Investigations of Greed


Detail of a mixed media piece done for an invitational show at Ownings Dewey Gallery in Santa Fe last month. The theme was "In the Garden of Good and Evil." I felt it was the perfect opportunity to make a statement about all the revelations of greed/fraud/ corruption which were being featured on the daily news.
And ... . with last weeks' revelations about Mr. Madoff - the same theme seems to march on, as we try to maintain a bit of holiday festivity. He certainly wrecked more than a few parties in Palm Beach .. .. LA ... NY .. .BNP.

Beautiful thought provoking work...I particular love the use of the fabric.

This is very cool and also appropriate for the present days all the Madoffs in this world have forced us to live!
