“R.B.G. Passing the Baton”
Acrylic on canvas, 2020
16″ x 12″
“I make art as a way of processing the world. My most recent body of work has been entirely a reaction to the time in which I live. In using current political figures as a main subject of my work, I do take a position. I am not neutral. I use my painting to shine a light on things that I find disturbing. At the same time, I am looking for beauty if not in form, then in color and composition. Painting offers me a way to slow time down to take a longer, closer look at people in power who may be hiding behind the scenes. I have focused mainly on portraits because they have allowed me to stare into the eyes of people. To engage my curiosity about my subjects and their inner world. To find some reminder of our shared humanity even if it is our shared depravity, some connection to what it is to be human in this world, this country, at this time.”
