Double Entendre

4 ½” x 4”


oil on panel, wood

Part of “Il Portico,” this painting depicts a double-cloning of myself after death, as a Caucasian and African American.  We are wearing complementary-colored garments, and an albino squirrel, symbolizing nature, is biting our fingertips.  Nature is, literally, “biting us back” for what we have done!  This painting’s exploration of a fluid identity, shifting between different genders and races, continues to the present day.
