acrylic and pencil on pages from a bird encyclopaedia

'Now you may suffer’ is a series of 29 small works on paper. In the series, photos from an old bird encyclopaedia are transformed into Adam and Eve:
“So this is the moment. The timid swallows become Adam and Eve. Arms arise from the hunched shoulders, with hands covering up the pubic area. A human mask replaces the bird head. With a pair of bare legs they are ready. Ready to take over the guilt and suffering of all humanity. Ready to sin eagerly. Ready to sink into the earth from shame. Ready to die.”
