Jeffrey Silverthorne - Late portraits

More known for his provocative pictures in the 70's, Jeffrey Silverthorne is still, at 65 years, a great creator, and it's not so often in art that artists maintain their level of creativity. His late portraits, in which he often appears, are a desolating testimony of the powerless figure of the artist, unable to reveal the irreductible mystery of his models. This is in resonnance with my present evening feeling. Rarely I felt so useless and powerless. Finally, sadness will prevail. A link to see more from Jeffrey Silverthorne here (notably his disturbing pictures of quiet lifeless bodies)
