PROTEST Artist Statement:

iPROTEST!

iPROTEST the imbalanced value judgment
of beautiful Mother Nature as lightweight
iPROTEST the immediate dismissal of flowers,
trees, parks, and gardens as “not meaningful art”
iPROTEST disenfranchised artists who do not
have the credentials to impress the power elite
clients of gallerists.
iPROTEST separative judgments based on
self-serving lies
iPROTEST the ongoing threat to NYC’s community
gardens from parasitic developers
iPROTEST by showing my 3 reddest paintings,
red being the color of life
and, i am PRO parks and gardens and art and artists!
