Osama bin Laden dislikes kelloggs frosted mini wheats

The gloriously unambitious world of John Patrick McKenzie, who doesn't care that he's a rising star in the visual arts. And who, as it happens, is autistic.

McKenzie used to sit next to a client at Creativity Explored who spent most of his days wandering up and down 16th Street, eating cigarette butts. When the man died of a heart attack, McKenzie mourned his death and created this piece on an asymmetrical block of wood, which stands in Michael McGinnis' study.

They are full of holy farewells

They are full of holy they will live another life

They are fully of holy patients

They are fully of holy you cannot win them

They are fully of holy you cannot catch them

They are fully of holy you cannot see them

They are fully of holy you cannot hear them

They are fully of holy you cannot touch them

Considering who made it, it could be looked at as a self-portrait.
