Statement Viet Nam : Some Kind of History Since childhood I have struggled to comprehend images from the American/Viet Nam War. This struggle has always been characterized by an intimate anger and repulsion–at the image for permanently and visibly recording such atrocities, and at myself for somehow being connected to the people that were being […]

Idyllic, rural, urban […]

Whereas artistic media such as painting, […]

So we should cast off all gloomy thoughts about our earthy lot and enjoy the pleasures of snow, moon, flowers and autumn leaves and drinking wine; living our lives like a gourd bobbing buoyantly downstream. This is […]
