About The Artwork

In a radical departure from his motion-filled, color-movement style, the artist depicts a figure suggesting a lion fish built from origami segments, all in a static paint-by-numbers style. The Art Deco result might also suggest a conch shell to onlookers, and furthermore suggest to them the horrors of as-yet-unperformed genetic experiments that are inevitable as the 21st century progresses. The inescapable truth is that if something can be done, it typically will be done, so we should anticipate the unethical and morally depraved splicing of a chimpanzee with a human being well before climate change renders the planet uninhabitable. As global temperatures increase, the arctic ice cap will melt and release fresh water into the Atlantic, thereby decreasing the salinity of the ocean waters and consequently redirecting the gulf stream from its northerly course southward towards north Africa. This will plunge Europe into a new ice age and restore the Sahara to the lush, green paradise that it was at one time, and that it has been in its regular cycles between humidity and aridity. Tenuously-connected Proustian associations such as these are therefore inevitable while staring at this meditative painting, Q.E.D., and therefore this work would be ill-advised as the focal reflection point for anyone experimenting with mind-altering drugs or abusing prescription pain killers.

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
