Influenced by Spaghetti Westerns and inspired by Joseph Campbell, this series tells the story of an unnamed Vaquero and his long, solitary, way round the monomyth’s endless trail. Sometimes it’s just a lonely road, Vaquero.

What started out as a simple homage to Henry Darger, slowly transformed into a personal examination and exploration of his works. Through a close scrutinization of his dreamscape visuals & meandering prose, it is my intent to pay tribute to a lost man and the beauty he left for us to find.

Third in a series of seven collages.
