Laugh or Cry

Both a love letter and a “Fuck you!” to painting.

Necklace, bundle of dried glue sticks, paintballs, nails, plastic, paper, stylus, wires, slice of lemon, map, Montecristo cigars, mother of pearl shell, candles, money, coffee, wires, house paint, acrylic and oil on canvas (60x40cm).

A face composed of discarded items, so emotional and primitively assembled that it is hard to tell if its expression is overwhelming joy or crippling sorrow. Is it laughing or crying?
