LOVE IS THE JOKE

"It is partly a life of leisure that has enabled me to grow. To my great detriment-- for leisure without fortune breeds debts.... But also to my great profit, as regards sensibility and meditation and the faculty of dandyism and dilettantism. Other men of letters are, for the most part, base ignorant drudges."
"As I have fully proved, to work is less wearisome than to amuse oneself."

I didn't know her, but I loved her drawings. I knew of her because the Internet is a queer-friendly free space where ideas and images fly around like missives, or like missiles. I assumed we would cross paths eventually. Sadly, no we never will because Mark Aguhar died yesterday.

I wrote this post for Proof Gallery's new blog the other day. In which I discuss Whitney Houston, Mike Kelley, diva worship, Los Angeles, and "The Preacher's Wife." Take a look. Proof became my fave gallery in Boston when they presented my solo show "Ultra Sensitive" in 2010. I'm supposed to write more for them in the future, so look out.
