18. "St. George and the Dragon"
January, 28, 2021 new!
This work represents a little-used theme of copying another’s work, but periodizing it, sometimes subtly as in this piece,
and sometimes not. The leitmotif of George slaying a dragon has been painted and printed many times in art history.
So, I thought I would add my take on this incident. Looking around my studio, I noticed hiding on my table’s corner a paper towel with
its metal stand going up thru the roll. Might this not have been similar to the way George killed the beast, running his sword up
the middle of the animal’s body? It might. I added in the background a mix of cultural touches for non-denominational’s sake.
