#743 Final Working, Final Days

43×29″ Acrylic on canvas. The Romantic artists painted ruins because they were… romantic. I migrate toward ruins because I sense we are near the end of human existence.
The Corporate Elite are culling the masses, gathering in those who will become the feudal servants, button pushers, police, army and private guard of the few hundred elite who plan to survive after they wipe out most of the population of the planet. That’s what Fox and AM talk radio are about. Promoting racism, xenophobia, endless wars–all in preparation for global warming, it’s floods, storms, fires, famines and mass migrations to kill off the billions of surplus humans, so they can rule their world of robotic production, without the pretense of democracy or consent of the people.
That’s not science fiction. That’s what they’re doing. That’s what’s happening.

#492 Posthuman City

Lurching this way and that, the hole inside that wants to be filled, wanting and not knowing what, driven and not knowing why or by what. I make art, and strain to set limits to the self-destructive excess.

The only peace, in dreams.
