WELL, WITH HARDLY A WORD:
I am an artist also, but the politics in my paintings support my strong opinions on the importance of family, not a big issue on the broad scale of things.Indeed a primal unit that has suffered as the new global economic system has developed. I paint my family to express my love and bring them closer. The following political paintings are about bigger issues; they are my favorites-- lined up as I thought of them.
|Norman Rockwell, The-Problem-We-All-Live-With. Or did. A lot of blood and public pressure put an end to segregation in the schools in the South. Brave innocents walking heavily protected to what she was entitled to as an American .|
|Delacroix, Liberty Leading the People.|
|Goya, Saturn Devouring One of His Sons, one of the paintings from the Black Series|
|The most famous political painting. Who doesn't know Guernica, Picasso's giant mural in protest of the Nazi's bombing the town of Guernica? The actual painting is done in gray blues. It's awesome.|
|Judy Chicago's The Dinner Party, Brooklyn Museum.|
Woman power, Vagina power asserted over and over again, place setting after place setting in ceramic three dimension.
Women's rights was something I marched down Pennsylvania Avenue to show my support.
|My Art studio is just across the street from the beach.|
An environmentalist/artist's strong political statement about
oil spills and the well being of our planet's natural resources.
|Edvard Munch, The Scream. A painting against war that is so powerful, it has become a cliche for|
all situations that cause angst. I adore it.
