"Avenge, Angel, Avenge."

September 30th, 2011.

Public Debut at "Exhibit A," 2011.

Acrylic, 16" x 20"


When I started "Avenge, Angel, Avenge," I was feeling very frustrated and somewhat vengeful.  I wanted something that looked somewhat violent and exciting, and I knew that I wanted something with a red background.

I ended up creating a grafitti-like, Keith Haring-esque "angel" figure holding a bloody knife with a background that looks, very simplistically, like the fires of the underworld.

I like to imagine that the angel sneaked out of Heaven and went downstairs to hunt down some demons and settle a score.

There was some special texturing used in the "blood" on the angel's knife to make it appear a bit "clotted" and a little shinier than the rest of the painting.
