NARCISSUS, art print
We see a young man entranced with his beauty as it reflects in water. The water ripples radiate out from the center of his eyes and these ripples result in perfect geometric patterns centered on his face and mouth. Is this a kiss?
“A pencil is so capable of
worlds like Narcissus
in the silence of his pool
you can become lost in it.
This drawing, like the myth,
is about the power of obsession.
Drawn into a spiral of refinement
just one more stroke – obsession.”
(Excerpt from poem by Steven E. Counsell)
