Egg Tempera
Private collection
Joe and Emily Lowe Award for a Contemporary Painting, 80th Annual of the Allied Artists of America

“The artist has always been fascinated with history so the stories associated with the trunk of his wife’s grandfather as it made it’s voyage across the Atlantic provided a fertile box full of material for the imagination. In it the artist saw a symbol of all of the people who have migrated from Europe to America and he drew a parallel with the Eskimo curlew decoy as a symbol of the migration of birds as they wing their way on their yearly journey. Here the two join forces to form “The Migrator”.
