Francis Alys - Fabiola (2008)

“The story of St. Fabiola, a 4th-century Roman aristocrat from the Fabia family who is supposed to have been an early Mother Teresa, became popular in the late 19th century, and an 1885 portrait of her by a French academician (which is now lost) has since been endlessly copied around the world.

Appearing on postcards, posters and religious trinkets, Fabiola has been a beloved subject for countless painters, most of them amateurs. The portrait’s format is almost always the same: Fabiola is seen in profile facing left, her head covered by a rich red veil.

Mr. Alys, who was born in Belgium in 1959 and moved to Mexico City in 1990, began collecting Fabiola paintings—as the genre is called—about 15 years ago, buying them at thrift shops, flea markets and antiques stores primarily in Mexico and Europe. He has previously shown his collection three times, when it was much smaller; the current presentation includes more than 300 works.”

Earlier today I saw a post by Ginchiest where someone asked him what he thought Barry Allen’s personality is like and I was happy to see that he said basically what Mark Waid wrote in that Green Lantern/Flash Brave and the Bold book because that’s pretty much what I thought. Well that and the little you saw of him in Final Crisis.
Anyways, I wanted to draw The Flash and try to convey what I thought his personality should be if you just modernized the Silver Age interpretation.

Some day, people will understand how to build a railway station so that it streams out truth like a temple, and is, in fact, simply an expression suited to what is within it.

- Rudolf Steiner, on the the true expressions of technology and art.

In Adriaan van Havendaal’s Notebook - by Guy Davenport.
Davenport (1927 - 2005) was an amazing gay artist as well as essayist and short story writer.  His paintings and illustrations often take the form of strangely ordered images - beautifully depicted men, shapes, natural forms - juxtaposed against each other with an unknown cataloging principle.  
His writing was the same - flourishes of images interspersed with philosophies that are almost sad to move along a line of narrative.
“The meaning of the world, said Wittgenstein, is outside the world. Events and values are distinguishable only in relation to others. A totality of events and values, the world itself, requires another.”

I spoke at MoMA’s dome in New York on Sunday.  I’m the first gay porn star to speak at MoMA I think.  Anyway, here’s me in front of two occult-looking speakers - shaped like the occult-looking Washington Monument.  (Conner Habib/me)
