DESCRIPTION

Jack the Pelican is pleased to present "Just Cause It's Legal Doesn't Make It Right." --Michael Genovese paints out the message in Spanish, Polish and Hebrew (the ethnic languages of this area) with great exuberance across the back wall of the gallery. It's a grand, festive sign, zesty with decorative flourishes, like something you once saw painted on the window of a Rochester diner or an LA street vendor's cart. --A little bit of ethnic spice, maybe a whiff of nostalgia, earnestness instead of irony... But the resemblance ends there. This is the mother of all signs. A masterfully executed, conceptually and politically loaded firebomb of understatement.
