‘Charon’ shows a monster truck, slowly rotating in mid air above a mountainous, dusty and cloudy landscape. ‘Charon’ is the name of the ferryman in Greek mythology, who carries the dead across the river Styx in a boat. The truck is a proposed contemporary vehicle to cross the line between the realm of the living and an afterlife.
The landscape reminds of the apocalyptic backgrounds in 16th century paintings by, for instance, Hieronymus Bosch.
