Intellectual, 22"x28," oil on canvas

Intellectual, detail


This body of work takes a serious look at classical portraiture and the role it has played in society over time.  To illustrate current society in the USA, the stereotypes were chosen and painted; using techniques, compositional cues and other ideology from art history.  In addition, the model for all these pieces was consistent, keeping in tradition of the Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood, whose works evoked the a similar commentary.  Works completed 2010-2012.
