Deterioration Of Mind Over Matter
Painting - Acrylic On Canvas
One painting, entitled The Deterioration Of Mind Over Matter is a frightening picture of a decomposing human scull firmly ensconed on some devilish birdcage in which the raw gore of mans physical being lies lifeless at the base. The parting flesh of the scull is secured by a tromp-loeil safety pin. This is truly an image that could have been utilized in the former issues of Tales From The Crypt, in fact it brings to mind in its own scary way the imaginations of Edgar Allan Poe. The poem, The Conqueror Worm comes to mind immediately:
But see, amid the mimic rout
A crawling shape intrude!
A blood-red thing that writhes from out
The scenic solitude!
It writhes! - it writhes! - with mortal pangs
The mimes become its food,
And the angels sob at vermin fangs
In human gore imbued.
