MUGSHOT : Painting the least wanted Art exhibition
An Exhibition of a series of oil paintings, drawings, prints and film based on 1940's,50's and 60's American Police mugshots. He paints people on the edge of society, those in the wrong place at the wrong time. Some of the 'crimes' commited such as homosexuality are no longer considered illegal today and I am fascinated by changing attitudes and shifting tolerances together with mistakes in judgement that led to the subjects being arrested.
