Duel

Oil on Birch, 2010, 14"x 36"x 14"

Another in my split screen dilemma series. The shooters are facing off when viewed head on but as you move they aren't really aiming at each other. A hare is crouching in the landscape and they are physically aimed at that, but will the bullets travel through the painting? Did the painting conspire to make them shoot at each other? If they fire will the hares and each other all be doomed? Will they be frozen in paint for eternity or will they eventually fire? Its not for me to decide.

Hi Andy. Brilliant work as usual.
This series is very interesting, love them all and especially the deep and clean panoramic view on this last one. Don't know if it was intentional, but these "split images" depict clearly how each reality is an individual creation. "Interaction" between subjects depends on an observer perception which affects the whole (like in quantum physics). Thanks for sharing, your work is truly inspiring!
