How strange to read of his death today. He was always a bit of an art star enigma to me. I was equally impressed/perplexed by his unique art stardom. So elusive and had a chosen lifestyle completely in contrast to the art world that supported him. Was it his disinterest in the art world that made his work so interesting? He obviously lived on the edge. And for some reason I feel less sympathetic when I hear of death via drug over-dose (who really is to blame here?), especially when kids are involved or in this case left behind. It will be interesting to learn the details of his life and work as they continue to unfold.
