Succubus by vpotemkin

A very unique work that once again exceeds my ideas of an artistic nude. We have several breaks with tradition: the monochrome toning, ...

Beauty out of Symmetry. This photograph has several examples that put the lie to the monotony of symmetrical design. There are several ...

Michelle by alecdawsonphoto

Once again, my quest for the "true" artistic nude is rewarded. And, as a bonus, it is in monochrome! What's not to like? This is a phot...

Fields 2 by kalika31

"Artistic Nude" is probably one of the more abused terms in the visual artist canon. One of the misuses of the label is that one aspect...

Journal History

Interview with the Artist

Who are you?

Do any of us know who we are? I am only who other people believe that I am—if they believe I exist in the first place.

Do you make a fetish out of hiding your true self behind grandiloquent verbal legerdemain?


What are you most looking forward to in life?

Death. Hopefully soon.

What is your main philosophy of life?

Always keep them guessing and Ne Plus Ultra!

What does 'Ne Plus Ultra' mean?

"Go no further." Legend states that this phrase was carved on the colossus of Rhodes as a warning to sailors that if they went beyond that point they would never return (the fear of uncharted waters and all that). I use it a little differently - it is sort of a goal in my art work: high quality that cannot be exceeded. Of course that will never happen in this lifetime but it keeps me going.

Do you have any friends?

I don't know—most of them either deny knowing me or change the subject with a blush when my name is mentioned.

Do you have a sense of humor?

The only laughter you will hear from me is the sound a person makes when the blade of the headsman is descending.

Are you an honest man?

"No" (think about it)

What kind of legacy or accomplishments do you expect to leave behind you?

Does it matter?


The Final Conversation

Journal Entry: Sat Mar 1, 2014, 7:15 AM
The Final Conversation

I was getting ready to send a birthday card to someone - a special friend all the way back from high school. Our last conversation had been a bit strained and there were a lot of things I wanted to say to her.

But I'm too late. She died and no one told me.

She always said she'd live to be 90 - and she barely made 50.

And I'll never be able to talk to her again.

She is free - free of her pain at last. But it is so lonely for those of us on the other side of the veil - and I wish I had known that was the last conversation.

In Pace Requiescat.
