Donna Summer in Syria

by Timothy Siciliano

19.7 x 27.6 in|Limited edition 30 pcs.

The idea of this work, Donna Summer in Syria, is the romance and ritualistic hype of war and violence.

Why is it romantic?

Why is it covered by the media in such “thrilling” detail? I am numbed by it all.

What am I supposed to feel?

What do they want me to feel?

What are we as a collective body supposed to feel?

Exposed to the relentless hyper-violence of “our” world we must escape from ourselves and such numbing scenarios with the music:

Pounding beats like bombs going off, the disco ball glitters us with shrapnel. As we load our guns we crank up the beat and blow it all in a dazzling ecstasy of color to cover our wounds.

My works are fever dreams of the political and the profane. They are psychedelic musings of my psyche and how I react to and digest the uncontrollable barrage of images and sounds in our multi-media future-shock existence. These paintings are a direct reflection of my musings at both the personal level and the level of the collective conscious. Corporate culture, society, war, mass shootings, sex, industrialization, ecological apocalypses:

No subject matter is so sacred that it can escape this day-glo techno expose.
