Hands Up Don’t Shoot

Don’t Shoot, acrylic and spray paint on canvas, 32 x 36 in., 2014

Roller painting inspired by the sight of protesters in Ferguson, Missouri. This figure appeared Hands Up in a few minutes, painting happened so fast that I had to lay it down to slow down the drips, and call it done.  Inspired by the power of people marching and protesting of Ferguson, calling out against violence by law enforcement agents; this is an important conversation that must be sustained and kept up front. The use of extreme force has become all to common place, and is disproportionate in many cases to the circumstances.  This paintings might appeared unfinished or a bit raw, but the conversation on this subject is unfinished and extremely raw.
