About The Artwork

Following the Women's March, I awoke with a vision of graffiti scrawled across a portrait. The vision translated into a body of reworked portraits featuring slogans from recent political events, quotations, and my own words. The portraits move from the singular to the universal, merging image with voice. The phrase in this painting as well as the title is from the sonnet "The New Colossus" written by the American poet Emma Lazarus as an ode to the Statue of Liberty. During these troubled times, these words remind us of the best aspirations of our country. The painting is done on a cradled wood panel with a 1 1/2 inch profile of birch plywood and is ready to hang.

Through a contemporary approach to portraiture, I explore the rich terrain of individual identity and what is revealed in the intimate moments of seeing and being seen. Working in the alla prima tradition, I paint largely from life, seeking to capture a sense of immediacy, freshness, and intimacy in my portraits. From the privileged position of witnessing the other, I seek to convey the unique presence of each subject as well as our shared humanity. My recent work has taken a new direction in response to the sea change in American politics. The morning after the Women’s March, I awoke with a vision of graffiti scrawled over a portrait. This vision led to a body of reworked portraits, featuring slogans from recent political events, quotations, and my own words. The act of writing over the portraits has been empowering and liberating. Through these portraits I give my self and my subjects a voice. The portraits move from the singular to the universal, merging image with voice.
