What is your first thought when looking at this?
We humans are a strange lot. And we here at Burning City Studios believe we are quite a beautiful lot; including all our indiscretions.
You may see a flayed man, the skin of his head removed and laid out.
We see a map, an external representation of an internal world full of more in every individual than anyone, including the person in question, will ever comprehend.
We see beauty; the Magnificent Human Race!
“Leave no stone unturned or unexamined!”
This piece is kind of a prototype for future work involving many people, done as portraits; as a new way of seeing the thing that we call a human.
