Image of the Day

Raymond Pettibon, Untitled (And as True), 2009

From Whatytuyp, the exhibition catalog for Pettibon's recent show at Kunstmuseum Luzern, Switzerland. The text at the bottom reads:
And as true to life as if it had been taken from the notebook of a cardiologist, but sketched in this case to express nothing but sweet, exquisite emotion -- if you will have it. And who would think him unkind for that, and not accept it, any more than the surgeon would despise him for being afflicted with a serious disturbance of the circulation.
