Digital photomontage, printed directly to industrial polycarbonate and mounted in custom artist's light box frame.
The Maledictions series is inspired by William S. Burroughs and his use of the cut-up technique for magical purposes. The pieces are official portraits of world leaders cut up and spliced together with images of violence, riots, war atrocities, etc... with the magical intention of shaming them and diminishing their power. You can read more about the Maledictions here: http://entropyandchaos.com/maledictions.html
The light box is made of wood and veneered with pure Lead (Pb). The internal light source is high powered LEDs with an internal supply that is compatible with International voltages of 110-240VAC. Power draw would be no more than 60w maximum under any circumstance. Please be aware that the presence of lead not only makes the piece quite heavy, but also introduces the potential hazards of lead poisoning and environmental contamination if not handled with care. It is recommended that protective gloves be worn while handling the piece and that hands be washed after coming into contact with the frame. Due to the nature of this metal, it should be expected that the patina may change according to its environment. Deformations in the thin veneer are incidental and intentional enhancements to the piece.
