Believe Me (It’ll be Great)

These paintings evolved from the Trashquilt project.  During the 2016 USA election, I started noticing the repetition of the words “Believe me” and “Trust me” as qualifiers. Usually, these words are followed by lies.

Trashquilt Tête du Travers

This series of large drawings was made surrounding the 2016 US election. The text, “Between the Darkness of the Sun and Moon, ” was written in March 2015, five days after a young pilot intentionally flew an airplane with 149 passengers into the French Alps.

I continued working on it in 2017 and began to add ink over the oil paintings that were printed from the ‘Trashquilt’ It’s a meditation on how one thing, person and event leaves a mark.
