As a traditional, non-digital painter (just oil on canvas), I’ve been commissioned by many publications from The New York Times to The Village Voice. Since 2001, I’ve concentrated on gallery work with an editorial, satirical slant..... essentially larger oil paintings with conceptual content reminiscent of my illustration years. Lampooning politicians, pundits, or spiritual leaders who specialize in alternative facts, manufactured outrage, false equivalents, convoluted conspiracy theories, and tunnel-visioned tribalism (whew) is my form of protest and provides a satisfying outlet.
These themes are prevalent in many of my paintings although are often explored using satire & humor as opposed to a sledgehammer. Socio-political commentary..... shaken, not stirred.
