I know what I see.  I think your shrink would agree - if you had one.

There's a special genius evident here that only people who are certified at a certain IQ level should be allowed to experience.

The great unwashed masses won't understand anyway.

Yeah – hopefully – in heaven. Just knock on the doors which says "intelligent fools" and you will get a nice reward.

Those cherubs can be terribly annoying, buzzing all over the place, and they don't even have the decency to wear a diaper.

Anyway, I like this!

Those cherubs they mate like rabbits, they eat just anything, and shit in my food, (no diaphers) But on the other hand there are quite amiable – never turning down a nice chat or a drink! But how is your arm Adrey, that what i want to know. I must admit i havent given your arm much attention lately... Too much on my mind. Working had for less than peanuts. Hey I like you! (no flirting) Keep it up!

Ha ha! True, those cherubs can be cute little buggers.

The arm is feeling much better, thank you. I recently started doing yoga and that helps loosen things up, so I'm not all tense anymore.

Mary was flying through your kitchen and you swatted her and the cherubs! You lifted up the swatter to see what you had done and she looked at you with mercy in her eyes even though she was squashed flat!

A nice story, But she was quite flat when i found her in the bible! Thanks for the interpretation Richard!

What's interesting to me is how you covered the surface of the swatter with the images so that if you were to hit the fly even just reasonably straight on--thwack!--it's crushed body would be concealed, the smooshed little secret hidden from view. In that way, this piece makes quite a strong statement about organized religion, I think. Hosanna to you, Mr. Derkert.

Hi Laura, It is always a true joy to to receive your funny and imaginative interpretations of my pictures. It is true. I am not a fan of organized religion, o organized crime for that matter, but as usual I havent a clue to what's going on. To me it was simply that the swatter is a mundane object and religion is celestial.... ahm... a nice contrast, sort of...you know what I mean....not like wresting.....but.....more like swatting and that is not my style, to swift.

I think I am in tune with your deeper self! What I like about your work is that there is the obvious, but if you just look at the piece for a bit, other messages magically appear. It's a fun experience, and goes well with a flinty Chardonnay.

Oh that's nice enough but you wrapped your card in a tape which you marked "love tape". Yes quite sticky! What did you mean?!

Thanks, I was quite pleased when I found the title. It flew around me like a fly, and it hit me like a red swatter that the piece must be called Lord 0f the flies! Right, I said!
