“The Acid & Nicotine pen drawings are made with car battery acid and processed with the heat from my cigarette as I draw. They are the product of my various recent attempts to recover the academic drawing skills that I learned at a Czech art school years ago – or to see how much I have unlearned or forgotten, or what I can do with what is left. They are drawn from photographs and the subjects are various cultural icons of my time. In this instance, Rainer Werner Fassbinder.”
