“I paint and sculpt to get a grip on reality… to protect myself.” -Alberto Giacometti

Alberto Giacometti feels like a kindred spirit. His work seems like a familiar friend, it soothes the outcast in me. Giacometti’s work often seems restless, uncertain, and then all at once, serene. I admire the consistency of his messy, itchy quality across all mediums. Below are several drawings, sculptures, and painting that I have scavenged. Enjoy!

-Alberto Giacometti
