Act of God

Posted: December 14, 2009 in Page 3: Earlier Work

1991
Dimensions: 68 by 49 cm, framed.
Media: Paint on wood, with wood block as nose.

“Act of God” is written across the top of this guy who seems to be delighted with himself. A thumbs up at the upper left would seem to confirm this but a black plane at the bottom right takes you aback. Out of utmost respect to God, the artist says that he did the best he could: the nose was chiseled out of the wood frame (see upper left) and pasted on man’s face.
