May 24, Wednesday - July 15, Saturday Conflict of Interest (Westbeth Home of the Arts)
6:30pm at Hal Bromm/2A Gallery
Admission: Free

I have always tried to make paintings that are beautiful and arresting. Whether by the use of color and composition or odd juxtaposition of subject matter. The idea is to make the viewer do a double-take and then get drawn in and perhaps ask questions. The total disregard of human rights via the increasingly militarized police force, immigration policies, and environmental prospects our planet faces leads me to realize that in the US and globally, we have a conflict of interest.
