His bio is one of the best things I have ever read. I just like it, so much. So here is an excerpt, to accompany the images I shot with my $30 little film camera down in Melbourne.
'The first piece of art I can remember is actually now hanging in my kitchen. It is a self portrait my Mother did while she was in Art School. She was very pregnant with my older brother and thought it would be funny to paint herself as the Virgin Mary. So this painting, for all it's cracked and aging beauty, looks very pious and intimidating. It hung in the guest bedroom of my Grandfather's house that my brothers and I would bunk in when staying there. On more than three occasions, I woke in the middle of the night and saw the eyes of this painting alive and looking down at me! My Mother ( the Virgin Mary) in a very ominous voice would say, "Go back to sleep, Brandon!"'
I love it, and that's how I want everything hanging in my home to be too. Ominous and with great sentiment.
