Someone suggested to me that I should do a series of images around the theme of “Empty Rooms”. Coincidentally that same day I read an interview with Sam Shepard, who I consider to be the greatest living American playwright who said in answer to the question “Where do you work now?”
“More and more by myself. Absolutely by myself. If there’s even a dog in the room, I get a little nervous.”
So he needs an empty room to write in these days. Of course, no room is ever really empty. If nothing else they always seem to have air in them.
Someone else suggested it was time for me to do more self portraits. So I thought I might combine the two ideas…
Here is an early attempt.
