Dan May: Kindred 2019


Artist Statement
Though the content of these pieces may appear somewhat lighthearted in direction, as is my customary approach, the underlying intent is a bit darker. Underneath the baroque embellishments, and comic approach, the work reeks like a rotting corpse filled with cankerous revolt. It’s gleeful garnish on road kill, a machete beneath a pink petticoat, a psycho in a confirmation dress. The messages are shards of broken glass, which act as a vent on a parasitic volcanic cone. Otherwise it’s just good-natured fun.
