About this painting
Skin Of Evil is an episode from the television series Star Trek: The Next Generation, famed for being the episode where main character Tasha Yar is killed, a death was thought ridiculously senseless by fans and critics because the character was killed for no reason by an enemy with no motive apart from being evil, filled with irrational hatred, an enemy from a desert land, made from what appeared to be oil.

When re-watching the episode in 2015, Mark was struck by the prophetic reflection of that story in contemporary global politics.
