Amity Drift: 24×24″ encaustic on birch panel completed in 2004. You could also call this one “Should I Stay or Should I Go” if you’re a Clash fan. Once again you can see how the gesso becomes an important part of the painting. I like the ambiguity of this piece. Is the crowd welcoming the figure from above, or sending it away? Likewise, is the figure in the bubble happy about arriving or struggling to avoid banishment?
