Buddy Nestor was an abstract painter until a few years ago when he struck a strange new chord with portraiture that took his work to a new level. Derivative of his abstract style, Nestor’s “spiritual x-ray” portraits are intended to remove the mask of beauty to reveal darker, more honest aspects of the personalities of his subjects.
Belying his intention of removing beauty, and regardless of how uncomfortable his works are to many people, they are paradoxically comprised of pleasing shapes and muted colors, like marbleized colored plastic or objects seen through distorted glass. They are mesmerizing and even beautiful, disturbing only when their full context is realized.
The uncanny and destabilizing nature of his work is powerful. It mesmerizes and confuses the logic of the viewer opening up cracks in the psyche. This is one of the most important things art can do: open the mind. -
So I was feeding my gecko some banana chunks, because she’s been a good little girl recently. Anyways, I looked away for a minute, and when I looked back, the little lady had made herself a banana beard, it’s the cutest fucking thing ever!
