Lou Hirshman

“The Insomniac” – 1980

Click on image for an enlargement.

A sleepless sufferer with all manner of sundries on the shelf in the unsuccessful search for slumber. Hirshman, who made it a point of pride to never take such off-the-shelf aids, parodied those sleepless friends that did.

This piece is another example of art within art, characteristic of some of Hirshman’s work, usually in the form of wall paintings. In this case, it is actually another assemblage, portraying fish jumping over a plastic baby with an American flag.

    Hmm it seems like your blog ate my first comment (it was extremely long) so
    I guess I’ll just sum it up what I had written and say, I’m thoroughly enjoying your blog.
    I too am an aspiring blog blogger but I’m still new to the whole thing.
    Do you have any tips and hints for novice blog writers?

    I’d genuinely appreciate it.

    that’s both educative and interesting, and let me tell you,
    you’ve hit the nail on the head. The problem is an issue
    that too few folks are speaking intelligently about.
    Now i’m very happy that I found this in my hunt for something regarding this.
