Details:The Disappearing Man work presents itself as a symbolic clarion call. It evokes a personal narrative of concern for future human existence. I utilize an array of generic, wide-eyed, naïve appearing, repetitive portraits of man. Like artists from the past, I am reflecting a contemporary narrative of social and cultural concern. These narratives often reach beyond bucolic settings and idealized versions of the world we inhabit into sobering, darker spaces. Picasso’s Guernica (1937), arguably one of his most significant paintings, is an example of the latter. Not only was it a statement about the brutality of the Nazi regime and the tragedies and suffering of wars, but also an anti-war sentiment and symbol of peace. Fast forward to 2021. Global warming, a by-product of rampant consumerism--brought on by capitalist greed run amok--presents the human species with existential dilemmas that could, perhaps, be terminal. As demonstrated by most of his work, I am sure Picasso did not want to entertain this genre of art as a steady diet, and neither do I. However, at the moment, I am hard-pressed to think of anything of greater concern for my children, grand-children, and their children.
