Deuce (2010) 180cm x 140cm
oil & spray paint on canvas
Duece is a painting of the Cocoon nebula system, the death of a star, giving birth to new life. In the painting a giant sun gives birth to a new star, a modern more technological star making references to Darwin and evolution as progress and anologous to man's continual persuit for perfection.
Rafa Nadal serving into the bottom left corner makes reference to the pedestal we put our stars on, something that rivals the anormity of what's going above our heads.
