"Near the Tannhauser Gate"

Fresh off the easel!
Near the Tannhauser Gate, 14x11, oil on oil primed linen

I will be showing this painting at The Incognito Project Exhibit. Nov 3, 2012, 5-9 pm at the Vann and Young Building, 1731 1st Avenue North Birmingham  AL, along with 25 other new paintings on the theme.

The painting is part of my ongoing exploration of alter egos. Blade Runner fans will recognize the title from the replicant Roy Batty's introspective speech moments before his own death (actor Rutger Hauer).

I've seen things you people wouldn't believe. Attack ships on fire off the shoulder of Orion. I watched C-beams glitter in the dark near the Tannhauser gate. All those moments will be lost in time... like tears in rain... Time to die.

More about the project:

If you'd like to read a commentary of the work in the show, check it out in an article and slideshow by art writer/artist Daniel Maidman, on The Huffington Post, titled The Very Serious Dress-Up Playtime of the Soul!

You may also recognize this model from my painting The Certainty of Youth and the Complexity of Wisdom.
