I had such a great night. Bert Green has one of the best galleries for a show and he's on top of it all. I got to see Johnny and meet Clive Barker. Clive was a very loving person, kind, gracious and surrounded by friends and fans. Right where he should be. The work was intense. I felt afire when I entered. It wasn't the erotica... it was more of the inner flame of the body of work. Eros and Atrapos. Beautiful. A light in the dark. Provocative. Bewitching. Lovely.
I ended up walking out with a photo of Johnny Raymond and the catalogue. Keep sakes.
And... it is always, always, always lovely to see you Johnny. Thank you for being the adorable host. I look forward to seeing you again.
If you can make it out to the Downtown LA Art Walk and see the show, you should. "Imagining Man" runs from November 11th - December 19th, 2009.
