2012 ArtPrize Entry
Save

2012 Guernica Redux - The End of Times , Has not of yet been documented . So I've provided an overview of other works ! "Guernica " is an homage to Picassio's famous antiwar proclamation . Painted on a large scale it protrays the Horrfic events of a man made Apocalypse , This painting would be at home in the studio of Hieronymus Bosch , in fact this work has many Fathers ,Munch's "Scream " or Goya's series of etching " The disasters of War " & " Shooting of May 3rds " blood runs through this paintings veins . It contains many figures in different vingettes . I've painted it bold and simply , reminiscent of the propaganda posters of the 1930s 40s .To some extent this softens the terrible images reveiled , to further remove Us from reality I've restricted my palette to the use of three colors - red , white & black , with one exception , an old man sits on his hands upon on a light blue military helmet - He represents the World & the Helmet ,The United Nations knowing but unwilling Act !

This means you've trusted and have chosen my work on the strenght of other pieces in my collection - Thank you ! I believe Art must , Inform , Challenge , provoke , and foster thought and debate & be able to transform society, which " 2012 Guernica Redux the End of Times " Can ! This is a big Painting 6 feet high & 13 feet long , so it will require appropriate space . Also it must not be placed in a dark area it should have proper light and not be in a cramp out of the way spot - forgive me if I seem picky But I want to Honor the work , my effort , and your Venue ! I hope to be there for installation - Regardless installation should be very straight forward . It will be somewhat heavy and require a several people at most to handle . It will be hung on the wall by some sort of anchored hooks that will match up with eyes screwed into the paintings frame
