Chainsaw Suicide, oil on panel, 2018-2019. As with many other works in the series, this image depicts the psychological destruction and disorientation of confronting horrific damage to a human body. In this instance, it draws on the most grisly manner of suicide I’d encountered: a man had severed his own neck with a chainsaw. So shameful that we should become inured to the triumphs of death with no sense its toll.
