       Alex Gene Morrison, Black Bile (Eyes), 2007, oil and collage on linen

 
 

     The pastel corona & the wide set of the pupils seal it for me. & that glossy oilslick texture, like it was coated in bootblack. The touch of red in the eyewhite too.
     I like even better imagining this is a coney-island cut-out station for tourists to stand behind for photo-ops.
