ANGER

Oil on Canvas                 1994

48 x 48                                  $7500

I went into therapy again during a bleak period that had resulted in a creative block. My therapist asked me what my anger looked like. I visualized something like an inverted organ pipe between my stomach and my mouth that could spew forth anger.

I made the props for this painting, and hoped that the acrylic tubes filled with colored liquid wouldn’t leak the food- colored liquid all over the still life.

Some of these paintings contain visual puns.  The vase of tulips  stands for "two lips" which is where my anger usually gets expressed.

The creative block was eradicated with this painting and has not happened again since!
