The Dream of Michael Negrich
There is an other worldly, apocalyptic quality to the confluence of billowing clouds, grain elevators, erupting volcano, moon, flying teacups, seagulls, and the Virgin Mary. In the foreground, the semi-prone figure of Michael Negrich rests alongside a black dog among wild flowers. To the left of these figures,the grassy prairie field opens to reveal an underworld populated by the face of a demon peering at two children playing with a toy farm and vehicles.
In the center of the composition, is a cabin in a boat representing the journey of a domestic life. Along that path, there are coins painted to collect – like you would see in a video game. Atop are symbols of forces and conditions that influence this path. At the bottom center of the painting is a puzzle that needs to be solved by a certain time, and Shaun’s cat consuming some of reoccurring symbols and characters in his language.
