This collection of paintings goes back to 2001 when I began the Patriot Games series in the aftermath of 9/11 and the Enron and WorldCom scandals. The website went on-line in September 2003. The latest series, An Organized Crime, was begun in 2011.
The folly of our political leaders continues to be
“the invention of endangered ‘national security,’
the invention of ‘vital interest,’ the invention of a
‘commitment’ which rapidly assume[s] a life of
its own, casting a spell over the inventor.”
The March of Folly: From Troy to Vietnam by Barbara W. Tuchman
