STREET PIETA   Mixed Media on Gallery Wrapped Canvas   24" X 30"               $3,500

Always studying the work of the great masters, I was inspired to do a pieta of my own reflecting a more contemporary scenario using my a high relief realistic technique. While it seems a bit violent, actual killings like this play out every day in modern urban settings. Is the tragedy or compassion any the less?  In this more recent setting, we are actually in a position to do something about it. This was the first in a series of staged compositions. The original is much more impressive than the photo. I guess you could define it as "Urban Art," but not necessarily a piece the average person would put over their living room sofa, but are you average?
