NEW PPOV PAINTINGS!
“Call Out & Deconstruct Hate”
New works in progress, evolving from my “Common Origins” series.
Contemporary culture remains complex, now more than ever. Artists have for hundreds of years,
as a matter of conscience, responded to the moment as a form of creative expression and decidedly as a moral and political act.
When I saw Donald Trump proclaim his theatrics and mock a disabled journalist, I was dismayed and angered. Now he admonishes military veterans who have and continue to make the greatest sacrifice for their country as “losers” and “suckers” and military leaders as “f..kers” and “p..sies”. His pattern of lies, bullying, misogyny, cover-ups, voter suppression, nationalistic white supremacist stoked citizen and racial divide and downplayed response the COVID crisis
for his personal benefit defies human decency and defines failed leadership. At this cataclysmic moment in our country and throughout the globe, fascism runs rampant.
Coming from a family of Veterans, including my father's WWII service,
and my own, USAF, Vietnam Era, '70-'74, I am compelled to respond.
My personal point of view (PPOV) in response is expressed
in these developing paintings below, “Call Out & Deconstruct Hate”. - MD '20
