An account of fine art work incorporating trickster elements. This book includes an index corresponding to the 12 prints,12 oil paintings, 4 acrylic ink drawings and 4 charcoal drawings. It was produced with art compiled roughly over 10 years.The subtitle is enduring chronic pain, unrequited love, youthful folly, plus it includes other tragic comedies, etc...
Trickster figures have a tendency of finding their way into my compositions. I channel pathos and subconscious archetypes/symbols resurrecting scenarios that haunt or rejoice the human spirit through triumph or agony. This book was produced with art compiled roughly over 10 years enduring chronic pain, unrequited love, youthful folly, including other tragic comedies, etc...It is truly a paradox of overly expressive pathos-filled cackling sentiments.
