Mixed Media - Acrylic And Mixed Xerox Transfer On Paper
In this 1993 work, as always I am feeling my feelings about the world around me. No surprise there. I was trying to find a place of feeling better in the face of the variety of death that exists. Everything dies. We are born to die. I was feeling my variety of feelings relative to modes of death. I never seems to be fased when an insect dies or an insect eats another insect. But, by God, kill a person or have them harmed in any way and I feel insane. I do not like the way I feel when I think of people hurting each other or when I see news or information about brutality. In the midst of those sick feelings about death I find myself looking for something that feels a little better. I can think of a field of skulls and all the pain that came with that choice or I can think about cute little lambs skipping along the landscape, oblivious to the pain around them. In their world, they seem to have fun and more fun and more fun and more fun and then their dead and it's ok in their world. I love everything very much and I find it quite the painful struggle to think of anything happening that is less than joy. None the less, in that face of despaire, I can create joy. Notice how the little cute lambs stand out like a green thumb. No matter how bleak, there is always a silver lineing.
