More Duvall......

I regret to say that I was unaware of how many family member J.S.D. had living, especially in Iowa. On behalf of the Surrealists scattered across the globe I want to extend our sympathies and let you know his work touched many of us.

Schlechter Duvall has passed away...

I posted about my Surrealist commrade Schlechter Duvall back in May. It is with sadness that I report from his family that he has passed away. I will be posting some new info on Schlechter in tribute to him this coming week.

His ever-potent quote which used to be next to my easel: "Surrealism always was, still is, and always will be the first and last force of revolt on this Earth. It exists only for one reason: to realize freedom. And for freedom's sake, I want to warn every human being that surrealism is more than ever ALIVE!"
