of nocturnal wonderings...
    and they overlap into this dimension."
