Statement

Now until March 2, a focus on food, Sechrest Gallery, NC

Angus Deaton, the noble prize winning economist in discussing randomized trials that he proposed to solve hunger and the lack of nutrition among the poor in India, made a point that “experiments are technical solutions to political problems…done on the poor and not by the poor” hence set up for possible failure. The extreme income inequality is a hindrance to democracy and an effective distribution of wealth or tax money.

“More of the same” – always a safe bet – familiar and predictable. So deep is the dependence on the “familiar and safe”, that the choice by default is always that which has been previously experienced – “true and tried” – a popular justifications! The consciousness however is forever expanding and morphing…it seeks new insights and new ways of being…even though the love of “typecast” makes one conform to accepted codes of decorum for fear of rejection. Need for validation curbs the capacity to love the self and others.                            

Feb., 2016        Augusta Savage Gallery, “ I Breathe With You”, MA

Color Vision
Lately there has been much senseless bloodshed over an age old prejudice that simply won’t go away.  “I can’t breathe” were the last words of Eric Garner when put in chokehold by NYPD.  Cops across the country are being shot down randomly.  Time to address the prejudice and recognize that the color of blood is always red. Color Vision is a group of 4 canvases.  Each rendered in Ishihara vision chart style inscribed with words that every person feels and can identify with.  “I have a Dream” consists of two dream catchers, each with a diagram of a cross section of a blood cell.
