SMOKE SIGNALS  24X20  1989

The vacuum cleaner in this painting came with my studio and was previously involved in a suicide. It was such an odd thing knowing this. It was the equivalent of the genie's bottle. A ghost's vacuum. I attach myself to objects and imbue them with character. The red ashtray was one of these. The Indian on the wall was part of my genocide series. I have always enjoyed this painting. It has a "lightness" of appearance but a very"dark" back story.

    Aw, this was an exceptionally good post. Taking the time and actual effort to create a very good article� but what can I say� I procrastinate a lot and don't manage to get nearly anything done.

    Do you have any video of that? I'd like to find out some additional information.
