Description of “LAND OF CHADS AND OYSTERS”
“Land of Chads & Oysters” is a play on the presidential election in Florida where the outcome centered on the “hanging chads” ballots. The painting has a pleasing neutral palette and features a small State of Florida image, outlines around vertical manilla shapes and some gestural sweeps suggesting oysters. The second image shows it hanging at Sothebys International Real Estate office in Cashiers, NC during an exhibition in 2019. It was in my Solo Exhibition of 22 large abstracts at Galleria Misto at Mahaffey Theater, Duke Energy Center for The Arts, St. Petersburg, FL Nov. 2019-Feb. 2020.
