This brief video just enchanted me. The man, the story, the art! I find myself deeply attracted to this work. I have always loved lists, catalogues, field guides of any kind, anything that involves visual discernment. Blackstock’s work takes it to a whole new level. Especially when one considers the breadth of it! WWII aircraft, sure. Barns, ok. But trowels? Artichokes? Carrots? Clearly, an utter fascination with the world and all things in it.
Watch this, please. It will make you smile.
