You got me hotter than Georgia asphalt.



David Lynch's Rat Meat Bird.

I recall him discussing the roast beef, leaving it in the yard to rot and for life (maggots) to grow in it (I think a squirrel stole a chunk at one point?) before cementing it into the artwork itself. I think the dead mouse came from the mother-in-law's house? I don't recall. You DO see the dead mouse, don't you?

More importantly, where would I hang it in my house?

On the front door to keep un-announced callers at bay.

That is awesome.

But I'd be afraid someone would peel the mouse off and run away with it. And then I'd be sad.

wow..that is icky

Ellen Aim said...

You know...it truly is. I seriously don't think I'd want to look at it on a daily basis! Maybe when my house is so big that there are parts of my house I don't see on a daily basis!

I think green is totally the wrong color for the border of this work.

Ellen Aim said...

Lol! I know, right? I'm thinking "burnt sienna" to really offset the meat stain.

That is pretty close to the sickest thing I've ever seen.

Ellen Aim said...

CSJ: lol! I can't imagine seeing it in person.

JGo: And that is why I love the man.

Please reassure me.

I *honestly* see an open vagina, no one else has mentioned it and I'm a bit worried that I'm turning into Giger or something.

It could do with a hot bath and plenty of soap too btw.

Ellen Aim said...

Dear lord, my friend, what sorts of vaginas have you been seeing? Just kidding, I do see where you get that. It's just it's awfully...wiiiide.

Maybe it's an outraged vagina. (in need of a bath, yes).

I'm just glad I don't see teeth too - vagina dentata!

David Lynch sits there with his buttoned up white shirts, looking like a slightly awkward aspergers sufferer ~ but you'd never think looking at him and his quiff that wacky shit like this is going on like this inside his head.

Looking at him, without knowing what some of his films can be like, I could quite well imagine him being a model train fanatic. Making miniature trees, stations with microscopic passengers, cattle in fields etc.

Still, if making meaty looking 'badger' paintings whets his whistle and it keeps him off the streets and away from trouble, then that's OK.

Bath, soap and maybe a douche too.

*yikes*

Well, NOW I see a vagina. This is really quite unfortunate.

Ellen Aim said...

Yes, it actually manages to be atrocious on multiple levels, doesn't it?
