  1. I really like this, Gorj—I keep trying to formulate my thoughts on it, but they keep coming out fatuous in a way that this piece decidedly is not.

  2. Dotty Parka says:

    This is so beautifully empathetic. Nice job.

  3. pinky says:

    This makes something ache inside me. Well done.

  4. Sue says:

    I like the sharp Polaroid shards.

    In your Pollack-esque piece I am intriqued by the print of something. It is almost a shoe print, but I guess not. It reminds me a bit of Shusaku Endo and his words of Christ from the fumie, “Trample! Trample! I more than anyone know of the pain in your foot. Trample! It was to be trampled on by men that I was born into this world. It was to share men’s pain that I carried my cross.”

    And in war more than any perhaps we trample the Christ of whatever beauty or meanings your little Polaroids capture. And how do we break the silence and say no to it all.
