"Gangster - Good Buy America Part II" Series
Black and white FBI photographs serve as a template for the artist to transform and apply her own painterly colors in creating these new works. The life of criminals, prohibitions, freedom... Acting according to one's own moral rules, principles of loyalty, disregarding daily social norms, crossing/ignoring boundaries, targeted relationships, and gaining power through corruption... The visible allure of this life is as appealing to the viewer as it is repulsive.
"Gangsters - Washed Characters" Series This series consists of portraits of famous gangsters and criminals from 20th century America.
