Winston Moseley, A Hunter

Winston Moseley by Patrushka

Winston Moseley, who stalked, raped and killed Kitty Genovese in a prolonged knife attack in New York in 1964 while neighbors failed to act on her desperate cries for help — a nightmarish tableau that came to symbolize urban apathy in America.

While at Attica Correctional Facility, in 1968, he escaped while on a hospital visit to Buffalo, raped a woman and held hostages at gunpoint before being recaptured. A psychopathic serial killer and necrophiliac, he died on March 28, 2016 at the maximum security Clinton Correctional Facility in Dannemora, N.Y. He had been imprisoned for almost 52 years, since July 7, 1964.

This piece is another from my ongoing series – The “Hunters and The Hunted”  artworks designed to call attention to the ongoing physical and mental abuse towards women in our society.

Just Deserts For O.J. Simpson

For Nicole, Just Deserts - Patrushka

O.J. Simpson murdered his ex-wife Nicole Brown Simpson and this is a vengeful fantasy completed in memory of her. O.J. was never convicted or punished for the crime – due to massive corruption and ineptitude on the part of the LA prosecutors and police. Not to mention the high-profile lawyers that O.J. could afford to hire and the fact that the whole trial was twisted into a “race” issue.

In my artwork, Nicole gets a little bit of justice and uses O.J. as the dartboard, turning the tables on her reality as a battered (and finally murdered) wife. Hence, O.J. finally gets his just deserts…  Based on the mug shot taken by the Los Angeles police, 1994.

This is another piece for my “Hunters and Hunted” series – depicting the emotional trauma of sexual assault and domestic violence, the victims and the perpetrators. The “Hunters” are all black and white scratchboard, while the “Hunted” are painted in color, usually gouache or oil on wood.

Brett, A Hunter

“Brett”, A Hunter

Medium: Scratchboard,  Size: 7″ x 9″ (framed)

Rapist – Brett Alan Lengstorf.

Six weeks after the rape, he was arrested in Santa Cruz County for possession of crack cocaine, methamphetamine, and drug paraphernalia.

The plaintiffs had contracted with Narconon to provide in-patient treatment for the wife. When the wife arrived, she was put into detoxification at what was called the “withdrawal cabin” which was some distance from the main facility. While the plaintiff was sleeping, Lengstorf who was a former student and recent graduate of the program entered the cabin, insisted on giving her a “touch assist”, and, after a chase that took place outdoors, ultimately raped her.
