About this painting
This painting is about the impact of the Internet on the arts.

We see two leafless trees in a winter landscape. Below are pretty images, boxed like the results of an image search in a search engine. Above the trees is a crow, emphasising the bleakness of the scene.

Technical details
The complex frame was intended to be curved and sinuous like a wooden structure from the Art Nouveau period, but the tones and textures here are ossific, bone-like.
