Shrine to the Voudou God of trying to paint good

Spending several years making small canvases from politicians to page 3 girls and still lifes, a period of depression had me really struggle to break through with anything using paint. I used the wrong colours, the wrong textures, the wrong subject matter, accumulating masses of reworked canvases. My interest in magick combined with the failure of being a painter inspired me to show the canvases en-masse complete with dripping candles, wax skulls, magick potions and incense, as if to invoke a better sense of being with my work.
