World's Forgotten Boy

Here's one of mine. Enough of these old guys.

Acrylic on masonite, 2005, 24" x 24". Title is ripped off from an Iggy Pop lyric ("Search & Destroy" from Raw Power). There is not much relationship between the painting & the song. I just liked the words. Image is your basic post-apocalyptic portrait of disaffected youth/something extremely ancient & primeval. Sort of like Dorian Gray at both ends of the spectrum. Does that make any sense? No. Well, OK...
