The Face of Hiroshima

New small painting in the occasional "Hiroshima" series:

Acrylic on board, 2007, 10" x 8".

It's a kind of misuse of pointillism, here used to depict the atomization of human life, etc. Also reminds me of Gerhard Richter for some reason, the treatment of the paint. I was "inspired" to paint another image in this series (if series it is) by the inclusion of the "Hiroshima: Ground Zero" piece in the Museum on the Seam show, "Bare Life" -- see blog entry below this one. Here is that particular piece:

Acrylic on masonite, 2004, 12" x 9". Currently on display on the second floor of the Museum on the Seam.
