Hmm, yes. Art-Moderne indeed.

This composition evokes a sense of the post-vintage sublime yet challenges the viewer to embrace rigorous, forward thinking allusions of contemporary social commentary. In short, this piece is tragic yet benign in its statement about conventional assumptions, denying...wait a minute. I gotta look at it again.

Never mind. I lost it.

I call this one - The Sub Frame

71 CB450 - Bought off a friend as cheap as chips, she is rusty as hell though. Nothing like a good sandblast and a dip into acid wouldn't fix.

Nothing beats sitting on the eames after a good days work on the bike.

This is pretty much all I got with the sale, hence the cheap as chips remark.

Eric,
You are so full of it! Tis composition clearly illustrates the issue of "Man's inhumanity to man". The initial condition of the hubs obviously is in reference to the human condition. This travesty was perpetrated by the previous owner, just as previous generations have placed the down trodden in the state they are in. The superficial polishing shows nothing except a shiny exterior with a disk bolted on. Where is the support for the poor hubs, the spokes and the rim?

Where is your insight and empathy for mankind?

Your pal,
Ken

In that last composition, the perfectly polished hub represents the pure essence of the human spirit: compassion, wisdom and forgiveness. Our essential "Buddha nature", if you will. It's appropriate that the hub shines like Truth itself!

The rim stands for the delusions and obscurations that envelop our true nature and block us from awareness. Ego, narcissism, our oversized sense of ourselves. How perfect that the rim is rendered in black!

Excellent compositions, Spiderman. The depth of meaning in your work is a joy to behold.

can you paint the tank to match my couch and drapes?

Texy,
I think the beer and "other" stains on your couch and drapes would be difficult to capture in any other medium. There may be a possible exception made for hamburger grease and bong water. You would need to check with the "artiste" for that.
