He's An Artist Too!

Most people know of Dr. Jack Kevorkian, AKA Dr. Death, as the demented Doctor who defied the law to help people kill themselves.

Be that as it may, he is also an artist of sorts and his artwork is available.

I will not post any of his pictures as they are not pretty at all. But this link will take you to a site where one can view and arrange to purchase copies of them. What is really scary though is not the art itself, which is disturbing enough, but his commentary on them showing what really is in the heart of this disturbed and disturbing man.

The annual resurrection by dumb bunnies of a pathetic, despairing, almost scorned image of the purported divinity is hardly noticeable amid the tawdry paraphernalia of irresistible paganism at its vernal orgy.

I think that he has become very twisted. At first, I think he did good by bringing "Death with dignity" into public discourse. Later, I felt that he became arrogant and was just pushing the law to get him, which (surprize!) it eventually did.
Now, he is just another has been trying any crackpot stunt to get in the paper.

His painting are morbid and really not very good. I did find the discription of "Nearer to my God to thee" profound:

"This depicts how most human beings feel about dying -- at least about their own deaths. Despite the solace of hypocritical religiosity and its seductive promise of an after-life of heavenly bliss. Most of us will do anything to thwart the inevitable victory of biological death. We contemplate and face it with great apprehension, profound fear, and terror. Sparing no financial or physical sacrifice, pleading wantonly and unashamedly, clutching any hope of salvation through medicine or prayer. How forbidding that dark abyss! How stupendous the yearning to dodge its gaping orifice. How inexorable the engulfment. Yet, below are the disintegrating hulks of those who have gone before; they have made the insensible transition and wonder what the fuss is all about. After all, how excruciating can nothingness be?"

He is obviously a deeply religious man -- if one can consider the church of Satan a base for any kind of religion.
