Yes, it’s complete and I must say that I’ve come to the conclusion that the only part of this painting that the viewer looks at – at least from the comments on Facebook (mostly male)- is this guy’s dick and its size. Well, that was blunt, wasn’t it? It prompted me to rework his scrotum, which, of course, made me more than a little self-conscious – where previously I had no reservations. Geeze. It is done – but now I think his head is too big! ha!
The Editors at Clamor, the Arts & Literary Journal at the University of Washington Bothell evidently found a compelling interest in the series [/life in the Matrix] and I’m pleased to announce each of my submissions has been selected for publication in the upcoming 2017 edition. Thank you Editors!These pieces challenge the acceptance of propaganda that disposes with the truth by pointing to an imaginary reality and part of series of work designed as [/life in the Matrix].My intention is clear, while the narrative might not be immediately recognizable, my art encourages the viewer to take a long look. In creating these pieces the visual clues I use are often contextually abstract and subjects are placed in improbable circumstances, bordering on the surreal, but based in realism.

blah, blah, blah. I was sketching and my son called to tell me that some physicists had proved that time has its own matter, you know, there are solids and gases and time has crystals. It makes my head hurt. Time crystals. Then I started painting this. It is a work in progress from the series 404 Page Not Found.
