30″ x 40″ Oil on canvas (2012)
‘Rise’ was one of the bloody epithets left at the crime scene during the Manson murders of August 8th and 9th 1969. What exactly were those ritual style killings giving rise to, exactly? This painting evokes dark forces with the miasma of beasts and occult symbolism , swallowing up the melting visage of actress Sharon Tate, who illuminates like a ghost against the dark ebon background.
Rise was featured in John Borowskis documentary-Serial Killer Culture (available on Amazon)
