The bookend phrases in this series, “Paintings of Devils”, “Then Devils Themselves” were taken from the book, “The Meat And Spirit Plan” by Selah Saterstrom. The phrase has been interpreted to represent the idea of failing, and the fruition of the failure. This series aims to illustrate the steps one experiences while subconsciously causing their own defeat: The Inkling of the self-sabotage, the Alibi to discredit the thought, and the Proof of the Inkling.

The book was given to me by a person I was sitting next to at City, O’ City in Denver, Colorado.
