I just wrote this (Feb 11, 2023) about Andreas Gursky:

Andreas Gursky was born in East Germany but grew up in West Germany
Whatever he’s trying to depict reminds me of an ‘inescapability’
That might not only describe the eastern bloc but also the inescapable monotony of a continent with very few languages
There is a lack of a solid thing to hold on to in his photos which reduces the viewer to a feeling of overwhelming helplessness and perhaps a blind quality of abstract disorientation [end of feb 2023 writing on Gursky]

What's the term for 'cultural freedom of expression' that would inspire a pilgrim to travel in the opposite direction back to Europe

I went on uppers in boarding school to try to make me feel better about myself. They didn't do a thing. My cool druggy friends gave me crap for going on pharmaceuticals like it was inauthentic

Decision making

I also put a lot of work on my Facebook page "A Cortright Devereux"

"Life is too short to stress yourself with people who don't even deserve to be an issue in your life"



The question of why color exists is as interesting to me as the question of why anything exists at all

People say my drawings look like lithographs. I am happy to make a plethora of them anyway
