This is horrifically weird, great piece! I especially like the bunny (at least I see it as a bunny) and the blue person with the cracks. And the snake/worm creature that looks as if it has been taken from the early days of The X Files, that one is cute/scary.

What a superb work of art, I love the combination of sculpture and painting - very texturally and aesthetically pleasing. I particularly like the rabbit like figure on the left and the array of colours in his eye as well as the way his jaw is visible. There is also something fascinating in the figure in the centre and the melancholy in his eyes. The whole thing is stunning to be honest, creepily beautiful. Lovely border too. x

mmm.. I love their glow, their color, the depth.. it looks like they are having a meeting in the middle of the night, and the man in the middle looks a bit sad, sensitive.. its a very intruiging character in the background too, with the light, looks very curious!!

Larkin, do you have a story somewhere I can read, how you manage to live on your art? I am very curious of how you went about!! Cheers from your swedish nr 1 Fan

I was wondering with these (sculptural) paintings you have been doing, have you had a problem with people wanting to touch them?....but I'm sure you have trained them to bite.
