Andrew Webb


Andrew Webb, many scholars hold, is a myth, an apparition haunting the gloaming of artistic minds. His art--pure, holy, yet disturbing in its high-pitchedness--is obscured by the legends surrounding his person. Who is Andrew Webb? Is he truly kith and kin with the Yeti, Chupacabra and the Mothman of modern legend? Or his a real, breathing person, residing in the town of Fort Collins, CO? But what is the nature of the fabled "Fort Collins"? Is it the Read more on Last.fm
Andrew Webb, many scholars hold, is a myth, an apparition haunting the gloaming of artistic minds. His art--pure, holy, yet disturbing in its high-pitchedness--is obscured by the legends surrounding his person. Who is Andrew Webb? Is he truly kith and kin with the Yeti, Chupacabra and the Mothman of modern legend? Or his a real, breathing person, residing in the town of Fort Collins, CO? But what is the nature of the fabled "Fort Collins"? Is it the mythical dwelling of mermaids and mermen ala the lost city of Atlantis? Can Andrew Webb really breath underwater? More importantly, can he fly? Are the legends true? What of the origins of this legend? As previously stated, he seems to be the conglomorated vision of various artists--an idea imagined into existence, yet continuously receding back into the unknown. What artists have given birth to this vision? Forms of the "Webb Myth" can be found as early as the Biblical book of Genesis.

Was the man Jacob wrestled with not an angel, not YHWH (as theologians have long held) but actually an early form of The Webb Man? Much later versions of The Webb Man have appeared in the works of Flannery O'Connor (most notably in Wise Blood as the character Enoch Emery) and in the poetry of TS Eliot (i.e. Apneck Sweeney and Alfred J. Prufrock). The Webb Man makes various appearances in Dylan's sprawling ballad "Desolation Row" (most vividly portrayed as Ezra Pound and TS Eliot fighting in the captain's tower.) We may never get to the bottom of the myth surrounding Andrew Webb.

Most probably, he will forever be regarded as a hollow and faint prescence impending upon the minds and souls of artists the world over. That he exists in some form is indisputable. Whether he exists in reality or merely as the spirit that binds all artists remains to be seen. Read more on Last.fm.
