Scars of Mayhem by janellemckain Scars of Mayhem by janellemckain
11" x 14" graphite on paper

A Poem about this drawing by Ron Androla:

her tears feather, her feather tears,
girl of my dreams, twigs in her braided, berried hair.
those awful fingers infect her body & a half-split moon.
miracle mona lisa smile
centuries later from different, wolf-like live eyes.
girl of my dreams is not her dream.

You're whole gallery is fantastic. Beautiful renditions, form creativeness, unique style, all the elements of a truly fine artist that doesn't act like a camera, but such use of a very creative mind.

What I find fascinating here is the weaving of so many things or partial things that we'd probably not expect to be woven together. On the one hand that seems to be a microcosmic definition of your work in general; on the other, it'd seem that, were we to speed past light itself (is that the idea of the light streams emanating from the stars?) what else would there be left other than pressing, feeling, finding, and that enigmatic smile of somehow beginning again? Another very interesting piece ...

Somehow it >feels< that it IS you....who's looking me in the eyes.....and what's even more strange....we don't even know each other. But I'm certain that it IS you.....
This is (amongst other things) what this beautiful picture tells me....

Fabulous imagery. The detailing is enormous and delcate as always.
The choice of words that goes along with the concept fits very well but still leave some for the imagination. Great work, both of you!
