Political Stripes


Hand Pulled Serigraph ~ 19 Stencils

2014 ~ 4 x 3”­_10 x 8 cm

Edition 51,  Artist Proofs 5

Funny political memes. A chameleon wrapped around a microphone blends into the political stripes behind. He says what his audience wants to hear.

The false chameleon in this serigraph is represents a certain kind of politician. It is able to pattern the colors on its skin to blend into whatever reality it is next to. This funny political memes is directed at the politicians who’s facts only resemble their political ambition, and not any version of reality.
I thought the false chameleon would be a good animal to wrap around a microphone in this chameleon art work. The chameleon represents the blending politicians do in order to be part of a political party. I believe most politicians start out with honorable intent, and some, the best, maintain their integrity through out their political career.
But there are other politicians that I have heard espousing bizarre versions of reality, purely for political gain. There is a natural tendency to slant a speech in the direction of your beliefs, that is pretty normal, and mostly okay as long as you don’t mess with the facts. But some politicians go way over the top. If you have independently researched a topic that they are discussing. and are familiar with the facts, it can literally be jaw dropping to listen to them create an alternate version of reality.
