My Vision of Peace
The Robber Baron in this painting is symbolic of the modern day, unaware, 1% corporate CEO. The viewer has the opportunity to recreate this character into the shaman / Hierophant shown planting his circle headed African staff into the ground, drawing up the earth's vital spiritual energy. He invokes a new dawn of recognition. He sees all is connected and there is no "us" and "them." His awareness unfolds visually in the deconstruction of his bowler hat into fragments of cut redwood trees ascending into the heavens and drawing down the Doves of peace from a higher consciousness. the horizontal plane with it's factories belching filth are the results of his rapacious, myopic ambition and behind him are the other yet to be awakened greedists.


Medium
This Painting is oil on canvas 36"x48"

Nice use of the Bowler hat in this piece. It goes hand in hand with the emergence of the economic development in the United States.Together, they have given rise to the popular steampunk look. Personally, I enjoy the references and steam powered aesthetic of this piece and the period in time: the industrialized 19th century.

I really admire this type of work for the ability to visualize and create a theme, skill and use of color, scale. Very professional and very intellectual piece.
