The most recent election brought unprecedented change to America, from New Hampshire and their all-female Congressional Delegation to the first openly homosexual senator. Marriage equality for gays and lesbians also made great strides this year, with the President becoming the first in office to explicitly support it, and the issue will continue to be a central topic of debate in years to come. These events provide the inspiration for "The Wedding," a stylized play on political cartoons in which Lady Liberty is walking down the aisle with Lady Justice.  The medium is metallic paint on wood, with the hard metals representing the adversity that gays have faced both politically and legally over the last century, and the exposed wood representing the raw naturalness of love. Halos of white and gold for the innocence and purity of spiritualism in what ever form one chooses. The piece is meant as a sort of time capsule, tied specifically to this point in our country's cultural evolution, which we will hopefully look back upon as a watershed moment for civil rights.

Joey goes to the District Of Columbia 

It's official!  Due to the response from my recent "I want YOUth" project, which features my interpretation of Uncle Sam, I will be bi-coastal for the next year.  Starting May 1st. 2012, I'll be spending most of the year in Washington, DC painting a private commission and working on other proposed projects. I'm honored that my artwork has taken on a new level and I will once again be working to create art for a government agency, along with a private collector.  During my time in the District, my current artwork will be remain available on the west coast until in San Francisco.
