Faceless men and paper crowns

“Head(1)” (left) and “Head(2)” (right), each 12 x 16 inches, acrylic, graphite and charcoal on wood, 2018

I recently completed these two paintings of faceless men with paper crowns. I developed the concept for these paintings while listening to a journalist speak about reporting. He said that journalists, to protect themselves, report what has happened but don’t report names or point blame.
