Video Presentation of Oil Painting "Progression"

Carrying on my experiment of showcasing my paintings with video presentations, I am to discuss a 2009 oil painting, Progression, conceived and executed after the dark era of George W. Bush, and the supposed change had took place in the U.S.  Alas.  It was not to be.  The hope was elusive, and the human rights abuses we collectively permitted largely remain in place.  The long list of human sufferings continue.

My painting is a collage of iconography images, from Jesus carrying the cross, Michelangelo's slave sculpture, David's Liberty Leads People, and the hooded prisoner in Abu Ghraib. The focal point of the painting is a sad man, symbolizing the sorrow and compassion of humankind.
