Cy Twombly 1928-2011

It's with great sadness that I note the passing, at the age of 83, of Cy Twombly.

Much of my photographic work is influenced more by abstract art and artists than by photography and other photographers. Since I discovered his work a few years ago, none have inspired me more than Twombly. The last of the great American painters, and arguably the world's greatest living artist, he will be greatly missed...but of course his work will continue to serve as testament to his brilliance, and continue to inspire.

Knockout, Hero, Genius
