From The Desk Of Devendra Banhart: Ed Loftus
Banhart: I first saw Ed Loftus' work at the Berkeley Art Museum; it had been recently acquired, and I could not believe what I was seeing: graphite on paper? I still don't understand - But even more than the incredibly difficult (to me) materials, and masterful technique, I always find what he chooses to draw so calming, meditative, comforting and deeply nostalgic in such a clean and quiet way. Jeeze, I'm a fan and wanted to share his work with ya.
