As a relic of a moment in American history associated with chicanery and paranoia, this [work] is a bold assertion that truth lies on the surface.
- Long A three-quarter black-and-white portrait of Richard Nixon seemingly hand-colored with garish tones: His face, a light blue-green with yellow lips, stands out against his pink suit and orange background. Written below the portrait is the directive "VOTE MCGOVERN."
Works on View
- Long A body of black text is printed on a white rectangle with even borders of white space on all four sides. The text reads "I feel most colored when I am thrown against a sharp white background," repeated without punctuation or line breaks to separate the repetitions. The text is printed in a stenciled font with gritty smudges that become more and more prominent as the text continues, eventually blending with the text at the bottom of the image, rendering it almost illegible. It has a narrow black frame.
- Long A painting of a bald, mustachioed, middle-aged person standing against a solid dark terra-cotta background is rendered in loose brushstrokes. He wears a yellowish long sleeve shirt and blue jeans. While fully clothed, the man's bare left leg appears to jut out from the side of his hip, knee bent.
