David Lynch, Artist September 10, 2007

The term artist gets thrown around a lot. However, the meaning behind the term and its qualifications are about as subjective as can be. With that said, I can think of no man (or woman) that so much embodies the label as David Lynch. Since I was introduced to him through a friend (via a Twin peaks marathon) in high school, I’ve been enamored by his work. From the seemingly simple (The Straight Story) to the abstract (Inland Empire.)

Triggered by introducing a newcomer to Twin Peaks, my zeal for his work has been reignited. Last night, I once again watched a documentary on Lynch called “Pretty as a Picture” that truly gives an idea of the unique world that he lives in. This led me to search YouTube to see what I could find and to say there were some gems to be found is an understatement. Examples after the jump.
