color photograph with comic-strip-style illustrations in black acrylic on white paper, mounted and framed
The comic strip comments on the sky-high prices of the art market, the deep pockets needed to enter into that market, and the exclusive, insider nature of art collecting. This is juxtaposed against a photograph that “represents at least one person who never looks back” at a homeless man you’ve passed on the street.
This sketch shows ancient ruins. The top half of the page is left empty with sky. At the righ is an apsed portico and from it, to the left of the page, runs a wall studded with windows. In the foreground is a set of stairs with shrubbery overgrowing.
In the foreground, a group of several figures, dressed in graeco-roman clothing, surround a man lying in bed. The setting has classical architectural components such as columns and pediments and a large stone sundial in the upper left corner. The figures are painted in bright colors (blue, white, gold and red) but the rest of the composition is painted in muted colors (gray, brown, dark green). Most figures are gazing up at the sundial.
This narrative painting depicts a scene from the Old Testament (2 Kings 20:1-11) account of the illness and cure of Hezekiah, 13th King of Judah. After being told by the prophet Isaiah that he will die, Hezekiah prays to God. Isaiah receives word from God that the king will recover in 3 days and be granted 15 more years of life. As a sign that this will happen, God causes the shadow of the sun on the sundial to go backwards.
In this painting, a group of men are gathered around the bed where King Hezekiah lies ill. Three men are talking to each other, but the rest, including the king, are staring and gesturing toward a large sundial in the upper left corner of the scene. The prophet Isaiah, in a white cloak, stands at the top of the stairs, above the group.
Although the subject matter is a biblical story, the setting and clothing of the figures is Graeco-Roman.
