THE PROPHET IS CRYING

“The creative act is not performed by the artist alone; the spectator brings the work in contact with the external world by deciphering and interpreting its inner qualifications and thus adds his contribution to the creative act.”
Marcel Duchamp

The collector visited my studio and went through a stack of my drawings, picking this and two more. This piece was framed since it was exhibited before several times, but he wanted them unframed, so I took it out of the frame. It is nice to find a collector that specifically like this kind of work.

Another drawing sold together with this I posted before: DARK SURPRISE


“For the first time after so many years I come back to cry aloud in the desert. Because this is the mission of the intellectual who is truly a prophet—to cry in the desert. The greatest of the prophets, Isaiah, made it notable, of course, when he spoke of himself as the voice of one "crying in the wilderness." Because the mission of the intellectual is to be the man who, from his desert, his basic solitude—and man is only man amid his truth, only himself when he is alone—cries aloud to others and invites them to each into his own solitude.”
José Ortega y Gasset, An Interpretation of Universal History
