NEWS: one of my political pieces Disconstructing Trump has been selected (from more than 500+ artists) for the inaugural exhibit at; The Center for Contemporary Political Art. Opening Event: Sunday, Sept 30th 12-6pm. 916 G Street, Washington D.C. . . . Disconstructing Trump; framed, signed and numbered (1/10) 42x26, ink jet on paper, 2016 $1,950 . . . ABOUT THE SERIES: In April 2016, I watched Chris Matthews, of MSNBC, interview Donald Trump. I observed, for what I think was the first time during this campaign, Trump seemingly off balance, and not full of his usual confidence and narcissistic bravado. Considering his normal unflappable nature, this seemed odd, and so I decided that I needed to capture this somehow. . . . I began to photograph the TV screen with my iPhone and using the high-speed (multi-shot) function, I took about 300 photos in less than 10 minutes. With those images I began to build collages that, to me, capture Trump’s multiple personalities. In these works, I believe, his true conflicted and disturbing nature begins to be revealed. At once contradictory, creepy, binary, multi-layered and unsettling, I’ve only started to reveal the real persona. Dismantling, cutting, disassembling, rearranging then reassembling this imagery is the essence of Disconstructing Trump! . . . I spent most of May 2016 at the American Academy in Rome as a visiting artist. I arrived there with hundreds of color printouts of Trump that would eventually become this series. Having limited resources at the Academy, I did what came most naturally - I began cutting and collaging together these many disparate versions. Due to the simplicity of my studio there and lack of tools, I worked primarily from instinct, which lead to this unique solution. Then, once back to New York, we photographed the works and printed a handful of them extra large which, to me, perfectly reflects Trump’s oversized ego and Trumped up personality. . . .
