Citizen

This painting is the first of a new series focused on the climate of the contemporary American political discourse; a dialogue in which rivals cannot agree on the game at which they are competing, and allies rip each other to shreds upon placing a toe off the party line. The series of paintings will focus on what it is to be a citizen, and the potential for social breakdown with in-fighting as its impetus. They are a practice in nuanced thought for myself, and a call for more nuanced thought among my fellow Americans.

These works are still in progress, but images will be added as the project moves along.
