Big Squirrel, 1984

Tom Moody, Big Squirrel, 1984

oil on canvas, 66 x 49 inches
private collection

Am continuing to work on my archives. This painting is based on a photo I took in Riverside Park. The oil-on-canvas version is a detail from the photo. Painted when I was living in Dallas, and exhibited there. This photo was taken outside of the studio in Deep Ellum that I had for about a year and a half.

deep dreamin demon

demon via grass

Funny how that Google deep dream algorithm ("dog eyes in fractal swirls") became an instant cliche. One of the perils of modernism (the persistent mental attitude, not the historic movement): a signature style, developed quickly, becomes universal, then lapses into exhaustion as a mere marker of a two-week span in culture. Mo becomes PoMo inadvertently; the potential critic of a faux-shamanistic, visually habit-ridden language has too short a window to respond and articulate before it's already "over."

Came across this in The Archives. I don't remember drawing it but it was likely done at a DQ when smoking was still a thing.
