About The Artwork

A conflicted typographic glyph punctuates the air above Androcles as he gambles, prompting viewers to interrogate the scene: Is the subject a mouse or a man for risking life and limb to play (for keeps!) with the king of the jungle? Does he not really know (with a large feline foe) all due process is absent, and winner-take-all is the victor's allotment? Pick a card, roll a die, count to three (come now, see): With no ground beneath them, the only peaceable kingdom seems one in the sky, with past mortal coils out of sight/out of mind.

Thomas Brodhead overturns the accepted notion of art for art's sake by creating works in which the accompanying texts—epigrams of varying lengths—are integral to experiencing the Gesamtkunstwerk. With a style somewhere along the overlooked axis connecting Jackson Pollock and Norman Rockwell, Brodhead prefers a strong narrative element in art that elicits a double-take by the viewer. Tableau de Perplexite is his prime directive in the production of large-scale works of abstraction and whimsy. IMPORTANT: Every painting has a correlative text ("epigram") that should be read to experience the artwork as whole. See the painting and its epigram at
