Shop

(1,772 views – 8 June 2013.)

I like to think it is respect for the past (and not accidental survival through neglect) that figures so strongly in Portland. From original old neons to historic drinking fountains. Either way it’s still a truly great civic outcome and always a pleasure to behold.

Here is yet another wonderful example – Champ’s, a working barber shop, still true to its era, in the community minded, St Johns neighborhood.

Simply respecting and celebrating life … in all its magnificent diversity … is nowadays the truly radical act of any artist.

It is no accident that one of the most significant ways of revitalizing the spirit and reconnecting with our deeper senses & more worthy selves is found in communion with nature and life itself … and in our power to imagine.

There is much that is wondrous to behold, value, defend and gain strength from.
