Long Term Relationship
ink on paper
(The first time i showed this drawing was in a gallery on queen st. w. and on the last day of the exhibit a very sweet couple in their 80’s were peering through the sidewalk window, arguing about something, but i couldn’t hear. After a few minutes they came barging in the gallery and walked straight to this piece. And yelled at each at each either, debating about the relationship between this couple. I listened and leaned in, passively suggesting I was available for input (as the artist) but they didn’t even notice my pathetic attempt to advise and so, I reclined back into my chair and went back to drinking my cider I had not so secretly poured into a water bottle. They stayed for about 15 minutes yelling at each other about the piece, barley looked at the other drawings and left. That’s why I like this drawing. This drawing was later sold as a wedding present).
i don’t know which i love more: the drawing, or the story behind it.
