Oil Painting by Jack Kevorkian - "Fa La La La La

Lot 0085 Details

Description
"Fa La La La La, - La La, - La, - LA!" Signed and dated lower left 1994 - Size 30" X 24" - This commemoration of what is considered to be divine birth is usually framed within the juvenile delights of irrelevant rituals and icons. Hopelessly enmeshed in the tawdry garlands, a degenerate and decaying spirit vainly seeks renewed vitality and sustenance in the paradox which has set and sealed its fate. Is the ultimate glorification in garlands and gifts, trees and tinsel, hearths and holly, or Santa and reindeer? If not, if there is a too intimate and hypocritical involvement with false idols, then the boot should be lifted off quickly, the candle lighted, and the cobwebs brushed away. But alas, it might be too late, for dry bones cannot do it. Fa La La La La depicts the waste and commercialism of Christmas when people starve while others get unnecessary gifts. Opponents of JK say this is an example of how he likes to kill babies. NO!! The Santa foot on crushing the baby Jesus is how profit
