Seventy Four Years of Tears Fall into Silent Space

Acrylic on wood, 2016-2019

As above, so below.

After the 1917 Revolution in Russia, waves of blue blood with over a millennium of vibrant progressive evolution saturated the earth. This orbiting monolith is losing gravity as it releases the tear-falls that accumulated from 74 years of communist oppression and brutality.

The light transforms it into a monumental headstone representing the millions of people that were ravaged and murdered by a system of deception that threatened to ultimately destroy the highest and noblest freedom of self-expression and, thus, the light of humanity.

The light tears are refracted through the feminine nipple prism to regenerate in the enriched soil of the good earth.
