I painted the entire corpus of American Presidents. During my research on Early American history, I found my self intrigued by the visual impact of our collection of Presidents. A medley of men, particularly of a homogeneous nature. Musty images of our Presidents often remind us of our awkward middle-school days, memorizing names and dates, scenes of war, and high society from a time long past. I am interested in re-exploring the presentation and representation of our Nation’s past and our future. The Presidents were on display at World of Wonder Storefront Gallery in October 2008 and Blankspace Gallery in January, 2009.
