Like Herod

Like Herod

This was the second painting in the Project Mogwai series, completed in October 2008. Those paying close attention will recognise a repeat of the graffitied face from ‘Stop Coming To My House‘. The inspiration for this image came from Gordon Burn’s Fullalove, especially the epigram he uses to set the tone of the novel:

Until the day when, your endurance gone,
in this world for you without arms,
you catch up in yours the first mangy cur you meet,
carry it the time needed for it to love you,
and you it, then throw it away
Samuel Beckett, Molloy
