Tower of Inequality

The Tower of Inequality idea was germinating for a long time. I had done numerous drawings, attempted a few paintings and was not satisfied with my efforts to display the fundamental imbalance that prevails in the United States.

Power is held by a few and overshadows the rest. The Horatio Alger story is a cruel and useful fable for the elite. Life is painfully different for most Americans. This disturbing reality haunts me. It is something I need to acknowledge personally, and I feel America needs to address.

When it dawned on me that the idea was best realized in 3 dimensions, the piece came together.

It recently was displayed at The Harlow Gallery in their annual juried show in Hallowell, Maine.
