Rather than that, I think the positive effect comes from the frank portrayal of things usually kept very private -- things like pooping and "playing solitaire" as much as nakedness -- mixed in equally with everything else. That's what makes the book I just bought romantic and "something to do with being in love and not being in love."Of course, the disclosure of "just draw tits and things" also has a similar sort of frankness. Anyway, it all "refutes isolation."
Thank you, Kerry. That thoughtful analysis of my stuff makes me feel pretty good. This little sketch was sort of self-scolding warm-up to working on the 31 Drawings That... mini; sometimes I fret that the amount of nudity in my work could become a crutch.I'm glad you think it refutes isolation. Sometimes I feel like that's all that art is good for, really.
Self-scolding! That info puts a nice twist on what we're seeing!Maybe being hyper-self-critical is necessary to what you do but I must say to my eye your work is far from crutches! Fit as a fiddle and twice as tuneful.
I love the lines and shapes and elegant boldness of your stuff. Really inspirational.
