Painting - Mixed Media On Panel
How has electing our first African American President affected our lives? This piece doesn�t represent a simple answer for this very complicated question; however, it is a reflection of troubling issues within our country.
In this world of instant gratification, we tend to not slow down and really pay attention to long term implications of events taking place around us every day; we seem to be more concerned about who was eliminated from the latest reality show instead. All of the quotes, headlines, and articles are from periodicals within the last two years. I have blanked out the most of the names and places in hopes of encouraging the viewer to pause, question, and hopefully investigate the issues at hand for themselves.
The piece is a collage of news clippings and acrylic accents on a Masonite panel. Various mediums were used to give the piece three dimensional qualities to add depth to the subject.
