I’m so pleased to be participating in the 9th Bridgette Mayer Gallery benefit exhibition, this year supporting Help Us Adopt and the Dina Wind Art Foundation~

Portrait of G. Washington is an extension of my Whiskey Rebellion exhibition currently on view at the Museum of the American Revolution. It features a photograph of the vintage decanter that I used in the sculpture series, collaged onto distressed, manufactured camouflage canvas. Inspired by Jasper Johns and Hew Locke, I stenciled the work’s title onto the canvas and added 3-dimensional message buttons and pins to Washington’s coat, engaging in dialogue with the Founding Father. Finally, I poured a layer of epoxy resin over the whole panel, to secure the elements and add an overall sheen and transformation.”
