Cover Up

The plan for this piece was a pure collage. Then I started painting, dripping, playing and manipulating. I began to see that covering the reality shown in the articles was appropriate. Has there ever been an administration that manipulated what we are told more that Bush II? Yellow cake from Niger, Saddam and bin Laden as best buddies, "Mission Accomplished", WMDs, no spying on Americans without a warrant, "We do not torture", etc, etc.

As the bumper sticker says, "If you're not angry you're not paying attention."

"Coverup" Mixed media, collage (WSJ, NYT, N&O) on canvas.
