Some People with Signs
"Some People with Signs" is a new commission that I have been working on for the last months. The piece resembles a lot a piece from a few years back called "Stay on Message" the theme being the same only the size and the content being different. The idea stems from the kick I get out of people demonstrating something they feel strongly about. That can be positive or negative, it can be a sign raised in celebration or a sign raised in anger at some injustice. The circular composition brings a bit of balance to the chaos as well as being reminiscent of a mandala. The colorful nature of the signs is in sharp contrast to the black outline of the figures which in my opinion gives the work a very dynamic presence.
