Caulrophobic Clowns Go Downtown

Propofol Clown (Tribute to MJ), 10 x 10", Acrylic on canvas, 2009

"There's no space too small, too dark and airless and fucking hopeless, for people to crawl into." -- Nick Hornby (A Long Way Down)

"Well, you know, you want some kind of relief from the agony and terror of human existence. Human existence is a brutal experience to me…it’s a brutal, meaningless experience—an agonizing, meaningless experience with some oases, delight, some charm and peace, but these are just small oases. Overall, it is a brutal, brutal, terrible experience, and so it’s what can you do to alleviate the agony of the human condition, the human predicament? That is what interests me the most. I continue to make the films because the problem obsesses me all the time and it’s consistently on my mind and I’m consistently trying to alleviate the problem, and I think by making films as frequently as I do I get a chance to vent the problems." – Woody Allen, interview in Commonweal Magazine

"Clowns work as well as aspirin, but twice as fast." -- Groucho Marx

"A fool thinks himself to be wise, but a wise man knows himself to be a fool."
-- William Shakespeare

"Can't sleep; clowns will eat me." -- Lisa Simpson
