Artist's Description

Inspired by Obama’s humble words “I am not a perfect man, I will not be a perfect president”. The vortex is built around a picture taken of him as he announced he was running. The bottom and left spans the arc of the civil rights movement -“I am not a perfect man” reminded me of the I am a man signs carried by sanitation workers in their 1968 Memphis strike. Their signs can be seen throughout the piece.

Obama’s face is made up of people attending Obama rallies, king speeches, the campaign, and inauguration.

The right side is packed with hundreds of protest images from across the political spectrum. and is intended to reflect Barack’s expressed interest in being surrounded by people of opposing political views.

This portrait is a digital collage. Comprised of images celebrating the genius of a system designed for change and the greatness of the American right to protest. It took me about 2 1/2 months to create.
