(Brooke Adams) "Oh, Matthew, I can't go on. I wanna go to sleep. I can't stay awake any more."
(Donald Sutherland) "You have to. You have to stay awake."
- Invasion of the Body Snatchers (1978)

Mixed Media, Paper and Acrylic on Stretched Canvas 30” width x 40” height x 1.5” depth
Glossy surface

The Clone is inspired by (1) John Everett Millais’ pre-raphaelite painting, Ophelia, (2) Invasion of the Body Snatchers, directed by Phillip Kaufman, Solofilm, 1978, (3) Russian Constructivism, and (4) German Expressionism.

The body of a woman floats down a river of organic shapes and Russian Constructivist patterns. To her right is a half-formed glitchy clone.
Fluorescent textures lie below the surface of her face. Digital orange lines represent light rays.

The work explores fears of losing our personal identities in the midst of AI, systems, and political battles.
