The Lobby

Flesh and meat are life.
If I paint red meat as I paint bodies it is just because I find it very beautiful. I don't think anyone has ever really understood that.
Ham, pigs, tongues, sides, of beef seen in the butcher's window, all that death, I find it very beautiful.
And it's all for sale - how unbelievably surrealistic.
