American Diversity, 2023
Acrylic and stencils collaged on canvas
18 x 36 inches
The "American Diversity" painting is a graphic depiction of the melting pot America has become. From our earliest history, the symbolic sequence takes us through all thenationalities and colors that have built the foundation for our amazing country and that comprise the United States of America today. The dramatic color blocks pay tribute to the diversity of America yet they have imperfect edges, just as our great nation also has imperfections, and the unevenly placed stencil letters reflect the ups and downs of our history. But overall this work exalts the power, richness and boldness inherent in the American vision.
