So, How does a visual artist portray her feelings and contempt for the major players in the collapse of Wall Street and Main Street America? With her latest painting titled, “Liberty and Justice for Who???” This is a painting that sends a powerful message aimed at the “liberties”
At first glance the painting appears to be a contemporary/
The plaque nestled safely in the Statue’s arm is another sad example of the woeful state of the economy. A house symbol with the words “for sale” and “foreclosed”
A green and white tattered flag atop one of the buildings presents a forlorn site that accurately depicts the sentiment of most Americans regarding the current economic situation. The 50 stars are replaced by a smattering of dollar symbols that are also spread strategically throughout other areas of the painting.
There are little details throughout the painting that constantly draw the viewer back to the message and the ultimate question addressed in the title.
As a political statement this painting has a strong message that begs the question “where are the liberties for ALL of America, not just the rich and privileged?” This is a must see work of art that will become known as a symbol for the frustration and disappointment towards our government and financial sector that has let Main Street America down.
Megan Duncason is an artist to watch, and see what new and powerful messages/statements she creates with her Artistic vision.
