Description The original has sold, but prints are available here. You can find my available originals, learn about my artistic process, and more, at my website: rudypavlina.comThank you for looking. Please tell your friends about me!Many of my autoanimated beings experience some degree of cephalic warping. After all, their heads are usually constructed of wood. Certain woods, in certain conditions, can be highly susceptible to warping. In this case, the relic is attempting to straighten out his own head. Failure to straighten out his head could result in difficulty eating, or restricted field of vision.
Rudy Pavlina, Hot Springs Member Since January 2010 Artist Statement Please visit my new website to view my newest available artwork, learn about my artistic process, read my blog, and more!
I have no formal training as an artist. I admire the works of Dali, Max Ernst, Dorothea Tanning, Giorgio De Chirico, and Rene Magritte, among others. Usually, I paint it first; then think about what it all means to me. I think my current fascination with creation and re-birth is somehow connected to an increasing awareness of my own mortality. African masks interest me, and their beautiful/grotesque features often appear in my paintings. My work is usually humorous, sometimes sad, and sometimes both. Thank you for your interest.
