I played with this painting for too long. It started as an exercise in sight-size but my internal chaos generator kept interfering. I even became outraged that the painting required the viewer to stand in a specific and static location for the painting to work. Isn't it weird that the crux of the gag is rooted in that old Italian Renaissance notion of a stationary view point? Weird in that it is supposed to be a grand moment right? The viewer is empowered. It is all about the individual and now with movable type and the printing press we are in charge of our own opinion because the bible can be carried around by anyone and we can read it for ourselves and we aren't being told what the bible says by some yahoo at a pulpit. Power to the people, as long as you stand exactly on that spot I've marked on the floor.
I don't want to make paintings like that.
