Portrait of an Artist with Twenty-Six Horses is a wonderfully convoluted clash of cultures, of the city and everything that is not the city, of man and himself. It’s about sinking in the quicksand at the bottom of the arroyo or making an indelible mark in the cliff-face towering above. And this Empty-Grave release is about preserving paintings on stone instead of standing by as the rain and wind brush them away.
