"The title is a biblical reference, and taken more than a little out of context for the purpose of the painting. The centerfold-like monstrosity is Death, herself, actually perched upside-down on a cross-section of horizon line, running through a cemetery scene. Inverted like this, the viewer's perspective is like that of those buried in the graves. From Death's toe, a spoon castes the dead's remains back into space. So, all the imagery in the night sky area follows suit, "breaking down" so to speak. And Death is voluptuous, playful,nightmarish, a touch mocking, ambiguity personified. So Oh Death, Where is Thy Sting? is a statement on the nature of death and it's mysteries and facing the unknown. It was also being painted at a time I became aware of anthropologist Ernest Becker's ideas on death anxiety, which comes to the conclusion that human evil is the result of a desire for immortality. That's not exactly represented in Oh, Death but some of his other ideas I did feel complimented my own meditations at the time working on the painting and what went into it's development."
