Reactor

Reactor

Reactor (2003)

I thought it might be interesting to get a slightly different perspective on my art.

I have to shrink my images down some to fit them on the blog. When possible, I link the image to a larger resolution copy placed on my web site. But my images are created in a much larger size than shown either on this blog or on my site. In fact, any of my images created since 2003 can be blown up to poster size. Consequently, there are many textures and nuances of any given image that cannot be seen on the computer screen.

To give you just a hint of what's not being seen, I'd like to show some images in more detail over the next few days.

Here is a thumbnail of today's image with a section highlighted:

And here's a blow-up detail of the selected section:

Now, try to imagine this process going on everywhere...

Red indicates the extent of the radiation cloud on April 27th, 1986, just after the accident in Chernobyl. Blue indicates its almost worldwide distribution until the 6th of May.

Magnum opus magnified becomes a magnum, just as its dream paradise becomes paradise if you pull the trigger on that magnum, and a thousand virgins descend, fangs ready, to devour your soul for all eternity. Where did the rocking chair go,if not into the chair, where all evildoers get fried, especially if they're mentally challenged [or is that part of the frame challenged because framed apart?] Meanwhile one of the pieces goes missing, just another metal jacket enlarged into a mental racket, while the mean averages its fraction of the corps, deployed along a line that borders alingnments of the imaginary, marginal zone.

I love the word play and the associative leaps in your poem.
