STILL LIFE

SHORT LIST

Statement

MEAT MAN

The haloes of light seen in Buddhist images are said to be a light of wisdom that destroys the worldly desires of the populace. Rolling tires are the cornerstone of capitalism, and the desire driven on these tires has become revered and reified. That emptiness, truth, or a reality incorporating both of these, is the empty abyss we see.
