TRIBES 84x66 1987

I find this painting both joyous and disturbing. There is a party going on. This was an accurate reflection of my life at 30. The hands are disturbing because they are repeated in the banner and hat, reminiscing a fascist emblem. This painting launched a Native American series I produced encompassing genocide, childhood, and Judaism. Did the painting need to be 84"? No, but with age comes wisdom, humility and practicality.
