54" height, I forget the width.
I very rarely do this, but I am including a brief synopsis on the two:
Division: Part 1
The figure in Division features that of a double headed cow. One of the heads peers down at its hands that are clutching a knife fashioned from bone. The other head appears to be distracted by a presence jutting from the right. One being unified with a naive half struggles with the reality of forced disassociation while still being physically attached to his brother, so he contemplates a violent separation from him. However, the two heads share the same body, and attempting to divide himself from the twin would undoubtedly kill him.
The longing for immediate psychological separation and physical disassociation from oneself and shared dimension marks a transition from the abandonment series. Following the traumatic events perceived in the past such as in paintings like "The Medallion" and "The Mountain," the animal is now contending with the erupting aftermath of flashbacks and terror, thoughts he can not separate from, as they are a part of him, and will remain that way unless he chooses to cut into his own flesh as a means of escape. Either he may die by his own hand, or he will learn to mentally divide his thoughts from that of the frightened animal inside of him, and in the literal case of "Division: Part 1," his conscious twin head.
The presence that once inhabited "The Medallion" and "The Mountain" and resulted in the fear inflicted upon the animals of "The Aquarium" and "The Mountain: The Baby Calf," has now evolved into a more aggressive, multidimensional image, further erasing and warping reality. The looming doorway now takes on a sharp, blade-like appearance, and further bends and interferes with the dimension of the animals. It has grown to be more of a threat than it posed in the past, and almost encourages the double headed cow to divide himself.
Division Part 2:
The corpse of a deer is fixed in the same space of that of the double headed cow. Above the deer, the lancing presence resides dangerously close to his body. The top of the deer's skull has been cleanly sliced and separated, an ear has been removed, and he bears two gaping neck wounds, also appearing to be clean cuts in nature. He has entered a state of decomposition, and the presence remains menacingly above him.
The deer has succumbed to the pressure of the presence, each wound representing a futile attempt to cut out and abandon the daunting essence of his prior experiences. His origin is unknown. He is one of many victims who crumbled beneath their trauma.
The two paintings do not share the same space within Division because the set is "separated."
Division and Euthanasia both are a part of this fall's series, "Mass Extinction of Horn Lake" as the region and animals that reside there begin to implode in upon themselves due to the power of the multidimensional presence.
