[Louise Was An Urbanite, She Preferred The Gut-thrilling Sound Of An Emergency Siren Slicing Through The Night To The Noise Of Country Birds At Dawn. Pub Brawls, Rackety Roadworks, Mugged Tourists, The Badlands On A Saturday Night - They All Made Sense, They Were All Part Of The Huge, Dirty, Torn Social Fabric. There Was A War Raging Out There In The City And She Was Part Of The Fight, But The Countryside Unsettled Her Because She Didn't Know Who The Enemy Was. She Had Always Preferred North And South To Wuthering Heights. All That Demented Running Around The Moors, Identifying Yourself With The Scenery, Not A Good Role Model For A Woman.]

Gabby Bess Quotes

"If originality is a "sense of novelty and freshness" then, in the act of constructing ourselves, originality is not the goal. We construct a self-portrait, relying on existing objects – books, quotes from authors and artists, images, art – that we are more than happy to show off to others for them to use as masturbation material or for the material by which they align themselves. This is the new action painting – the curational archive. The referential self portrait. The portrait of any other artist could be readily used to explain yourself, just reblog it and caption it with "same." The past consistently becomes the present, not through linear time, but through the constant reconstruction and relabeling of it."
