There is a stiffness in the figures drawn from photographs, rather than from life, it is true. Recorded, translated, objectified, exploited for art, for affect, and why not?

A reactionary red-herring...the question is not what, but how...we are so quick to separate ideas from each other, but they secretly steal away and make love, at any rate.
