Through Carelessness He Loses His Cow, 1944
oil on penny
This small body of twelve works consist of images painted on found, discarded pennies and reflect a decision to move away from making "pictorial" images. A grand finale of sorts paying homage to the binding ideologies that define our family, religious, social and political worlds. Paid tribute no less on the face of discarded coins these iconic images transcend the coins value while defacing it.
