Oil on canvas. H40 x 50 cm

There is only one purpose for this particular knot. It has a terminal function. We live in a socially imposed delusional State – our world is veritably assailed by a pandemic of suicide. And we have yet to acknowledge this fact and create a dialogue to begin addressing this lamentable reality.

(The title is derived from a well-known song by Violeta Parra and the alternate is from a skit by comedian Eddie Izzard)
