I will be donating 100% of sales from my piece: "Love" 14" x 10" gouache, collage on paper 2016, to Lisa's campaign. Bidding starts at $300.00, Value is $750.00.
This piece was created November 4, 2016, four days before the presidential election. It is from a collage series that I began creating as a follow up to my sculptural dummy smart phones series. Both series involved collaging magazine imagery as smart phone screens. This is one of the very first ones, if not the very first one, I created, so it is an extremely valuable piece historically. As the presidential election was only four days away it was informed by the political maneuvering in the lead up to election day. Two arms in a baroque entanglement attempt to communicate via their smart phones...the red-sleeved arm's phone displaying a gold chain and the blue-sleeved arm's phone displaying a suggestive organic cavity-like form. In retrospect, being where we are today in the midst of a pandemic and having been held hostage for four years to grim displays of partisan upheaval, I am glad that I had the foresight, back then, to title this painting "Love".
From Lisa: "As a teacher in rural Maine, I work with children whose families are struggling to survive in an economy that’s thrown working people under the bus. To make things worse, we’re facing a climate crisis that’s already harming our farms, fisheries and coast. Yet with all the urgent needs we face, Congress is making things worse by giving almost 60% of our federal discretionary budget to the Pentagon for endless, unwinnable wars that are making the world less safe.
It’s time to say no to politics as usual, and join together to work for a new system that puts people, planet and peace over profit.
We have a historic opportunity in this race now that Maine has adopted Ranked Choice Voting. Our new and improved voting system, which Mainers won through an inspiring grassroots movement, gives everyone the freedom to vote their values, not their fears. In my experience, most Mainers share the Green Party's values of peace, justice, democracy, environmental protection, and independence from the political establishment."
