Romaine Brooks, Self-Portrait , 1923. Oil on canvas.  With this self-portrait, Brooks envisioned her modernity as an artist and a person. The modulated shades of gray, stylized forms, and psychological gravity exemplify her deep commitment to aesthetic principles. The shaded, direct gaze conveys a commanding and confident presence, an attitude more typically associated with her male counterparts. The riding hat and coat and masculine tailoring recall conventions of aristocratic portraiture...

The vignettes alternate in structure between narrative prose, poetry, and play-like passages of dialogue. As a result, the novel has been classified as a composite novel or as a short story cycle. Though some characters and situations recur between vignettes, the vignettes are mostly...

Graphite on paper. About the time that Gaston Lachaise drew this portrait sketch of Harold Hart Crane dancing, the poet wrote to a friend, “I’m the acknowledged crack dancer everywhere now, and was even in danger for a while of having to pose quite nude for Lachaise, which would have been rather tiresome I imagine.” Lachaise befriended the writer in 1923 when both were contributing to the avant-garde arts journal The Dial . Although the portrait resembles Crane, with his heavy brow, full...

Printed Web Editions is a series of print-on-demand zines published by Paul Soulellis. It’s tempting to call Sorry to dump on you like this.zip a pornographic work, since an actual porn collection is embedded within it — the artist’s own archive of men accumulated in fifteen years of web browsing. But these JPGs serve only as a substrate: thin scaffolding for an epic textual work that hangs loosely from the files. The numerous written narratives describe intimate exchanges between...

Printed Web Editions is a series of print-on-demand zines published by Paul Soulellis. The 38 texture maps included in Three Digs A Skull were created by photo-modeling software. The maps are used to add photorealistic surface information to web-based 3D models scanned by different users. They are produced by an algorithm and meant to be parsed by modeling software, but not seen by humans. As such, their aesthetic is non-intentional. Each visitor to tex_archive.com activates a search for a new...
