The New York Times Paints a Portrait of Blind Denton Artist John Bramblitt
|"Self Portrait Trio" by John Bramblitt|
Which is why this morning's New York Times features a lengthy piece on Bramblitt (accompanied by a photo by frequent Dallas Observer contributor Brandon Thibodeaux) in which the painter says, "It wasn't until I lost my sight that I became brave enough to fail. Even if the paintings didn't look good, I didn't have to see them." Bramblitt expounds upon his process in the introduction to his latest series of works, "Synesthesia: Art of the Senses."
