One of eleven brand new pieces for Trash at Hold Up Art Starting this weekend. To follow the theme used for this show, I actually pulled apart and used a bunch of shelves found in the trash for this painting and the three others like it. The framing around each shelf was stained and the shelf tops were covered in old dictionary pages, which was then the surface I painted each picture on.
Only three more days!

"The law can be stood on its head. When your ten years are up they can say, 'Here's another ten for you.' Or exile you.Yet there were times when you thought about it and you almost choked with excitement. Yes, your term really is coming to an end; the spool is unwinding..."-from One Day in the Life of Ivan Denisovich by Aleksander Sozlhenitsyn.
The Spool is Unwinding is ink, acrylic, and newspaper on wood panel. 24" x 36"
" I wish you welcome, comrades peasants! You come here not as guests, but as masters of this house, which holds the heart of the Russian Revolution. The will of millions of workers is now concentrated in this hall... There is now only one master of the Russian land: the union of the workers, soldiers and peasants..."
-Leon Trotsky. 1917. As quoted from John Reed's 10 Days that Shook the World
Peasants protesting the Tsarist regime and the bourgeois power over them.
The banner in the painting reads: Death to Freedom.
Masters of this House is ink and newspaper on wood panel. 72" x 36"
"The solemn proletariat revolutionaries with rifles half smile at the viewer as the series of seven post-card-sized drawings of a murder of crows exhibited above the painting look as if they're flying over the revolutionary's heads, lending exhilaration and movement to the freedom the men are fighting for." -from Dave Barton's review You Say You Want a Revolution?, OC Weekly 9.2.2011
I thought that was an interesting way of putting it. The only thing I want to add is that the crows lend an ominous for boding of a dark future that, at the moment seems so bright and free during their victorious revolution.
By Hundreds and Thousands is ink, acrylic, book pages on wood panel. 42.5" x 28"
Each crow above is ink and newspaper on wood panel. 4.5" x 6.5".
