Born out of a need to deride the senseless, unmitigated greed of the financial world, this painting depicts our eventual future if we don't start practicing sustainability. Hidden symbols abound in my work: The city on the skull is New York, specifically, Wall Street; the splatters form a crown; the tentacles in the front are a dollar sign; behind the circumpunct in the skull there are fire embers and they are almost out. Keep looking. You'll always find new details in my work!
