Oh God

Acrylic paint, varnish, marker pen, surveyor’s paint, mud, japanese endpapers on board. (2009)

Oh God is another work in the series of paintings featuring Japanese endpapers. Once again, the beautiful surface has been interrupted and decimated by the additions made to it. A lone solitary figure regards the decimation with disdain. Or is it astonishment? The work calls into question the notions of interruption, as to who is doing the interrupting, and to what purpose. Who defines what is beautiful? Is there awe in dirt? Where do concepts of Emergence lead us? How do we deal with the inevitable conflict?
