This brilliant intriguing critique of modernity recalls those outrageously tampered photographs of 'flying saucers' unleashed to the unsuspecting
public by those contactees of interplanetary visitations from a bygone era. An era we hold near and dear to our heart though nonetheless eternally
grateful, from the depths of our souls, that those 'little green men' with antenna's have too passed into those long yet unforgotten corridor's of
'happy memories' and absurd conjectures.
The theme, of course, is super advanced technology from OUTER SPACE, intruding upon nature yet not corrupting it or changing it as 'they' only are
visiting us to bid glad tidings and to ask their appointed earth ambassador to 'TAKE ME TO YOUR LEADER'.
The bold use of broad brush and oil paint, as opposed to the typical array of fancy schmancy special effects offered in computer graphics, which is
the medium typical of this genre, is indicative of a post-modernist ennui; as is the rebellious usage of its humorous paint-by-numbers 'look' -- a
subtle swipe at conformity.
