These images weren’t done as a deliberate series, but are a theme I’ve returned to over a long period. There is a sketch from well over a decade ago in there. Some of these fit more loosely and some quite literally (I will likely edit out a few). I may make a concerted effort to bolster these images and make a series out of them soonish. The attraction I have for this theme is it hits a lot of the my big issues or interests: aliens, death, consciousness, religion, cruelty and injustice, transformation and transcendence, psychedelia, Expressionism, sci-fi (incl. old movies from my childhood), art history (all those crucifixions), pain and suffering, the human condition, imaginary beings and worlds, and the tradition of painting.
