road kill

I dragged this mud guard from a large interstate transport truck and the squashed witch's hat found on the side of the highway home to my studio for another still life.

The process of mixing colours and painting these found objects produces a disassociated state which is a pain control technique along with the help of opiates and valium. So the colours are mixed and painted in an unconscious way. The forces of these colours chosen as a process which integrates my physical body also forces the compositional elements of the still life; yet again as absolute deviation.
