Sucker

100.00

"Sucker" from Jeremy Cross

oil on masonite   2.5x3"     4x4.5" framed

exhibited in "Nou Surrealism"

The series title is "Safe As Houses"

Regarding the work-

 I have always found this colloquial phrase odd. "Safe As Houses". After all, don't most of the terrible things that happen to people happen in someones house? We spend most of our time in these things & Kitchens and Bathrooms are statistical death traps! Not to mention all of the emotion strife that takes place behind closed doors. Where our private selves are left to rampage unchecked. Where "good" people do "bad" things. 

 With this in mind and with the theme of "Surrealism" as my goal, I felt like turning this a bit on its head and creating houses that didn't really seem safe even from the outside. If buildings could tell you what had happened inside of them, how would that effect their appearance, or expression?
