Gurda

BEFORE BREENING

AFTER BREENING

Text says,Text says,‘Gurda wore her diaphragm on her head, signaling her ticking biological clock!’Acrylic on oil? on canvas about 20″X16″.

When Mrs. Breen first saw this original she immediately asked, “Why is she wearing a diaphragm on her head!?” This is a question I have striven to answer with my acrylics over the past couple of days. This painting is packed with juicy breeny symbolism against a background of ancient cyanobacteria! Gurda’s many arms hold lipstick, to attract a mate, Venus of Willendorf fertility figurine, a hand held in greeting and flaming biological clock sporting X and Y chromosomes. Her other hands hold the things she gives up, birth control, booze and cigarettes. In the tree above, a couple are k-i-s-s-i-n-g, first comes love, then come marriage, then comes a baby in the baby carriage. And of course, when the bough breaks…

Now here is the fun part. On the back of the painting there are longitude and latitude coordinates for another painting,
THIS FREE PAINTING.

This painting is hidden somewhere in New England. If you have a handheld GPS unit, you will be able to get within 15-40 feet of it, then you search. If you win this auction I’ll give you my cell phone number so I can give you clues – I mean, it will be pretty easy to find when you get to the coordinates. If the bonus painting lies unclaimed for a month after I’ve sent out ‘biological clock’ via priority mail, I’ll put the coordinates on the back of another painting for sale. If for some reason, somebody stumbles upon the painting and takes it, then I reserve the right to replace it with another painting of equal value.
