L'archéologie des épiceries

One of just six pieces painted by JSH in 2009, this large-scale piece is markedly more slashing and neo-expressionist, a la Basquiat or DeKooning, than much of the artist's prior oeuvre. JSH declined to comment at all on this piece until it is exhibited later this year. We had to run the title of it through Babelfish for a translation, and it apparently means "The Archaeology of Groceries."
