About this painting
Mark purchased some condoms in 2008, and in early 2014 re-discovered these, finding the date expired. This sad discovery prompted him to paint them, quietly, carefully in extreme detail, almost in penance, like a monk.

For Mark, this evoked the artist Juan Sánchez Cotán, who painted still life images of food with that same reverential, monastic quality, floating items painted with extreme patience and care. That artist indeed became a monk and this painting became Mark's tribute to his work.
