Evil

splendid used of muted colours that somehow make the viwer feel as if they are looking into a muddy pool and just as they are out of that pool rises an evil image to scare the living daylights out of you.

I was watching "Bennys Video" by austrian movie director Michael Haneke and it's about this young boy who kills a girl and I was thinking 'are people born evil and bad?' or are we coloured by our environment and life to be evil and bad? That is what my new painting's all about.

mia>>>i think a little of both is true. certainly we all are born with a dark side but some seem to love their dark side more than others.

I wonder at what point in life you choose to love or hate your own dar side? As a child? Can you make that decision as a child?

(love the new pic by the way).

i guess it depends on what we mean by dark.
i certainly have a dark side but i express it with words. like you i 'get it out'.
what makes me worry is when people, be they children or adults,cannot find a suitable vehicle for 'getting it out' with either images or words or sounds but choose random acts of violence on others.
your art certainly does that and because i can identify with it is why i like it.
i am not sure if as a child you can make that choice. i think it more likely that the child would have some sinister psychosis underlying their psyche.

Thanx, (I finally got that shit right.

Yeah, I'm glad I'm getting all that ugly shit out. I don't know what I would do without love and art.
