Are you still a Believer? 

2 Comments

I try to steer clear of politics with respect to my art. Back in 2009 when I created the ‘Are you a Believer?’ series, I was responding to a wave of hope that people projected just before Obama’s election. Once Obama was in office and the wave of hope had hit the shores and dissipated, the dialogue turned from hopeful to critical. Throughout his term I have been painting his portrait with a few simple rules such as using the same profile and size of canvas. Despite this it is intersting to see how his image has changed, in fact currently I am working on the fifth painting and I would say it has been the most difficult to to make yet. Interesting times are upon us, and as we progress I really do wonder how we will respond to the challenges in the coming years.
