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, ...

Iela by alecdawsonphoto

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

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?


Music Video (sort of)

Finally finished my latest for Clarinet and Orchestra - a dark, brooding litany called "Black Hills" (after the ones in Olympia, not South Dakota). In memory of a relationship that went south years ago. You can see it on the tube here if you're interested:
