Artist Statement

"All the world's a stage, and all the men and women merely players," Shakespeare.

I like to put the stage drama (world politics) into the centuries-old format of the miniature painting that approaches to glamour and grandeur of the realms.
It has a cast of national actors (countries); the characters are sometimes heroic at other times they are petty; the action is always dramatic and often tragic but based on their national interests and audiences (innocent public) merely entertained or deceived. But still drama moves and repeats like a carousel of Circus
