Throwback Thursday

This is an older painting done in 2010 and is called "The Green Machine".  It is a play of words since I associate it with the 'Mean Machine' which was the prisoner football team in the movie The Longest Yard.  I often use allegory in my work to connect it to real-world and/or real-time issues.  I try to be as subtle and obtuse as possible for maximum abstraction and optimal interpretation.  In this case, the machine is the fabric presses filmed in the movie as the inmates were chanting 'Mean Machine'.  It is meant to reflect solidarity at a time of oppression or disadvantage.
