Revolution

Title: “Revolution”
Medium: acrylic on canvas
Size: 24″X36″

Story: I consider myself a revolutionary in that I believe that art can
bring about political change. John Lennon certainly believed in that idea.

But it is never simple. Change can bring about unexpected consequences.

I have included a quote on the surface of my painting, made popular by
the physicist, Richard Feynman. He heard it from a monk. “Every man is
given a key to heaven. The same key fits the gates to hell”.

I just love those words of wisdom.

The same nuclear knowledge can cure cancer or it can create a nuclear
bomb with the ability to destroy us all.

We are certainly capable of doing both and I find that interesting.
