The Future Is Woke
40”x30” oil on linen 2017
With millions of others, I marched this weekend in the #WomensMarch. Our crowd in Los Angeles numbered around 750,000. The Future Is Woke is the first in a series of paintings exploring this time of change.
Artists often use their creations as a sort of reflecting device that mirrors and focuses the viewers attention on social and political change. As Marvin Gaye sang so poignantly- “What’s going on.”
As we carry the spirit of the Women's March forward: On Saturday, January 28th 2017, from 1-3pm at the Santa Monica Art Studios, a vibrant panel discussion on Art in the Time of Trump will be held.
