Shaken awake by the harsh and piercing light of reality, artists are breaking through the aesthetic fog to reanimate figurative painting, indispensible in a new radical painting movement, a back to the roots movement in reaction to the over-technisation and remoteness of the art world. This art movement will come from the people, not from some prim gallery, but from people painting for people, trying to understand and interpret what we are experiencing as Americans at this moment in time.
Radical art is radical content in a radical form. Radical, getting to the roots of our situation by plunging into the collective unconscious cesspool and taking accountability for what you find. Artists must help this country find a new identity that includes many difficult truths. Art holds a mirror to the system, but it creates a burning point that can start a fire in people´s heads.
