Contemporary Head Studies

“My looking is of incomparable richness and inexhaustible variety, for it contains two aspects, stability and change… I followed the movement of people, cars, changes in the direction of my gaze, changes in apparent size, shifts in my state of mind, and the supplanting of one thing by another in my attention. By virtue of its length, its direction, its hue and value, each mark held, condensed, all that could be recorded at that moment of my looking at things…”   –Norman Turner, On the Structure of Looking, ©2004

“…whenever one approaches a subject with the respect for another, and not as a mere construct of the mind, it begins to take on this mysterious energy of vortex, which swings one, and flings one all over the place. The frenzy of the artist, notorious in ancient as well as modern times, is the outward evidence of his determination to touch at least the fringe of this whirlwind as it escapes. Only time will tell what sense he has brought back, but he has no doubt of the awe and power he has approached.”   –  Peter (Miles) Richmond, 1922-2008
