Dirty Business


This piece is a combination of materials: oil and acrylic paint, brass plate, steel chain, steel wire, canvas, paper, foam, epoxy resin, adhesive, primer, gesso, and wood. It measures 29" x 44.5", though portions of the wall on which it hangs can be seen within its space. Film geeks may recognize that the painting on the brass plate is a scene from The Godfather, moments before Al Pacino's character, Michael Corleone, kills Sollozzo.
Here is a detail:

Something of a Superman

Here is a recent painting that I doubt anyone would want to hang in his or her living room -- or anywhere else in the house. But I did not paint it as part of an interior design scheme. The portion of prose is a page appropriated from The Fall by Albert Camus.


Something of a Superman, 40" x 36", oil, acrylic primer, gesso, paper, canvas, 2014.
