Restoring the glamour, nostalgia and magic of animals

                                        
                               

I am incompetent so in order to create work I have to solve problems in an original way because the conservative solution is always beyond my capacity. This makes the work exciting, like a retard screaming, and its always on the edge of disaster between forming and falling apart. I am still trying to say what I want to say and only half getting it out between spasms . I hope you find the results interesting and sometimes, beautiful. In these paintings I wanted to create a beautiful and poisonous landscape, and challenge my ability to deal with perspective. The result in a budding half formed amorphous monoculture of opium poppies, Erotic landscapes where the original inhabitants of the prairie struggle to survive, despite impending disaster from giant combine harvester and atomic skies. I guess its all of us and our lives and the way we keep living though we cant get what we need and everything around us poisons us, but we still go
ON.
