WHEEL, DEAL, STEAL, THEN SPIN - As The World Turns
Sgraffito and mixed media on wood panel
13-1/2" x 17-1/4"
About the Work
WHEEL, DEAL, STEAL, THEN SPIN is a series of small narrative Sgraffito and mixed media pieces with a specific political bent.
Employing a combination of painting, drawing, and collaged elements - images from old engravings and early 20th c. photographs - each of the 10 wooden panels satirizes rant-worthy political maneuvers. AS THE WORLD TURNS focuses on the Democratic process, Congress, and politics - all from an historical perspective.
Born in Newport News, Virginia, and studied literature at Hollins College (now Hollins University) in Roanoke, VA., and later moved to Philadelphia to attend the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts.
Major exhibitions over the past years include those at Cerulean Arts (Philadelphia), Goggleworks (Reading, PA), Lake Eustis Museum of Art (Florida), Rosenfeld Gallery (Philadelphia), James Oliver Gallery (Philadelphia), and Arlington Arts Center (Virginia). Selected group and juried shows include the National Liberty Museum ("Deconstructing Bowie", "Philly's Freedom")(Philadelphia), Art in City Hall (Philadelphia), and The Philadelphia Foundation (with the Philadelphia Art Alliance).
My studio practice for the past 20 years has focused mainly on social issues (gun violence, politics, death customs), but has always embraced text as image.
Buyer assumes all S&H costs.
