This painting is the result of years of watching Donald Trump championing white supremacy, misogyny, and hatred generally, and it’s also a direct response to the death and destruction in Charlottesville, Virginia in August 2017. In a strange bit of poetry, I feel like The light of the right is why my Statue of Liberty portrait from 2008 wasn’t carrying a torch.
