The Black Lives Matter Protests deserve monumental paintings.
This protest painting is focused on the Justice Rides in Brooklyn. Many times the rides start at Grand Army Circle and move from there to the rest of the city.
The bike protests are a perfect response to the pandemic. You keep moving, so not to infect. You keep moving, so as to reach more people. You keep moving, to keep the movement moving.
I needed two paintings to say what I needed to say.
I took what I learned from the two studies that I completed this month. This is my largest painting since coming back to art in 2020. It consists of two 20” x 14” gouache paintings for a total size of 20” x 24”. I’m really happy with the sense of movement and the energy here. My goal was to have each painting stand on its own, but the whole be larger than the parts.
These paintings may be small, but they feel big.
Each piece is 20" x 14" The artworks itself total to only 20" x 28", but I painted them as if it were a 10' x 12' oil painting. I used small brushes and worked on it for weeks.
You are buying originals.
I will sign each painting on the back.
