A Curse Shall Light Upon the Limbs of Men

Title sounds almost biblical, that sort of ancient apocryphal way of saying that seems to reside somewhere between flesh & mind, applicable to either.

Enjoyed this image--although I must say it reminds me a little of the 3 bears of Goldilocks fame--personal reactions. They stand out from the ambiguous smoke-rock-curtain texture. Unique light promethean on a pillar of sorts--the lighter curves look like some sort of ancient grafitti now merged with a wall.

3 screams deafened by the environment.

thanks for this. always enjoy these

Thanks for your thoughts on this. It feels raw, unfinished to me, but then that feels right.

Glad to have you stopping by.

the title, drawn from anthony's dogs of war speech in shakespeare's julius caesar, is very apt for our warring time. the piece also alludes to cerberus, the three-headed dog figure guarding the gates of hell. given our propensity, all of a sudden, to start wars at the drop of a hat, for whatever reason we need at the time, the images are both very close to what we have going on in iraq, where nothing is right, nothing is just, and no solution will be found but more a more hellish existence for everyone. j

you've tapped into some primal terror for me in this one. the shrieking mouths, the TEETH- coming in column,
inevitably; i can HEAR them, and feel the wrath of the shadowy giant in the background, whose bidding they do.

they're in every 3 yr old's closet and they're in the hearts of world leaders, and they scare the shit outta me....
