Caesar, If I Die Tomorrow: A Guatemalan Rhapsody

Caesar, If I Die Tomorrow: A Guatemalan Rhapsody  

D.S. (aka 'The Goddess') Mikell, Artist

(Oil on Stretched Canvas 30"X36") mid 1990's

Made possible through a generous gift of the Brow459 Foundation

Using Gauguin's palette, and Hanna/ Barbera's technique -- the artist blends the possible with the inevitable and adds the need for self defense on this recycled canvas . A faceless Madonna watches over the acne scarred central figure -- who holding an as of yet unpainted item in his poised hands -- while the sin of drink, the fury of natures smoldering volcano, and the very real threat of flying cooking utensils threaten to upset this central American utopia.

The title of the work, so named by the artist, remains a cryptic enigma in our own time.
