This is part of a statement by the artist for the background of this work:
"Working with nude models and what my photographs and video captures of them, I produced paintings and drawings that then were scanned into the computer for improvisational compositing into one large piece '4096: Trust Time'. Partly inspired by 'The Book of Kells', a Celtic illuminated manuscript, by Michelangelo's Sistine Chapel ceiling and by the life in L.A. today, this piece is about our bodies and our feelings towards time, consciousness and our relationship towards sex."

Physical description

This miniature colour inkjet print depicts a tableau like scenery with numerous individual different nude bodies, male and female, in different postures. The picture is composed in a collage-like style, the bodies and sceneries assembled together in different sizes, colours and styles. The whole composition resembles a ceiling fresco. Tag with address and contact details and an inscription with signature in pencil are at the back of print.
