ANOTHER NIGHTMARE AND THE OGRE DESTROYS...
...someone once said, 'he who destroys a painting destroys part of humanity...'
someone else asked, 'what should befall he who crushes the soul of the painter?'
The peaceful landscape paintings escape this painter...the lovely garden beds lay fallow.
Nightmares, nocturnal or otherwise must be exorcised by the painter. All the figures seen here may not represent persons living or dead.
This is titled: "Breaking the Ninth (I) - Prequel"
What do we see here? It is a 33" x 20 3/4" acrylic on birch board. There is a giant green ogre and a blue lifeless rag doll holding a paint brush in the right hand, while her left hand is missing.
Her anguised face jagged in pain is seen next to some unfinished paintings. Each painting showing an old street lamp - all lightless. That is it.
The ogre is piercing her right arm and sinking his black finger / claws into her arm.
Her left hand is missing.
She is hanging there nearly moribund clutched in his claws, with a paint brush barely hanging in her hand.
To the right of her are three figures with their hands tied and a distressed, hopeless look on their anguished faces... seen just above the masks covering their mouths.
On the left side of the painting stands the long nose ominously grinning green ogre. An anchor and two ominous black upside down crosses tattooed on his right arm seemingly incongruous with his lime green high heels and tights. Behind him are seven people sporting long black noses and black hearts... showered in amber "beer" pouring out of a large container held behind him with his left hand.
Below them the words, "The nose knows...The nose grows."
...when will the peacelful landscapes paintings return...
...someone once said, "he who destroys a painting, destroys part of humanity"
Then someone asked, "what should befall he who destroys the soul of a painter?"
