well, this is my final painting before the BMI 'show'. for my colleagues from work, this little beauty is painted on the unloved generic landscape print that was saved by 'nigel' from death by binning. id not worked on canvas for the last 2 years as it had too much 'give' for my techniques. however, it was a joy not to be working on heavy MDF as this has its own pain in arse-ness. ive continued my matahog theme in this image and have included a couple of onlookers...

Matahogs and Matahoglets are beasts who produce the elixir or ‘milk of the multi-verse’. The elixir they produce is coveted across the universe for its quantum inter-dimensional effects on the user. it enables Cathexis ID’s and other creatures to fold space and travel through wormholes to predestinations of safety or discovery. Matahogs and their young are deeply soulful and peaceful creatures making deep existential considerations to what is to be a sentient being. They free
The relationship between Matahogs and the Cathexis ID is completely symbiotic. Matahogs provide the greatest and safest elixir to enable the Cathexis ID and all other creatures to fold space and travel inter-dimensionally through space time wormholes. In return Cathexis ID’s cherish their Matahogs and worship their ability to produce the elixir through the milking of their psychedelic teets: ‘oh hog elixir of warp and life, cut through space and time like a thanatos knife, ta
