CARLO THERTUS : THE-R-TUS

Louima 1997, Acrylic on Linen, 60"x48" 1997

This painting is about one of worst things that can happen to a human. In 1997, Abner Louima was sodomized
by Volpe, a Policeman from the 77th Precinct in the capital of the world. While time was about to click into the
21st century, humans of this great civilization were behaving like gorillas.

In this painting Louima coming out of a recucitation on a hospital bed connected with IV's all over his
lifeless body. If the policeman was to protect and to serve then this barbaric act indicated at what level
humanity's consciousness is at in relative to time and evolution.

Man must find the harmony of love to continued our existence.

Time for Love.

- Carlo Thertus
