“To view these pictures puts the viewer in the position of the creative observer, who creates by observing. There is a distinct sensation when this creation occurs. One is looking at the picture, then a face, a narrow street filled with red mist, a mineshaft, an area of red huts swim into view… here is a man pissing against a wall. Behind the wall is a slag heap. Here is a thin, frail man in a suit of powdery gray ash. One can see the surface of the work move and shift and come into focus. The whole picture is ready to soar into space, almost ready …” William Burroughs, Painting & Guns, 1993 Hanuman Books, NY
