This series was born out of an unshakable heaviness which I needed to get out from under. I had been doing research for a series on World War II, and through that research, was inundated with images of human rights violations, both past and present.
I was unable to think of anything else, and in an attempt to free my mind and move forward, I painted about the images which affected me most. The titles of the paintings will lead you (through a simple internet search) to the person or persons whose story I painted about. (L to R: Central Park Five; Jabbari; Missouri; Paparazzi; Shepherd's Fence)
