Inspired again by the art creation techniques of Japanese Gutai Group artist Takesada Matsutani, I experiment painting a large canvas with "acramina" (acramine?) black screen printing ink utilizing a large squeegee. "Death Makes The Market" is the theme, with the art industry notion of the "death effect" at its core. The "death effect" is when the perceived / financial value of an artist's work increases after his death.

I should credit Patrice Chaplin for telling me about Modigliani's quote "Death makes the market".

Following is a video of me painting DEATH MAKES THE MARKET, then followed by detail shots of the painting:
