Truth, 9″ x 12″ oil on canvas
Original is sold, available as giclee or APs.
“Truth” was my memorial painting to the victims of 911. Notice the American flag refracted in the glass half empty or half full. My response to that tragedy was immediately one of our finding a balanced response to the horrific destruction. Many at the time, and even still, believe we should have carpet bombed the middle east, in one reflexive show of American resolve. Many of us believed peace and understanding was the order of the day. An eye for an eye has never worked at ending the cycle of violence in the world. But neither has pure pacifism. Clearly, our country continues to struggle to find the balance, the most effective response to terrorism. This painting calls attention to the question without offering a specific solution.
