Cesar Chavez and United Farm Workers

During the pandemic, I have been thinking a lot about essential workers and those still in the fields working to feed America. This series is an ode to them.

Magripplethorpe Series

My love of surreal art  led me to the works of René Magritte while my admiration for queer artists led me to Robert Mapplethorpe. With my continued interest in street art and pop art, I created the following mash-ups.  I was thinking of the Mapplethorpe obscenity trials, pornography vs art, surrealism and race.

Willfull Ignorance

Inspired by a Guy Bourdin surreal photo, I created a stencil design in response to those who refuse to educate themselves on race and equity issues.
