Meaning: "Somewhere between Conflagration and Confabulation lies Conflamingulation". Derived from the words; "Confabulate", "Copulate", and "Flamingo".
Conflamingulation depicts the sublimation of aggression into absurdity. The violent impulse is transformed into a harmless charade in a cavern intermediate between the Biblical (Elijah's Cave of the School of the Prophets in Jerusalem), and the Classical (the Tepidarium of the Forum Bath of Pompeii). Here within this paradigmatic interregnum, the causes, mechanisms, and consequences of war are dissolved as though they were drugs being added slyly to wine to intoxicate unknowingly the viewer of the painting.
