Time Kills - Even Becker

6 USD
Eros, fame, anxiety, Goya, humiliation, Robert Hughes, Pall Malls, hanged men, Chevrolet Caprices, aneurysms, comets and men in canoes daydreaming of murder. A cauldron of fear and loathing and Art Brut scrawling, Becker’s text exhortations and aphorisms ("Shape Up, Kid!" "Everythings Complex") stand alone or are joined to drawings that manage to be both part of the high art historical continuum and filled with savant atavistic rawness. Not nice, not pretty, but memorable, powerful and occasionally beautiful.
