"Adoration of Spanish Moss and Pepperoni Flowers With Alice Feeders" is a mutli-narrative piece abundant with symbolisms,comparisons between humans and flora, and our appreciation for the complexities of nature. Carl's initial inspiration for this work was the hair of a beautiful woman at his office who wore it in a clip one day. It moved and flowed like undersea flora.
We auto drew this piece while listening to "Alice's Restaurant" by Arlo Guthrie.
(Below are pics of the beginning stages.)
"A Universal Yogurt And Dipper Kays Arbiter For Colossus' Precausal Narcissism /Or Johnny Lamb Dots Two" is a narrative about how we are all just flowers and atoms in the universe, as well as thoughts on predeterminism, ego, sense of self, and societal and self judgement. (Beginning stages below)
"Ursa Minor Cathartic Foreskin Pizza" is about our pizza and the flora within all our bodies. (Pizza is a symbolic reference to our collaboration; the fusion of 2 artists, creating as one, becoming a completely new 3rd entity.)

The key to many of our narrative works is in that we explore land, air, sea, space, and time all intertwined with efforts to visualize that which is both seen and resides between things unseen beyond the doors of perception. Miles Davis said his music was about the time and space between musical notes.
There are moments of clarity, with a shocking sense of ones tiny place in the universe and in time. The presence of flesh is merely and only just that.... presence.
