exploring the dark side

>> David Lynch <<
I See Myself, 1992

in his studio, 1991
"All my paintings are organic, violent comedies. 
They have to be violently done and primitive and crude, and to achieve that I try to let nature paint more than I paint."

Alice Thinks about Suicide, 2008

Lynch at Universal Studios, 1981

 "I wouldn't know what to do with [colour]. Colour to me is too real. It's limiting. It doesn't allow too much of a dream. 
The more you throw black into a colour, the more dreamy it gets ... Black has depth. It's like a little egress; you can go into it, 
and because it keeps on continuing to be dark, the mind kicks in, and a lot of things that are going on in there become manifest. 
And you start seeing what you're afraid of. You start seeing what you love, and it becomes like a dream."

Here I Am - Me as a House,  1990

Mystery Man in Lost Highway (1997)

"Ed: Do you own a video camera?
Renee: No. Fred hates them.
Fred: I like to remember things my own way.
Ed: What do you mean by that?
Fred: How I remembered them. Not necessarily the way they happened.

"I must not fear.
Fear is the mind-killer.
Fear is the little-death that brings total obliteration.
I will face my fear.
I will permit it to pass over me and through me.
And when it has gone past I will turn the inner eye to see its path.
Where the fear has gone there will be nothing......Only I will remain
Dune quote (1984)
