In 2007 David Lynch had a retrospective of his paintings, photographs, drawings, alternative films and sound work at the Fondation Cartier. On the visit to see Moebius I was torn between Jean Giraud's catalogue or that of Lynch. David Lynch won comfortably, a staggering body of work, deeply dark drawings and superb lithographs. This man's talent has no ends!
"Painting is something that is always changing and expanding. And the only way to evolve is through the act of painting. You can think about it, but it's not the same as being there. So when you return to painting after a break, you start up in a very strange place. It's very discombobulated and takes quite a while to get back into where you are solidly evolving. The thing I find is that I have a long way to go. But it's a great trip." DL
