The conception had no obligation to or consideration for the end result, only to the task at hand.  Simply, these portraits result from a desire to watch the performance that has now become integrated with current events. Opposition Perception is a gathering of images representing opinions and language from commentators who have their own agenda; to demonize the other side. Defamatory terminology tells the viewer as much about these pundits as the opponents they are assessing. As the artist began his task, the consistency in approach and a high degree of attention formulated into a series. Contour line drawings and the sfumato technique lend to the theme as well as the artist’s use of media. Out of this task, came something unexpected. These portraits, purposely delinquent in technique and sadly in character, were given validity and dignity not afforded by their nature.
