in original and often humorous ways, offering insights into the personalities

small Ivy League university that remains nameless," writes the

artist. "His career in the visual arts has developed from beginnings

that are best left unprinted. In deference to his wishes, we leave

them unprinted here. Farnsworth’s art falls into the general category

of Sub-realism, a term that the artist claims to have invented, which

is a branch of neo-post-modern art that exploits the absurd underpinnings

of reality. But then what’s reality?"
