This is a painting I just completed, an homage to Edward Hopper’s “Hotel Room”  (1931)  with an unexpected Ronald MacDonald and analog television (static!!) juxtaposition. It is an art parody with a modern twist about different eras.

The image is from the Florentine Codex. The codex depicts a priest performing a human sacrifice with a flint knife. The victim is shown held by priests and the throbbing heart was ripped out and offered to the sun to keep the universe in motion. In my version, the heart is replaced by a red “designer” iPad. Now… was the gadget extracted from the sacrificial victim and then offered to the sun? Or, are the priests getting ready to document the victim before the sacrifice actually takes place (perhaps, you tube “uploading”)?
