Dying to Remember
In Tim Burton is a world renowned and respected animator, producer, and film director. Burton makes a corpse dance in our hearts and rattle our bones. In this piece you will find familiar faces like the sharp hands of an orphaned hair dresser, the decay of a corpse dressed in all white, a dismembered mischievous juicy demon, and of course the maggot-eating boogey-man. Burton’s unforgettable macabre landscapes and all its wacky inhabitants are always shown brighter and more passionately than the world of the living. He tells us the tales of our own demise and warns us that the tiniest mistake can leave us six feet under. As a wise skeleton once said, why would you want to go up there when "Everybody's dying to get down here"?
Pablo Picasso investigated the conscience of the soul and the depression of the mind trapped in the chaos and depravity of war. His 1937 painting titled “Guernica”, is a depiction of the German bombing of a tiny innocent civilian village which struck fear in every citizen who thought they were safe. This great memorial told the story of those lost in the Spanish civil war and reminded us to always dance before the song ends. The combination of these two great artists brings new life to our barbaric history and serves as a memorial to the sacrifice of the innocent and the stories they aren’t around to share.
