Paintings, Drawing & Collage

 

This body of work was prompted by the disturbing 2016 election cycle and all that has followed, most especially the destructive behavior of the new president whose words and actions threaten radical overturning of norms of civil behavior, of the democratic process and international agreements.

We increasingly experience our world indirectly, in ways mediated both mechanically and digitally.  Thus the subject of this show is the highway and streetscape we perceive via car windows and mirrors, our own images reflected in glass buildings and the photo-representations we make of ourselves.

Art must say something new or something always known in a new way.  These drawings make the point that seeing requires extra effort when things are not what they initially appear to be.

____________________

Art must always surprise, catch the viewer unawares, the surprise yielding to knowing.
