The Outsider


The Outsider   2012
Ink on paper (50cm x 50cm)

H.P. Lovecraft is the most important writer in the
world for me. Sure he was a little weird and also
xenophobic. Not to defend his ignorant way of
thinking, but I would argue that if he was not
like he was (a misanthropic,xenophobic bigot),
he wouldn’t write the genius stuff he did.
I think this guy was so removed from a realistic
self image and society that his books have a truly
alien quality on them. He wrote so objective about
humanity it says more about us than most famous
philosophers can even comprehend.
