NEW BORN PAINTED IMAGES

JOSHUA ASTER’S WORDS AND IMAGES from Inglewood, introduced by Max Picard via Annie Dillard

these images “seem as though they had just come out of the opening in a wall; as if they had wriggled their way out with difficulty. They seem unsafe and hesitant because they have come out too far and still belong more to silence than to themselves.”

A spring collection of shattered dreams.
