The Night He Came Home
Thomas Brodhead – American, born 1968 – The Night He Came Home –2012 – acrylic on canvas – 30" x 40" x 0.75" (76.2cm x 101.6cm x 1.91cm)
A fête of Halloween in an otherwise empty kitchen, this celebration of perspective-gone-wrong brings into focus the machinations of evil lagomorphs and demonic wraiths. Bats hanging from ceiling strings can’t mute the true terror of a cockroach infestation, but a happy jack-o’-lantern will distract us from the inevitable pest control bill. Not recommended for nurseries or children under 6.
