Imperialist Nostalgia – Eugene Rodriguez
Oil and wax on linen on panels
Statement from Eugene Rodriguez:
As the historical figures look back at us and possibly to a time when the empire was new, they all appear as red-hot embers. Perhaps they are caught in a house burning. However, their cool, slightly detached, and somewhat melancholic stances give the impression of not being too worried. Could it be the cool blue floor keeping their temperatures down or is that run-off from the melting polar ice caps?
