a) HR Giger's N.Y. City XXII (work472) (1981)
b.i) The two side by side . Was it too early in this year for Giger's painting? Was it being talked about as something rather strange to see by Giger's extended circle in letters? Hill Street Blues was a hugely successful series at the time and the first season visually had some very odd things in it connected with Lt Hunter, etc. Even if Giger hadn't watched it, he might have enjoyed what someone else was pointing out and so this car with alligator head would become a reference image.
b.ii) The most significant idea would be that the fake alligator's mouth becomes the pincers in the centre of the painting, while the window frames become the ribbed vertical grooves in the background
b.vi) Car mirror becomes thw small buttock like formation beneath the ribbing here
b.vii) Car mirror becomes thw small buttock like formation beneath the ribbing here
b.viii) Back corner of car between the windows becomes this area with two vertical tendrils of ribbing
c.i) Comparing it to another photo in the sequence
c.ii) Side of car becomes area with rounded buttock formations
c.iii) Wheelspace beneath the mudguard become the shadowy curved indentation on the rear of the buttock like formations
c.iv) Abstractly playing with the idea of the protruding mudguard on the side of the front of the car's body.
c.v) Here the whole rear left corner of the book abstractly becomes this biomechanical part
c.vi) Comparable area
c.vii) Comparable area
c.viii) Rear bumper become the finger
c.ix) The two side by side. The wheel becomes the tail and the bulge of the mudguard becomes the ribbed torso
