2015 - 2018

In 2013 I came back to a country barely recognizable. Ten years abroad had removed me from my own culture. I immediately became aware of how harsh America had become post 9/11. Cell phones and the social media brought to light the killing of people of color at the hands of the police. America's Achilles heel was again exposed but the frequency of this murder spree and the impunity within the judicial system was an outrage. The polarization of the country combined with an inept, dysfunctional government caused me anxiety and concern. As an artist, I naturally reacted. 

Now, we witness the weakening of Democracies around the world. 

 New Art Brut is a reaction to a world in upheaval. To see what this movement is about go to: www.newartbrut.com
