Interests and Personality

BiographyI have been doing images all my life. Studied under Gasson and many others. Influences one of Diane Arbus ,Manet, Dagas and Ensal Adams.AM influenced by the Greek sculptors. One can see the move into three dimensionality with the sculpting of “athlete scrapinoill” standing in the polykleitan motive. The Egyptians. Esp under Akhenaten, one can see how to grow out of stylism . I can tell a real Pollock from a forgery by the presence or lack of fractal qualities. So much art history, from Talbot with his paper negatives, Steichen with his complete control of the medium, and have always preferred the personality in photos by Cartier-Bresson and Minor White to Adams. The paintings at Lascaux have always inspired me. Finally overcoming a devastating divorce and looking for work in the art field
InterestsHey, could use some paint any color you like but must be real oil, maybe send you an image. I really am a starving artist and I am out of dough myself at times. Send enuff and will start sending paintings.
MusicAnything live or over a good sound system. Even good rap. Mozart: Violin Concertos 3 & 5 / Mutter, Karajan, BerliPhilharmonicic Orchestra. Irish music folk blues but not that nervy jazz.
FilmsGuy film witcharacterer development and violence and humor. Really liked Lock Stock and two Smoking Barrels. A story from life.Movies ah. The best line I have used lately was going into a bar in Kentucky. Had been at another establishment where I refused to pay the cover because the band sucked, it really did. Went with a group of people and they all had to pay. ANYWAY. I could not stand the band and was told I should not go to this bar. When I walked in I realize they were right. The bouncer was a well muscled ugly brute and most of the clientele looked to be on parole. I said to him “I know what a punk is, he says ‘I don’t start nothing but I finish it’. Well I am going to start nothing and you are the mother fucker that’s gonna finish it” > The drinks were cheap and strong and quite the floor show. I lived another day
TelevisionI Pray you never have to live through dope sick.
BooksI am tired of reading. I have forgotten over 95% of what I have read. My life has been more exciting than most books. One time in a bistro connected to a book store I said hello to a woman with a pile of books. She turned away. I said here you are with all these books and next to you a character more interesting than those in most your books but you are afraid to converse. Keep to your books.
HeroesI wish they were still around. Only my mother is left. Are fighting men could all be heroes if we did not waist them in vaine, The shame is on us.

I have really enjoyed looking at your galleries. Some of your images are quite twisted- which I like. I think you'd like a painting I did a few years ago- it was very controversial and I wouldn't dare upload it onto this site as it could offend some. This outrageous painting made a grown man cry.
