the seamiest scenes


Read this passage by Australian surrealist James Gleeson.

It’s inscribed on Roslyn St, Kings Cross and describes the talents of one of our most famous artists, William Dobell.

It portrays a man so attuned with his abilities that he could find aesthetic beauty in what a socialised mind would call “pretty fucking ugly”.

The Acid Midget grew organically from the mouldy gutters of Sydney.

He included that bin in the frame to be poetic. What an artist.

He could create TITTEHS from the ugly, the sordid or the ridiculous. TITTEH-MEISTER could look at the seamiest scene and transmute their dross into the precious metal of TITTEHS.

















ps. WHEN ARE YOU GOING TO POST SOME ACTUAL FKN TITTEHS?
