Acevedo: Impaled Armless Daddy features characters from Ectoplasmic Kitchen and the future Semiotic Outback. The title of this image comes from the accidental fact that the left forearm and hand of the man failed to render, when the file was sent to the film recorder. It's a kind of night scene - the color scheme evokes a dark melancholy. Most of the kitchen decorum hovers like laser beam edge-vectors converging to implied vanishing points. Daddy and daughter are locked in a serious stare. The little girl is mysteriously ominous, emergent from the black lonely space. While Daddy is missing an arm, her arm is extended and her fingers are cupped as if holding someone's hand, but no one is there.
