Artist's Description

This began to look to me like compartments of
hell, with a lot of molten flowing stuff going on.
I thought what a bad experience it would be to
wake up there.

The face is from a photo I took, fifteen years ago at an office picnic, of one of the sculptures at Haines Point in Washington, DC, representing a giant man rising from beneath the ground; his face, an arm, a foot and, I believe, a knee are all of him that is seen above ground. He looks angry, as if he were buried prematurely. I’d be pretty annoyed, myself. This image represents the anger, anguish and confusion of finding oneself in a frightful situation.

For a wider variety of framing and matting options, see this entry in my ImageKind Abstracts gallery.
