Check the link for my new painting... This site will not show it as it is defined as a nude.


Why an arts blog bans nudes beggars belief! Knobheads

The Goddess of Good Hope

This Painting is looking to starvation in third world countries and the idea of using insects as a renewable source of protein.

I like playing with clichéd images and adapting these and pushing them a little further. I do believe there is real truth in clichéd images. Here I refer to the skulls in the babies eyes as a metaphor for death.
The Beetle, seen as a worshipped/sacred insect in many cultures. Mainly the Scarab, but here I used the Stag as visually, it to me seems, the most impressive of the beetles, its powerful jaws represent a real ephemeral power.
One of its legs pointing at the Cape of Good Hope represents the theme of the painting, a chance of renewed hope in this insect food ideology.

Good. Now please stop digging.

Thanks for the suggestion and wish, but my art flourished, because I'm part of it and my understanding of politics can not return to the past ("History repeats itself first as tragedy, then as farce"). And I would like to stay in the group. Thank you very much!

May your art flourish Janpoljan and your understanding of politics improve. Might  I suggest it is more likely to do so if you don't leave this group. I have no wish to see you go.

How do I leave this group?
