obsessive drawing


i read an interesting article today in the ny times about an exhibition at the american folk art museum entitled obsessive drawing:

"But why, if Mr. Andolsek wasn't thinking art, or audience, did he do what he did for so long, drawing thousands of pictures over 50 years? Because he wanted to, and because he had to, which in his case are more or less the same thing. The act of drawing and painting, he has said, helped to ease a debilitating anxiety that had dogged him all his life. Once he started a drawing, the anxiety lifted. Relief arrived as a state of entrancement."

by the way.....it is my humble opinion that the american folk art museum is one of the best buildings in new york....check it out
