Description Protest painting done by Bodlak in response to the covering-up of Picasso's work on the occassion of Powell's presentation at the UN in 2003 for the lead up to war in Iraq. Artist David Bodlak expresses his horror at the way the tapestry of Picasso's anti-war painting,Guernica, was covered up so that it wouldn't detract from US Secretary of State Colin Powell's efforts to convince people to GO TO WAR. The figures in the work seem to be tearing at a covering cloth, trying to pull it down as they express their anguish.
Sara Fraser, Pearland, TX Member Since September 2008 Artist Statement Prints available in this Store are primarily from works by me, artist Sara (Sawyer Bodlak) FRASER, lifetime studio artist. I studied at The ART INSTITUTE of CHICAGO and ISU for my Master's in Art Education. My art includes portrait sketches, oil paintings, acrylics, prints and photography. One gallery here in IMAGEKIND shows work I have done over many years to express my impressions of SPAIN which I revisit annually and where I lived and worked for over a decade. Another gallery called OZ includes "spherical photography" by my husband, DAVID FRASER. A few photos in the photography gallery were taken by graphic designer "canica", my daughter Heather Bodlak, and then enhanced by me. In one of the galleries here, you will find prints of works done by David Bodlak, MFA, which I have included in order to honor him and his creative life which has ended too soon. It is a small selection from original paintings and drawings of his which are in permanent collections in both the USA and SPAIN. We hope you will consider adding some Imagekind prints of our work to your art collection.
