Art Without Anesthetic
My personal aesthetic means never anesthetizing nor censoring the pictures I draw. Following is four pen and ink drawings completed within a week of one another that show you what I mean. The first I drew while caring for my dying father; the second after reading a report in the NYTs, the third after sitting through an interminable Lutheran church service that I finished nine hours after hearing the benediction. The fourth and last, inspiration, and meaning unknown.
A week of pain and panic but devoid of anesthesia or, God forbid, self-censorship.
