Lanny Markasky, Untitled, 2016

It’s an unnerving painting; a young man goads another into cutting off his own arm. A woman stands impatiently by the door. The artist writes that “The painting was kind of an experiment I did a while ago, it’s not a true story, just a picture illustrating a kind of philosophical idea I had about the pressures people put on themselves to accomplish their goals.”
