Curator Nicole Buckingham has selected a series of work from my Response to Machiavelli abstract series for exhibit at the CCBC Dundalk Art Gallery, in Baltimore, MD.  This series of paintings highlights the role that morality does or does not play in our political discourse. While politicians of all flavors are more than willing to throw the "god" word around like that Power is their best friend, are the decisions that they make ultimately morally based or simply politically expedient? Machiavelli proposed in his book, The Prince, that the "ends justify the means;" this series of paintings responds to that premise, offering a truly moral perspective on political issues. The paintings are based in the words of some of history's greatest social and political philosophers, including Nelson Mandela, Gandhi, Mencius, Meister Eckhart, Baal Shem Tov, the Sufi masters of Islam and many others.
