‘Event Horizon’ 2008.

working from Gericault's "Raft of the Medusa", a painting about eroticism in popular culture.

‘Event Horizon’ is in the large collection of Howard Tullman.

Like changing channels on a TV, or surfing the web, images move like a sliding puzzle, a gridwork of cultural meanings  —  elusive, oblique references, innuendo, erotic symbolism, implications, metaphors, unclear boundaries, non sequiturs, incongruities, romantic ideas.

We swim through a sea of images. Each one carries a message in our subconscious. Attempts to structure thought are largely futile. My brain “has a mind of its own.”
