The Drone Zone - Work In Progress, August 2 2012

The Drone Zone, 2012, acrylic on wood panel, 18 x 96 inches (unfinished).

One of the pieces I'm currently working on and delighted to have a couple weeks ahead of me to throw my energies into trying to get it ready for an event in Utica later in the month. It's actually an elaboration on the "Landscape With Soup Cans & Trees" ideas circa 2009 painted on a section of wall boarding I'd pulled from a heap along W. 28th St. when living in NYC. 

The depiction is of Syracuse about to be overrun by a barbarian army of trees, soup cans, folding chairs & small round tables. Meanwhile, unmanned aerial drones (the worst kind, according to that pinhead Alex Jones) circle ominously overhead, armed with weapons-grade "bath salts" delivery systems just waiting for their chance to strike.

Here's the painting it was derived from, 18 x 48 inches, acrylics on canvas & part of both my 2009 Sparky Town and 2012 Shoppingtown gallery exhibitions where it proved surprisingly popular:
