"Perfect Nation"
acrylic on canvas 
14" x 11" 2024
I started this tiny painting thinking of corruption and cover up, thought of Jack Ruby then my mind went to fast food and our nations over stimulation of sugar/and fake sugar in food. Draw your own conclusions. Our country seems to be in disarray. Hope you all enjoyed the debate last night. 

On another note, after I finished the painting, it reminded me of Robert Colescott. I was kind of suprised how the piece reminded me so much of his work. He was a genius of openly showing the deepest paranoias that lives inside of all of us.
