"Ave Cioran" (32 x 41 cm), gold leaf and tempera on panel 2010
An authentic enough icon with all the proper materials, the proper prayers and proper rituals. Wine, gold flakes and everything. At last! Finally! Beaming with inner peace, content with the truth, there he stands! The holy Emil Cioran! For the youth may grin wide and joke “Cioran - The Holy Saint of Nihilism.”
