This is the first of a painting series on car explosions, I'm not sure were I'm visually heading with them yet. I trying to combine various painting elements into the series from formal representation to abstraction.
This piece was inspired by an old gang member, he told a few of my friends in an awkward conversation that the best way to get rid of a body is to burn it in a car. he said if the procedure is done correctly dental records will become useless in identifying the remains.
These paintings are about two years old, i repainted them after John Millei advised me to take better care of them. I stored them terribly so they got dinged up and ended up with scratches, at that point i decided to restore them.
