People With No Names - The Undocumented #56
This painting is Oil on linen 8"x 16". The immigrants are painted with space between them to visually hint at their alone-ness and the winter jackets are for their protection against the cold and a metaphor for their need for protection against the cold reception awaiting them...even as they seek to come to the United States to provide us with produce and meat. I stood in my local grocery store produce section last night and wondered how all that food got to me.
