the edge

Whoever fights monsters should see to it that in the process he does not become a monster,

for if you gaze long enough into the abyss, the abyss will gaze back into you.

/ Friedrich Nietzsche /

  1. Very striking John. And the different gaze from each eye takes my own eyes back and forth, back and forth…then all around. I’m also taken by how the face blends into the background on one side and is defined (defended?) with the thick black line on the other side. The balances in this piece are evocative!


    1. I’m more than gratified I have touched a special place for you Marina. The light of giving you this gift takes away some of the dark of the edge…and yes, he is right, of course…
