Art Description

Painting: Acrylic on Paper.

My gorillas are the uncensored human, laying bare a primitiveness we can all relate to. In a culture defined by the media’s constructed images and idolization of our super stars, we have been led to equate being aesthetically pleasing with personal satisfaction. Despite their large hairy bodies and prominent nostrils, the gorillas redefine super star. Poised in the nude, they greet you with genuine self-confidence. This is why I also take my work to the public space, painting gorillas on exterior walls, so they exist within our “civilized” environment and remind us to be at peace with our own human nature.
