Brushing the Cobwebs Off

Another older painting from maybe 2004 ? Still 48" X 58".

Mark Warren "Et In Arcadia" oil on linen

Poussin "Et In Arcadia"

This title translates roughly as "And I [= death] too (am) in Arcadia"  Meaning death is everywhere even in the most Utopian place. In my painting the boys are attempting to use science and religion (entrails reading) to find a way out of the curse of death. I think death is amused. Note my self-portrait behind death's ass.
