Laceration. 2020. Pigment, acrylic and wax on canvas. 72 x 48 inches

Rotting flesh is the ultimate representation of existential fear in man – the incessant desire for life in full knowledge of its futility. Does this mean that desire is in itself futile? ‘Laceration’ is a part of an ongoing series titled ‘Flesh’ through which I try to evoke remembrances of violence, agony and trauma.
