From the introduction:
This book includes the paintings that were shown at the Jonathan LeVine Gallery NYC October 2012, it also includes the paintings that were not exhibited due to time and space restrictions.
When no one can see, we shed the lies and let our real selves flop and shudder into view, but without an audience do we exist?
Machine Sabbath is that world, we all live in, some can see it, some admit it, most made in the open dreaming of living in it. A rejection of the world that accepts violence and death yet cries in disgust at the carnal, a world run by the memories and edicts of the dead and dreadful.
Whispered but heard by all.
