Review by: Ray Hecht on April 6, 2015 :
Outskirts by Nir Levie is a beautiful work of art. The sketchy stylings with a monocolor of red create a surreal atmosphere that perfectly suits the narrative. Nature is weird, something off, as we are meant to question this setting...

The story introduces Ben, an everyman architect, and then juxtaposes him against a contrasting 'duplicator' - one punk rocker. The mysteries of the city are expounded upon, the *zone*, and the two wax philosophical about just what is going on in this place.

“No mental phenomenon is more characteristic of the big city than indifference," is said, and then that bounces off to a host of counterpoints. Examples abound. Point is, one thinks, question the cityscape.

I know not if all the mysteries are to be resolved, if there's something not to be gotten, but I think there is much within this piece that does not directly need be said. It is to be read, and reread again, filling in the blanks with our own perspective,

I very much look forward to reading and observing more art more from Mr. Levie.
