Her work is fun. Some of it is light humor. Other is parody. It is not drawn out of despair. No graveside humor. Mostly wonder and bewilderment.

Tom Waits

Tom Waits always seemed old to me. His voice was old. Raspy and tarnished like Dylan’s voice is now. But then I saw a picture of Waits as a kid and I realized I knew him. He was the kid next door. The one who walked around the neighbourhood on stilts and peaked in people’s windows. And he always smoked. Like it was the cigarette that was singing and Waits was his dummy. But he’s a great talent. And I’ve loved him like the aunt who we used to visit in Baltimore. And who used to hug me so tight in her big bosom.

Stan Winston

Stan Winston. Creatures from the nightmares of children. I can still feel the breath of t-rex on my face. These creatures in many films are the stars. We can almost imagine how horrible a world it would be, were they real.

Roy Lichtenstein

I had a huge comic book collection when I was a kid. Over a thousand. A couple dozen, I later learned, were worth considerable money. My mother threw them all out. Perhaps I was traumatized but I have never had a warm feeling for Lichtenstein’s work. Lichtenstein did receive considerable criticism. Many said he was parodying modern pop culture. If this is the case why would you create so many different paintings in this style.

His photographs are mesmerizing. The landscape is bleak. And the body language of his favourite character is depressing. Almost oppressive. Tommy Ingberg.
