this is an eye-catching piece that grabbed me at first glance, then turned to something vaguely threatening. perhaps it's her LOOMING over that creates a feeling of oppression, but i can truthfully state that in addition to its fairytale-look in its burst of fireflies-- the flier has a distinctly vampiric quality-

intriguing, scott.-

Cornell boxes got nothin on you.

Joseph Cornell was always one of my all time faves. I walked the streets of New York outskirts collecting junk. Repressed gay, lived with Mom. Crafted goth Gorey-meets-Picabia ornaments to non-Hopperian angst, and dreamy clarities -- spotlit shells, pale moons suspended papery in dark blue.

To me the most fascinating aspect of these pieces is that they resonate on a subconcious level and bring to the surface all kinds of unrecognized connections...things that are present but not yet dragged out into the light.

I'm glad you felt something in this.

Cornell is one of my wife's favorites, too.

By the way, I am glad to see you and Jenni both
so happy and productive and doing so well.

You guys rock.
