Nihilismus Orcinus

Nihilismus Orcinus

16x20 Acrylic on canvas panel


Created for Serj Tankian's Orca Symphony Art Contest.

Here is a poem I wrote to go along with it:

...


O, Nihilismus Orcinus

Do unto me indiscriminately

Show me the wrath unleashed upon the Wide Island

But with a whisper so compassionately

Show me the dark of the moon in high noon

Swim through the fire and into my eyes

Into the past, from the present, behind the future

Spawn me with your blackened sun, and erase all truth and lies

Once again, evolve into what you are, but somewhere in between,


Promise to find the cure.


This painting ended up placing second in Serj Tankian's art contest! I won a pair of studio-quality earbuds, and Serj Tankian himself took the time to share these kind words about this piece:


"This piece makes me think of the starry night and the accompanying poem makes it a powerful multi-sensory artwork."
