Gonzo 2

Gonzo 2

“Where the hand goes, the eye follows; where the eye goes the mind follows; where the mind goes, the heart follows, and thus is born expression.”
Sanskrit writing

The thing about these is the required attention to surface and shape and mark and color - they are the subject rather than a landscape or naked lady or cheeseburger. These things are fine as subjects but there is something seductive about the risk involved when the relative comfort of things is removed from the equation. That and the fact that one cannot for even a moment loose focus on process.
