Artist's description:

"They say that patriotism is the last refuge to which a scoundrel clings, steal a little and they throw you in jail. Steal a lot and then they make you king." ― Bob Dylan

Don't paint your politics, be a patriot...

Though I love to bring color, fun and energy to life on canvas, sometimes as an artist I have a duty to paint the sign of the times. The research for this project, took me to some very dark places, not only within society, but also within me. Luckily, it's been a cathartic process. And while I've been told -- you're an artist, paint your happy paintings, don't paint your politics, be a patriot - sometimes it's your job to paint how you see the world...

My aim is to expose the angst and dread that I and so many others are feeling now. The use of imagery & words are all there to encourage critical thinking. But while I'm painting a dark subject, I'm also shining a light of hopefulness. The intent is that the work begs you to interact, to be involved and take part with it. Likewise, by engaging with each other, we see that we're not alone and that together we are powerful and are working towards change.
