what should we see in your drawings?

There’s a little invisible door in every drawing.
A door that opens and leads to a long more or less well-lit corridor.
There are other doors in the corridor.
A door that leads toward the grotesque, a door that squeaks, a closed door, a deadpan door, a lightly painted door, a door with a gaping lock, a door with a viscous and slippery knob, a door that doesn’t open well, a badly adjusted door… and many other openings.
Every reader opens this door unconsciously, enters the corridor and selects the door of his choice.

also in the package from france containing stu mead’s private zone was a copy of “monographie lacrymale” by another physically disabled artist: monsieur stéphane blanquet - a retrospective overview book i waited until was officially sold out before deciding i want a copy (thankfully it can still be found) - french of course but includes english translations of the essays - i love his stuff - check out his animations on youtube - i’m happy to learn he has an exhibition in tokyo next april (at the perspicacious span art gallery - where else?!)
