"As I See It: Liberty"

"Liberty" is an original, mixed media on board. 7' x 8'. This work is part of a series I'm calling "As I See It: A Re-envisioning of Masterworks."  My "Liberty" is a tribute to Michelangelo's "Pieta".  This speaks to the loss of our life, liberty, and pursuit of happiness in this country. My mother image is a black woman, if you didn't know--the original model for the Statue of Liberty was a black woman carrying a lantern and broken chains. She was a gift from French abolitionists. The black man represents all black men and women who have been denied freedoms.  On his arm is a Black Lives Matter tattoo.

The seriers will end up being a celebration of my 60 years of growth as a professional artist and will include  twelve (12) large scale works of art that includes tributes to Michelangelo’s ‘Pieta’, Warhol’s ‘Marilyn’, Vermeer’s ‘Pearl Earring’, Munch’s “The Scream”, and Picasso’s ‘Woman in the Mirror’, among others.  Each of the pieces is visually compelling because I do use people of color, but each also contains a social message that is sometimes obvious, sometimes not.  

Each original in the series is $80,000 USD.
