A 3 hour latenight (11-1) work that included dance, graphic anal praying/performance, the building of a totem-easel and then the portrait-painting from memory of a prostitute that was found murdered, alongside three others, on the outskirts Atlantic City, NJ, two Thanksgivings ago (11/06).
[The portraits seen here on A’TYS in the Paint/2000's "Black Horse Pike" gallery are the faces of these 4 murdered prostitutes. As of Spring '08 no arrest has been made. For FUR EGG the portrait painted was the face of Molly Jean Dilts.]
