I have rather a back-log of paintings and videos to post, MASS is taking up all my time. This first one is a bit of a departure from my usual style, but I present it in the spirit of aesthetic experimentation none-the-less. Based on ‘The Kiss’ by Rodin, this piece is in three distinct tones, two of silver and one of black. The title and text refer to American Psycho by Brett Easton Ellis. The cold black hole between the indistinct faces of the two lovers echoes the black hole in the mind of Patrick Bateman, where his sexual encounters inevitably result in death.
