Paintings > Surface to Air: 2002

Somewhere back in my childhood, my father brought home a sheaf of images from a military contractor. These pictures provoked a deep sense of mystery in me. Rockets shooting from the sea, a submarine held hostage by ice at the top of the world. After long years, less than archival storage (note the "stain" painted into "Skate"), I rediscovered and painted these remarkably beautiful pictures of apocalyptic machines.
