Excoriation

16x20

16×20″ unframed

Painted summer 2013

First off, things aren’t quite as dismal as the title would lead one to believe.
This was intended to have multiple layers and who really knows where or what it was leading to. I was just trying to break free of blue (still my favorite). A fun technique gave this piece all of it’s character and at that point (I thought) the piece was just being started…..But then somone saw it…. and liked it…? ok. So I kept what I had started with minimal manipulation from that point on, just a little bit of dark to add to the depth.

The title is referring to what (to me) looks like stripped off flesh (ohhh pretty) but the word in itself could be translated as any of the following:
abhorrence
abomination
anathema
blasphemy
condemnation
contempt
curse
damnation
denunciation
detestation
hatred
imprecation
loathing
malediction
odium
profanity
swearing
vilification

Not my usual at all, but does inspire some monstrous ideas for future pieces.
