Queror 9, 2014Oils on US tactical fabric
20"h x 16"w


The Queror series (2014) of oil portraits are painted directly on camo technical fabric currently used by the US military. These pieces are a reaction to something a young vet suffering from PTSD told me. Now a father to a toddler he lamented that the camo never comes off. Here, camo is the fabric that grounds the image, and like the existential suffering of those who have worn the uniform in war, it never comes off.
