LOUIS MASAI MICHEL All artwork in this collection is a part of the series ‘A tale of unfortunate sins’ Every member of the characters depicted in the series has committed murder. The murder of an animal often referred to as hunted or slaughtered has occurred. Some of these deaths have caused the species to confront extinction. This series documents a curse that has been bound to the photographed culprits. The curse leaves the human with an animal’s head showing the world what animal he or she killed. The curse is life long and depending on the extent of damage the kill has caused will have impact upon the cursed. It is not unknown for the curse to spread through the family and even onto unborn children. Life becomes extended much like a vampire and results in a long torturers existence only terminable by the species that was hunted in the first place. Possession of one of these paintings however holds no bad omen and in fact binds an agreement of respect between human and animal. The hanging of a painting in the series “A tale of unfortunate sins” redeems the character in the painting thus allowing them to be at peace with nature…
