God Told Me to Skin You Alive (1995)
This collage was created as the album cover for Green Day’s “Insomniac” and is called God Told Me to Skin You Alive, a reference to Dead Kennedys first album, “Fresh Fruit for Rotting Vegetables”. Interestingly enough, the cover art contains an image (the dentist) that was originally used in a collage featured in the insert booklet art of Dead Kennedys’ album Plastic Surgery Disasters. There are also three skulls on the entire album cover– one for each member of Green Day. One of the skulls requires you to view the piece at an angle. The hidden skull is taken from Hans Holbein’s 1533 painting The Ambassadors.
