Making the art cannot stand alone as taking action – nor can viewing it. I believe we must all use what we can to activate others, to rouse the texting masses, the mediated generation.
In my recent work I broaden the audience awareness of under reported social and political issues. In my series “The Refugees” I focus on very distressed populations due mainly to war. The intent of these paintings is to reach those who may think of art as pretty pictures.
In sculpture I have used the figure as a vessel to provoke thought, reaction and action. For example, “Man in Question” is a piece which asks the viewer to contemplate our sustainability as a race on this planet. My hope is to connect people with broader social perspectives and ignite action.
