Ecce Homo

The ongoing Ecce Homo series of mixed-media images are electrostatic prints that begin as appropriated digital images of Donald J. Trump political rallies. These are are manipulated digitally, then scaled up in size and printed. The printed images are then used as the starting point for drawing and painting which simplifies the complexity of the image and stains the subjects.

Ecce Homo ("behold the man") are the Latin words used by Pontius Pilate when he presents the scourged Jesus Christ, bound and crowned with thorns to a hostile crowd shortly before his Crucifixion. These images are created in response to political changes unfolding on a global scale. Two specific events that triggered the making of these images were the British vote to leave the European Union, known as Brexit, and the election of Donald J. Trump as the 45th president of the United States. The Ecce Homo series of images bear witness to this political change.

Ecce Homo (Images from Moscow Notebooks)

A trip to Moscow for the month of December 2016, has allowed me the chance to study Russian Icon Painting, Russian Constructivism and Soviet Socialist Realism within the context of contemporary Russian culture. All the while, I am reading news of Donald J. Trump adding primarily ex-Goldman Sachs and ex-Generals to his cabinet. It is within this experience that I am working on these smaller scaled images contained within notebooks.
