Larry McKim – November 2017 – Artist Statement
“Sleeping on the Streets”: This series of 16, free-standing paintings was inspired by my growing awareness of homelessness. Images are not based on individuals I have encountered, but instead are generic images from the internet which I use as sources to create photo-montages. The phenomenon of people asleep in public places reflects the challenge of homelessness in the most stark way possible. These paintings are free-standing and mounted back-to-back.
