Big brain : last sigh

Andre Fromont, also anagramatically known as Fernando Mort, is one of my favorite creators of Poladroids.

While this isn't one of his Poladroids, it packs a whallop.

For me, that goldfish's eye is every bit as compelling as Janet Leigh's in Psycho after the knifing.

This unworked photo is the exception for Fromont, who loves to work and rework his Poladroids, photos and other artwork, often inflicting damage until beauty inevitably results.

Why should beauty result from constant damage?

That's one of the Sacred Mysteries of his art for me.
