Bizarre Yugoslavia

They appear like images from some alien planet. Or the creations of some alien race that has landed and then abandoned earth. Like the statues on Easter Island, there is a mystery about them. Why were they built? They are letters of a lost language. Metaphors in a forgotten history. And just plain bizarre.

I like the mix of painting and collage. The figures almost seem to be dissolving into the background wallpaper. Images seeping into images. Like layers of metaphors. (Maybe not metaphors.) But like cells of an animation, each one contributing but separate from the whole. (Maybe I should go back to metaphor. This is usually where I go back, erase everything and start over.)
