Fifty Bad Beasts
Paint 50 six-inch square paintings in 50 days. That's the idea behind the Sanchez Art Center's 50 x 50 exhibit.
Curator/gallerist Jack Fischer (Fischer Gallery, SF) invited me to participate in 2017.
I hired 50 beasts to model for my paintings. I shouldn't have.
Why I Shouldn't Have Hired Them
They were each asked to choose, and hold up, specific color swatches. When viewed all together the swatches were to represent the colors of the color wheel (right image below). Instead they all picked gold because they are greedy and selfish.
Let's Have a Closer Look
I wish I hadn't paid them anything.
Eight More of Them
They pretended to have language comprehension difficulties and misunderstood my instructions. Nope. They all write blogs in multiple languages about the benefits of a greedy lifestyle.
