‘Domesticated’, 24″ X32″, oil on panel. 1996. (Homo domesticus)
There are about 100 pieces in this series scattered around the earth. I still have 40 or so here in my studio/gallery. Some people don’t care for them. They have been in several shows the year after they were painted. I can only say some poeple can get very upset if you say the wrong thing, even if its a painting. One show was protested so loudly the owner became afraid and removed my work. Now that’s mob censorship. The show was titled “Want”, and this was one of them, probably the least offensive of them all. I highly doubt they will be shown at any gallery anywhere near me anytime soon.
