There's an old Turkish proverb: "like a butterfly on a donkey's dick" used to express the disdain of two objects which just don't go together or match.... If the proverb is taken literally and further illustrated by Aurel Schmidt, one might just think the two are a match made in heaven! Aurel's intricately drawn works merge flora, insects, beers, genitalia, condoms, cigarettes etc into delicately composed works. The individual components of the compositions are themselves traces and elements from a downtown life which seems to consist of endless nights! Artist Aurel Schmidt and poet Franz Wrights collaborative book Reveries Of A Life Mask is now available. The 68-page publication has been produced in a limited run of 1,000 by Morel Books.
