Claudia Fitch’s Gothic Character Study (2008), graphite on paper, 24 by 36 inches

At Greg Kucera Gallery. (Gallery site here.)

This creepy drawing of chairs with undulating backs and a mural where nothing has a head reminds me of the interior set design of a Vincent Price horror movie in which everything is revealed at the end to have been just a play. No deaths really happened, nobody actually got hurt. I watched this at an early age, and I think it instilled in me the idea that anything might at any moment be uncovered as false and harmless. Maybe this is partly why I’m failing to become worked up by the dire news about the economy, which is making me numb.

That bolded sentence is kinda how I wishfully think of your posts and columns. Sadly, though, I think I know better.
