Here’s my latest painting, my first social commentary on our current world. All the influences in each of our lives can be boiled down to religion, media, government/finance and consumerism. For better or worse, these things have an impact on what we do today and what will happen to us tomorrow.
As far as the actual painting goes, I liked the contrast in color and texture of each of the images used in the composition. I think its an image that catches the eye and ultimately have the viewer ask questions. I don’t think this artwork or any other piece of art can actually change things, but if art can make enough people think and ask questions then progress can begin.
