"My Son Will Show You The Way"



This piece was painted for a large group show at the San Jose Museum of Art entitled "We Are Family". http://www.sjmusart.org/content/exhibitions/past/exhibition_info.phtml?itemID=308

The inspiration for the piece came from a horror flick entitled "The Hills Have Eyes" that I accidentally watched one night. It contained a rather bizarre desert mutant rape scene in a mobile home. Romantic, I know.

It is acrylic on a 22"x28" stretched canvas. It was originally custom framed by my good buddy Nathan Segovia, a bay area creative type who was kind enough to put some energy into the project.
