This Painting Can Kill You

might seem like a pretentious title but it is at least fairly true. More than any piece on the blog, this painting is more effective when viewed in person. It does not translate terrible well to the web. Adding to the problem is that my camera does not seem to like to pick up extremely dark green very well.







This image replicates what it looks like upon a glance at the studio.
The second angle is below.











This is a few of the 3000 pins stuck through the back. It is a little more intimidating in person.
There were held in place by shoving them through cardboard before the canvas. As a result they are fairly sturdy. So if this fell on you, death would be a potential outcome, if a little unlikely. That, though, is part of the point.
