Open to compromise

Last week I received a few emails regarding my Sarah Palin Posters. A few of you took issue with the fact that I had combined an image of Sarah Palin with text that I had written. Point well taken. To remedy this, and to show that I am open taking constructive criticism, I re-worked the original poster and used an actual quote from Palin. Below is the new version, which should put an end to any talk implying I haven’t been fair and balanced.

Eddie Colla – “My Life” Mural

Please join us for the opening reception of Eddie’s 50 ft. Mixed media painting entitled “My life” The Mural “My life” is based on a character that Eddie has developed over the last year. The character functions as a vechicle, for calling into question ideas about our changing world and the future. The text on this piece, loosely translated, reads “I have a name, but that doesn’t matter. This is my life.”. Within that life and that character, as within any life, are a complex set of overlapping contingent issues, disconnected observations and fantasies.
