Gallery of the Damned
Faces and Scenes from Hell
by William Max Miller

In the autumn of 1999, I tried a medication called Remeron for approximately six weeks. Hypnogogic visions (dreamlike
experiences which occur on the boundary between wakefulness and sleep) are an occasional side effect of this medication,
and they became disturbingly frequent & vivid for me. While half-awake in bed, drifting softly toward sleep,  startling images
of grotesque, distorted human faces would suddenly flash through my imagination like an endless nocturnal procession of lost
souls. They inhabited a dark, inner  landscape dominated by labyrinthine, monolithic cities, carved in stone  as if by a
demented architect during some convulsive fever delirium. This nightly horror film, flickering like an infernal bale-fire
behind my closed eye-lids, provided a source of great wonder for me, but finally became alarming.  I discontinued
the medication and the hypnogogic visions faded and finally stopped.  But the faces and scenes I saw remain etched upon
my memory forever, like acid scars from a demonic lithographer left upon neuronal copper plates and synaptic printer's
stones, and sometimes rise up again to stalk me through the anxious corridors of nightmare.  The following portraits and
landscapes are offered here as a kind of exorcism of these strange beings and places, who were actually the dark heralds
of a major depressive episode that overwhelmed me from January until June of the year 2000.
