self-portrait in the spider blizzard (suck me semiramis)

this was done on day 2 of the Feb. 13 blizzard in boston in which 2+ feet of snow shut down the city. done on a flat gessoed hardboard, 12"x12". had completed a smaller piece the day before, was in the zone and completed this one the second day, trapped inside with mas spliffs and vinyl spinning.. its shinier/ colors pop a little more in person but this is pretty close.

Seems it's always an excorcism of the dark side. How to portray the struggle with the beast within without glorifying the mud we are caught and bound in.

Take a look at my photos on this Hygienic page. I'd appreciate your critique.

many thanks for checking out my work Bruce! great quote -  art is surely my conduit for excising the darkness (and conversely, espousing the light) of life, the purest way to express those abstract notions that can't quite be expressed with words...

such demonic energy in this piece. expresses something deep & dark within. "There is something within me that is trying to come out," -Baudelaire
