“ Whenever people agree with me I always feel I must be wrong. ”

—    Oscar Wilde (via quotes-shape-us)

“ Never regret thy fall,
O, Icarus, of the fearless flight,

For the greatest tragedy of them all,

Is never to feel the burning light. ”

"What’s probably most comedic to me is the writing of the article. It focuses so much on the cars, and whether they got automatic or stick shift transmissions. There’s that line, ‘we had a little chit-chat, and then I asked him to kill my mom.’ That all feels like bad ’80s horror movie writing to me.”—Brian Kennon

Still Life is now on view at MOCA Grand Avenue. Listen to an audio interview with Kennon about his L.A. connection to the work on The Curve.
