|Giger's Mordor VI and James Gleeson's Cape Carnivoral 1985|
a) Connecting Cape Carnivoral with Giger's Mordor VI
On 10th of April 2015, painter Leo Plaw posted a link to a Facebook page Fantastic Art in the same thread dealing with Gleeson's "The Sower" with more photos of paintings by James Gleeson, and I suddenly came to a painting Cave Carnivoral and suddenly something rang with my mind, it shared shapes and forms with Giger's work and then I suddenly realised that it was Mordor IV because of the row of teet cups from Giger's painting and this contained a similar row of shapes, connected to a similar semi-phallic form.

Points of comparison
|row of teet cups and similar forms in Gleeson's painting|
|hands of bishop-fish in Giger's painting and similar but abstract angular and curved forms in Gleeson's painting|
|Buttocks like form in Giger's painting and similar but divided version in Gleeson's painting|
