Lurking behind 23 daisies are figures of archetypal horror: a spider-bodied rabbit predating on a diminutive human prey as a menacing face stares down from above, perhaps sponsoring the deathly encounter from some spiritual realm of malice and despair. A disturbing image for anyone who can see beyond the surface appeal of flower-shop floral arrangements, this painting would be a perfect hospital gift for someone you’ve never liked and hope would suffer a long and painful recovery from a rare and unpronounceable disease.
