multi-media collaborative painting and sculpture installation and performance
2014 (detail)

It’s a long way back to Goya, by way of certain representations.

It’s Kienholz (The State Hospital and The Ozymandias Parade), J. Lee Thompson (The Evil That Men Do), and the witch trials of a bygone epoch, in a storefront on Broadway.

And certain works of Harold Pinter (One for the Road, The New World Order).
