nice painting at MCA

This painting on flickr blows my mind.

my comment left on flickr:
Incredible painting. The “x” on the person really fills the void of the painting. Pairing this “x” with the red border is quite dynamic especially since the person was painted on top of the red border. It has an eerie sense of dimension. I’d like to know how the artist got the legs to extend below the edge of the painting. This begins to have a sculptural quality. Though the flat “x” on his chest reels him back in the surface. This back-and-forth play on dimensions intrigues.
