In 2004, Charles Morris and writer Joseph
Lennon had dinner with the late Norman Mailer in Provincetown, MA. Morris asked Mr. Mailer if he would like to collaborate on a portait that would reflect multiple facets of the author, his life, and his work.
To accompany his portrait, Mailer selected 18 images from Morris's books of small paintings and drawings. The half life-sized portrait, done in pencil, is embedded in a mirror shaped like a life-sized bust of Mr. Mailer. In this way, when a viewer looks in the mirror, Mailer's face takes the place of the viewer's face.
Morris is interested in doing similar portrait collaborations as commissioned works of art.
